Non-Subscriber Work Injuries

Walmart Non-Subscriber Work Injury Claims

Legal Representation for Walmart Employees in Fort Worth

Walmart has chosen not to be a part of Texas’s statewide workers’ compensation program. The world’s largest retailer is technically a “non-subscriber” in Texas, meaning it provides its own customized insurance plan to cover work-related injuries suffered by its employees in the state. If you work at a Walmart in Fort Worth, you will have to file a non-subscriber work injury claim to pursue damages and compensation, which can get complicated—and fast.

Daspit Law Firm can help you understand your rights as a Walmart employee in Fort Worth who has suffered a job-related injury. Using our extensive legal experience, we are ready to guide you through the process, pursue maximized damages, and stand up to Walmart and its insurance providers.

Do not deal with your non-subscriber work injury claim on your own. Call Daspit Law Firm in Fort Worth at (888) 237-3705 today.

Walmart Work Injuries & Worker Benefits

You are not out of luck if you get hurt while working at a Fort Worth Walmart. The company can still be held accountable for any negligence on its part. Since Walmart’s provided insurance plans are not regulated by the state, it can have many nuances, exclusions, rules, etc. Perhaps most notably, a non-subscriber work injury claim requires you to prove that your own negligence did not contribute to your injuries, much like you would in any other personal injury lawsuit.

Incidents that could happen while working in a Walmart vary, such as:

  • Slips and falls on loose items, debris, spills, etc.
  • Struck by product falling from top shelves
  • Falls off ladders when stocking shelves
  • Collisions in a busy parking lot
  • Skeletomuscular injuries due to lifting heavy boxes
  • Violent acts between workers or shoppers

If you are hurt for any of these reasons and more while working at Walmart, you should get ready to pursue benefits. Although Walmart has chosen to customize its workers’ comp insurance plan to its liking, injured workers are typically provided coverage that pays for necessary medical treatments and a portion of their wages while they recover.

You should not expect extended or permanent benefits, though. Being a non-subscriber has allowed Walmart to specifically craft the benefits it gives to injured workers, which usually means permanent disability is excluded. The same can be expected of death benefits for a work-related death.

Improving Your Non-Subscriber Work Injury Claim

The best approach to handle a non-subscriber work injury claim filed after you are hurt while working for Walmart in Fort Worth is to treat it like both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim. You should start thinking about collecting evidence that shows you did not cause your own injuries due to negligence, such as testimonies from coworkers or video footage from Walmart’s security systems. You should also follow instructions from your supervisor about how to file a claim with Walmart’s insurance company.

For any on-the-job injury, you should always:

  • Tell your supervisor as soon as you can. Waiting too long to notify a supervisor not only looks suspicious but could also invalidate your claim if a statute of limitations expires.
  • Get further instructions about how to proceed with your claim from your supervisors and follow them as closely as you can.
  • Talk to an attorney. Walmart’s insurance company could undervalue or deny your claim. You might also need further damages from Walmart through a personal injury claim, separate from your non-subscriber work injury claim. An attorney can help you in either situation.
