Employers in Texas can choose not to carry Texas Workers Compensation insurance but they will face a legal penalty which provides that an injured employee can hire an attorney and sue the employer for negligence similar to a car accident lawsuit. Workers Comp laws limit the amount injured workers can recover from an employer but if the employer chooses to “self-insure” an injured employee is not limited in the amount that can be recovered.
