Getting Hurt on the Job at Amazon
Typically, companies carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
Nonetheless, in Texas, companies can “opt-out” of this insurance program and have private insurance. These are called “non-subscribers.”
Amazon is a non-subscriber company. This means that Amazon workers’ compensation is not provided by Amazon locations in Texas in the traditional sense.
However, you could file a claim for Amazon workers’ compensation through Amazon’s private insurance plan. This will likely be your best option if your injury was no one’s fault.
However, if Amazon or one of its employees caused your injuries, you might be able to file a lawsuit against Amazon.
This is because non-subscribers lose their immunity from many suits filed against them.
Reach out to our attorneys today, and we will work diligently to get you the compensation you need to recover.
