Texas remains unique in many ways. Texas state law allows businesses to opt out of carrying workers' compensation insurance. These businesses are commonly referred to as "non-subscribers." Companies operating as non-subscribers often provide their own occupational injury benefit plans. Litigation of claims arising in this unique setting requires experienced counsel.
