Legal Question in Workers Comp in Texas
Broken hand at work
My daughter (23) broke her hand at work. She went to the nurse on the job and was told that it was probably a sprain. Turned out o be badly broken, requiring surgery, pins, screws, etc. Her employer is denying coverage on his worker comp insurance. How do I approach the employer to get this taken care of? Do I have any recourse against the employer or their insurance? Should I retain an attorney or attempt to settle this matter myself?

Re: Broken hand at work
how did she break her hand? what exactly happened? Whom did she speak with regarding coverage? Did she file any claim? Do you receive a letter denying the claim?
