Texas is one of the few states that does not require companies to carry worker's compensation insurance, although most companies do choose to have it because it protects them from being sued should an employee be injured on the job.
If an employer chooses not to have worker’s compensation insurance, and an employee is injured while on the job, the employee can sue the company directly, something that they would not be able to do if the company carried workers' compensation insurance.
Generally speaking, the employer loses several very important rights in a legal case against them if they do not have workers' compensation insurance.
