Nonsubscriber Defense

Nonsubscription law is changing, but with representation from SettlePou, you’re covered. The practice of nonsubscription—opting out of the Texas Workers’ Compensation System— is becoming more popular and the laws around it are evolving. Because SettlePou’s Nonsubscriber Defense attorneys have been focused on representing nonsubscribers for nearly 20 years, we’re expertly positioned to defend such entities. In fact, we’ve even had a hand in shaping new case law.

Our Nonsubscriber Defense practice focuses on the defense of lawsuits brought by the employees of nonsubscribers. We have extensive experience representing Texas employers in both on-the-job injury claims and claims for benefits under the federal ERISA statute. This practice includes representation of nonsubscribing employers in United States District Court, Texas District and County Courts, and arbitration tribunals throughout the State of Texas. In addition, we have successfully represented nonsubscribing employers in various courts of appeal, including the Texas Supreme Court.

We understand employment issues, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issues, and the intricacies of nonsubscriber law, and we are prepared to protect our clients—just as they protect their employees.
