  • Pizza joint in Texas

    A friend of mine was in route delivering a pizza. She was rear end by an illegal Mexican. He went to jail and got deport. But know she is hurt laid up in bed cant work and the Owner of the pizza said he can’t help her. Is that right or is there some help out there for her. Is she entitled to some type of compensation from the company?

    If she was injured in the course of working (which it sounds like if she was delivering a pizza at the time) she should file a workers compensation claim. Her employer is required to have copverage and if they do not there are state policies that protect injured workers of uninsured employers. She should contact her employer as to who their insurance is with (this should also be posted in the workplace by law). If that fails, tell her to contact her state's workers compensation commission. she can file a claim directly with them.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
