YOU DON’T HAVE A CASE because Lowe’s is a Texas Non-subscriber employer, and they don’t have Workers’ Comp insurance!
Not True! This statement is very misleading. While it’s true that Lowe’s does not have workers’ compensation insurance, they do have a work injury benefit plan that is supposed to provide medical and wage benefits to an injured worker.

YOU CAN’T SEE YOUR OWN DOCTORS!
Not true! There is no law that requires you to only see the doctors that Lowe’s insurance or sends you to. This is simply a way to maintain control of doctors you see and what they diagnose you with. You can always see your own doctor when you are not getting the answers and results you want. (Read More: Is it True that I can only see my Employer’s Doctors in My Job Injury Case?)
YOU DON’T HAVE A CASE BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T COMPLETE A REPORT!
This is not true. While reporting your injury immediately after it happens is advised, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a case if you report a short time later. Reporting requirements like a 24-hour time limit is usually part of the requirements set forth by employers in order to limit how many claims qualify for medical and wage benefits. Again, even if you report outside of the time limit, you could still have a claim. (Read More: Do I Need to Complete a Written Report to Have a Work Injury Case Against My Employer?)
YOU’LL GET FIRED if you report an injury, seek medical attention or consult a lawyer for your case!
Not True. While employers in Texas can fire you for any reason, it’s not typical for employers to fire you once you report an injury. Also, consulting a lawyer is a confidential communication that will not be disclosed to Lowe’s until you hire us.

YOU SHOULD WAIT until your claim gets denied before you hire a lawyer.
Don’t Wait! Lowe’s will start working on defending your case almost immediately after it happens! They will take statements and use them against you later if you decide to file a lawsuit. The doctors will delay treatment and keep you from finding out the truth about how injured you really are!
