Videos make workers’ comp easier to understand

Workers’ compensation can be confusing. Most people don’t even think about it until after they get hurt at work. But if you have a work-related injury or illness, you’ll need a guide to the Texas workers’ compensation system.


A new video series from the Texas Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), can help you get started.

“People are busy these days and are much more likely to watch a video to learn about something new,” says Commissioner of Workers’ Compensation Ryan Brannan. “Part of our mission is to educate all system participants and this is a proactive way to help injured employees get a better understanding of workers’ comp.”

The "Your Guide to Workers’ Comp" videos give you the basics of workers’ comp. We made them with the injured employee in mind.

You can watch all the videos, or just the ones that apply to you. Here are the video topics:

  • Workers’ Comp Basics
  • Your Benefits
  • Returning to Work
  • Doing the Math
  • Disputes vs. Complaints
  • Resolving Disputes
  • How to Get Help

The videos are a great way to get started. If you need more help after watching them, call DWC customer service at 1-800-252-7031, option 1.
