OWCP: Federal Workers’ Comp in Texas
Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Representing
Federal Government Workers In Dallas And Statewide
Federal employees in Texas who are injured on the job are not governed by state law. Work injury claims are instead administered by the federal Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). To get all entitled benefits and protect your rights over the course of your disability, you need an attorney who is familiar with the intricacies of federal workers’ compensation law.
At The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., you are represented by an experienced lawyer who exclusively represents federal government employees. From our principal office in Dallas, we represent employees of federal agencies throughout Texas, including the DFW area, Austin, San Antonio, Houston and beyond.

You Have To Know Your Rights To Protect Your Rights
If you are injured in the course of employment, you are obligated to report the injury to your supervisor or employer. This is important whether you were hurt in an accident or developed an injury over time, such as a back injury or repetitive stress injury.
You are entitled to reasonable and necessary medical care and you are entitled to wage loss benefits for as long as you are unable to return to your job. You may also be eligible for disability retirement benefits or vocational rehabilitation services for a sufficiently limiting injury.
Have You Been Denied Benefits Under Federal Workers’ Compensation?
The OWCP claims process can be complicated and many injured workers find that their claim is denied as not disabling or not work-related. Other federal employees encounter problems with incorrect calculation of benefits, pressure to return to work prematurely or attempts to downgrade or terminate benefits. Our knowledgeable attorneys represent clients in appeals of adverse workers’ comp decisions, from requests for reconsideration to administrative appeals through the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. We are committed to upholding the rights of federal employees who have been injured while serving their agency and their country.
