Take a look at this link from Houston’s ABC affiliate, KTRK’s investigative report. A police officer shot in the line of duty and years later he cannot get medical care. It is sensational because it is a police officer who is fighting to get medical care approved but his experience is no different than workers in any other field. The Texas Workers Compensation system was passed by a legislature that promised lifetime medical care but as anyone who has ever dealt with workers compensation in Texas knows, lifetime medical care is a farce. The Insurance industry is simply not set up to provide lifetime medical care to claimants.
