In the state of Texas there is a set of processes that allow knowing when an injury has contributed to a more serious condition and even death. That is, if a work accident has been the cause of a serious injury or if it was only a contributing factor.
However, in the case of death, specialists will determine if a contributing injury caused it. If this is so, then it can be said that, by definition, the death of a person or worker has not been natural.

Contributing Workplace Injuries
According to the laws of the state of Texas, when a worker suffers an injury on the job, he is a contributor to something more serious, he is entitled to compensation. Therefore, if you have suffered a setback in your workplace or an activity has made a condition worse, you can request compensation for it.
When you suffer an injury, it requires a medical examination that certifies that, in fact, said mishap has contributed to the damage you have experienced. Similarly, there are various types of injuries that, in turn, have different criteria for demonstrating that the workplace or a work activity contributed to the injury or that it is a contributing injury.
Now, once the specialists have established the type of injury, the terms of compensation are determined if said injury has occurred in the course of work or as a result of doing some work during working hours.
