In an effort to educate injured employees on the complexities of Texas workers’ compensation, the Division has produced seven brief instructional videos, viewable at The surprisingly not-terrible videos guide potential claimants through the labyrinthine Texas Work Comp system, providing instructions for how to file a claim, explaining differences in types of income benefits, and mapping out the stages of the dispute resolution process. 

In announcing the creation of the videos, then-Commissioner Brannan hoped that the videos would assist injured workers in better understanding the workers’ comp system, acknowledging that, “People are busy these days and are much more likely to watch a video to learn about something new.”  But there is value in the videos for even the most seasoned Texas Work Comp veteran: eagle-eyed system participants may spot San Antonio Benefit Review Officer Samuel Peralez as “Injured Worker at BRC.”  Spoiler alert: he’s only pretending to be injured.
