Opinion

PER CURIAM.

We deny the motion for rehearing. We withdraw our opinion of February 6, 2003, and substitute the following in its place.

We deny the petition for review. The court of appeals concluded that Timothy Austin’s claim for workers’ compensation benefits is not barred by the election-of-remedies doctrine. section 409.009 abrogates the election-of-remedies doctrine.

Petition denied.

Justice WAINWRIGHT did not participate in the decision.
