You may have seen signs around town that boast how long a company has gone without an on-the-job injury. At Ponce Law, we wish instead of a number of days, these signs simply read, “Never.” Our Nashville workers’ compensation lawyers know better than most the devastating impact a workplace injury can have on a family. Even if your employer has workers’ comp insurance, it doesn’t mean that you’ll automatically get all the compensation you need to fully recover. And there may not be much your employer can do to help.
You might think it’s your employer who pays workers’ compensation benefits, but that’s probably not the case. Most small businesses can’t afford to pay out the amount of money necessary for an injured worker to get back on his or her feet. That’s why they pay for workers’ compensation insurance. In the event of an on-the-job injury, your employer’s insurance company will handle and pay out the claim. But getting what is fair can be difficult on your own. The insurance company’s best interests lie in paying you as little as possible for your claim. That’s just business. But business can become personal real quick when you’re wondering how you’re going to make rent.
That’s why it’s important that you call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney before settling with the insurance company. At Ponce Law, our attorneys have the experience and expertise to help you go after fair compensation for your injuries, so you and your family can move on. You only get one chance to get your Nashville worker’s compensation claim right. Contact us today.
