Getting hurt at work isn’t just painful—it can also be financially devastating for you and your loved ones. Even if your injury wasn’t your fault, you still may be too hurt or disabled to do your job for weeks or months to come.
Tennessee requires almost all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover workers like you who face these difficult situations, but some employers are reluctant to admit that their employees were injured through no fault of their own. In fact, businesses and business owners may even go out of their way to discourage their workers from filing workers’ compensation claims—even if their own negligence or carelessness caused their employees to get hurt.
Common ways that employers discourage or impede claims include:
Threatening retaliation – Whether directly or indirectly, some employers attempt to silence employees who want to file for workers’ compensation benefits by threatening their titles, their jobs, and even their careers.
Providing false information – Some employers take advantage of their workers’ lack of knowledge concerning workers’ compensation. They may claim that they don’t carry insurance, that they can’t afford the claim, or that the specific injuries workers suffered aren’t covered.
As a Non-Tennessee resident, I selected Ponce Law after reading the reviews. You guys were spot on. This firm has some of the nicest, knowledgeable and easiest lawyers and staff to work with. I was amazed and very pleased with their diligence and work ethic! Even if I was worried about something and called for advice, they were quick to respond and answered my questions. I will highly recommend this firm.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to Ponce Law.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
