One of the first things you should consider after an on-the-job injury is how you’re going to survive financially. Many injured workers make the assumption that their employer will take care of them in the event of an accident, and most of the time they’re right…to an extent. The reality is most Tennessee employers carry workers’ compensation insurance. That’s not the problem. The problem is many workers’ compensation claims fail to fully compensate the injured worker, leaving them holding some of the bills.
If you’ve been injured on the job, you should consult with an attorney whether or not your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. At Ponce Law, we’ve helped a number of Nashville workers get more compensation for their claims than the insurance company was originally willing to pay. That extra compensation paid medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that the injured worker never even considered. Without an attorney, they and their families could have ended up in a financial nightmare.
