Why Do You Need an Attorney for Your Workers’ Comp Case?

by Staff Blogger | July 31st, 2017

To protect themselves, workplaces have strict regulations, rules, and procedures for when employees get hurt on the job. If you were injured at work, you probably saw how much red tape is involved when workers report accidents—including requirements such as paperwork, specific doctors you’re allowed to see, and even threats of retaliation for filing a claim.

Although almost all employers and businesses in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, they and their insurance providers are hesitant to pay out claims to injured workers like you. But as an employee who got hurt on the job, you’re rightfully entitled to compensation.

Ponce Law’s team of Nashville workers’ compensation attorneys knows the tricks that business owners and their insurance providers use to reduce or deny claims, and we’ll stay one step ahead by:

  • Collecting evidence to prove the accident wasn’t your fault – Testimony from co-workers, security camera footage, and accident report discrepancies can validate your case.
  • Obtaining medical evidence to prove the severity of your injuries – Proving that you were hurt at work often isn’t enough. But we’ll obtain your medical report and even call experts who can verify to the insurance company that your injuries are work-related.

Workplace injuries are often painful and debilitating, but because they can cost employers money, workers like you may feel intimidated and reluctant to file claims. Don’t shoulder the burden of an accident that wasn’t your fault. Set up a free consultation with our legal team today, and let us help.
