Not All Employers Carry Workers’ Comp Insurance in TN

by Staff Blogger | August 15th, 2016

There’s no excuse for not taking care of your own. In the South, we understand that. It’s part of our culture and the bedrock of our families, our communities, and our way of life. At Ponce Law, we uphold that tradition by giving back to our communities as often as we are able, just as you do for your community. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always do the same for injured workers on the job, leaving victims and their families in a tough financial situation.

Workers’ compensation claims can be tricky in Tennessee. This might surprise you, but not every business in Tennessee is required to have workers’ compensation insurance, which means their employees aren’t automatically covered in the event of an on-the-job injury. And even if the employer does have workers’ comp insurance, it doesn’t necessarily mean the victim will get all the compensation they deserve in the settlement. In fact, your workplace injury could end up costing you and your family thousands if not handled properly.

That’s why it’s so important to call an experienced Nashville workers’ compensation attorney to help with your claim. We know the law, we know what you deserve, and we’ll do everything within our power to get it for you. If you’ve been injured on the job, give us a call today for a free consultation.
