The Workers’ Compensation System is Difficult to Navigate Without a Lawyer

Almost all employers in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case their employees get hurt on the job, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get benefits.

If you were recently injured at work and are in need of benefits for your medical bills and lost income, you may have two obstacles standing in your way:

  • Your employer—The business that employs you may have coverage for you and its other employees, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get their cooperation when they file a claim for benefits. Many businesses discourage or even attempt to bar employees from filing claims in an effort to reduce their own costs.
  • The Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation—The board that oversees workers’ compensation claims in Tennessee has strict criteria for approving benefits. Even minor mistakes can result in dismissals or denials, leaving workers feeling helpless.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville workers’ compensation lawyers know that the process may feel rigged against you when you pursue benefits for your accident-related expenses. That’s why we’re here to help.
