More than 55% of American workers are paid hourly. Of that number, many don’t have any paid leave, such as sick or vacation days, so if they don’t work, they don’t get paid. Getting injured on the job can cripple their financial situation, leaving them wondering how they’re going to make ends meet. In Tennessee, employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance. That insurance is intended to protect workers injured on the job. Unfortunately, securing the benefits you deserve after an on-the-job accident can be harder than you might think.

Along with securing compensation for your current medical expenses, a Ponce Law workers’ comp attorney can fight to secure money for future medical expenses, lost wages, and additional compensation if your injuries turn out to be permanent. In addition, we’ll fight to protect your job while you recover so it will be waiting for you should you chose to stay with your employer.
