How We Can Help
Filing workers’ compensation claims requires experience and knowledge of state and federal law. When you call Ponce Law, we’ll prepare your case by:
- Proving Your Injury Happened at Work
To avoid filing a workers’ compensation claim with their insurance company, your employer may deny that your accident happened while you were on the job. Our workers’ compensation attorneys can investigate your accident by reviewing the accident report and witness statements to prove your injury occurred at work.
- Proving the Extent of Your Injuries
Even if you can show your injury occurred at work, your employer or their insurance company may deny your benefits application if they believe your injury isn’t serious. We can help prove the extent of your injuries or disability by reviewing your medical report and collecting statements from your doctor.
Almost all businesses in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their injured employees, but many are hesitant to let workers collect these benefits. At Ponce Law, we’ll stand up for your rights.
