  1. What should I do if I’m injured at work?
    After a work place injury, you should first report your injury to your employer and request medical treatment. Your employer should provide you with a list of approved medical providers from whom you can seek treatment without delay. Once your condition is stable, you should follow up with your employer to confirm your claim has been filed properly, all benefits are being paid, and light duty accommodations can be made for any medical restrictions you may have.
  2. Why do I need a workers’ compensation attorney?
    Employers may try to deny injured workers like you the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve after on-the-job injuries. The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Ponce Law can investigate your accident and stand up for your rights. Call us at 615-244-4325 or fill out a free initial consultation form today.
  3. Can I get fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim?
    It’s against the law for employers to terminate employees for reporting workplace injuries or filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. If your employer retaliates against you for reporting your injury, you may be eligible to file a claim for wrongful termination.
  4. What’s the difference between workers’ compensation and personal injury claims?
    Personal injury claims may be filed by anyone who suffered an injury that was caused by the negligence of another person, company, or government agency. Workers’ compensation benefits are provided to employees who are injured on the job and are covered by employers’ state-regulated insurance. Almost all employers in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to compensate their employees if they get hurt on the job.
  5. What types of benefits am I eligible for?
    If you are injured on the job, you may be eligible to receive a variety of benefits, such as:

The families of workers who are killed in workplace accidents also may be eligible to receive a portion of their loved one’s income as workers’ compensation benefits.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
