Work Injury Compensation — Know Your Rights
Immediately after you have been injured on the job, you will probably be approached by insurance adjusters. They might offer you a little of money for medical care, but in return ask you to sign away many of your rights, including your right to sue for additional compensation.
Before you do anything else, you should speak with a lawyer who will work in your interests exclusively.
Insurance adjusters’ job is to keep you just happy enough to minimize the payout the insurance company will be required to compensate you with. Unfortunately, that means keeping you in the dark about the full compensation you actually deserve and can obtain.
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey Jones, we represent injured workers throughout western Tennessee with third-party work injury and workers’ compensation claims. If you were injured at work by someone other than your employer, you may have a third-party injury claim that is more similar to a personal injury claim than a workers’ compensation claim.
Examples of third-party work injury claims include:
- Defective machinery
- Defective scaffolding
- Defective tools
- Other defective products
- On-the-job motor vehicle accidents
- Negligence of a subcontractor
