All employers in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance as long as they employ more than five people. If you have been injured on the job, it is important that you seek independent legal counsel from a Tennessee workers’ compensation lawyer even if you have been offered an enticing benefit package by an insurance adjuster already.
Workers’ compensation representatives are not on your side. They protect the best interests of the insurance provider, not you.
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey Jones in Bartlett, we advocate for workers throughout western Tennessee. Work injuries can be devastating even if they seem minor at first. Something as simple as a broken bone or soft tissue injury can be career-ending, requiring you to either retire or retrain for a new career — both very expensive options.
Committed to Recovering Full Compensation on Your Behalf
Speak with an experienced attorney before committing to anything with an insurance representative or your employer. Do not sign anything until you have spoken with independent legal counsel.
Workers’ compensation insurance companies restrict people to the company doctors, meaning they might try to prevent you from seeing the doctor of your choosing. What those doctors say goes, even if they tell you to go back to work and you still can’t do your duties.
Our law firm is on your side from the beginning, and we can help you fight against the system, advocating for your rights. We can arrange an independent medical exam (IME) for you from an impartial doctor. We can help you get a second opinion that enhances your injury claim for the full benefits you deserve. You should not be forced to go back to work before you are ready.
