J Davis Miller

Workers Compensation Lawyer

Our Tennessee workers' compensation lawyers are dedicated to guiding you through the process of obtaining medical payments and/or disability benefits as outlined by Tennessee's workers' compensation statutes. These benefits are designed to provide financial aid to employees who suffer injuries or illnesses directly related to their job. Tennessee law mandates that employers with five or more employees, whether full-time or part-time, must have workers' compensation insurance in place. Our skilled personal injury attorneys are experts in navigating workers' compensation claims and offer a free, no-obligation consultation to go over the specifics of your workplace incident or any denial of benefits by your insurance company.

In the event of a work-related injury, such as those occurring from ladder accidents, roofing mishaps, or on construction sites, it's critical to report the incident to your employer promptly. In Tennessee, you must notify the correct parties within 15 days of the accident to preserve your right to file a workers' compensation claim. Your employer is required to inform their insurance carrier of your work-related injury within one working day of learning about it. If your employer does not report your injury, you have the option to contact the state's workers' compensation division for assistance, and this would also be an opportune moment to consult with a seasoned workers' compensation lawyer to evaluate your legal options.

Under Tennessee's workers' compensation laws, there are generally two types of benefits available to an injured worker. The first involves covering expenses for necessary medical treatments, care, and any associated medications or medical equipment prescribed by the authorized treating physician. The second type includes monetary and indemnity benefits to compensate for disabilities related to the workplace injury.
