Workers Comp Attorneys

Serving clients in Tennessee and North Georgia

Every business owner has a responsibility to provide employees with a safe place to work. OSHA and other government regulatory agencies set certain rules to maintain safety. Equipment must meet safety standards, and training programs, regulations, and manuals are required to guide employees in an effort to prevent injuries. Yet, on-the- job accidents occur at alarming rates.

In the course of performing their jobs, employees encounter injury accidents and death in every sort of work environment. Among the many causes of serious occupational injury are repetitive motion, slip and fall, fires, explosions, toxic chemical exposure, carbon monoxide poisoning and electrocution.

Federal and state laws mandate insurance coverage, designed to protect workers injured on the job. Unless covered by Federal programs, Tennessee and Georgia law requires employers either to carry workers’ compensation coverage for employees or be approved for self-insurance.

Types of injuries covered by workers’ comp range from bone fractures, back injury, eye injury, work induced heart attack and repetitive trauma injury to hearing damage, loss of fingers, arms, legs, as well as death.

When you suffer job-related injuries or illnesses, Tennessee and Georgia workers’ compensation provides medical treatment, wage replacement and permanent disability compensation, as well as death benefits for dependents of employees who died as a result of a workplace injury accident.

When You May Need Legal Help

Many injured workers sail through the workers’ comp claim process without difficulty, however, you may need legal help if:

  • Your workers’ compensation claim has been denied
  • Defective equipment causes your injury
  • A party other than your employer is responsible for your injury
  • You are a dependent of someone who has died from a workplace injury
  • Workplace injuries are catastrophic, and workers’ comp benefits do not adequately cover medical costs, rehabilitation or assistive care
