Workers’ Compensation: Get The Compensation And Benefits You Need To Recover And Get Back On The Job
It’s bad enough getting hurt while on the job, with the lost wages and medical bills, but for many of our clients in Memphis and throughout Tennessee, the aftermath of the injury and the ensuing workers’ compensation process are even more stressful.
We know the difficulties of workers’ compensation law. Our AV-rated* attorneys at the Godwin, Morris, Laurenzi & Bloomfield, P.C., law firm have more than 100 combined years of experience in workers’ compensation and numerous other injury claims and personal injury matters. In the vast majority of cases, your employer or their insurance company will do everything possible to deny or at least minimize your claim. That’s why it’s so important to protect yourself with the help of an experienced legal team.
Injured On The Job? What Happened To You?
Workers’ compensation claims involve many of the same injuries as any other personal injury claim, including:
- Back injuries
- Slipped disks
- Herniated disks
- Blown disks
- Neck injuries
- Lost limbs
- Broken bones
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Lifting injuries
- Falling injuries
The company, the company’s representatives, the doctors, the insurance companies: These people are not your friends. They are trying to do everything possible to deny your workers’ compensation claims. Don’t get hurt twice; talk with our attorneys to get the facts about your options.
Workers’ compensation, unlike many other areas of personal injury, is not based on fault. If you are hurt at work, you are entitled to compensation based on the severity of your injury.
However, the company wants to do everything possible to deny that your injuries are as serious as they really are. There will be claims adjusters and investigators assigned to your case almost immediately after your injury.
