The workers’ compensation law in Tennessee governs employee claims against employers for injuries which occurred while working. Claims of those whose loved ones died while on the job also may qualify.
You have a right, if you are injured at work, to seek certain benefits from your employer to compensate for those injuries.
There is no legal requirement for you to hire an attorney, but obviously an attorney with experience in workers’ comp matters can assist you in taking the proper steps to protect your rights and assure that you are compensated fairly for your injuries.
Only an attorney who has the knowledge and experience in the law can determine whether an offer to settle from an employer is reasonable and fair.
