Why Act Now?
Often employees are reluctant to file a worker's compensation claim or contact an attorney because they are afraid their employer will fire them or they just are not "the type to sue". Remember that employers are required to carry workers compensation coverage to help an injured employee obtain needed medical care and to survive financially while they are unable to work. The employer has paid insurance premiums to protect the injured employee and an injured employee should not be reluctant to benefit from the coverage. Further, there are strict deadlines in workers compensation cases. If the employee fails to meet certain notice deadlines, they can lose their right to benefits. The employee should not hesitate to file a claim so they can get the medical care and financial assistance they need. Additionally, Tennessee law protects employees from employer retaliation. The Higgins Firm offers a free initial consultation to explain the workers' compensation process and the benefits you are entitled to. It is difficult to know if you are being treated "fairly" unless you know your rights under the Tennessee Workers Compensation law.
