If you have been injured at work, you have certain rights, benefits and responsibilities to ease the burden of medical bills and loss of income. Your employer also has obligations and responsibilities under Tennessee law.
Workers across many different industries and professions have trusted MLT for more than 40 years to help them overcome a variety of obstacles in workers’ compensation such as denied claims, pre-existing conditions, returning to work and more.
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance paid for by employers that provides compensation for wage loss and medical bills to employees injured on the job or during the course of employment. The workers’ comp claim process is often complicated and there are numerous chances to make a mistake if you handle the process on your own. These mistakes can result in lost medical compensation, lost wages, or even employer retaliation.
From the moment you are injured, you need a game plan. MLT will fight for your interests to make sure you receive the benefits you deserve and the medical care you need. If you have previously filed a claim for workers’ compensation and have been denied, don’t give up on your case. There may still be a chance to get compensation by filing an appeal.
Do not hesitate to seek help. Call MLT today to schedule a consultation with our attorneys to better understand your rights and responsibilities in work related injuries.
