At-Work Injuries? You Have Rights.
Were you injured at work? Are you suffering from an illness caused by conditions at your job? Did a loved one sustain a fatal injury while performing his or her work duties?
Workers’ compensation laws in Tennessee provide workplace injury victims — or the survivors of those killed on the job — with money and medical benefits to those who were harmed as a result of an accident or occupational disease while working. Unfortunately, the work comp system is not perfect and does not supply injured workers or their families with all that they deserve without a fight.
It does not cost you anything to find out if you have a claim for benefits.
If you are suffering because of an accident or injury that occurred at your job or while you were performing work-related duties in Tennessee, seek the help of an attorney at the Knoxville law firm of Pryor Priest & Harber.
Helping Victims Of Workplace Accidents
Our lawyers have focused on helping people who have been injured at work and in other places since 1981. Through years of hard work and dedication, we have honed our skills, and we know how to help you obtain the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled, including:
- Payments based on a percentage of your weekly wages
- Medical treatment
- Rehabilitative services
- Permanent scars, disfigurement or loss of function
Additionally, you may receive compensation from a third party if your illness or injury was caused by negligence — such as a defective piece of machinery or a mistake that could have been avoided. This is called a “third-party claim” and is like a personal injury lawsuit.
