Understanding Workers’ Compensation Law
Workers’ compensation laws protect employees in case of injuries on the job. Tennessee mandates that all construction businesses, coal mining companies, and employers with five or more employees must provide workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits encompass medical treatment, temporary or permanent disability, vocational rehabilitation, compensation for lost wages, and more. Our team has extensive experience representing clients from West Tennessee in workers’ compensation cases, and we are confident we can assist you.
What to Do Following a Workplace Injury
Early action is critical to optimal results in your workers’ compensation case. Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Law requires you to report all workplace injuries within 30 days. Therefore, it is important to know what you should do following a workplace injury. We suggest you:
- Report the injury to your employer immediately
- Obtain medical treatment
- Seek legal representation from the Law Offices of Edward Martindale Jr., P.C.
