Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Claims

Representing Injured Workers Throughout Eastern Tennessee

Tennessee workers’ compensation laws and procedures are complex. The process can be intimidating for someone who has never faced an on-the-job injury before. Many people with legitimate claims are denied worker’s compensation benefits simply because they didn’t understand the law.

Piper Jr. has represented injured workers in the Knoxville metropolitan area and all of eastern Tennessee.

Do I Need an Attorney?

Many people put off hiring an attorney for a workers’ compensation claim until they have a dispute either with their employer or with the insurance company. However, if you wait until your claim is denied or payments have been stopped, you may have already jeopardized your case.

Some of the ways injured workers can damage their claims is by not properly documenting their injury or by not following through on medical treatment. If you have been injured on the job, it costs nothing to discuss your case with an attorney.

Even if your claim has been turned down or your payments stopped, there are always things a lawyer can do to help you obtain the benefits you deserve. We can also determine if your injury was caused by a third party (someone other than you or your employer). If so, we can file a personal injury lawsuit against the person or entity who injured you. Filing a personal injury lawsuit allows you to recover additional compensations for the losses you have suffered.
