Hurt on the Job?

Tennessee Trial Lawyer for Workers' Comp and Third Party Claims

Proverbs tells us to commit our work to the Lord. However, no matter how hard we might work or how many precautions we might take, accidents can still happen. Nashville workers compensation attorney Stanley A. Davis knows this and has seen how it affects workers and their families firsthand. When an accident happens, your employer should offer you workers’ compensation to assist in you recovering from your injuries. This should include any therapy you might need as well as paying for the wages you lost when unable to work.

Stan wants to help ease the burden on victims and their families when they need it most. At the Law Office of Stanley A. Davis, Stan and his staff treat every person with enormous respect for what they are going through and have a passion for ensuring clients receive the compensation and benefits they deserve. Trust an attorney who has years of experience handling personal injury claims in the Tennessee justice system to handle your case for the best result possible.

How to Get Workers' Compensation in Tennessee

Workers who have been injured on the job because their employer exposed them to hazards have rights under Tennessee workers’ compensation laws. You need a qualified lawyer in Nashville with experience getting injured workers the compensation they deserve. After a workplace accident that results in injury, your attorney can help by making sure:

  • You report the injury by filing a workers’ comp accident report or similar form to the employee’s company. You should do so within 30 days of the injury or within 30 days of when a doctor first tells the employee that his or her injury is work-related.
  • The employee successfully completes other required forms.
  • The company provides a panel of at least three nearby doctors willing to provide medical treatment.
  • The employer covers medical costs for as long as required by the authorized treating physician.
  • The worker receives disability benefits by the eighth day of disability. If the disability lasts at least 14 days, then benefits are paid back to the first day of disability.
  • The employee is receiving the proper level of benefits.

Workers’ compensation laws specify what your employer must provide you as well as the kinds of compensation you can receive. Many of these accidents can leave workers with life-altering injuries and permanent disabilities. This may then prevent them from working in the construction industry or ever again. Seeking the advice of a workers’ comp lawyer gives you a better explanation of what your eligibility is for benefits. You can also find out whether you have the ability to file a third party claim or personal injury lawsuit.

Can I Get Workmans Comp If I Fell at Work?

A workers’ compensation claim involves many details before approval. Simply falling on the job may not be enough to qualify you for these benefits. While there are many types of injuries that you can receive on the job, here are a few examples of typical workers’ comp injuries:

The weekly compensation paid to injured employees in Tennessee is generally two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly wage over the 52 weeks prior to the injury. However, in some situations, workers may seek damages from other parties responsible for their injuries. It all depends on who caused the injury (the employer, a coworker, contractor or third party) and how the injury happened. But what is a third party?

What Are Common Third Party Claim Examples?

What injured workers may not realize is that they could have a claim that can pay them more money to cover their expenses and damages than just workers’ compensation. You can pursue a third party liability claim when a defective product, a defective piece of equipment or someone who is not a coworker or employer causes an on-the-job injury or occupational disease.

Common third parties Stan Davis has seen involved in these types of claims include:

  • The owner of an animal that bit a worker on the job
  • A property owner who did not properly maintain a safe work site
  • The driver of a car (not a coworker or employer) who hit the worker while he or she was working
  • A manufacturer of a defective product or piece of equipment that caused a workplace injury
  • An outside contractor who caused an on-the-job accident or failed to provide adequate safety measures
