Helping Workers Obtain Recoveries and Move Through Troubled Waters
No worker’s compensation recovery will replace a good job. If you were to ask most people who are receiving worker’s compensation benefits and cannot return to their jobs, they would prefer to be active in the workplace. Yet, when you have suffered a workplace accident and need to replace the income you earned at your job, whether it is quadriplegia due to a catastrophic construction work site injury, a permanently ruptured disk due to repetitive work strain or any other kind of work-related injury, the Law Offices of Gary Dawson will be there to help you.
If you are uncertain how to get your medical bills paid or are worried that your employer may hold it against you for seeking compensation for your injuries, lawyer Gary Dawson can help you understand your rights under workers comp law. We offer free initial consultations at no obligation to people involved in worker’s compensation matters and can help you monitor your case.
Workers’ compensation law in Tennessee essentially puts a numerical value on a physical injury. If you have an injured elbow, it may be worth X amount of dollars. If you need to have surgery, you have an injury that may be worth Y amount of dollars. The trouble is that people do not fit neatly into little boxes like this. Before you make decisions about workers’ compensation, it is wise to consult an attorney who understands workers’ compensation law and is on your side.
For over 30 years we have helped clients throughout the Greater Area of East Tennessee adjust to the challenges of an injury suffered on the job. Our goal is to see that you obtain the full and complete compensation you need, as well as your pay, medical expenses and any long-term care costs that may be associated with your injury. At the same time, we know that most people would prefer to be able to be productive in the workplace and we will also work with your employer to advocate for a job for you, even if you cannot perform the functions of your old job.
Third Party On-The-Job Injury Claims
We also represent injured workers in what is referred to as a third party claim. You may have a third party claim if you suffer an injury on the job that was caused by someone’s negligence who was not employed with your company. For instance, if you are a driver and you were injured on the job in a car accident or a truck accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to additional compensation through a personal injury claim against the negligent driver.
