Fortunately, we can help.
How Workers’ Comp Works in Memphis
Workers’ compensation provides financial support and medical benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses.
If you experience an on-the-job injury, you’ll file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer’s insurance company. (Your employer already pays insurance for exactly this purpose—it’s the law.)
When workers’ compensation works correctly, you receive benefits to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and any other costs of rehabilitation. This includes any work-related injury, even if it was your fault.
However, sometimes the system doesn’t work properly. Sometimes the employer’s insurance company refuses your claim. This puts you, the worker, in a very difficult financial situation right when you should be focused on getting better.
Workers’ comp laws vary by state. As a result, as you consider your options, you’ll want someone who understands the local laws and can give you the best possible chance at success.
So if you’re in the Shelby County area and your employer refuses to pay for your work injury, you need a Memphis workers’ comp lawyer.
What to Look for in a Memphis Workers’ Comp Lawyer
As you consider your options, keep a few specific things in mind:
Specialization and Experience
First, a good workers’ comp lawyer should have significant experience handling workers’ compensation cases. They should understand the local and state laws and use them to your advantage. And they should know the local court procedures.
Someone who knows the system well also knows the people involved in that system, which will help your case.
In addition, choose a lawyer who responds and communicates effectively. A good workers’ comp lawyer should be able to explain the legal process in plain language, answer any questions you may have, and keep you informed about the progress of your case.
Record of Success
Lastly, when choosing a Memphis workers’ comp lawyer, consider who has a proven track record of success in handling workers’ compensation cases.
A good lawyer should be able to provide references or testimonials from satisfied clients. They should have a reputation for getting positive outcomes for their clients. And you should always feel like you’re in good hands.
