Workers Compensation Law

Tennessee workers compensation lawyers can help you secure deserved benefits

Workers compensation is insurance required by law. Your employer pays for it, and it pays for medical care and cash benefits to employees who get hurt on the job or become ill from doing the work. The Jackson workers compensation lawyers at Hardee, Martin & Donahoe represent clients with serious illnesses and injuries who are unable to get paid proper workers compensation.

Common workplace injuries and illnesses that workers compensation lawyers handle include:

  • Asthma
  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Eye injuries
  • Heart and circulatory problems
  • Hearing loss
 
  • Loss of limbs/fingers
  • Occupational disease
  • Joint injuries
    • Spinal
    • Neck
    • Knee

Why ask Hardee, Martin & Donahoe to get involved with your workers comp claim?

Think about the difficult experience you may have had the last time you filed a claim with a car insurance company, a medical insurance company, or even the company that insures your cell phone against theft or damage. Workers compensation insurance companies serve the interests of large corporations and state government agencies. They are no more willing to pay claims than car insurers or medical insurers. And you get paid nothing if they disagree about whether your injury is work-related.

Our Jackson workers compensation attorneys can help identify the obstacles in your case from the outset, and develop a case that addresses those obstacles.

Social Security disability benefits

Social Security disability benefits are available to you, whether or not you are a salaried employee. In most cases, you pay into the Social Security system even before you cash your paychecks.

The most important thing you can do is to bring your Social Security disability (SSD) claim to the attention of your workers compensation lawyers as soon as you know you will be unable to perform your job for at least one year. SSD is strictly for those with long-term injuries. It is generally five to seven months before payments begin. Since more than half of all original claims are denied, the services of an SSD lawyer can make a big difference. We welcome you to take full advantage of our years of experience with every facet of workers compensation and disability benefits.

Discouraged?

Let us encourage you to claim the benefits you deserve. Many insurers deny initial claims. It is their game of percentages. A certain percentage of workers compensation claimants simply give up after their initial claims are denied. This formula saves insurers lots of money. Let them play. Our Jackson workers compensation attorneys appeal such decisions and make a certainty of your right to collect the compensation you have worked hard to earn.
