If you have been injured on the job, you’ll need legal representation from an aggressive worker’s compensation lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are fully compensated for your injuries and economic damages.
Tennessee’s laws provide worker’s compensation benefits to employees who have suffered an on-the-job injury. The laws and regulations that govern worker’s compensation can be difficult and often complex to navigate for an injured worker, who may be unfamiliar with the benefits for which he or she may be entitled.
If you have suffered a work-related injury, the most important step to take at this point is to immediately consult with the experienced worker’s compensation attorneys at The McKellar Law Firm, PLLC. From the onset of your injury, there is a time limitation that governs when our attorneys may file a claim and failure to file within this time period could permanently bar you from any recovery. Our initial consultation is free and provides you the opportunity to know your rights and discuss the available options.
At The McKellar Law Firm PLLC, we will meet with you to discuss your worker’s compensation rights free of charge. After our free initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to decide if we are the right law firm to handle your case, and we will have the opportunity to decide if we will represent you. You pay no fee unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for your injury. We handle worker’s compensation claims on a contingency fee basis. This means that the legal fee is a percentage of the amount recovered, and there is no attorney’s fee due unless and until money is actually collected for you.
