Have You Been Hurt on The Job? Here's How We Can Help

If you or a close friend incurred severe injuries at work and are looking to file a workers' compensation claim, we can help.

October 31, 2022

There are thousands of accidents reported in workplaces every day. Data from the National Safety Council (NSC) reveals that an American worker is injured on the job every seven minutes. Accidents occur in every profession and can happen to anyone – even the most prepared individuals.

If you suffer a work-related injury, you may be entitled to compensation. A Franklin workers' comp lawyer can help you file a workers' compensation claim or appeal a denied claim. Get in touch with our Law Office of James F. White, P.C. if you need help navigating your workers' compensation claim.

What Does a Workers' Comp Lawyer Do?

A workers' compensation lawyer can help you with every step in your claim, including the following:

  • Prove your workplace injury

A lawyer can work with you to prove that you suffered injuries on the job and that your injuries did not occur due to a pre-existing medical condition. If your employer retaliates against you for launching a compensation claim, your lawyer will help you take appropriate legal action.

  • Develop evidence for your workers' compensation case

While you're entitled to workers' compensation benefits, you must prove to the court that your injuries actually occurred at work. In this case, a workers' compensation lawyer can help you document the evidence needed for your claim. This could include expert witnesses, medical records, photographs and videos, and a valuation of your losses.

  • Negotiate settlement agreements

Dealing with insurance companies can be stressful, especially if you don't have prior experience. A workers' compensation lawyer has the knowledge, advantage, and experience to estimate how much your compensation claim is worth.

This means a lawyer is able to determine the benefits you should get based on various factors, including your medical expenses, the extent of your injuries, and previous wages.

  • Represent you in court

A lawyer can help you take your workers' compensation case to trial if you're unable to reach an agreement. Your lawyer will prepare the necessary evidence and represent you in court to ensure you get the best possible outcome.
