Immediate Action May Be Required
It is important to report an on-the-job injury to your employer immediately. In some cases, Tennessee law only allows you 30 days to file notice of a workers’ comp claim. How you report your injury and how you go about getting medical treatment can make a big difference in the outcome of your case. An experienced Tennessee workers’ compensation lawyer at Wood & Carlton, P.C., can guide you and help you avoid making common mistakes.
Under Tennessee workers’ compensation law, your employer’s insurance company will provide you with a panel of physicians that you can choose from to provide your medical treatment. It is extremely important to choose your doctor wisely. While you can always seek a second opinion at your own expense, the only opinion that will be considered in determining whether you qualify for workers’ compensation will be that of the first doctor you select from the panel the insurance company provided. Our firm will help you choose a doctor that will be focused on your health and your interests, not just those of your employer and the insurance company.
