Every day, hard-working people just like you are injured on the job through no fault of their own. And after you’ve been hurt in a workplace accident, you may be unable to earn a paycheck, leaving you unable to provide for your family and pay your medical bills. In some cases, the pain and psychological impact from workplace injuries can take years to heal and thousands of dollars to treat.
Unfortunately, many employers don’t want to shoulder the responsibility and expenses after an employee has been hurt on the job. As a result, your employer may offer you an unfair settlement or even threaten to fire you. Your employer’s insurance provider may give you a one-time offer that most likely won’t begin to cover all the costs associated with your injury. And once you accept the offer, you forfeit your rights to further legal action and compensation.
If you’ve found yourself in this position, it’s time to call the Nashville workers’ comp attorneys at Griffith & Roberts.
