Chattanooga Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Workplace accidents can lead to injuries that require you to miss days of work in order to properly recover. Workers’ compensation was created precisely to remedy this type of situation. At the law office of Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers, our attorneys and staff are dedicated to ensuring that all aspects of the Workers’ Compensation Act are followed in order to help you gain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
What Benefits Are You Eligible For?
Our firm confidently handles all aspects of the compensation process for job-related injuries. These aspects include:
- Initial application for benefits — The application process can be complicated, but we can guide you through it.
- Denied claims — We can help you appeal if your workers’ comp claim is initially denied.
- Reinstatement if benefits — If your benefits were suspended at any point for any reason, we can help you push back.
- FELA — If you are a railroad worker, we will explain your rights under a law called the FELA.
We also handle the investigation in instances where employers may not be correctly reporting workers’ comp claims or not reporting the workplace injuries at all. Our office can also defend you if there have been allegations that you have falsely filed for workers’ comp.
If you have been injured in a construction accident or other on-the-job incident, you should immediately report your injury to your supervisor or employer. After seeking treatment of your injury, it can be determined if you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. We can help you understand your rights and exercise them whenever necessary.
