Steps To Take After A Workplace Accident

Do you know what to do after being injured in a work accident? Many workers do not, which is why we have put together a list of steps to take after an accident at work.

Follow these steps if you have been injured on the job:

  1. Inform your employer about your accident and injury. It is best to do this in writing if possible.
  2. Contact an attorney to discuss your rights and options to receive compensation.
  3. Find a doctor to get appropriate medical treatment. We can help you select the best doctor available for your care.
  4. Follow your doctor's orders. This includes not arguing with your doctor and maintaining a good relationship with your physician throughout your care.
  5. Work with your attorney to file a workers' compensation claim.

As your lawyers, we will advocate for you throughout this process. We know life is difficult after an injury. We will fight for you so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

We understand the workers' compensation process and what steps we need to take to protect your rights immediately after your accident. As soon as you hire us, we will help you understand your rights in Tennessee, what to expect during this process and answer your questions.
