Workplace Injury Attorney in Knoxville
Quality representation from a skilled workers comp lawyer
An injury that prevents you from working can deliver a devastating blow to you and your family. Though the State of Tennessee requires employers to carry insurance, insurers often deny legitimate claims, forcing claimants to undergo a lengthy and complicated appeals process. The Law Offices of James R. LaFevor manages workers compensation appeals and personal injury lawsuits resulting from on-the-job accidents. We have more than 38 years of experience on a variety of related issues, including:
Deep knowledge of the TN workers compensation appeals system
The biggest obstacle an injured worker faces is unfamiliarity with the filing and appeals procedures. If your workers compensation claim was denied, you should seek the advice of a qualified attorney who has experience with workers compensation appeals. You have a limited opportunity to reverse that initial decision, so don't go it alone. The Law Offices of James R. LaFevor has fought for workers' rights for decades. We speak the language of the administrative process. We know the points an appeal must make in order to be persuasive. Put our experience to work for you.
Personal injury actions in lieu of workers compensation claims
When you accept workers compensation benefits, you waive any right to recover for your pain and suffering. In cases of serious injury, those damages could be significant. But to recover damages for pain and suffering, you must be able to prove your employer was negligent. An experienced personal injury lawyer can advise you as to whether you are better off accepting workers comp or filing a civil suit for personal injury. Personal injury lawyer Jim LaFevor has more than 38 years of experience managing personal injury cases. The firm can assess the strength of your case and give you sound advice on how to proceed. If we accept your case, you can rest assured you'll receive the highest quality representation, on a contingency fee basis, so there will be no upfront cost to you.
