Workers’ Compensation is a major area of the comprehensive legal services offered by Jim Williams & Associates to our clients in Tennessee and Virginia. Workers’ Compensation benefits are provided to injured employees as a means of providing funds for medical bills and lost wages without the inconvenience of filing a claim in court. Before a work related injury occurs, many workers feel secure that Workers’ Compensation benefits will be available immediately following an injury only to learn that benefits may take weeks to begin and then only cover a portion of the worker’s weekly wages. Even worse, the employer and/or insurance company representing the employer may choose to deny a Workers’ Compensation claim in order to minimize their own financial exposure.
The prospect of hiring an attorney may seem daunting in the face of an already uncertain financial situation after a work-related injury. At Jim Williams & Associates, our experience has shown us that the assistance of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney during the process of filing a claim will ensure that you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled, including benefits that you might not have been aware of prior to the claim. In some cases, you may be able to collect both Social Security Disability benefits and Workers’ Compensation benefits at the same time depending on your situation.
The Workers’ Compensation attorneys at Jim Williams & Associates have developed a claims practice assisting clients in Tennessee and Virginia with the negotiation of disputes and the collection of full benefits following a work-related injury. In addition, our staff can also advise and represent clients seeking to recover Social Security Disability benefits related, or unrelated to, a workplace injury.
