Please remember that with any claim, there is a time limit which to file formal action to preserve your rights under the law. Therefore, that is why I encourage you to contact my office for a free and confidential consultation regarding your rights and how my office can effectively represent you in preserving those rights and securing you the compensation that you deserve.
In addition to personal injury claims, my office also handles injuries such as work-related accidents, on-the-job injuries, and/or claims for worker compensation benefits according to the Tennessee Worker Compensation Act. In recent years, Tennessee law has changed and evolved in regards to the rights of workers under the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Act. Currently, Tennessee law requires that administrative claims and requests for assistance be filed before instituting a court action.
Furthermore, an administrative claim must be filed with the Tennessee Department of Labor within a certain time period or the claim could be forever barred. Many of the new laws were enacted to protect insurance companies, large corporations, and manufacturing interests within the State of Tennessee all at the peril of the injured worker. Due to the complexity of the Workers’ Compensation Laws that require the filing of an administrative claim with the Tennessee Department of Labor for either a benefit review conference or a request for assistance under the facts of each case is why you should contact an attorney who routinely handles Tennessee Workers’ Compensation claims. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact my office if you require assistance with your work-related injuries.

If you reside in Grundy County, Tennessee your hearing will most likely take place before an administrative law judge at the Office of Disability Adjudication Review located at 6840 Carothers Parkway, Suite 350, Franklin, Tennessee. If necessary, I also handle Social Security disability claims beyond the hearing level and against the Social Security Administration at the Federal District Court level in the Eastern District of Tennessee. As with most claims for benefits, there is a time limit from which you must file an appeal or lose certain rights and remedies under the law.
