Chattanooga Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
When it comes to handling workers’ compensation claims, experience matters
At Stulce & Yantis, our Tennessee and Georgia workers’ compensation attorneys have the skill, experience and compassion to help injured workers move forward with their lives. Workers’ compensation is designed to provide compensation to people who are hurt on the job. Our attorneys fight to assure injured workers receive the worker’s compensation benefits to which they are entitled.
Experienced Tennessee and Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Our worker’s compensation attorneys represent people who have been injured in a wide variety of industries, from construction workers hurt in falls to office workers suffering from repetitive stress injuries. However, we pay particular attention to workers’ compensation claims involving truck drivers, occupational diseases, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer, and welders-disease or manganese poisoning related to industrial and toxic exposure, and construction worker and subcontractor claims.
We have successfully handled numerous claims for lost wages and medical treatment expenses against private industry as well as federal, state, and local government employers and their workers’ compensation insurers. We handle issues dealing with defenses, fraud, subrogation, and appeals. Complex legal issues involved in workers’ compensation claims often include proximate causation, statutes of limitation, requirements for receiving different types of disability compensation, and intervening injuries.
Truck Driver Workers’ Compensation Claims
Long-haul truckers can suffer significant injuries that prevent them from returning to the driver’s seat, including shoulder injuries, back injuries, and herniated discs. Our ability to provide exceptional workers’ compensation representation to truckers comes from our attorneys’ experience handling Tennessee trucking accidents. When a truck driver’s claim is filed with the trucking company’s insurance company, the driver may need a workers’ compensation attorney familiar with trucking accidents.
Truck drivers often work for out of state companies. For example, US Express, Covenant Transport, and Southwest Motor Freight are trucking companies that employ drivers from across the country. A driver injured on the job must file a workers’ compensation claim against these companies in Chattanooga. Our firm has handled numerous workers’ compensation claims for clients who live outside of Tennessee.
Hiring Our Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Our workers’ compensation attorneys work on a contingency basis; we earn a fee only if you get paid. The contingency fee system enables injured workers who cannot afford to pay an hourly rate basis to have an attorney. The fee agreement will be carefully explained to you before you retain us. Our attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants treat you with the courtesy and respect you need and deserve. We understand that a workers’ compensation claim can add an incredible amount of stress to any person’s life. Our goal is to put you at ease and ensure that your claim will be handled in the most expeditious and hassle-free way possible.
