Services You’ll Receive from Our Smyrna Amputation Attorney
Our full-service law firm leads every step in Smyrna workers’ compensation claims. Our team will:
Document Your Amputation Injury and Resulting Losses
The National Safety Council (NSC) explains that amputation injuries are the most expensive type of workers’ compensation claim. Our team will document your injuries and resulting damages with:
- Images of the injury
- Medical records
- Proof of your time away from work (and the income you lose as a consequence)
- Expert testimony about any psychological and emotional injuries or symptoms
- Any other documentation that proves the cost of your amputation injury
Our team will also calculate the cost of your medical care and lost income. Amputation injuries may require physical rehabilitation and vocational rehabilitation, which workers’ compensation benefits may cover. We will project the cost of both current and future losses.
Document How Your Amputation Injury Happened
Workers’ compensation benefits should cover a work-related injury regardless of the details of how the amputation occurred. There are a few exceptions, though, which may include accidents resulting from intoxication or horseplay.
We want to ensure that insurers cannot claim you were engaged in horseplay or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Therefore, we will document exactly how and why your amputation injury happened.
Complete the Day-to-Day Responsibilities of Your Case
Our team will work on your claim daily, handling duties like:
- Monitoring and updating you on the claims process
Workers’ compensation claims require sustained effort and attention. Our attorneys and paralegals will remain on top of your claim, working diligently until we’ve resolved the insurance process.
Represent You in Settlement Negotiations
Your attorney will negotiate relentlessly for the money you deserve. Having lost a limb, we will not stand for insurance companies trying to underpay you. Getting fair benefits is how we get justice, so we will work hard to negotiate the insurance settlement you deserve.
If you pursue a lawsuit and your case requires a trial, we’ll take your case to court.
