Know Your Rights Following A Workplace Accident

You May Be Able To Collect Workers' Comp Benefits And File A Personal Injury Lawsuit

Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others when it comes to risk of injury. Industrial and construction work in Tennessee and Virginia is rugged and dangerous. The heavy machinery and frantic pace set in factories and construction sites can result in serious injuries.

If a machine malfunction or an error on the part of a third-party contractor at a work site results in a serious injury, the injured party may be able to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit in addition to recovering workers' compensation benefits. The experienced legal team at Todd & Dossett, P.C., helps workers in eastern Tennessee and Southwestern Virginia protect their rights and maximize the amount they recover when a workplace injury occurs.

Of course, injuries in the workplace can occur in any setting. For example, a delivery person who is injured in a car accident may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in addition to receiving workers' compensation benefits. We can review the facts of your case
