Spinal Cord Injuries Caused by On-The-Job Accidents

on the job accidents

Spinal cord injuries can happen in any job. For instance, the banker who is driving to a meeting and is injured in a wreck with a tractor-trailer. Or, the nurse who slips and falls while rushing to a patient’s room. Spinal cord injuries often occur on construction sites when a construction worker falls off a ladder or scaffolding or is injured by a piece of heavy equipment.

Regardless of how your on-the-job spinal cord injury occurred, we can help. Tennessee’s workers’ compensation laws have changed dramatically in recent years but our award-winning trial lawyers can help you successfully navigate the complexities of the system.

In addition, our attorneys are experienced in carefully investigating your accident to determine whether other parties may also be at fault. For instance, was the scaffolding defective and the defect actually caused the fall? If so, the company that erected the scaffolding or the company that manufactured the scaffolding may be liable for your compensatory damages and perhaps even punitive damages.

Special rules and time limits apply to workers’ compensation claims so do not delay. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury while on the job, contact us online or call us at 615-742-4880 or toll-free at 866-812-8787 for a free, no-obligation appointment to discuss your case.
