Standing up on behalf of injured construction workers in Tennessee

As the son of a laborer permanently disabled by an on-the-job accident, Nashville Construction Lawyer Rocky McElhaney takes the injuries of injured workers very personally.  He brings all his years of experience fighting for victims of construction site and other workplace accidents to bear on behalf of clients whose lives have been forever changed through no fault of their own.  If you or someone you love was hurt in a Nashville construction accident and now need legal advice on how to recover compensation to keep their family going, the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm can help.

Construction work is by its very nature dangerous.  Heavy equipment, hazardous materials, and a hectic environment usually surround workers.  Even the most careful employee is at risk of serious injury or death due to errors or outright negligence at the construction site.  And while insurance should compensate victims of construction accidents in their time of need, most insurers do everything possible to delay or outright deny these perfectly-legitimate claims.

Rocky McElhaney knows this is wrong.  He is not afraid to confront insurance companies and their attorneys to fight for the benefits you deserve.  If needed, he will file a lawsuit on your behalf against the parties responsible for the accident that seriously injured or disabled you.

Sometimes insurance is not enough – you need a construction attorney

If you have been injured on the job in Tennessee, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits.  Workers compensation usually covers medical expenses, temporary total disability, and provides other vital benefits.

However, some employers choose not to carry this insurance in spite of the law, which exposes them to a potential lawsuit.  Even if your employer is properly covered, a lawsuit may be an option if a third party other than your employer was responsible for the construction accident.  For example, if you were injured because a forklift malfunctioned, the company that manufactured the faulty forklift could potentially be held liable for your injuries.  A key to recovery is a good investigation into the facts and circumstances.  Rocky has the tools and resources to perform such investigations.

Whether you need help securing workers compensation benefits, your employer failed to carry workers compensation, or you are not sure whether you have a valid claim against a third party, contact Rocky McElhaney.  Our attorneys can evaluate your case and determine who is at fault for your accident, and what legal actions should be taken next.
