MAKING WORKERS' COMPENSATION WORK FOR YOU

After suffering a serious job injury, workers often wonder how they are going to pay medical bills and take care of their families. The workers' compensation process can be daunting — and often, employers aren't a reliable source of information regarding your rights since their interests often don't align with yours.

A knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney can help! At The Sexton Law Firm, in Knoxville, Tennessee, we know it's hard to admit that you need help, but the workers' compensation system is designed to provide victims of injuries at work with financial assistance, payment of medical expenses and compensation for the serious injury they have suffered. We always offer a free initial consultation so you can talk to our experienced legal team to find out what your rights are.

    The Benefits You're Entitled To

    If you have been injured while on the job and are owed workers' compensation, you may think this entails a monthly check for living expenses. However, you are also qualified to receive payments for medical treatment and prescriptions.

    At The Sexton Law Firm, we will also help establish your maximum medical improvement and impairment rating to help ensure that you receive the best possible settlement. This can make a substantial difference in your compensation. Getting this right is one of our top priorities.

    We perform all of our workers' compensation legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will owe us nothing if we do not successfully process your workers' compensation claim.

    They handled my SSDI case and hearing. They answered my questions and were very professional throughout the entire time leading up to and including the hearing. Research said that 95% of first time filings for disability with the SSA are denied. I would encourage anyone filing for disability to contact The Law offices of David Sexton to get it done right, keep you informed and follow up to make sure everything is going well. As a veteran of 12 years service to our great country I can tell you that they don’t just give lip service to thanking us for Our Service, but you not not receive better and more timely service Anywhere.

    They were quick to return the initial phone call and filed my paperwork for disability, however I had questions and information to give them and despite my phone calls to them every four to five weeks no one ever returned my call the first time. I did all of the leg work for my disability and for that I got to pay them $6,000. That was one expensive first phone call to them.

    I'm sending a big thank you to David Sexton! Navigating my way through the stages of the SS disability process was not a task I was equipped to take on alone. After my initial filing and subsequent denial, I made the wise decision of contacting The Sexton Law Firm to get the necessary legal representation I undoubtedly needed. David Sexton believed in my case, and carried it, as he guided me through almost three years of the SSA's bureaucratic maze. Throughout the process, and three denials, David, as well as Stephanie, Pam, and Tara, displayed a high level of knowledge, professionalism, and patience as they never failed to answer all of my questions, and made sure I was fully prepared way ahead of time. They were always courteous and enthusiastic. David and his team won my case! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Sexton Law Firm to anyone who is considering applying for SSDI.

    David Sexton and his entire staff were fabulous! I was treated with kindness, caring and integrity throughout my case. He got me through my appeal and without his help, I wouldn’t have won my case. Thank God he was there for me all the way! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I highly recommend!
