My best friend was working two jobs but he got injured on another. He has just got out of surgery and is in rehab. Right now he is recieving his workmencomp check for the job that he got injured at but it is not enough to cover his basic living expenses. Its time for him to pay rent and he doesn't have enough money to pay it because he is not able to work his other job due to his injury. What we was wondering is does he have any legal rights to be able to collect for lost wages of his other job. If not does Tennesse have any type of program for this type of problem dealing with workmancomp. We are new to Tennesse and therefore we do not know of any good workmancomp attorneys. We have talked to a few but it seems that most are just interested in you signing with them before giving out any useable information. The fact is He is going to get an attorney but he wants to make sure that he gets one that is truely going to have his intrest at heart. As I stated early does workmancomp factor in the lost of wages for both of his jobs and if not what does he need to do.
P.s Do anyone know of a good workmancomp lawyer in the Collierville, Memphis Tennesse area?
