Workers compensation

Workers compensation insurance allows companies to pay a standard amount of money to employees injured while on the clock. While this is a relatively fast solution to this issue, disputes occur. Walker & Garner is equipped to represent injured workers as well as businesses in these cases in the event of a dispute.

Plaintiffs: Workers injured on the job are entitled to compensation. If your employer withholds compensation from you, Walker & Garner can represent you in obtaining your compensation.

Some injuries, particularly those sustained on a construction site or work site, are the result of a third party's actions. In these cases you may be entitled to more compensation than you receive from a workers comp payout. 

Defendants: Unfortunately, some injured employees seek to obtain compensation for injuries incurred outside of their work day or occupational responsibilities. If your business faces injury claims from employees, Walker & Garner reviews your policies to determine the best strategy to resolve these claims.

Probate and estate planning

Preparing for the future is vital in protecting your loved ones, your business and your assets. Walker & Garner attorneys talk to you about your estate and your wishes to create a legally sound will and comprehensive estate plan to make sure your wishes are communicated when you are no longer available to articulate them. Estate planning involves:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Advance health care directives
  • Powers of attorney

For those who have lost a loved one and have been appointed as personal representatives — or executors — of his or her estate, Walker & Garner can walk you through the probate process. The firm's experienced probate lawyers help executors through the processes of submitting the will for court approval, gathering estate assets, paying debts and estate taxes, distributing the remaining assets among beneficiaries and closing the estate.

The firm also handles estate plan modifications and will contests for those who feel their deceased family member had expressed wishes not expressed in the will in probate. Contact Walker & Garner online or call 615.384.8463 to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your estate planning needs.
