Workers Compensation

Under Tennessee workers compensation law, if you have sustained an injury within the course and scope of your employment, generally you are entitled to workers compensation benefits. These benefits include lifetime medical treatment related to your injury, temporary monetary benefits while you are out of work and healing and, if you have sustained a permanent injury, permanent monetary benefits that are meant to compensate you for the loss of your ability to earn money in the future.

The ultimate question in a workers compensation case is whether you have sustained a permanent vocational disability as a result of your injury. Therefore, considerations include your educational level, employment history, transferrable work skills, permanent restrictions and the nature and extent of your injury.
