When workers in Tennessee are injured on the job, they may feel like their world is turned upside down. Instead of being able to complete their daily routine, show up to work and get paid, they may be left with the aftermath of a serious injury that could need significant medical treatment and a period of recovery. So, what do these individuals need to know about workers' compensation in Tennessee?
When many of our readers in Tennessee think of personal injury law, they likely think of lawsuits that are initiated after a car accident. But, while these types of lawsuits are indeed quite common, personal injury lawsuits can be based on a wide variety of incidents, including workplace accidents, accidents that occurred due to defective products and even accidents that occur based on dangerous property conditions. In fact, most so-called "accidents" are likely caused due to another party's negligent or reckless conduct.
