Tennessee Work Injury Attorney
Workers' compensation in Tennessee can be confusing. The law is supposed to provide payment to people who are injured on the job, regardless of fault. However, injured workers can face a maze of rules and regulations, making it difficult to determine their eligibility, how long they can receive medical treatment and when they must return to work.
If you were frustrated when trying to obtain full workers' compensation benefits, you are not alone. In fact, the Tennessee Legislature created a special section of the Tennessee Supreme Court just to hear cases arising from disputes over workers' compensation.

Advice About Workers' Compensation
If you are injured at work, even if you think your injuries are minor, you should take the following steps to protect yourself:
- Seek emergency medical treatment if needed
- Tell your supervisor
- File an injury report and keep a copy
- Record the names of any witnesses to the incident that caused your injury
If your injuries did not require a trip to the emergency room, you still need to see a doctor. The physician's report on your injuries will be a central part of any workers' compensation claim. Ask for a list of three doctors. Tennessee law prohibits workers' compensation from requiring you to see a specific medical provider.
