What injuries can I get benefits for?

In Tennessee’s workers’ comp system, you are typically entitled to benefits for injuries and illnesses that are work related. These can be immediate injuries from an accident, injuries developed over time or a worsening of existing conditions. Whatever the nature of your work injury is, Kevin is here to help you pursue benefits for medical treatment and (if applicable) lost wages.

Is my employer required to have workers’ compensation insurance?

Most employers in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ comp insurance if they have five or more employees. There are exceptions to this in certain industries.

How long does a workers’ compensation claim take?

Under Tennessee law, you have 30 days to report an injury and one year to file your workers’ compensation claim. Once you have filed, your employer’s insurer must reach out to you within 48 hours. The insurer is to decide on your claim within 14 days of making contact with you.

Can my employer fire me for pursuing workers’ comp?

No, it’s against Tennessee law to terminate an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim.

Do I need an attorney?

Having an attorney isn’t mandatory. However, tackling a workers’ comp claim alone can be risky due to the system’s complexity. A trusted lawyer like Kevin can simplify the process, steer you away from pitfalls and advocate for your best interests.
