Worker's Compensation Curtailed

The Governor of Tennessee and Tennessee Legislature has severely curtailed workers' rights to claim compensation for injuries suffered through negligence. The Workers Compensation Act puts limits on how much can be recovered for the loss of a loved one - therefore it is crucial to determine who is responsible in the cause of injury or death. If an injury or death is caused by a third party (for example, in a car crash when the employee is driving a company car), damages can be recovered from the third party, in addition to compensation gained through workers compensation laws. All possible avenues should be explored in order to gain sufficient redress for injury or death.
