Any person who is injured on the job is entitled to medical care and wage loss benefits. These benefits are granted without regard to fault, as long as the accident, injury or illness was work-related.
Some states have adopted no-fault auto insurance for dealing with minor car accidents. Tennessee is not one of those states. If you were injured in a wreck, you will have to bring a claim against the other driver — and your own degree of fault may alter your compensation.

The workers’ compensation process can be complex and confusing. Unfortunately, you cannot count on your employer for information or advice. Employers and their insurers have their own interests to protect. They may even be hostile to your claim.
People on workers’ compensation commonly ask “What is my case worth?” It’s a complex question. Often, they are really questioning whether they are being treated fairly by the employer, the insurer and the workers’ comp doctors. Or they are considering cashing out their disability claim for a lump sum settlement.
After an on-the-job injury, you may be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits to help you cover your medical expenses and lost wages. However, these funds are not always enough to help you get your life back on track.
You experienced serious auto accident injuries after another driver ran a red light. You cannot go back to work but have mounting medical bills. Just a few days after the wreck, you get a phone call from someone who says they can help you sue the responsible driver.
