Premise Liability Lawsuits in Tennessee

There are millions of cases of workplace injuries per year, most of which are settled by the company’s Workman’s Compensation insurance coverage. However, in some cases, Workman’s Compensation may be inadequate in collecting the damages an injured employee requires. In some instances, a premise liability lawsuit may be filed, which claims that the accident occurred as a result of the employer’s negligent actions. If you have been the victim of a workplace injury, our Nashville premise liability injury lawyers can help you receive the information and assistance you need in order to receive adequate compensation for your injuries.

Nashville Premise Liability Accident Coverage

The Workman’s Compensation system is designed to provide benefits to injured workers regardless of fault, but assumes, in exchange, a mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for negligence. Moreover, Workman’s Compensation provides only limited coverage to injured employees and does not provide compensation for pain and suffering or punitive damages for employer negligence.

While Worker’s Compensation regulations prevent certain parties, such as employers, from being sued directly, the injured employee can file a premise liability lawsuit against a third party if he believes that this party is responsible for his damages. This third party may, in turn, sue the employer for having to pay damages due to the employer’s own negligence.

In order to claim negligence, the injured employee must prove the following:

By providing evidence supporting these factors, an injured worker can increase his chances in building a successful premises liability lawsuit.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
