TN Workers’ Compensation Changes

The main goals of the workers’ comp bill are to design a system that is fair to both workers and employers in terms of benefits, to make the system easier to understand for injured workers, to lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums and to speed up the settling of work injury claims. Key components of the Tennessee workers’ compensation bill include the following:

Our Knowledgeable Workers’ Comp Lawyers Can Help

“Working to lower workers’ comp premiums is a key tool in helping bring new employers to Tennessee, said Workers’ Compensation Administrator Abbie Hudgens. “We want to do everything we can to encourage new employers to start their businesses in Tennessee.” And while it may seem like Tennessee employers are the ones benefiting from the workers’ compensation reform, TN workers too, will benefit from lower rates of work injuries and illnesses. According to TOSHA Administrator Steve Hawkins, “TOSHA and Workers’ Compensation agree the best way to reduce costs is to maintain a safe and healthful workplace by eliminating or controlling workplace hazards.” If you have suffered workplace injuries in Nashville, or elsewhere in Tennessee, consult our knowledgeable lawyers at Michael D. Ponce & Associates for legal help.

    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.
