Nashville Workers’ Compensation FAQs


After a workplace injury, you should first report your injury to your employer and request medical treatment. Your employer should provide you with a list of approved medical providers from whom you can seek treatment without delay. Once your condition is stable, you should follow up with your employer to confirm your claim has been filed properly, all benefits are being paid, and light-duty accommodations can be made for any medical restrictions you may have.

Employers may try to deny injured workers like you the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve after on-the-job injuries. The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Ponce Law can investigate your accident and stand up for your rights.

It’s against the law for employers to terminate employees for reporting workplace injuries or filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. If your employer retaliates against you for reporting your injury, you may be eligible to file a claim for wrongful termination.

Personal injury claims may be filed by anyone who suffered an injury that was caused by the negligence of another person, company, or government agency. Workers’ compensation benefits are provided to employees who are injured on the job and are covered by employers’ state-regulated insurance. Almost all employers in Tennessee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to compensate their employees if they get hurt on the job.

If you are injured on the job, you may be eligible to receive a variety of benefits, such as:

The families of workers who are killed in workplace accidents also may be eligible to receive a portion of their loved one’s income as workers’ compensation benefits.
