A workplace injury can mean a lot of things for a Tennessee worker. For one, the injured employee will be struggling to heal from his or her injuries. Additionally, though, the person who suffers a job site injury may be so debilitated after an accident that the worker is no longer able to complete the duties of his or her job. When a worker cannot work, his or her income stops, creating another problem all together.
Fortunately, for most Tennessee workers, a job site injury will be covered under the state workers' compensation system. Indeed, an injured worker can often pursue benefits to pay for his or her medical care. A worker can also apply for benefits to pay for time spent unable to work. This way food can still be put on the table and rent and other expenses can get paid while the worker is healing from the injuries.
