Tennessee Supreme Court Eases Statute of Limitations for Workers Comp Cases

Our Supreme Court has issued an opinion that may give employees a little more time to file a Tennessee Workers Compensation Case. Specifically, the court has clarified just how long an injured Tennessee employee has to file a claim. The court ruled that the employee has one year from the date he should know they sustained a permanent injury. This is very important in gradual injury cases and in cases where an employee may not realize just how serious their work injury may be. You can watch the interview below for a more detailed explanation of the ruling:
