I was recently interviewed about a Tennessee Workers Compensation settlement involving a former Tennessee Titan. The case is interesting as we tend to think of work injury cases as only involving factory workers, construction workers, truck drivers or other physically demanding jobs. But just like these jobs, professional athletes are also employees and their jobs are also physically demanding.
The case also sheds some light on some strengths and weaknesses of the system. The system is supposed to make up for the loss of income someone has a result of the injury. This player only received $114,000.00. Although that may seem like a lot it is really very little when you consider how much income he has lost. However, the case does show a strength of the Tennessee Workers Compensation Law, that is he will receive medical treatment for the work injuries of the rest of his life. That is truly a blessing to many of your injured workers.
