Can you have a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim at the same time? Fortunately, the answer can be yes. In workers’ compensation claims in the state of Tennessee, unfortunately your benefits can be very limited, so it’s always important to look for a third party to recover against. The bad news is, if you’re injured by your employer due to your employer’s negligence or by a co-employee, you’re not going to be able to file a third-party claim – but a lot of times you may be injured by another vehicle or somebody employed by another company. In that case, you can make a third-party claim, and it’s very important to do so.
In making that sort of claim, you want to make sure you have an attorney that’s skilled with both the personal injury claim and the workers’ compensation claim, not just an attorney that knows one or the other. We are those attorneys at Bank and Jones, and if you’re in this situation I want you to contact me, Chris Beavers. You can reach me at 865-546-2141 or go to our website at BanksJones.com.
