The Tennessee Workers' Compensation Act entitles (a person) to benefits for injuries, occupational diseases or death suffered on the job. Although everyone heals differently and at a different rate of speed, workers' compensation cases vary in duration of time to achieve resolution. People who suffer on-the-job injuries are entitled to:
- Reimbursement of unlimited medical expenses, including mileage to and from medical appointments.
- Prescription reimbursement.
- Two-thirds of your weekly wage while you are unable to work and are off work.
- Two-thirds of the difference between what you were earning at the time of your injury and what you are earning at the time you reach maximum medical improvement, if you return to work at a lesser paying, modified job.
- Lifetime medical expenses for your specific injury
- A disfigurement award for visible scars, burns and limps.
- A physical impairment rating if your condition is permanent.
- Penalties if the workers' compensation carrier does not follow certain rules.
