Tennessee traffic collisions, which include car and truck crashes, pedestrian collisions, bicyclist collisions, and motorcyclist collisions, have been on the rise in recent years. Despite newer model cars being equipped with collisions avoidance systems, fatalities have been steadily rising, with over 1,100 people killed on Tennessee roads in 2019, according to tntrafficsafety.org. Distracted driving, aggressive driving and speeding, drunk driving, and fatigued driving or falling asleep at the wheel are the most common causes of all traffic collisions.
Energy and Atomic Workers’ Compensation Claims
2,400 Tennessee workers are employed in the nuclear power sector, while thousands more are employed in other forms of energy production, including coal mining and coal-fired power plants, according to the Nuclear Energy Institute. Many of these jobs come with certain risks, and even the most prudent workers can become injured on the job through no fault of their own. In other cases, employers cut corners by not taking safety precautions to heart, resulting in dangerous work environments that can lead to serious health and safety concerns.
Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
By filing a personal injury claim against a negligent party, you can recover the following damages:
- Medical bills;
- Future medical expenses;
- Lost wages and lost earning ability;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of joy of life;
- Emotional distress;
- Property damage; and
A workers’ compensation claim, on the other hand, covers:
- Full medical costs associated with the injury;
- Partial wage replacement (either temporary or permanent);
- Compensation for a lost limb or body part; and
- Transportation costs to and from medical appointments.
Certain egregious actions by an employer, or if a worker is exposed to toxic substances, can also result in a personal injury claim on top of a workers’ compensation claim, which can drastically increase the victim’s overall compensation.
