Important 2011 Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Cases

Over the next few weeks, we will provide a short summary of the some of the important Tennessee workers’ compensation cases that were issued last year.  We will begin with a Tennessee Supreme Court case addressing “scope” of employment.  In Dixon v. Travelers Indemnity Col, 336 S.W.3d 532 (Tenn. 2011), the employee was a truck driver that was injured as the result of a tornado.  The Court held the injuries sustained as a result of the tornado were compensable because his job as a truck driver placed him at a higher risk of injury from a tornado than the general public.

The Hamilton Firm routinely represents injured truck drivers, with extensive experience representing employees of Covenant Transport and US Xpress.  If you are a truck driver and have been injured on the job, feel free to contact our office.
