Important 2011 Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Cases – Idiopathic Injuries

So called “idiopathic” injuries can be problematic in the workers’ compensation context.  For example, in Veller v. Wackenhut Services, Inc., a workers’ compensation panel denied coverage for an employee who suffered a knee injury while standing and reaching for paperwork located on a shelf near his work station.  If you are hurt on the job, you may encounter a denial of your claim based upon the “idiopathic” injury defense.  It is important to contact an attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.
