When can I reopen my case?
In most workmen’s compensation injuries, the compensation amount to which you are entitled will be limited if you go back to work at the same pay rate with the same employer. However, it is important to remember that if, through no fault of yours, you lose your job you oftentimes can reopen your case in order to gain more compensation. As an example, company cutbacks that cause you to be laid off should entitle you to have your case reopened. Often our firm sees employees attempt to return to work only to realize later that they are no longer physically capable of performing their job. If, after receiving a compensation settlement you find you’ve lost your job, please feel free to contact us and let us determine if Tennessee law may entitle you to additional compensation.
