If you are an insurance adjuster or claims handler processing Tennessee workers’ compensation claims, the Division of Workers’ Compensation is here to help you! If an employee gets hurt at work or gets sick from his/her job an employer is expected to immediately notify their insurance carrier or third party administrator (TPA) so that the claim can be processed timely. Tennessee’s workers’ compensation system requires most employers to pay for the medical treatment needed. Employees do not have to pay to get workers’ compensation benefits. It, generally, does not matter whether the accident was the employee’s fault, another worker’s, or the employer’s. Employees still get the benefits spelled out in Tennessee’s Workers’ Compensation law.
