Richard House, Esq.

"

Mr. House, spent almost four years representing me on a very complex, extremely difficult Workman's Compensation case against one of the biggest hospital in the Nashville area.

 

He is very  diligent, his knowledge of the law was very beneficial in

my situation.  He knows all the changes and updates, which was crucial to winning my case. 

 

His personality is very unique, even on a very bad day he can put a smile on your face. Mr. House is currently representing me in another case, he is the only Attorney I would ever call. I highly recommend that if you find yourself in need of an Attorney, give Mr. House a call, you will find, that is the ONLY call you need to make.

What you need to know about Tennnessee's 2014 Worker's Compensation law:

Tennessee's worker's compensation laws have recently undergone major changes (as of July 2014).

 

Now, part of all claims are handled now through the Court of Worker's Compensation Claims, with appointed judges making all decisions on issues of temporary and permanent worker's compensation benefits.

{

  • The definition of injury has changed in Tennessee.

 

  • How worker's benefits are calcuated has changed.

 

  • Employers now have increased access to your medical records, without your consent.

 

  • In the past, close cases were to be decided in the favor of the worker. Under the new law, decisions are to be made without favoring either party.
