Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Henry S. Queener, III, Nashville, Tennessee, and, Jennifer K. O’Connell, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Christopher Lea Williams.

Attorneys 2:

Thomas M. Horne, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, John Buraczynski.

Judge(s): SWINEY

This appeal arises from a motor vehicle accident. Christopher Lea Williams (“Williams”) and John Buraczynski (“Buraczynski”) both worked for Progression Electric, LLC (“Progression”). In January 2015, Buraczynski was driving his vehicle with passenger Williams as part of a carpool arrangement when they were involved in an accident. Williams subsequently claimed he was entitled to and received workers’ compensation benefits. Williams then sued Buraczynski, personally, in the Circuit Court for Knox County (“the Trial Court”). Buraczynski filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing that Williams’ exclusive remedy was in workers’ compensation. The Trial Court granted Buraczynski’s motion. Williams appealed. We affirm the judgment of the Trial Court.
