Knoxville attorney Sam Doak of Arnett, Draper and Hagood writes in the Knoxville News Sentinel that Tennessee’s relatively new workers’ compensation law – effective July 1, 2014 – is causing some confusion when it comes to how medical and other temporary benefits are addressed. “The point is that the parties need to think ahead, be smart about what issues they dispute and be prepared to appear before a judge to justify their position with admissible evidence if they cannot reach a compromise,” Doak writes.
