The Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has moved workers' compensation cases online, in a new system that allows attorneys and self-represented litigants to file documents without printing copies or traveling to BWC offices across the state. The new "TNComp" electronic filing system allows all parties to file contested case pleadings in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. BWC modeled TNComp after the PACER platform used by the federal court system, but tailored it for Tennessee. Attorneys and litigants can now electronically file documents any time of the day, they can view any documents associated with the case, they receive notices when a new document is filed, and reminders of upcoming hearings.  All of the services offered on TNComp are provided to the user at no cost.
