The United Auto Workers has announced that it has ratified its contract with General Motors. You can read about the deal announced today here. As part of this package, the GM assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee will re-open and hopefully our friends in the auto industry and all of the subsidiaries that supply GM with parts will get back to work very soon. It is reported that 1,700 jobs will be created at the plaint in Maury County.

My firm has represented GM and Saturn employees injured on the job since the plant opened in the early 1990’s. GM workers’ compensation claims are not your typical claim. They are much more complicated. Therefore, as our GM clients and friends get back to work, let me know if you are injured and need Tennessee workers’ compensation attorney to protect your wages and your health care.
As seen by the recent ratification, health care is always going to be negotiable for GM. Most workers’ compensation cases include lifetime medical care for the work injury at no cost to the worker. However, the settlement must be set up in a way that maximizes this right to cover the unpredictable future.
Our Nashville injury lawyers and team are here for you if you need us. For now, let’s get back to work.
