Cordova, TN asked in Personal Injury, Traffic Tickets, Workers' Compensation and Car Accidents for Tennessee

Q: My license was revoked due to an insurance claim. I wasn't informed of a court date for it or anything.

This is also a worker's comp case. Shouldn't my previous employer's insurance cover it since the accident happened in a work vehicle? Also, I don't recall ever giving a police statement and I never received a copy of the accident report. Also, I had some open fractures to my hand and road-rash from when I was T-Boned in the accident and went to Physical Therapy for several months. I have had two surgeries and am looking at a third. What do I do?

A: I agree with you based upon the facts you have given. After an accident you have to submit a proof of financial responsibility form with the state indicating you had coverage. I am hoping this is as simple as submitting proof to the state. But you have several issues going on. You may have a third party claim against the person that hit you. You may have a workers compensation claim.
