I qualify for The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act that was effective 7/31/01. I recently participated in The Building Trades National Medical Screening Program
in Knoxville TN. One of my diagnosis was Noise Induced hearing loss? I would like to know if Permant disability or permanent partial disability is covered under work comp. in TN? If so, what is the process to file, time frame to complete claim & receive comp? I am also curious as to the amount of the check. I assume this payment will continue until I passaway, correct?
