When my husband I decided to start a business, we didn't think about the legal aspects of doing so. We didn't realize that purchasing business insurance, getting building permits and making investments all required some type of legal advice. But after speaking to a close friend, who also happens to own a small business, we contacted a business attorney.

If you live and work in Tennessee, you may have heard rumblings about potential changes to workers compensation laws that could cap both the amount of time you're able to receive benefits and the total amount of benefits an insurance company may pay out to you following a workplace injury.
