THE BASICS OF PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS
If a person or company is responsible for causing injury to someone else, that person can be required under the law to compensate the victim for any losses they sustained. Compensation is meant to help the party with the injury recover and help them go back to the life they had prior to becoming injured. Certain claims may result in punitive damages which is extra compensation that the person responsible pays as punishment for the actions they took to discourage them from taking those actions again or causing further injuries.
When a personal injury is sustained in any type of incident, it often will create a great hardship on the entire family. Our legal team knows how important it is for victims to just get back to their daily routine as soon as possible. We know that you have treatment payments adding up, loss of income to worry about and that you need to know that insurance will keep paying you for any expenses you may have later on due to being injured.
TIME IS IMPORTANT
Every personal injury case is governed by specific statute of limitations. In general, the statute of limitations in Tennessee for injury cases is one year. This statute can be tolled in certain situations, like the victim being a minor, but these exceptions are rare. Regardless, in addition to the limited time to file a lawsuit it is also important to remember the importance of gathering evidence early in a case. Over time peoples' memories fade, skid marks disappear and documents get lost. As such, we recommend that you contact a lawyer early in any serious injury case. You may only have one chance to gather and preserve evidence early and if you miss that opportunity you may regret it later.
