Time Limits for Filing a Claim in Tennessee
In civil law and litigation, different types of claims have ‘statutes of limitations.’ This is the legal term for the time limit the injured person has to file their claim to recover damages. Many people don’t know how long they have to file a claim, or even that there is a deadline in the first place. As a result, they miss their opportunity to pursue the compensation they deserve.
In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for injury claims is one year from the date your injury occurred. This includes medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death, and other scenarios. One year may seem like a long time, but it isn’t forever. We recommend that you speak to one of our personal injury attorneys as soon as possible after your injury. The sooner our team can start preparing your case, the better your chances of reaching a favorable outcome.
