What Constitutes Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?

Defective products, auto accidents, premises liability, professional malpractice, and a variety of other incidents can all result in personal injuries in Dayton, TN. The majority of these personal injury claims involve incidents that are caused by the defendant’s reckless or negligent behavior.

The following are the primary aspects of negligence that you must establish in a personal injury claim:

  • That the responsible person owes a duty of care
  • That the accused breached their duty of care to you; that the at-fault party’s activities were the direct cause of your losses or injuries;
  • That the accused breached their duty of care to you; that the at-fault party’s activities were the direct cause of your losses or injuries;

While a defendant’s legal obligation varies based on their state and the circumstances, everyone is expected to do everything able to prevent accidents. For instance, drivers should not drive while intoxicated, retail stores should have dry floor surfaces free of debris that might cause slip and fall incidents, and producers should not sell defective items. Personal injury cases include car accidents, product liability, dog attacks, and slip and fall incidents.

Tennessee’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is one year, beginning on the date of the injury. Although a year may appear to be a long time, it is one of the shortest times to bring a lawsuit in the country. Although not all injuries are visible right once, the clock begins ticking straight away. If you decide to bring a lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenditures incurred as a result of an accident, all necessary documentation must be submitted before the one-year deadline, otherwise, your case will be dismissed.

Personal Injury Areas We Cover

Car Accidents

Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury claims. Crashes involving two or more automobiles are included in car accident claims. Instances in which a car collides with a pedestrian or a cyclist are also possible.

Truck Accidents

Large truck and tractor-trailer accidents frequently result in major injuries and catastrophic fatalities. In truck accident cases, there may be a lot of legal wrangling, especially if the truck driver is someone’s employee as the case may include the driver and/or the trucking company. Since these accidents can be so devastating, the amount of damages sought after in a truck accident claim could also be significantly higher.

Premises Liability

Accidents on someone’s property caused by unsafe circumstances or carelessness give rise to premises liability claims. Slip-and-fall accidents, dog attacks, and swimming pool injuries are all instances of premises liability cases. 

Animal Attacks

Animal attacks or dog bites can be anything from a small irritation to a life-threatening situation. Dog bites are a typical sort of personal injury claim because you want the owner to be held accountable if you or a loved one is injured.

Bike Accidents

Bike accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or death due to the lack of protection and the risk provided by careless motorists. They also lead to complicated personal injury claims, with insurers attempting to limit their exposure.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or death due to the lack of protection and the risk provided by careless motorists. They also lead to complicated personal injury claims, with insurers attempting to limit their liability.

Personal Injury Cases in Tennessee

To prove negligence in a Tennessee personal injury claim, you must demonstrate that the irresponsible party owed you a duty of care, that he or she breached that duty, that the breach caused your injuries, and that you suffered economic or non-economic damages as a result of the injuries, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and other losses. All of these elements must be documented and submitted in your insurance claim or your case against the irresponsible person in court.  Additionally, time restrictions may apply. Most states have a strict deadline, or Statute of Limitations, that must be adhered to.
