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.

There are certain exceptions to the one-year rule but it is highly advisable to lodge your claim as soon as possible through a Dunlap personal injury lawyer.
