Tennessee Personal Injury Laws

Making your way through the intricacies of Tennessee’s personal injury landscape can be challenging, but understanding these fundamental laws is essential to the success of your case.

In Tennessee, the concept of negligence is central to personal injury claims. To win your case, you must prove that someone else’s lack of care or wrongful action caused your injuries.

Additionally, Tennessee’s comparative negligence rule allows you to recover damages even if you’re partially at fault, provided your share of the blame is less than 50%. However, your settlement will be reduced by your percentage of fault. If you are found to be 50% or more at fault, you cannot recover any damages. This nuanced approach underscores the importance of expert legal guidance to navigate your claim successfully.

Tennessee law imposes a strict 1-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. To safeguard your claim to compensation, initiate your claim within this time frame. Delaying could jeopardize your chance to recover financially from your injuries. 

Given the complexities of investigating claims, gathering evidence, and building a robust case, starting early with professional legal assistance is your best strategy for success.

What a Personal Injury Settlement Includes in Cleveland, TN

A successful personal injury settlement in Cleveland, TN, relies on the demonstration of damages–evidence of the losses incurred as a result of the injury. In Tennessee, damages are categorized into two types: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages refer to quantifiable financial losses, such as medical expenses and lost wages.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, encompass intangible losses like pain and suffering. It’s important to note that the state of Tennessee places a cap of $750,000 on non-economic damages, except in cases involving catastrophic injury.

Guys listen! My Attorneys Jill Crouch and Brent who run the place are the most proficient accident attorneys I've ever witnessed! No lie, I got awarded an amount bigger than a yearly salary from an 18 wheeler accident settlement through them!! (If you know, you know!) I get paid sometime this month! It took less than a year to settle and the ONLY reason it took that long was because the treatment was extensive and needed months to complete.
