Understanding the Time Limit on Your Case
Tennessee only gives accident victims one year from the date of their accident to take legal action against the liable party. If we do not file a personal injury lawsuit before the one-year deadline, the court is unlikely to allow us to file a civil suit in your case.
It is imperative we act quickly to investigate your accident and build a strong case for compensation. This means we can take action as soon as your injuries stabilize and we understand your future care needs. Call us as soon as possible after your accident to get started.
