What is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in Tennessee?

In every state, there is a required time limit that is set up in which an individual has the right to seek compensation after their injuries due to negligence. This time limit is referred to as the statute of limitations. In the state of Tennessee, the statute of limitations for car accident claims is one year from the date of the injury. This means that if an injury claim is not filed within this time frame, the case will not be heard.

What is the Difference Between Bodily Injury and Personal Injury?

When you have been injured in a car accident due to someone else's negligence, you may be seeking compensation for your pain and suffering. While some may use the terms “bodily injury” and “personal injury” interchangeably, these terms are entirely different in both a legal and an insurance context.

  • Bodily Injury- This type of liability insurance can help to pay for another person’s expenses, legal fees, or medical bills if you injure them in a car accident. Every state has different limits for how much bodily injury liability is required with each car insurance policy. You may also see these terms described as “pain and suffering” damages.
  • Personal Injury- Personal injury has an entirely separate meaning than bodily injury. Personal injury claims provide coverage for injuries other than bodily injury or property damage claims that may be a result of a car accident.
