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

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.
