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.

The value of any case is based on how much a jury would likely provide by way of a verdict if the case were to be tried. Insurance companies place value on a case based upon how much exposure they believe they and their insured may have. That is, insurance companies usually won’t pay any more to resolve your claim than they believe they are exposed to pay if the case is tried. Plaintiff’s lawyers also value cases on the basis of what a jury would likely provide by way of verdict. There are innumerable factors that can motivate a jury to provide a strong verdict. Likeability of the parties, seriousness of the injuries involved, the amount of medical expenses incurred, whether any injuries are permanent, likeability and/or capability of the lawyers, the culpability of the Defendant (was Defendant texting, drunk, or a habitual offender?), and many other factors can affect a jury’s verdict. While you may find “pain and suffering calculators” on the internet, there is no formula or equation that will provide an accurate calculation of what a jury may provide by way of verdict. The best you can achieve is to listen to an attorney that has extensive experience in the area, and in particular, extensive experience in the local area in which the case would be tried if not settled.
