Do I Have An Injury Case?
In some cases, people choose not to file a claim because they are uncertain if their case is worth pursuing. It’s important to speak with our team of personal injury lawyers so we can evaluate the details of your case to see if you’re eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
We believe victims who have suffered injuries after an accident should receive compensation for the damages caused by someone else’s carelessness. Although compensation will not alleviate your injuries, it can help make life a little easier moving forward.
What Is A Statute Of Limitations?
Most personal injury lawsuits have a specific deadline, which is known as a statute of limitations. In the state of Tennessee, you have one year after the date the accident occurred to file a lawsuit.
If you wait to file a lawsuit, the court may decide not to hear your case and you may lose your opportunity to receive compensation for your injuries. It’s vital to file a claim as soon as possible after the accident and speak with an attorney about your legal options.

What Damages Can I Receive For My Injuries?
Often times, people are curious about the amount of compensation they could receive for their injuries. The overall value of the case is determined by multiple factors such as the severity of your injuries and the accident itself. Compensation can include:
Those involved in a personal injury accident may require medical treatment such as surgery, physical therapy, tests, and medication. In some cases, a victim may need future medical care if injuries were severe or permanent. Compensation can help cover expensive medical costs after an accident.
Pain And Suffering
This type of compensation is based upon the extent of the pain and suffering you have experienced as a direct result of the accident. Although an award can be given to a plaintiff for pain and suffering, it must be proven that the injury was a direct cause of someone else’s careless actions.
Sometimes injuries can cause you to miss work. Time away from work, or the inability to work, could mean little to no income. If you’re unable to work, you could be compensated for the time you spent away due to your injuries.
Loss Of Consortium
If you lost a loved one, or they have suffered injuries that drastically impacted your relationship, you may be able to file for compensation.
These types of claims can be filed by a surviving loved one for the death of a family member.
Compensation could be awarded for mental and emotional damage. Sometimes injuries can cause anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can impact an individual’s overall well-being.
