Personal Injury Filing Time Deadline

Check out this month’s City View Magazine, where our attorney Jesse James Campbell discusses Personal Injury Cases in Tennessee and why hiring an attorney is so helpful during the process. The main point of the article is that Time is NOT on Your Side when it comes to filing a personal injury claim. An injured person only has 1 year (365 days) to file a claim, which is relatively low compared to other states.

“In the state of Tennessee, the ticking clock takes on a crucial role when injuries occur due to someone else’s negligence. The one-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases may initially seem like a generous timeframe, but its brevity becomes apparent with closer consideration. Fortunately, individuals facing this challenge can turn to personal injury attorneys for not just legal guidance but also empathetic support throughout this intricate journey.

According to Tennessee law, individuals struggling with personal injuries have a mere one-year window from the date of their injury to either settle their claim or initiate a lawsuit. While a year may sound like plenty of time, personal injury cases unfold with nuances that demand time and attention.”
