How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Case?man with injury

Many are often hesitant to take legal action in the aftermath of such a traumatic event. Unfortunately, you only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury claim and, after time runs out, you will miss out on your chance to recover compensation. In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case is one year. If a year passes, it is unlikely a judge will hear your cases, which is why it is crucial to take action as soon as possible.

Compensation in a Personal Injury Case

No two injuries are alike, so not all personal injury cases will yield the same damages.

Below are some of the most common types of damages in a personal injury case:

  • Loss of income and loss of future income
  • Medical expenses, including future costs associated with the injury
  • Household expenses
  • Expenses associated with changed plans or cancelled trips
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Mental anguish

If the injuries become fatal, a surviving family member can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation in such cases may include funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, emotional distress, loss of companionship, and more.

Moreover, in Tennessee, punitive damages may be awarded if there is clear evidence that the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious. Depending on the details of your case, you may receive punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages.
