How to Secure Compensation After an Accident in Tennessee
In order to secure compensation, you will need to file a claim within one year of the incident for an injury or within three years for personal property damage. This is in accordance with Tennessee's statute of limitations.
Tennessee recognizes comparative negligence, meaning the fault of each party is evaluated and given a percent of the blame. The less at fault you are for the accident, the higher the compensation you can collect. If each party is 50% at fault, however, no one will be able to secure damages.
To prove the driver was negligent and therefore at fault, you will need to demonstrate that:
- The defendant owed a duty to you (e.g. obeying traffic laws)
- The defendant did not fulfill this duty
- Not fulfilling this duty caused the accident
- The defendant's behavior was the proximate cause of your injury or damages
- You suffered actual damages
When determining the amount of compensation you receive, the court will assess your medical expenses, lost wages, cost of vehicle repair, disability, and pain and suffering. A skilled attorney will gather as much evidence as possible in order to demonstrate that you need and deserve maximum compensation.
