Am I Entitled To Receive Prejudgment Interest For My Compensatory Damages?

prejudgment interest

Unfortunately, the short answer is: no. Tennessee law does not allow prejudgment interest. However, Tennessee law does permit interest on a judgment (an order entered by the court after you win your case at trial). This is referred to as post-judgment interest.

Because injury victims are not entitled to prejudgment interest, it is critical for you to hire a lawyer who can quickly resolve your case.
