What is the Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
The general rule in Tennessee is that you have one year from the date you are injured to bring a lawsuit against the responsible parties. Unfortunately there are exceptions to that rule. Some of those exceptions give you more time to file a case and some of those exceptions can actually give you less time to file a case.
It all depends on the type of case you have and the type of product or medical device involved.
Therefore we recommend that people talk with an experienced personal injury lawyer promptly after they have been hurt so they can understand what their legal rights are, including what deadline applies for them to bring a claim.
At the Law Offices of John Day, we are happy to sit down and meet with you and discuss your legal rights and legal obligations so that you have a full understanding of what you need to do to protect yourself under any sort of circumstance.
