Tennessee Statute of Limitations Tennessee Auto Accident
Tennessee has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. A civil lawsuit must be filed within the one year from the date of the accident if anyone was injured. Also, the timeline if there was vehicle damage is three years. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within one-year years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. Tennessee follows a “modified comparative negligence” rule that gives you the award for damages in a lawsuit, but it becomes reduced by your share of negligence.
