Tennessee Personal Injury Laws
Before you bring forth a personal injury case, there are a few very important things to know about Tennessee personal injury laws. For example, a personal injury suit may only be brought forth when the defendant’s negligent action was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s harm, with an action being considered “negligent” when it falls outside of the scope of what a reasonable person in the same situation would do.
The second thing to know is that Tennessee recognizes the rule of modified comparative fault, which holds that a plaintiff’s damages will be reduced in proportion to their degree of fault (but that they will not be barred from recovery so long as they are not more than 50 percent to blame).
There is also a statute of limitations in place in Tennessee, which puts a limit on the amount of time that a plaintiff has to bring forth a suit after an injury occurs. This limit is one year from the date the cause of action accrues, as found in Section 28-3-104 of Tennessee Code.
