Wrongful Death

Like almost all personal injury cases in Tennessee, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is one year from the date of the incident giving rise to the death. Therefore, if you believe that negligence was the cause of your loved one’s death, then you must act promptly to preserve your rights. Basically, what we want you to do is just come and meet with us, give us the details and then go about doing what you have to do during your time of mourning. We will take care of everything else – we will contact any witnesses and do our very best to preserve any evidence that would be relevant to the claim. It might be necessary to retain experts immediately or we might have to travel to an accident scene to take detailed pictures and measurements – the point is that we need to act promptly to make sure that we gather information before it is lost forever. We want you to have the answer to why the accident happened but we need to act quickly.
