Is There A Time Limit for Filing A Case Against a Tennessee Nursing Home?

My mother was hurt in a nursing home in Chattanooga.  What it the time limit for filing a lawsuit against a nursing home in Tennessee?

You should assume that you must take appropriate legal action within one year of the date of the negligent act unless a lawyer aware of all of the facts advises you that you have more time. 

As you might guess, it is possible that there is an exception to the rule expressed above, but the application of the exception is fact-dependent and the law on the issue is complicated.  Thus,  please contact a qualified lawyer quickly so that an appropriate investigation can be made and the lawyer can determine the validity of the claim.  

The failure to bring suit in the time required by law will result in a loss of your rights.
