My husband was killed in a wreck with a tractor trailer. It was not his fault. What is the minimum amount of money I can recover for his death in a lawsuit?
There is no minimum. The amount of damages that can be recovered depends on a multitude of factors. You can get some idea of the relevant factors by reading our legal guide, "Understanding Wrongful Death Cases in Tennessee."
Remember that under Tennessee law a wrongful death case must be filed in court within one year of the time your husband received injuries that resulted in his later death.
