Is there a deadline to file a lawsuit for truck wreck cases in Tennessee?
Yes. Statutes of limitation passed by our legislature limit the time to file a lawsuit in all types of cases. The length of time varies depending on the type of case. In most instances you have one year from the date of the incident causing injury to bring a lawsuit, although shorter time limitations apply in some types of cases. In cases involving truck accidents, any lawsuit must be filed within one year of the date of the accident. Failure to file suit on time will result in a loss of your rights.
Given the many factors that must be considered in determining your specific deadline to file a lawsuit, the best course of action if you believe you have a potential legal action is to contact a lawyer immediately. Our firm will meet with you at no charge to help you determine if you have a claim and help you understand what deadline for taking action actually applies in your case.
