How much time do I have to file a claim for a wreck with a tractor-trailer or bus that happened in Tennessee?
In the wreck took place in Tennessee you should assume you only have one year to bring a legal action against the people and companies that caused the wreck unless a competent lawyer with knowledge of all of the circumstances tells you to the contrary.
However, it would be a mistake to wait any significant time to call a lawyer. The insurance and trucking companies often have expert witnesses and lawyers go to the scenes of serious trucking accidents. They are gathering evidence and preparing for a defense, and you need to have a lawyer start doing the same for you. Waiting even thirty days to get legal assistance may mean that valuable evidence is gone and therefore we urge you to contact an experienced truck and bus accident lawyer as soon as possible. Trucking and bus accident cases have been a part of my practice for 30 years.
