Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Claim
Filing a personal injury claim is, in part, about seeking justice, holding the responsible party liable for damages, getting a sense of closure, and deterring others from engaging in similarly negligent actions. But it’s also about making sure that you get a settlement that fully compensates you for your injuries. By filing a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for the value of your:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Property damage;
- Future medical costs and lost earning capacity; and
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
If there are other damages you’ve suffered, our lawyer will work hard to make sure you get compensated. You deserve compensation for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses.
How a Sevier County Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
If you’ve been injured and someone else was to blame, working with a Sevier County personal injury lawyer is one of the best ways to improve the outcome of your case. A Sevier County personal injury lawyer will help you by:
- Reviewing your case free of charge and providing a recommendation about what your next steps should be and how to improve the outcome of your case.
- Investigating your case, including traveling to the accident scene, taking pictures, talking with witnesses, collecting police reports, and even hiring accident reconstruction and other experts.
- Determining liability and organizing supporting evidence to bolster your claim and prove fault. This includes disputing any allegations of shared fault made against you.
- Calculating your damages and issuing a demand letter against the at-fault party/insurer requesting compensation for your losses.
- Negotiating your settlement and advocating on your behalf so that an insurance company doesn’t get away with paying you far less than you deserve.
In addition to the above, an attorney can litigate your case in court if need be. Further, an attorney will help you to understand the laws related to your claim and be available to answer any questions throughout the process.
Tennessee Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
If you’ve been injured, the personal injury statute of limitations in Tennessee is an important deadline to know. A statute of limitations is a legal limit on how much time you have to file a claim after an injury has happened. In Tennessee, the personal injury statute of limitations is only one year. If you breach the one-year deadline, then you will be barred from recovering damages. For this reason, it’s smart to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to ensure that you don’t breach the statute of limitations, and to improve your chances of evidence in your case being free or well-preserved at the time that your attorney begins the investigation.
