A car accident can quickly turn your life—and your finances—upside down. In the weeks during your injury recovery, you will likely accrue hundreds or even thousands in medical bills, all at a time when you are unable to earn money to pay for them. The good news is that Tennessee injury laws allow accident victims to recover many of their monetary losses by filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

Types of Compensation Available to Tennessee Car Accident Victims
In an injury case, any costs you have incurred or paid out of pocket as a result of your injury are called economic damages. Since the law allows a victim to be restored to a pre-injury state, there is no cap on economic damages in a Tennessee car accident case.
Common forms of damages you may be able to collect after a Tennessee car accident include:
- Medical damages
- Property damage
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death benefits
Since the time limit for filing an accident claim in Tennessee is just one year from the date of the accident, it is vital that you speak with an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible after a crash. If you have been injured in a car accident, we can get you the compensation you need to recover.
