Were You Injured In A Crash While Traveling Through Tennessee?
Whether you were passing through Tennessee on Interstate 40 or you decided to spend a vacation in the state, if you were injured in a crash, there are certain things you need to know about filing a personal injury claim in this state.
Where And How To File
Where you file your claim is determined by the jurisdiction in Tennessee. It is a simple matter when the lawsuit relates only to this state, but it gets a little more complicated when parties from different states are involved. The jurisdiction can affect the outcome of your case because you will be suing under the state of Tennessee’s laws. When you choose to work with the law firm of Boren & Boyd, PLC, in Jackson, you can rest assured that our lawyers are very familiar with this state’s laws as they apply to your situation. It is important to understand that the case needs to be brought where it occurred and not where you live.
This state has a one-year statute of limitation on these types of cases, so we will work to ensure that your claim is filed within the appropriate time period. Contact us for a free consultation either by phone at 800-727-0622 or 731-300-6207 or online.
Your initial filing can be done over the phone, and we will ensure we have all the pertinent information about your accident so that the filing process can proceed in an efficient manner, whether you were injured by a distracted driver or were struck by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol. We will accomplish as much of the work as we can via phone or mail, but you will most likely have to appear in person for case-related hearings.
