Generally speaking, personal injury cases in Tennessee have a one year statute of limitation. Each case type will have its own relevant standards, so you should not delay in seeking legal advice. If your case cannot be resolved within the applicable statute of limitation, a lawsuit must be filed in the appropriate court. Personal injury lawsuits are commonly filed in the Circuit Court of Hamblen County, Tennessee, which is located in Morristown at 511 W. 2nd North Street. Consulting with a skilled personal injury attorney in the Morristown area can go a long way towards protecting your interests.
In a car or truck accident case, you will need to establish the defendant driver’s negligence. This entails showing the other driver breached a legal duty owed to you which caused you to suffer damages. In the context of an 18-wheeler crash, you may establish negligence against the driver or his employer. Interstate trucking companies and drivers must follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s regulations at all times. Further, employers must ensure their drivers receive proper training on subjects such as drug and alcohol testing, maneuvering the vehicle, hours of service, and more.
Premises liability is a fairly broad area of Tennessee law. Premises liability encompasses several situations where a business owner or property manager can be held responsible for someone getting hurt on their property. One of the most prominent types of premises liability accidents are slip and falls. Tennessee law states a property owner can be held responsible for injuries if they either created a dangerous condition that injured the victim or if they knew of the existence of a dangerous condition yet failed to take appropriate action to remedy the situation. Another subset of premises liability law concerns businesses that provide inadequate security for customers, visitors, or tenants. Case law in Tennessee allows innocent victims of criminal attacks to recover compensation from a property owner or manager that failed to properly act and take steps that could have prevented the attack.
When an individual goes to the doctor, they expect to be treated with care and appropriately diagnosed. In some cases, doctors and nurses do make mistakes, leading to severe complications. Medical malpractice cases can be complex, and the injured victim must establish that the health care provider breached the standard of care while either diagnosing or treating him or her. Under the law, the relevant standard of care may depend on the patient’s age, gender, the community where the act (or omission) occurred, and any other medical conditions the patient may have.Let Our Firm Get to Work for You
