How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Tennessee?

Tennessee laws are strict in regards to wrongful death lawsuits. The "statute of limitations" in the state is one year. This means-generally speaking, with only a few exceptions-that you have one year from the date of the victim's death to file a claim.

It is important to speak with a Memphis wrongful death lawyer well before this deadline. Our team is happy to answer your questions about personal injury and to tell you more about your options. We are here to serve you at this difficult time.
