In Tennessee, a wrongful death lawsuit asserts that the defendant caused the death of another individual-either due to recklessness, negligence, and malicious intent. Examples of situations from which a wrongful death lawsuit might arise include medical malpractice, slip and falls, construction site accidents, truck accidents, car accidents, and more.
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.
