In addition to discussing whether you have a viable personal injury claim and the type of damages that are recoverable, an experienced car accident attorney can also advise you on the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim, which refers to the length of time you have to file a particular claim with the court. According to Tennessee Code Title 28-3-104, plaintiffs generally have up to one year from the time of the accident, or from when the injury was reasonably discoverable, to file a personal injury claim based on negligence.
