In Tennessee, you have a very strict statute of limitation of one year for personal injury cases. That means, you must file an action or claim against a party within one year from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. If you do not do this, you will lose that claim.
Upon being injured by another party, you should immediately seek counsel from an attorney. Do not wait. Contact the Law Office of Eric K. Fox as soon as possible about your case. We handle personal injury cases involving:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents and tractor-trailer accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Fatal accidents
Do Not Let the Insurance Company String You Along
The insurance companies will often try and string injured parties along, making them believe that the check is in the mail to pay for the medical bills or property loss. Often, they are hoping that they can do this long enough for the one-year statute of limitations to expire so the injured party cannot bring a lawsuit. Do not let this happen to you.
We can refer you to doctors and medical providers if you do not have insurance. We have relationships with doctors, medical providers and chiropractors, where you can get treated, and they will get paid when your claim is resolved even if you do not have insurance and have a limited ability to pay.
Your First Priority Should Be Your Health
Also, if you feel like you were or may have been injured from the accident, do not wait to seek medical treatment. Get checked out as soon as possible. Have a doctor figure out what injuries you have and what treatment he or she advises. If you wait to do this, the insurance company will claim that your injuries were the result of some other event that happened after the incident. The longer you wait to get treated, the harder it is to prove that the other party caused your injuries.
As soon as you have sought medical treatment for injuries arising from someone's negligence, give us a call immediately and set up a free consultation. We will not charge for our services for these cases as we take them on a contingency fee basis. That means, we do not get paid until we either settle your case or obtain a judgment after trial. We take a percentage of the proceeds obtained.
