What is Considered Negligence in Tennessee?

A person is considered negligent by acting, or failing to act, in a certain way that results in someone else suffering injury or loss. In order to claim negligence, the plaintiff must prove that:

  • The defendant owed a duty to the plaintiff
  • The defendant breached this duty
  • The breach of duty caused injury to the plaintiff
  • The defendant’s action or inaction was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's injury
  • The plaintiff suffered actual, quantifiable damages

Tennessee Dog Bite Laws

Generally, in order to file a claim for a dog bite, the plaintiff must prove that the owner knew, or reasonably should have known, that the dog would act aggressively. Note that dog owners do not need to prove negligence or fault if the dog injured an individual or damaged their personal property and the plaintiff was in a private place with permission or in a public place.
