Negligence

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

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.

Car Accident Claims

Tennessee is known as an “at fault” jurisdiction for car accident insurance claims. The state's "49 percent rule" requires that an injured driver be less at fault than the defendant in order to recover, and that any damages must be reduced proportionally with the injured driver's percentage of fault.

In car accident claims, you can recover both economic and non-economic damages, such as vehicle repair costs, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

If someone passes away due to another person’s negligence or misconduct, the surviving family members may sue for wrongful death. Note that regardless of the underlying circumstances, you must prove that the loss of life was caused by someone's wrongful or negligent conduct.

Generally, those who can file a wrongful death lawsuit in Tennessee are the deceased person’s:

  • Spouse
  • Child or next of kin, if there is no surviving spouse
  • Parent
  • Personal representative

In most cases, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within 1 year of the date of the person's death.
