Tennessee Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

In Tennessee, wrongful death claims must be filed within one year of the date of the death. There are a few exceptions that may extended this timeframe, but due to the short amount of time you have to file a claim it is important to begin speaking with a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.

You Deserve Compensation for Your Loss

As you and your family mourn the loss of your loved one, you may not be focused on the financial toll that the wrongful death has taken. The reality is that a wrongful death can put not only an emotional but a financial burden on the victim’s family. Though it cannot undo the tragedy, financial compensation can help you put back together the pieces.

By pursuing a wrongful death claim, you can obtain financial compensation to cover:

  • Your loved one’s medical expenses leading up to their passing
  • Funeral expenses
  • Your loss of income
  • Your loss of companionship/consortium
  • You and your family’s emotional distress
