When it comes to Tennessee personal injury law, situations that arise involve some form of loss by the person who has been injured. As anyone would agree, there is no greater form of loss than when someone is killed suddenly. In these situations those who suddenly find themselves grieving need to seek the immediate help of Nashville wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible for many different reasons that are discussed below.

Tennesee Wrongful Death Claims – Move Forward Immediately

There are many reasons as to why someone who finds themselves in this position needs to move forward with either negotiating a settlement or filing a Tennessee wrongful death lawsuit as soon as possible. One such reason is that the statute of limitations regarding these types of claims is only one year.

This means that the family members of the person who has been killed because of the negligence, recklessness or even the intentional conduct of another person must file an action within one year of the date that the wrongful death occurred. Failure to do so will mean that the case will be dismissed when it is filed, even if it’s obvious that those responsible for the death would be held liable.

Compensation and Damages Available in Tennessee Wrongful Death Claims

Another reason that claims should be filed as quickly as possible is that when someone is suddenly killed, those loved ones who are left behind often find themselves in a situation of financial peril. Not only must funeral, burial and medical expenses be paid, but the family also has suddenly lost the income that the person who was killed was generating.

Therefore, those who file these lawsuits and recover either a settlement or obtain a jury verdict could recover damages that compensate them for these costs that have been incurred, for the income that has been and will be lost in the future, for the pain and suffering endured by the person who was killed between the time the act was committed and the death took place and for loss of consortium, which can sometimes be referred to as a loss of companionship.

How Nashville Wrongful Death Lawyers Can Help

Ultimately, families who find themselves without one of their members not only face potential financial difficulties, but they are also generally reeling in response to the shocking and tragic news they have received. Therefore, those who have suffered a tragic loss such as this one need to seek the immediate help of Nashville wrongful death lawyers who have been successfully defending the rights of suffering families for many years.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
