What Can Be Accomplished Through a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims are the law’s way of acknowledging a loved one’s place in your life. While no amount of money could possibly define a person’s value, the courts do provide a way to recover the lost wages and contributions your loved one would have made. Whether the decedent was your parent, sibling, or spouse, the law holds at-fault parties responsible for any lost income in a wrongful death suit.

Wrongful death claims can include compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages / income / funds
  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of health or insurance benefits
  • Contributions that would have been provided
  • Loss of ”consortium” (for spouses)
  • Loss of care, guidance, or protection
  • Pain, suffering, grief, or traumatic loss

Time Limits for Wrongful Death Claims in Tennessee

Beyond determining whether or not there are grounds to proceed with a wrongful death suit, claims should proceed in a timely fashion. According to Tennessee state law, wrongful death actions must be filed within one year of the accident in question. Failing to act within this time frame could strip survivors of their legal options by default.

It goes without saying that pursuing legal action probably isn't the first thing on your mind after losing a loved one in a tragic accident. However, Tennessee law only opens a very specific and strict window of time for action.

Helping Families Through Difficult Times

"The day I walked through your door I was touched by God's grace. You may not have realized you were being used, but you were. You gave me back a sense of hope and a vision of goodness, something I'd lost with the death of my husband. I am deeply grateful to have found you. I think often of the kindness you extended to me and my family."
