Sharon Fortner discusses the statute of limitations for property damages in Tennessee. For example, if you have a car accident and someone else damages your car, you would have three years from the date the accident occurred to either negotiate a settlement or file a property damage lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit before the three-year statute of limitations has run, you will be forever barred from filing your lawsuit in court. If you have suffered property loss due to an accident that was not your fault, don’t try to keep up with strict deadlines. Your best bet is to go ahead and call us here at Cordts Law Firm and one of our attorneys will help you with your property damage claim.
