Canadians Involved in Car Accidents in Tennessee

Snowbirds love going to the state of Tennessee.  It offers sunshine, fun and minimal taxes.  It is the home of the University of Tennessee Volunteers, the NHL Predators, and the NFL Titans.  Lets not forget the country music capital of the world, Nashville, and Dolly Parton’s “Dolly World”.

Tennessee Tourism Information

Unfortunately, Tennessee car accidents are common among snowbirds travelling to, or through the state.  If a Snowbird is involved in a personal injury car accident, a lawsuit must be commenced against the person who caused the accident within 1 year – Tennessee Statute section 28-3-104.  If not, you will be precluded from bringing a claim for pain and suffering.

Tennessee is a “modified comparative negligence” state.  You must be less than 50% at fault, in order to recover compensation for your losses.

Please note, any contractual (insurance) rights and remedies a Snowbird has such as PIP or accident benefits must be dealt with in their respective state or province. Furthermore, passengers are generally not at fault for an accident.  Therefore passengers can recover 100% of their damages.

Since 1981, we have been helping seriously injured motorists get the treatment and care they need to recover from their injuries and receive compensation for their losses. We understand it is not only the injured party that requires assistance, but also loved ones that face significant challenges in dealing with the ramifications of the accident.

Cross-border car accidents are complicated.  This is where we come in.

We arrange for you to speak to some of the best personal injury attorneys in Tennessee, who are familiar with cross-border accidents.  They work collaboratively with lawyers in the various jurisdictions to protect you and your family’s legal rights and remedies.
