Though you have every right to represent yourself throughout the personal injury claims process, you will be at a distinct disadvantage if you do so. Since the person or organization that you will be pursuing your claim against will almost certainly be represented by legal counsel, you will need to anticipate and adjust to the nuances of their legal strategy in order to recover compensation at all. There is probably a lot riding on the outcome of your claim; our Memphis legal team possesses the experience and resources to help you pursue your claim so that you can recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
Generally speaking, you will only have a single year to file a personal injury claim in the state of Tennessee. If you do not file your claim within this period of time, otherwise known as the statute of limitation, you will likely no longer have legal recourse available to you. With this in mind, then, you should begin speaking with a personal injury attorney as soon after the accident as you possibly can.
