Did someone else’s negligence cause you harm? Are you considering a lawsuit? You’re not alone. Many people in Chattanooga file lawsuits every day, hoping to receive compensation for their injuries.

With its lawsuit loan program, High Rise can offer you an advance payment that will allow you to use your money long before your case is settled.
Act fast if you want your day in court
Filing a lawsuit in Tennessee civil courts is a big step. But, if you’ve been hurt in Chattanooga, time is not on your side. Consider visiting with a qualified personal injury attorney now. It is crucial to understand and comply with the state’s deadline for bringing civil lawsuits. The statute of limitations in Tennessee is only one year. That’s one of the shortest limitation periods in the country! The deadline applies to cases caused by negligence, which includes most car accidents and “slip and fall” matters. It also applies to intentional acts like assault or libel (slander is just six months).
What if you don’t file in time?
If you miss this critical deadline, you may just be out of luck. When you file your lawsuit after the one-year statute has passed, the defendant will likely ask the court to dismiss the case, and the judge will comply unless you meet a recognized exception. The exceptions are very narrow: if the plaintiff is under 18 or found incompetent; if the defendant leaves the state; if the defendant also has criminal charges filed. These exceptions will not necessarily prevent you from ever filing a lawsuit, but they can significantly delay it.
