Holiday Car Accidents

26 December 2012 Categories: All Blogs, Car Accident, Personal Injury

With the increased holiday traffic and some wintery weather thrown in the mix, we encourage everyone to be careful while driving the rest of the week and this upcoming weekend. We often get a call from out of towners who are involved in car accidents while traveling through Nashville. If you or a family member are involved in a car crash with injuries, you should encourage that person to speak to his or her primary care physician, and then contact a lawyer. Many other states have a two year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. This means that you have up to two years to file a lawsuit against the driver at fault in a car accident. In Tennessee there is only a one year statute. If the accident occured in Tennessee, you are more than likely going to need to file a suit in Tennesssee and it will have to be done within one year. Even if you are still being treated by a doctor, you should go ahead and contact a Tennessee attorney to see if you have a case and start the ball rolling. McNulty & Associates offers free consultations for car accidents and personal injury cases. We hope everyone had a great Christmas, and again, remember to stay safe while traveling this holiday seasason.
