How are damages awarded in Tennessee?
Should your case go to trial, Tennessee awards damages under a “modified comparative fault” rule, meaning that a jury can determine partial fault for the accident. For instance, if you incurred a total of $100,000 in damages, but the jury determined the accident to be 10% your fault, you would be awarded $90,000 – the total damages minus 10%. If your fault is determined to be more than 50%, then you would not be eligible to receive damages. We will work with you to understand your case and ensure that we take the proper approach to seeking damages, so your family receives its just compensation.
