Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in TN?

The state of Tennessee gives certain family members a higher priority than others when seeking compensation. The spouse has the first right to pursue a lawsuit.

If there is no surviving spouse, the children can pursue the claim, or a guardian may do so on their behalf if the children are under the age of 18. When there is no will, the administrator of the estate may pursue legal action.

At Gritton & Gritton, we understand the emotional stress of dealing with a lawsuit while still grieving a loved one. Our attorneys offer more than half a century of combined experience advocating on behalf of surviving family members.

Damages in a wrongful death case may include:

  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Mental anguish

Does Tennessee Have a Cap on Punitive Damages?

In addition to these damages, the family of the deceased may be awarded punitive damages when intentional misconduct or reckless behavior caused the death. Tennessee allows punitive damages as a punishment and a deterrent.

The state has set a cap of $500,000 or twice the compensatory damages. Let our experienced personal injury lawyers advise you of the compensation that may be available in your situation.
