My close friend was logging a piece of property owned by a major corporation in TN in August 2011. I was with him, just to be there so he would not be alone. I was not being paid, and the company's employee gave me permission to be there. There wa...
This is a complicated question to answer. In Tennessee, priority for filing a wrongful death claim generally goes to a spouse, or child, or parent, or administrator/executor of an estate. However, there are ways for a person to bring a wrongful death claim if the family members do not wish to. Regardless of who brings the claim, there are strict rules on how money will be disbursed if the claim prevails. You really need to speak with an experienced wrongful/personal injury attorney about this.
In addition, there are lots of other issues that come to mind when reading your post. Who was your friend employed by? Are you sure there is no insurance coverage? If not, is there a company or person responsible that may have assets? Have you sought medical treatment for witnessing the death? There is a possibility that you may have a claim as well.
Bottom line, you need to call and speak with an attorney. Most will meet with you free of charge for the initial consultation. Good luck.See question
My ex took me back to court citing 21 allegations against me. A majority of the allegations she stated were false, 16 of them to be exact.
In addition to defending the allegations in the current lawsuit, if she brought a lawsuit against you based on false allegations and for an improper purpose, you may be able to file a malicious prosecution claim against her if the case against you is dismissed. However, I recommend calling an experienced attorney to fully discuss your situation. You did not provide enough information for your question to be fully answered.See question
The statue of limitations is about to run out to file for wrongful death due to medical malpractice, in my mother's death. How do I word the complaint so it is coorect and how do I file it pro se , so I can have more time to look for an attorney.
Tennessee has procedural hurdles that must be met before a lawsuit can be filed for medical malpractice. These hurdles are very technical and if not done correctly, the lawsuit can be thrown out. The best thing you can do for you and your family is to find a Tennessee medical malpractice attorney to assist you with these issues. Make sure the attorney has experience with medical malpractice cases, because most lawyers will not have a proper understanding of all of the technical requirements for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.See question

Yes. You should consult a lawyer in Memphis. Nationwide does not have your best interest in mind.See question
