My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of Tennesssee.
Here is the jist of the casee: car A is insured, car B is insured, but car C is uninsured and car C is cited with following too closely, financial responsibility since there was no insurance on car C.
Statute of Limitations in TN is 1 year for personal injury
State of Tennessee Financial Responsibility laws seem pretty clear on repayment of the damages. But my question is, in Tennessee car A&B's insurance company notifies the Tennessee Department of Safety showing car C had no insurance. So now comes the tricky part the Department of Safety wants car C to send in monies for all property and medical damages. My problem is what about the lawsuits to come after the year statute? If the person pays for the medicals now then they would more than likely be found guilty by jury in a civil suit. Right? I do understand the party had no insurance but what about the right to a trial and their rights?
