Bartlett, TN asked in Consumer Law and Insurance Bad Faith for Tennessee

Q: What’s the statute of limitations for Directv installation property damage claims in TN?

I’m experiencing a leaking roof & interior property damage by Directv from a 2nd installed dish that occurred in 2021. The original dish was installed in 2006. The repairman in 2021 removed the old dish but left the old mounting brackets in the roof and installed a dish with mounting brackets across from the original dish and brackets; therefore, the repairman did not seal the roof when he removed the old dish and left the brackets which was loose and causing water damage to my home. The Sedgwick/Directv Insurance Claims Adjuster is telling me they’re not responsible because this outside of the statute of limitations for the original install which was 2006. She claims the first install was not done correctly and the second install was done correctly. We did not have any issues until that second install in 2021. Please help me. Thanks

A: Property Torts have a 3 year SOL. But they are already claiming you busted it. When you sue expect to fight a Rule 56 Motion on the SOL. Be prepared to prove the 2021 work is what did the damage.
