Please look at some of the most frequently asked personal auto injury questions below. Feel free to contact us with any doubts whatsoever.
Should You Take an Offer From Insurance Companies?
Do not let an insurance adjuster to tell you what your injuries are worth. You deserve every dollar you are entitled to for your pain and suffering, and insurers are not likely to offer it all up front. We will help you fight for your rights.
How Do You Pay for Injury Lawyers?
Our team works on a contingency-fee basis. We do not get paid unless you do.
How Soon Can You Expect Compensation?
Every case is different, but most resolve quickly. We are always on call to answer questions or address concerns during the duration of your case.
Which Injuries Qualify for a Case?
Injuries after a vehicle accident range in severity. However, with the costs of medical care these days, almost any injury could be expensive enough to warrant legal action. Here are some examples:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI), such as concussions, contusions, and diffuse axonal injuries
- Broken bones
- Cuts and scrapes
- Spinal cord damage
Who Pays for Damages?
In Tennessee, you can receive compensation if a court finds you 49 percent or less responsible for your injuries. You would show your lack of fault by determining the way other parties or conditions contributed to the accident, such as:
- Distracted drivers
- Reckless drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Wet roads
- Manufacturing defects
How Much Time Do You Have To File a Suit?
In the state of Tennessee, an injured victim has exactly one year to file a lawsuit for damages. Chances of receiving compensation are little to none for cases filed after this time has elapsed. It is important to speak with an attorney immediately after the accident to avoid missing deadlines — and to gather as much evidence as possible.
How a Lawyer Can Defend Your Rights
Insurance companies might start politely, but many turn to threats and bullying if you do not accept their lowball initial offers. We can help.
We know how to fight back against manipulative negotiators. We will put an end to non-payment tactics and other insurance schemes in order to get you the full compensation you deserve for your injuries, fast.
We can also get you the facts. Insurance companies will encourage or bully you into signing off on their offers, often by telling you that you will not get a penny when your case goes to court. They are not under any obligation to further your interests or tell you the truth. When you hire us, we are under those obligations. Call us today to cut through the double-talk and start the process of getting what you deserve.
