Personal Injury Advisement, Referral, and Trial Representation
Do You Need a Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyer for Serious Injury or Wrongful Death?
Our law firm is committed to helping victims in Nashville, Memphis, and throughout Tennessee to protect their legal rights after being injured in preventable accidents or unlawful behavior.
If you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of negligence, then you have the right to pursue financial compensation. This means that if someone was negligent and failed to uphold their legal duty – such as text messaging when they should be paying attention to the road – they can be held liable for injuries and losses victims suffer as a result.
How Is Personal Injury Compensation Calculated?
In most cases, a person reserves the right to pursue monetary compensation if he or she is harmed in an injurious accident. If the injuries were caused as a direct result of another person’s negligent, reckless, or careless actions, the at-fault individual can be held responsible for the damages.
Determining the value of a personal injury case depends on many factors that include the extent of your injuries and losses, the circumstances surrounding your accident, insurance coverage limits, and more.
Examples of compensation that you can recover in an injury claim include:
- Medical bills and costs of future medical care: This can include any expenses a victim may face in order to obtain medical attention for surgical procedures, hospitalizations, ongoing treatment, medication, travel cost to/from appointments, and more. It is crucial for an accident victim to keep an accurate record of the expenses incurred as a result of the accident and injuries caused in the accident.
- Lost income from missing work: This can include any expenses a victim may face as a result of not working. If a victim’s injuries are severe enough, he or she may be unable to maintain employment, which can leave the victim facing financial hardship.
- Physical pain and emotional distress: Depending on the severity of the victim’s injuries, he or she may be able to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation for any physical suffering or emotional anguish he or she may have faced due to the accident.
- Exemplary damages (punitive damages): Exemplary damages, commonly referred to as punitive damages, are amongst the toughest to recover in personal injury lawsuits. However, a skilled lawyer can help an accident victim recover exemplary damages, which punish the at-fault person for their negligent, careless, or reckless actions.
An attorney can review the details of your case to help you better understand what your injury case may be worth.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
By working with an experienced Tennessee personal injury attorney, you can gain the support needed to fight back against insurance companies that aim to pay victims as little as possible. Too often, victims who think they can handle claims on their own often go under-compensated, or without compensation at all, because insurance companies do everything in their power to avoid paying claims.
