Nashville Car Accident Lawyers
Do you need legal assistance after being injured in a car accident?
Tennessee Traffic Crash Data Reports show that thousands of car accidents occur on Nashville roadways every year. Some result in serious injuries that could have been prevented. Oftentimes, victims are left facing painful injuries that require extensive medical treatment and a lengthy recovery process.
If you or a loved one were involved in an auto accident caused by the negligent actions of another driver, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses.
“If you were injured in a traffic accident involving someone who was using a cell phone while driving, you may have a strong case against that person even if he or she was technically complying with the “texting and driving” law (T.C.A. 55-8-199). That’s because civil lawsuits consider whether the defendant was “negligent,” not just whether the person was obeying the law.” –Ben Raybin

Sometime drivers aren’t sure who is at fault in car wreck. For example, if you were hit by another car in one of our Nashville ice storms, is that driver responsible? David Weissman writes,
“In Tennessee, a driver is required to exercise due care. (T.C.A. 55-8-136). This means you are required to operate your car with the proper care and caution as is required under the existing circumstances and conditions so as to protect the safety of his or her self and others properly on the roadway.”
We focus on compensation for your injuries so you can focus on recovery
In most car accident cases, the first challenge we address is establishing liability against the defendant motorist. We then explore what portion of the negligent driver’s insurance can be recovered on your behalf. If the severity of your injuries, economic losses and future treatment needs exhaust the insurance of the other driver, our attorneys work to identify and pursue additional sources of compensation for you.
Along with providing expert legal guidance, our attentive staff works to make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process. We take the time to carefully explain your case and your options for recovering compensation, and we make ourselves available to answer all your questions along the way.
We understand how important your case is to you. That’s why we’re committed to devoting the personal time and attention needed to deliver you results. We make sure you receive the quality legal representation you need to get the compensation you deserve.
