Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Raybin & Weissman, P.C., has been helping the people of Middle Tennessee resolve legal issues since 1976. Our clients (and prospective clients) frequently ask us about the process of filing a personal injury lawsuit, as well as the meaning of specific legal terminology.
To help you further familiarize yourself with common terms you’ll hear in a personal injury case, we have assembled the following Personal Injury Glossary of Terms. It includes legal terminology related to the process of filing and pursuing a personal injury lawsuit—terms like Complaint, Answer, Discovery, and Deposition—as well as definitions of legal rules, procedures and doctrines.

As a result, Raybin & Weissman expressly disclaims any and all liability for reliance on the definitions below. If you have any questions about legal or medical terminology or would like a free, no obligation consult with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers call us at 615-256-6666.
