Car accidents are often caused by drunk driving, distracted driving, or other kinds of negligent actions. Occasionally, car accidents are also caused by defective products; in such cases, the injured victims can seek compensation under the theory of product liability. In either of those situations, the people who are injured may receive compensation for their medical costs (both past and future), pain and suffering, lost wages, related property damage (such as a damaged car), and more. Families who lost a loved one as a result of a car accident can seek relief as well, through a “wrongful death” claim.
Even if you, the injured person, were partly at fault for causing the accident, in Tennessee you may still recover compensation for the other party’s percentage of fault. However, according to Tennessee law, if a victim is found to be more than 50% at fault, he or she will be barred from receiving any compensation. Thus, in every car accident case, the defendant and the insurance companies involved have every interest to try to prove that the injured person had been negligent. As the injured party, you would benefit from the services of an experienced and dedicated Tennessee personal injury attorney who will thoroughly investigate your claim and negotiate and argue effectively on your behalf.
There are many things that you can do to help your case, as well, including writing down your recollections about the circumstances that preceded the accident, the accident scene (including the road conditions), the cars involved, and any people who may have witnessed the accident. You should also get a prompt and thorough medical evaluation, and keep copies of any medical bills related to the accident. And, while you should discuss your case with your own insurance company’s representative, you should not give any statements to other insurance adjusters until you’ve consulted a Tennessee car accident attorney.
Over more than two decades in practice, attorney Mark Hartsoe has built a reputation for outstanding results in a wide variety of Tennessee car accident cases.
