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.

The Peroulas family and I deeply appreciate your help and expertise. Although I am certain that it would have been most enjoyable to work with you on the trial, my clients are happy with what they and I believe to be a very favorable settlement, thanks in large part to your guidance.

We appreciate the great job that you did on our case. You watched out for our interest even before you took our case. Mark Hartsoe did a wonderful job. He showed great expertise as he went up against a multi-national corporation with multiple lawyers. He had a thorough understanding of the many details and events that occurred. We were especially impressed with his skill during mediation. Mark’s PowerPoint presentation was excellent, overwhelming the opposition. It was refreshing to work with someone who does what he says he will and truly had our best interest in mind. Thank you for everything. Dennis and Julie Greene

We would very much appreciate it if you would be so kind as to e-mail to our office the Powerpoint presentation that you made at the commencement of the mediation. Our General Manger was very impressed and would like to show it to the CEO and may in turn show it to other corporate personnel as an example of what can happen to the same or similar case when placed in the hands of an excellent lawyer such as Mark Hartsoe.
