Knoxville, TN Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury lawsuits seek to compensate those who have been harmed because of another person’s negligence. The process for recovering monetary damages will be similar in most personal injury cases. However, these lawsuits can come in many forms. Different legal analyses may apply depending on the circumstances surrounding a case.

There are several categories of damages available to plaintiffs in Knoxville personal injury cases. However, insurance companies can delay and complicate the legal process by disputing various aspects of a claim. The assistance of our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can be useful when negotiating for the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured because of another person’s negligence, get help from experienced Knoxville personal injury lawyers by calling Howe Law at (844) 876-4357 for a free case review.

How Our Knoxville Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

You are entitled to financial compensation if you were injured because of another person’s negligence. However, the process for recovering compensation can be complicated. Further, personal injury victims may suffer physical pain, emotional distress, and financial hardship in the aftermath of their injury. Therefore, our Knoxville personal injury lawyers are available to provide guidance and support throughout each stage of the legal process. The following are examples of ways our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can help with your case:

Reviewing Your Case

If you suffered an injury because of another person’s careless conduct, you may question whether you have a valid personal injury claim. The following elements must be satisfied for a claim to proceed:

  • The defendant had a duty of care.
  • The defendant breached a duty of care.
  • The plaintiff’s injuries were caused by the defendant’s breach of duty.
  • The plaintiff suffered damages as a result of their injuries.

Plaintiffs should understand the intricacies surrounding each element of a personal injury claim before filing a lawsuit. Accordingly, if you suspect you were injured because of another person’s negligence, you may consult with our Knoxville personal injury lawyers for free to assess the validity of your case. Our experienced attorneys can help determine if you have a valid personal injury claim.

Gathering Evidence

Personal injury claims may require plaintiffs to gather extensive amounts of evidence. The following are examples of evidence that may be used to establish a personal injury claim:

  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony
  • Security footage
  • Computer or phone records
  • Photos and videos of an injury or accident scene

However, there are numerous other pieces of information that may be used to prove your case. The process for gathering evidence can be difficult and tiresome. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can gather evidence and build a case on your behalf.

Filing Your Case

There are multiple requirements that apply to the filing of a personal injury lawsuit. First, plaintiffs in Knoxville have one year from the date of an accident in which they sustained injuries to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, there are certain circumstances where the time limit may be extended.

Furthermore, there are several other requirements that plaintiffs must satisfy when filing a personal injury claim. You must pay any required fees, serve the defendant, file in the correct court, attach supporting documents, and ensure you are filing a valid claim. Failing to meet any of these requirements could affect your ability to recover compensation. Therefore, our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can help ensure you meet the requirements for filing a claim.

Proving Fault

Personal injury claims in Knoxville abide by a modified comparative negligence method that allows plaintiffs to recover for their injuries as long as they were less at fault than the other person. In other words, if you were 50% or more at fault for an accident, you may not recover financial compensation for your injuries. Proving fault can be difficult. Defendants’ companies may use the vast resources at their disposal to try and shift blame. Accordingly, the support of our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can be highly beneficial when fighting insurance companies to prove a defendant was at fault.

Negotiating on Your Behalf

Insurance companies may also hire defense lawyers who will use various tactics to entice low settlement agreements. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can lean on their extensive experience when negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf. Accordingly, our attorneys’ assistance can prove very valuable when negotiating for a fair settlement.

Categories of Damages Available in a Knoxville Personal Injury Lawsuit

There are multiple categories of damages that may be awarded to personal injury plaintiffs in Knoxville. Damages must have been caused by a defendant’s negligence in order to be recovered. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can help prove the following damages in your case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages include medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages incurred because of an injury. Economic damages are often more easily established through evidence such as medical bills, doctor’s prognosis, pay stubs, and other documentation.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages serve to compensate victims for physical pain and emotional anguish suffered because of an injury. Non-economic losses may be more difficult to prove but can have devastating effects on victims. The psychological harm caused by a personal injury can be difficult to bear. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers can help gather evidence to support a claim for non-economic damages in your case.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded. Punitive damages are additional costs the defendant must pay in order to punish his especially negligent or intentional behavior. Furthermore, punitive damages can serve to disincentivize others from repeating similar actions. If you were injured because of another person’s reckless or intentional conduct, you can consult with our Knoxville personal injury lawyers to determine if punitive damages may be available in your case.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

“They made sure that we received all of the medical care...”

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
