Murfreesboro, TN Personal Injury Lawyer

People should not be allowed to hurt you and get away with it, even if the harm caused was not a criminal offense. When something like this happens, a personal injury lawyer can help you get justice.

A personal injury involves some harm or damage to your physical person (i.e., your body). A lawyer can help you explore multiple legal options to help you get compensation for your damages. For some, a lawsuit might be the best option for getting their damages covered. A settlement agreement or even an insurance claim might be best for others. In any case, you should go over the damages available in your case with an experienced lawyer. Medical bills related to your injuries may be very expensive, and you should not have to face that burden alone.

After you are injured, the person responsible for the harm should be held accountable and made to pay. Our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury lawyers can help you make that happen. For a free case assessment, call Howe Law at (844) 876-4357.

How to Tell if You Have a Personal Injury in Murfreesboro, TN

It is sometimes hard to tell whether you have experienced a personal injury. In many cases, the harm is accidental, and it can be easy to dismiss the injury as “just an accident.” Consider the degree of harm and how the accident happened. If the accident resulted from someone else’s negligent behavior, and if you feel the harm is severe, you should consider speaking to our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury lawyers.

Common personal injury accidents include car crashes, slip and falls, construction accidents, and pedestrian accidents. In each of these cases, the person who caused your accident likely owed you a duty of care and safety. The accident might have occurred because this person violated their duty. If you know someone else caused your accident, but you are unsure whether you have a potential lawsuit, our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury attorneys can offer guidance on the matter.

Exploring Legal Options with a Murfreesboro, TN Personal Injury Lawyer

After enduring a personal injury, you can talk to a lawyer about what you should do next. While a personal injury lawsuit is one possibility, it is not always ideal for everyone. Our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury attorneys can help you look into other legal options, like settlements or insurance claims, to get you compensation.

File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Many successful plaintiffs have had all their economic damages covered in addition to non-economic damages, like pain and suffering. Personal injury lawsuits are sometimes time-consuming and emotionally tiring, but they are often worth the effort in the end.

Our team can help you draft a formal complaint to file with the appropriate court to get your lawsuit started. Your complaint should contain specific details about your accident, why you believe the defendant should be held liable, and what damages you want to be covered.

To support the allegations in your complaint, we will need some evidence to support your claims. However, we do not have to present all our evidence or even enough evidence to win the case. We need just enough evidence to convince the court that the matter should be heard before a judge.

Negotiate a Settlement Agreement

A settlement agreement is a deal between the plaintiff and defendant where the defendant agrees to cover some of the plaintiff’s damages, and the plaintiff agrees to drop the lawsuit and relinquish their right to file it again.

Usually, defendants agree to settlements because they cover some but not all of your damages. Plaintiffs often want settlements because it gets at least some of their damages covered quickly, and they do not have to go through a grueling trial.

Our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury attorneys can help you get the best settlement agreement possible with hopefully most of your damages covered. Remember, a good settlement offer should cover most if not all of your economic damages. If a settlement would leave you with debts you cannot repay, you might want to rethink your legal options.

File an Insurance Claim

In some personal injury cases, insurance companies get involved. For example, car accident cases tend to go through the insurance claims process before injured victims pursue lawsuits. When it comes to car insurance, Tennessee is a fault-based state. You must file a third-party claim with the defendant’s auto insurance and convince the insurance company of the defendant’s liability. In other words, you must prove they were at fault.

Our Murfreesboro, TN personal injury attorneys can help you file your claim and communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. When an injured accident victim has a lawyer by their side, insurance companies tend to be a bit more cooperative.

Insurance might play a role in other kinds of personal injuries too. If the other party is uninsured or insurance denies your claim, we can proceed to Plan B, which is usually a lawsuit. In some cases, the threat of a lawsuit might put some much-needed pressure on insurance companies to reach more agreeable settlements, and you may get your compensation faster.

Recoverable Damages in Murfreesboro, TN Personal Injury Cases

Your damages include all the expenses you incurred because of your injuries. Damages are often economic in nature and represent real money you lost because of your accident. However, some damages are non-economic, related to injuries felt by plaintiffs, but did not come with a financial cost. Even so, these damages can be financially compensated by the court.

Economic damages may include expenses for medical bills, lost or damaged property, and lost income from missing work. Future expenses can also be claimed if you expect additional expenses down the road, like more medical treatments or additional lost income because you still cannot return to work.

Non-economic damages relate to the physical and emotional trauma of your accident. Physical and mental pain and suffering are commonly claimed as non-economic damages, but other damages like humiliation or damage to your reputation can also be claimed. The value of these damages may be determined by how they affect you on a day-to-day basis.

“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.
