Murfreesboro, TN Car Accident Lawyer

With the amount of time most people spend behind the wheel of a car, it is no wonder that car accidents are common occurrences. Many drivers are severely injured in accidents and need help paying for their considerable damages.

Car accidents are often caused by negligent drivers who fail to signal, are distracted, or are even intoxicated. If such a driver injured you, you can claim certain economic and non-economic damages in a lawsuit. If a lawsuit does not work for your case, our team can help you negotiate a settlement or file an insurance claim to get compensation. A lawyer can help you in a variety of ways after a car accident. Of course, your lawyer can help you file a lawsuit, but they may also help you work out a settlement or cut through the red tape that notoriously plagues insurance claims.

If you were injured in a car crash, you should speak to an experienced attorney about how to get compensation. Our Murfreesboro, TN car accident lawyers can assist you with your legal needs. For a free case evaluation, call Howe Law at (844) 876-4357.

Typical Causes of Car Accidents in Murfreesboro, TN

Car accidents can be unpredictable, and they often happen when drivers least expect them. Many injured drivers cannot remember how their accidents occurred because they tend to happen so quickly. However, all drivers should be aware of some common causes of car accidents. Our Murfreesboro, TN car accident lawyers can help you understand how your accident happened and why the other driver should be held liable.

Inattentive driving is one of the leading causes of car crashes in Tennessee and the entire country. Simply glancing down at a cell phone, adjusting the radio, or glancing away from the road for any reason may be inattentive driving. All it takes is one second for a distracted driver to cause a collision.

Failing to signal is also a significant cause of car collisions. If the other driver in your case struck you because they failed to stop at a red light or stop sign, yield before turning, or obey any other traffic control signals, they might be liable for your damages.

Driving under the influence is unfortunate and happens more often than many realize. Alcohol or controlled substances may dull a driver’s reflexes, interfere with their vision, and inhibit their judgment behind the wheel. If you suspect the other driver in your case was intoxicated during the accident, you should contact an attorney and the police immediately.

Damages You Can Recover After a Car Accident in Murfreesboro, TN

The main focus of your case is your claim for damages. Damages is a legal term that encompasses your expenses and injuries related to your accident. Physical injuries, financial losses, emotional trauma, and more may be claimed as part of your damages. Our Murfreesboro, TN car accident attorneys can help you calculate your damages without overlooking any expenses, thus maximizing your potential compensation.

Medical bills are a significant source of damages after a car accident. Even a single visit to the emergency room after a crash can leave injured drivers thousands of dollars in debt. For people with severe injuries, medical treatment might be ongoing, and they can expect future medical expenses that should also be factored into their damages calculations.

You should also claim the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle after a collision. Cars are very expensive, and we rely on them to go to work, school, run errands, and more. Replacing a totaled vehicle is simply impossible for some, and the cost must be included in your damages.

After car accidents, injured drivers may need to spend time at home or in the hospital recovering from injuries. This usually means missing work and losing income. Any wages you miss out on because of your accident can be added to your damages. If you cannot return to work for some time, future lost income should also be included.

Mental and physical pain and suffering are often felt by plaintiffs but seldom seen by others. These non-economic damages do not usually come at a monetary cost, but the court may offer relief in the form of financial compensation. Determining the value of these damages requires us to assess how they affect and hinder your daily life.

Getting Compensation for a Car Accident Without a Lawsuit in Murfreesboro, TN

While a lawsuit may help you get the most compensation possible to cover your damages, not every plaintiff wants to file a lawsuit. There may be other legal options that can help you get compensation without enduring a trial. Our Murfreesboro, TN car accident lawyers can help you decide what course of action is right for you and meets your needs.

A settlement agreement may happen after we file a lawsuit but before we get to the actual trial, or it might happen before we even have the chance to file a complaint. In a settlement, the defendant agrees to pay for some of your damages, and you would agree to drop the lawsuit or forego filing. While settlements can get plaintiffs compensation faster, the compensation is typically less than what might be awarded at a trial. Our lawyers can help you negotiate the best settlement possible.

Car accidents and insurance claims seem to go hand-in-hand. Tennessee is a fault-based state when it comes to auto insurance, and you must file third-party claims against the other driver’s insurance to get compensation. Unfortunately, this also means proving the other driver is at fault. Insurance companies do not like to pay out claims and may try numerous tactics to avoid paying. Our Murfreesboro, TN car accident attorneys have experience with insurance companies and can help you navigate the claims process.

“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.
