Nashville Personal Injury Lawyers

It can be difficult for personal injury victims to endure the aftermath of an accident. Physical pain, emotional distress, and financial hardships may all result from personal injuries. The road to recovery can be long and burdensome.

Fortunately, you may recover compensation if you suffered an injury because of another person’s careless or reckless behavior. Parties can be held liable for damages caused be their negligent acts. There are multiple types of damages available to personal injury plaintiffs. However, the process for recovering compensation can be complex. Victims can contact our Nashville personal injury lawyers for guidance and support.

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

Comparative Negligence in Nashville Personal Injury Cases

A defendant must have caused or contributed to the damages suffered for a personal injury claim to succeed. In Nashville, the courts use a modified comparative negligence system when determining fault. This means that a judge or jury will assign a percentage of fault for each party involved and then award damages based on that percentage.

However, Nashville courts also implement what is referred to as the 50% rule. Plaintiffs in Nashville personal injury cases will only be allowed to recover compensation if they are less than 50% at fault for their injuries. If a plaintiff is considered to be at least 50% responsible for an accident, they will be unable to recover damages related to that accident.

Damages Available in Nashville Personal Injury Cases

There is a wide array of serious injuries that may result from personal injury accidents. Accordingly, there are several categories of damages available in Nashville personal injury cases. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers can help victims determine which of the following types of damages may be available in their case:

Medical Expenses

First, personal injury plaintiffs in Nashville may be compensated for the cost of any medical expenses related to an accident. There are numerous physical and mental injuries that may result from a personal injury. Accordingly, you may recover damages for the cost of medical treatment for injuries caused by another person’s negligence. These damages are typically established through medical reports and bills.

Lost Income

Often times, personal injury victims will be forced to miss work while they recover. Therefore, personal injury plaintiffs may be compensated for lost wages incurred because of an accident.

Furthermore, injured parties may recover for the loss of income they expect to lose in the future because of a personal injury. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers can help gather evidence to establish the loss of future earning capacity.

Property Damages

Some victims of personal injuries may experience property damages because of an accident. For example, car accident victims may incur vehicle damages because of a negligent motorist. In such cases, the at-fault driver will be liable for the cost of repairing or replacing your damaged car.

Pain and Suffering

Physical pain and emotional suffering can be difficult to prove after an accident. However, the effects on victims can be catastrophic. Several complicated factors may be considered when attempting to quantify the cost of pain and suffering. Therefore, the assistance of our experienced Nashville personal injury lawyers can be highly advantageous when pursuing damages for pain and suffering in your case.

Loss of Companionship

In some cases, personal injury victims are unable to provide their partners with love, affection, and companionship after an accident. Accordingly, personal injury plaintiffs may also recover damages for the loss of companionship incurred because of an accident.

Punitive Damages

In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded. Punitive damages seek to punish defendants and discourage similar behavior. However, punitive damages will only be awarded if convincing evidence shows that a defendant acted maliciously, fraudulently, or recklessly when causing an accident. If you were injured because of another person’s especially negligent behavior, our Nashville personal injury lawyers can help determine if punitive damages may be available in your case.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Nashville

Personal injury cases can come in many forms. The legal analysis that applies to your claim will depend on the circumstances surrounding the case. Accordingly, the assistance of experienced attorneys can be very useful when pursuing a claim. The following are types of personal injury cases frequently handled by our Nashville personal injury lawyers:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents

If you suffered an injury because of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Dealing with Insurance Companies in Nashville Personal Injury Cases

If you wish to file a personal injury lawsuit in Nashville, you should prepare for a dispute with the defendant’s insurance company. Insurance companies will often try to entice low settlement agreements in the days following an accident. It is important to avoid communicating with other parties’ insurance companies until after you have had our experienced Nashville personal injury lawyers explain the legal options available to you.

Furthermore, insurance companies may hire defense attorneys, doctors, and private investigators who try to decrease the value of your case. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers can help refer proper treatment and fight the insurance companies on your behalf.

Lawyer’s Fees in Nashville Personal Injury Cases

Many personal injury victims may question if they can afford an attorney after an accident. Fortunately, personal injury attorneys in Nashville are permitted to work on a contingency fee pay structure. This means that you may pay your attorney’s fees with a portion of the damages awarded in your case. In other words, under a contingency fee pay structure, our Nashville personal injury lawyers will only charge a fee if we win 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.
