Nashville Car Accident Lawyer

As Nashville continues to grow, the city’s roads become more congested.  This congestion can lead to aggressive and impatient drivers.  Drivers in Nashville are expected to obey driving laws and exercise reasonable care when operating their vehicle.  Still, numerous car accidents occur each day because of drivers’ careless and reckless acts.

If you were injured in a car accident caused by another driver, you may be entitled to compensation in a car accident lawsuit.  There are several categories of damages that may be available to you.  However, the legal process for recovering compensation can be long and complicated.  Our Nashville car accident lawyers can offer guidance and support on the path to recovery.

If you have been injured because of another driver’s negligence, our Nashville car accident lawyers can help you recover the compensation you deserve.  Contact us today by calling Howe Law at (844) 876-4357 for a free case review.

Damages Available in a Nashville Car Accident Lawsuit

Any damages recovered by a plaintiff in a Nashville car accident case must have been caused by a defendant’s negligence.  There are several types of damages that may be awarded.  The damages awarded will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries.  You may recover financial compensation for the following categories of damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Property damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

Our Nashville car accident lawyers can help determine which damages may be available to you after suffering a car accident caused by a negligent driver.

What to Do After a Car Accident in Nashville

Tennessee is an at-fault state.  This means that car accident victims in Nashville may recover damages from an at-fault driver’s insurance company.  Other drivers’ insurance companies may look for any way to refute your claim.  Accordingly, there are certain steps you can take in the aftermath of a crash that may protect your interests in a car accident lawsuit.

Remain at the Scene

It is important not to flee the scene of an accident.  Leaving the scene could inhibit your ability to recover damages related to an accident.  Furthermore, people who flee the scene of a crash may be charged with a hit and run.  You should find a safe place to wait near the scene where you are not at risk of being struck by another vehicle.  You should also avoid trying to direct traffic after an accident.

Call 911

The next step after an accident is to call 911.  Even if you think another driver may be calling the authorities, you should contact them yourself.  An ambulance may be sent for any victims who require emergency medical attention.  Additionally, a police officer should visit the scene of an accident to draft an official crash report.  A police officer’s report of the crash may help our Nashville car accident lawyers when proving another driver was at fault.

Exchange Information

You should always exchange information with other parties to a car accident.  This will include other drivers’ contact information such as names, addresses, and phone numbers.  Further, you should collect other drivers’ license plate number and insurance information.  This information will be highly beneficial when building your case.

When exchanging information with other drivers, avoid apologizing or admitting fault.  Apologizing is a natural reaction to a car accident.  However, insurance companies may try and construe some apologetic statements as admissions of fault.

You should also exchange contact information with any witnesses to an accident.  Witness testimony can be valuable to our Nashville car accident lawyers when trying to prove your claim.

Document the Accident Scene

It may benefit you to record photo and video documentation of the accident scene.  Photos may be used to prove conditions surrounding an accident.  For instance, an at-fault driver may try to blame poor weather or road conditions for an accident as opposed to their own carelessness.  In such scenarios, documentation of the accident scene may be used to prove the weather and road conditions were not the cause of an accident.

Furthermore, photos may be used to establish property damage related to an accident.  A defendant may try to refute that certain property damage was caused by an accident.  Again, photo documentation from the accident scene may be used to refute their claim.  You may call our Nashville car accident lawyers in the aftermath of a crash for help determining what to photograph.

Lastly, your personal recollection of an accident may benefit your claim.  Important details surrounding a crash may be forgotten.  Therefore, you should write down your own recollection of the crash while the details are still fresh in your memory.

Seek Medical Treatment

Victims of a crash who require immediate medical treatment should be attended to by emergency services after a crash.  If emergency care is not administered or required, injured parties should still seek medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident.  Medical documentation of your injuries is required in order to recover damages caused by those injuries.  Insurance companies may refer doctors who will minimize the extent of your injuries.  Our Nashville car accident lawyers can help refer you to doctors who will administer proper treatment.

Furthermore, accident victims should be medically assessed even if they are not in pain.  Many injuries may not manifest themselves until weeks after an injury.

Contact Our Nashville Car Accident Lawyers

The next step after an accident is to call our Nashville car accident lawyers so we may begin building your claim.  Our lawyers can help recover compensation from an at-fault driver’s insurance company.

Furthermore, you should notify your own insurance company of a crash.  If you were involved in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist, you may be able to recover compensation against your own uninsured motorist policy.  However, waiting to report a crash could cause you to miss out on compensation.

“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.
