Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyers

Injuries can keep you out of work, hurt your ability to participate in activities you love, and fundamentally alter your life.  If you were hurt because of an accident that someone else caused through carelessness or negligence, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for your economic and noneconomic damages.

Working with a personal injury lawyer is extremely helpful in getting you the damages you deserve.  Insurance companies are often difficult to deal with, and they will work to lower your payout and save themselves money on your settlement.  Having a lawyer at your side collect evidence, negotiate settlements, and even fight the case at trial (if necessary) is a huge help.  This is especially true if your injuries caused substantial disabilities that make it harder to get around and deal with everyday challenges.

For help with your injury case, call Howe Law’s Tennessee personal injury lawyers today for a free case review.  Our phone number is (844) 876-4357.

Getting Compensation After an Accident or Injury in Tennessee

There are many different types of accidents and injuries.  Some specific types of accidents, especially car accidents and workplace accidents, have well-established insurance systems that you might use to get compensation.  However, when to use insurance and when to file a lawsuit is not always clear.  In any case, our Tennessee personal injury lawyers can help you understand what route to take and how to get the compensation you need.

Insurance Claims

Generally speaking, if insurance is available to pay for your injuries, you should start by filing an insurance claim.  With car accidents, you can often file an insurance claim with the other driver’s insurance and get your damages paid.  With workplace injuries, you usually cannot sue your employer unless you meet certain qualifications, and you instead need to file your injury case through the Workers’ Compensation system – but lawsuits against other parties usually are not blocked.

With these and other insurance claims, you should always work with a lawyer.  Your attorney can negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf and work to get a payout that adequately covers your damages.  If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we can file your case in court as a lawsuit.

Lawsuits

Lawsuits are sometimes necessary right out of the gate with uncooperative defendants or defendants who do not have insurance.  In other cases, your personal injury attorney might turn to a lawsuit if the insurance claim is not going well.

In a lawsuit, a judge and jury hear your case instead of a biased insurance adjuster.  If we can prove that the defendant caused your injuries through negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions, then we can recover compensation for all damages we can prove.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Lawyers Handle in Tennessee

There are many different types of personal injury cases, and it can be hard to know what types of cases a lawyer takes.  Out Tennessee personal injury attorneys handle all types of injury cases, including but not limited to any of the following.  Call our law offices for a free case review if you are not sure whether or not you have a case.

Car Accidents

Car crashes are one of the most common ways people get injured in Tennessee and across the country.  While car insurance is readily available, insurance companies often undercut claims and drive down costs to save themselves money instead of paying what you are owed.  A lawyer can help negotiate or fight your case in court to get you the damages you deserve.

Slip and Falls

Slip and fall accidents and cases involving other injuries on someone else’s property (collectively known as “premises liability” cases) are another of the most common types of personal injury cases.  With these cases, our lawyers help victims who were injured because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property.  These cases often involve minor or moderate injuries, but extremely severe, disabling injuries like traumatic brain injuries are surprisingly common in slip and falls as well.

Defective and Dangerous Product Injuries

“Products liability” cases deal with defective and dangerous products that injure unsuspecting customers.  With these claims, we help our clients seek compensation from negligent product manufacturers for unsafe products, manufacturing errors, and inadequate warning labels.  These cases often involve household products and toys but can also involve defective auto parts, medical equipment, medication, and other important products.

Medical Malpractice

Claims against doctors and hospitals for inadequate medical care, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and other medical mistakes can often lead to substantial compensation.  Because these cases often involve highly specialized scientific issues, these cases can be incredibly complex and often require injury lawyers to hire expert witnesses to help prove your case.  Our Tennessee personal injury lawyers are prepared to help with these complex cases.

Workplace Injuries and Construction Accidents

As mentioned, workplace injury cases (including construction accident cases) often have to be filed through Workers’ Compensation since most employees in Tennessee are barred from suing their employer directly.  This system can be essential in helping victims get medical expenses and lost wages paid, but additional damages for things like pain and suffering might only be available in a lawsuit if we can find an exception that will allow you to sue instead.  For example, many workplace injury cases can be filed against a third party, such as the manufacturer of defective equipment.

When to Call a Personal Injury Lawyer in Tennessee

It is never too early in your case to call a personal injury lawyer.  The earlier your Tennessee personal injury lawyers can get involved in your case, the earlier we can begin collecting evidence and filing paperwork with the courts.  If you wait too long, you might run afoul of the statute of limitations, which typically gives you only one year from the date of the accident to file 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.
