Whether negotiating with insurance companies or holding negligent parties responsible, we help clients in Tennessee get the support they deserve after a motor vehicle accident.
Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents
You have questions, we have answers. Securing compensation after a car accident may not be as easy as it sounds, which is why it’s always best to go with an attorney. Below are just some of the questions we receive from auto accident victims.
Am I Only Eligible For The Cost Of Car Repairs And Medical Expenses?
While these might be your biggest concerns, you could be eligible for reimbursement for much more. This could include:
- Lost wages due to your injuries
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of property in your vehicle when the accident occurred
A car accident has the potential to have long-lasting financial, medical and emotional impact on your life, and the compensation you receive should reflect that impact.
What Should I Do After An Accident?
First, call 911 and remain at the scene of the accident until help arrives. The police will document the scene of the accident and the contact information for both you and the other person involved, but you should take your own photographs and record the contact information of the police officers, witnesses at the scene and the other driver. Do not admit fault.
After the accident, be sure to contact your insurance company to inform them of the accident. You might also want to reach out to an attorney. Not only can an attorney help you seek compensation, they can also ensure that the accident’s full impact on your life is considered.
If I’ve Been In An Accident, Do I Really Need A Lawyer?
It depends. If you were not injured, you might be able to get the help you need from an insurance claim directly. If injuries are involved, though, things get more complex. While you can deal with your insurance company on you own, working with an attorney is one of the best ways to create the positive results.
