Dealing with insurance companies can be exhausting and complicated. While you likely have a duty to cooperate with your own insurance company, you have no duty to speak or cooperate with the other side's insurance company. With over 30 years of combined experience representing both plaintiffs and insurance companies, we can guide you through the process.
In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for auto accident cases is one year from the date of accident. This means that any lawsuit must be filed by that date. It's important that you secure legal representation quickly after an accident to ensure you preserve your claim and take all steps necessary to protect your rights to seek legal redress for your injuries.
In Tennessee, if a jury finds that you bear some amount of blame for the accident, "comparative negligence" rules will be applied to reduce the damages you receive for your injuries. For example, if you are found 20% at fault for the accident, and the jury awards $100,000 in damages, that award will be reduced to $80,000.
Also, under Tennessee's rules, if you are found to be 50 percent at fault or greater for the accident, you cannot recover anything for your damages. We thoroughly investigate the facts of each accident and provide you with an honest assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your case, including any comparative fault on your behalf.
Car wrecks can result from a variety of circumstances: a reckless driver, a poorly designed roadway or negligently placed signs, even faulty car parts or defective tires. We thoroughly investigate every auto accident case to determine the cause of the accident and the extent of the injuries. Armed with clear evidence, we are better able to negotiate with the insurance company or try your case in court.
The trucking industry operates under federal law. This brings additional complexity to the process of investigating a trucking accident case.

We understand federal trucking laws and commercial driver regulations, and we can ensure that your case is handled according to these laws.
It is a common misperception that motorcyclists get hurt because they have been reckless. In the vast majority of cases, motorcycle wrecks are caused by car and truck drivers who simply were not paying attention. It is the motorcyclist who pays the price for that negligence. If you have suffered serious injuries after being struck by a car or truck in a Tennessee motorcycle crash, we can help.
