I’ve been in a Car Accident. Do I need an Attorney?
Like most states, Tennessee is gearing up for the holidays. People are eager to get out and shop! However, make sure you’re careful in the upcoming holiday traffic. You should speak with an attorney if you sustain a car accident injury.
3 REASONS YOU NEED A CAR ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEY
There are several benefits to hiring an attorney after a car crash.
YOUR ATTORNEY WILL LOOK AFTER YOUR BEST INTERESTS
The insurance company has one priority: to close your claim as quickly as possible, for as little as possible. Don’t be surprised if you receive lowball offers while at home recovering or even in the hospital. An attorney represents you and only you and will fight for a fair settlement.
THERE IS A TIME LIMIT FOR PURSUING CAR ACCIDENT INJURY LAWSUITS
Under most circumstances, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Tennessee is one year. This will pass by quickly, so you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Your case will be stronger the sooner you collect evidence like photos, videos, and eyewitness accounts.
YOU MUST PROVE THAT THE OTHER DRIVER WAS NEGLIGENT
A driver can make many negligent actions while behind the wheel: driving too fast for weather conditions, ignoring traffic signals, or operating while intoxicated. To win a car accident injury settlement in Tennessee, you must prove that the other driver was at fault — not an easy task without experienced legal representation.
