If your life is turned upside down by an accident in which you or someone you love is seriously injured, your main concern is to get medical treatment and begin the recovery process.
It doesn't take long, however, for panic to set in about how to pay the mounting medical bills and replace lost wages. If the accident resulted from someone else's negligence, the financial burden should not fall to you.
In most cases, you can recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages and damages for pain and suffering from the insurance company of the at-fault party. If that person is uninsured or underinsured, you may be able to collect from your own insurance provider.
Insurance companies — even your own — are primarily concerned with protecting their bottom line. That's why it is wise to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who can protect your interests and maximize the amount you recover.
Proven Southern Middle Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyers
The law firm you select to represent you in your personal injury claim can have a significant impact on how much you ultimately recover. Many personal injury law firms in Tennessee accept a tremendous volume of cases. As a result, the lawyers at these firms constantly plow through huge caseloads and work to resolve cases as quickly as possible — even if it's not in their clients' best interests.
Some firms have quietly made a habit of accepting the best offer they can get from the insurance companies they face because they prefer to avoid the unknowns of going to trial.

We Try Personal Injury Cases In State And Federal Courts
In Tennessee, if your civil suit seeks a minimum of $75,000 and involves a person who lives out of state, or if there is diversity or a "federal question," then a personal injury lawsuit can be filed in a Tennessee federal district court.
Federal district court judges generally require tighter schedules and more detailed case management and briefing than state court judges. For this reason, many lawyers avoid personal injury cases that are filed in federal courts. In addition, many Tennessee attorneys believe juries in federal district court cases award larger verdicts than if the case was heard in state court.
It is important to make sure that your Tennessee attorney has extensive experience in federal district courts. Our attorneys are equally comfortable trying cases in state courts or federal district courts and courts of appeals.
