Our Nashville Attorneys Serve the Following Areas

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Our lawyers have decades of combined experience and have recovered over $1 BILLION on behalf of our clients. Because of that experience, we can say for certain that there’s no way we can tell you right now how much your case is worth. Instead, we will need to review all of the details of your case during a free consultation to give a reasonable estimate of how much compensation you may be owed. Compensation, or damages, is typically broken down into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages relate to the real money you lost because of the injury. This may include medical and rehabilitation bills, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and more. Noneconomic damages cover the less tangible losses you suffered. They are not related to money, so they can be more difficult to prove.

Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, and more. In rare instances, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the wrongdoer. In order for punitive damages to be awarded in Tennessee, you must prove that the wrongdoer “acted maliciously, intentionally, fraudulently or recklessly.”

“I was stopped in traffic and got rear-ended at unbelievable force by an 18wheeler. I went through about 9 months of pain that at times was unbearable. Justin Crouch from Steinger, Greene & Feiner was able to get me into the doctor where I had extensive physical therapy, Injections done, and back surgery. I still have issues driving the interstate and gained weight from being depressed but now I’m slowly losing the weight and getting my life back. Soon I’ll be able to put this all in the past. I would recommend them to anyone that needs an attorney that will take care of all your needs.”

    My case was transferred from another firm and Rivers was assigned to take over. I was extremely pleased with her responsiveness, timely updates, availability and overall professional demeanor.

    Everything was good until the settlement. Signed the paperwork to settle my case. They held $500 after I asked them not to hold it. Supposed to be until the state verifies I do not owe them money for medical expenses. I know I do not owe … More my state and they did it anyway. They have held my money for over 6 months. They have not returned any calls since the settlement. When going to the office the attorney is “ not in”. Seems like they are “holding” just to get paid a little extra off that interest. Pick another lawyer as it seems I now have to do, to get the rest of my settlement.After leaving this review the local office Sydney called me less than 24 hours later. Stated they had some turnover in the office she let me know she was sorry I had been overlooked and sent remainder of funds.

Nashville Personal Injury FAQs

Filing an injury claim with the help of a personal injury lawyer is different than filing a regular insurance claim for a number of advantageous reasons.

First, filing a claim through the typical insurance process first can force you to declare the dollar amount of your damages before all the facts of your accident are known. You should wait for a full diagnosis of your medical condition by a qualified doctor. You should also wait until you can accurately project the full future costs of your injury, including rehabilitation, prescriptions, durable medical equipment, and all out-of-pocket costs. An attorney can help you compile all of these expenses and request compensation for them in a demand letter sent to the appropriate party.

Second, your attorney can help you investigate the accident. Some accidents may involve multiple possible at-fault parties. An insurer may also make you feel like you have to claim partial fault, reducing your damages. Your attorney will fully investigate who was at fault, defend against allegations that you were at fault, and potentially file multiple claims in order to give your case the best chances of success.

Third, your attorney can help you escalate your insurance policy claim into a lawsuit if the insurer refuses to offer a reasonable settlement. Arguing your case in court is sometimes the only way to get a full, fair settlement for your accident losses.

You can still claim damages after your accident even if you were partially at fault in most states. In Tennessee, you are still allowed to file a personal injury claim after a car accident so long as you were 49% or less at fault. If you are found 50% or more at fault, however, you will be unable to legally file a complaint (lawsuit).

The amount of your final damages award or settlement will be reduced by your approximate percentage of fault. If, for example, an insurer wants to argue that you were 25% at-fault for causing a wreck, you will only receive 75% of the compensation needed to totally repay your losses. In this example, a claim for a $10,000 hospital bill will result in a maximum of $7,500 for a settlement or court award.

Know that the only way to prove fault is for a court to find you or someone else at fault through a verdict. In other words, if an insurer wants to argue that you are at fault based on the accident police report or witness statements, you have the right to defend against that allegation with the help of a car accident lawyer in Nashville.

Overall, there is a low likelihood that you will have to appear in court or attend any in-person events unless your personal injury case progresses to a jury trial.

There is no rule that you have to appear in court simply because you take legal action to claim damages after a car accident in Nashville. The vast majority of car accident claims are settled out of court, in fact, through contact between insurers and the accident victims’ legal representatives.

If your case advances to a legal complaint (lawsuit), it can still be handled through mediation, arbitration, or negotiation of an out-of-court settlement. Only in rare instances does a personal injury lawsuit need to advance to a jury trial.
Personal injury cases that do go to trial will require you as the victim to make multiple appearances. You are acting as both the plaintiff and a material witness to your claim. You will likely be interviewed in depositions and will probably have to testify at least once. You may also want to attend the trial at the lawyer’s suggestion in case you are called as a witness by the defendant. Note that juries often tend to be more sympathetic to plaintiffs who make regular court appearances, as well.

Your attorney will work with you, the defendant, the judge, and the clerk of the court to make sure your trial dates are as convenient as possible. They will also guide you through the process of the trial to minimize your stress and pressure. They will also do everything they can to reach a reasonable settlement agreement that can preempt the time and expense of going to court.
