Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
If you’ve suffered a personal injury in Nashville, you are well within your legal rights to represent yourself in court to fight for the compensation. But doing so will almost certainly not end well. While you can read different blogs, legal books and other resources, the truth is that you most likely don’t know the nuances of the law and how the court system works. When you hire a Nashville personal injury lawyer, they will use all of their resources, knowledge and experience to make sure you have a strong case for compensation. They may hire medical experts, forensic experts and others to prove you deserve the money you are owed. What’s more, your attorney will use their skills and experience to negotiate on your behalf and/or fight in court for your rights.

How Much Is My Case Worth?
Our lawyers have decades of combined experience. 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 noneconomic. 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.” If punitive damages are awarded, they are limited to either twice the amount of combined economic and noneconomic damages, or $500,000, whichever is greater.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Nashville Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you’ve been injured by someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be facing mounting medical bills, the inability to work, and other financial struggles. Hiring a Nashville personal injury attorney may be another expense you think you can’t afford. The good news is, you can afford it! Most personal injury attorneys, including those at Steinger, Greene & Feiner, work on a contingency basis. This means the lawyer doesn’t get paid unless they win your case, and their payment comes as a percentage directly from the settlement or verdict itself. This not only eases your financial burden, but it also gives your lawyer an incentive to fight for the greatest amount of compensation possible. While hiring a personal injury lawyer has no upfront costs, you may be required to pay for certain court fees and other expenses. Some attorneys will cover these costs and take the expenses out of the final compensation. Be sure to speak with your attorney about their payment structure.
