Brandon Bass focuses on helping people who have been badly injured or lost a loved one. His core practice areas include products liability, medical malpractice, and trucking lawsuits.

Brandon's experience in products liability lawsuits includes industrial machinery, pharmaceuticals, automotive and tractor-trailer defects, and defects in construction materials.

Brandon has also assisted victims of medical malpractice in recovering for their losses from doctors and other health care providers. One of Brandon's clients was a child who was left in a persistent vegetative state after being infected by what the media calls the "superbug" - methicillin-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA). He also helped the wife and daughter of a man who died due to a pulmonary embolism. In another case, he assisted the children of a father who was not prescribed necessary antibiotics and ultimately passed away as the result of an infection.

Brandon has significant experience in trucking lawsuits, including cases involving tractor-trailers, buses, and other commercial vehicles. In one case involving a tractor-trailer collision, Brandon helped a two-year-old girl who suffered brain damage, a four-year-old girl who suffered orthopedic injuries, and a grandmother who passed away. Brandon helped a teacher whose leg was amputated as the result of a wreck. In another case, a young man suffered brain damage including the loss of his senses of smell and taste, and another young man suffered three torn ligaments in his right knee. Brandon also assisted a single father who suffered brain damage due to cargo falling on his head. In each of those cases, Brandon helped the victims recover from the person who caused their losses.

Brandon serves on the Board of Governors for the Tennessee Association for Justice, and is the organization's Amicus Curiae Committee Chair. He is also a member of the American Association for Justice, serving on the Board of Governors of its New Lawyers Division, as well as the Tennessee and Nashville Bar Associations. He has been a member of the John Marshall American Inn of Court in Williamson County, Tennessee. Brandon is a graduate of Purdue University and the University of Tennessee College of Law.

Brandon was named Shareholder in Law Offices of John Day, P.C. in 2010. In 2011, he earned the highest rating available to lawyers from Martindale-Hubbell, the AV Preeminent ranking, based on peer review.

Brandon frequently writes on personal injury and wrongful death legal issues. He is the author of:
