What Do I Do Following An Injury Accident?
If you have been injured in Hermitage or you are a Hermitage resident who has been injured somewhere else, there are some steps you can take following an injury accident. But, the best thing you can do following a serious injury accident is to call our office. One of our experienced attorneys will sit down with you in a no-cost, no-obligation consultation and answer your questions and advise you of your rights. The at-fault party or insurance company hopes you try to handle the matter yourself, but rest assured they will have lawyers advising them on ways to deny your claim. So, it is critical for you to have our team of attorneys, paralegals and on-staff nurse on your side.
Will I Have To Go To Court?
The good news is most cases settle short of a trial. In Davidson County, for the 2015-2016 reporting period, 1,700 tort cases (claims for personal injury or wrongful death) were filed and only 58 tort cases went to trial. Of those 58 trials, the injured party prevailed in 28 of them and the average amount won was $130,262.
Sometimes the at-fault party or the insurance company refuse to be reasonable by either denying liability or denying the extent of your injuries and damages. When that happens, we will not hesitate to file suit or try your case to protect your rights. John Day and Joy Day have both been certified as civil trial specialists by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Certification is a rigorous process; one that only a fraction of Tennessee's 23,000 plus attorneys has undergone.
What Will It Cost Me?
Getting started will not cost you a dime. Unlike a lot of lawyers, we do not make our clients secure expensive litigation loans. Instead, we advance all case expenses. So, we will advance the expense of gathering your medical records from the various doctors and facilities. We will advance the expense of hiring any experts who are necessary to prove your case. We will advance the costs for the court reporters and deposition costs. If it becomes necessary to file suit, we will advance that fee too. In short, you will not have to pay anything out of pocket. We only get paid if we win.
And, we do know how to win. We have recovered more than $140 million dollars for our satisfied clients. We would like to help you too. So contact us online or call us today at 615-742-4880 or toll-free at 866.812.8787.
