We Can Help You
If you have been involved in an accident, the consequences can be devastating to your physical, emotional and financial well-being. Tennessee's laws on personal injury are complex and are subject to recent changes by the Legislature. The process can be intimidating and confusing. Do not be tempted to simply take what the insurance company is offering you.
You need a skilled and aggressive advocate on your side so that you can be sure you are getting all the compensation you deserve. At The Law Offices of John Day, P.C. we have a team of talented and experienced attorneys and paralegals. We also employ full-time a nurse to assist with medical issues. And, we know how to get results. We have recovered millions and millions of dollars for our satisfied clients, and we can help you too.
Will I Have To Go To Court?
We try to resolve all our cases without the necessity of filing suit and going to trial. But sometimes, in order to hold the at-fault person accountable and get you all the compensation you deserve, we must file suit or try your case. If that is necessary, Hickman County is located within the 21st Judicial District which also includes Lewis, Perry and Williamson counties.
