Mt. Juliet, Tennessee Injury Attorneys
You need an attorney, but you do not know who to hire. You know what you want in an attorney: someone you can trust; someone who is compassionate with you and tough on your opponent; someone who will give you high-quality representation and excellent results. Here are some questions you should ask when selecting an attorney to represent you:
- Does the lawyer routinely practice in injury law? At the Law Offices of John Day, our focus is on injury cases. We do not handle real estate closings, tax cases, adoptions, bankruptcies, DUIs or other criminal matters, will or trusts or other corporate matters. But, we have handled almost every type of injury case including auto accidents, trucking accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect cases, bus accidents, sexual abuse cases, motorcycle accidents, dog bite cases, medical malpractice cases, summer camp accidents, construction accidents, food poisoning cases, food allergy cases, cases involving injuries to the spinal cord (paraplegia and quadriplegia), serious burn cases, injuries caused by defective or unreasonably dangerous products, drowning accidents, cases involving injury or death during childbirth, golf cart accidents, boating accidents, jet ski accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents and many more. John Day literally wrote the books on injury and trial law in Tennessee. These books are cited by judges and routinely relied upon by other lawyers in the State.
- Does the lawyer have the resources to handle my case? Corporations and insurance companies have vast resources at their disposal and they can pay for a team of investigators, attorneys and experts. In complex products liability and medical malpractice cases, the expenses associated with proving your case can be in excess of a quarter of a million dollars. You need an attorney who can help level the playing field and who has the financial wherewithal to aggressively prosecute your case. Some lawyers will not advance case expenses. Or, in cases with large expenses, some lawyers require their clients to obtain litigation loans with unconscionable interest rates. At the Law Offices of John Day, we advance all case expenses. We do not ask you for a dime for case expenses, and we never ask our clients to obtain litigation loans. And, as always, we do not get paid unless we recover money for you.

- Is the lawyer well-respected in the community? What do past clients say about the attorney? Since 1993, Best Lawyers has ranked John Day as one of the country's best lawyers. Business Tennessee has consistently named John Day as one of the best attorneys in the State. U.S. News and World Report has ranked the Law Offices of John Day as one of the nation's Best Law Firms.
