What Should I Do Following a Serious Injury?
More often than not, victims and their families become overwhelmed following a severe accident or other traumatic experience. With most cases, they put off taking any immediate action, which can lead to even bigger problems further down the road. Our main priority with every case is the health and welfare of those who have been injured, or, with fatal accidents, the emotional and financial well-being of those who were left behind.
Though the driver at fault and the insurance companies involved can afford the comfort of time, we often see that this is not the case for the victim. Over time, memory fades, evidence is lost, and victims are sometimes completely forgotten while attorneys are already be silently working on behalf of the insurance companies involved. Many times, a tactic will be used to postpone and deny the case in order to discourage claimants from actually following through on filing and/or accept a low offer.
In the end, statutes of limitations in Tennessee will govern an individual’s ability to pursue personal injury or wrongful death claims. These statutes may vary depending on the case, so consulting with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney in a timely manner should be your highest priority after any kind of accident.
How Should I Handle an Underinsured or Uninsured Driver Accident?
A large portion of motorists on the road drive without insurance, so accidents involving uninsured or underinsured motorists are more common than one might think. Even more drivers just carry the minimum $10,000 coverage required by law, which is typically insufficient in most car accidents.
Often, drivers are left to file claims with their own underinsured motorist coverage, which can place them in an antagonistic position with their insurance company. With such cases, it is best to pursue the outside counsel of a personal injury attorney to stand up for your rights and ensure you have the best options available following an accident.
