What should I do if I get an accident?
If you are seriously injured, you should immediately call 911.
If you remain on the scene or have someone you know on the seen you should take the following steps:
- Document everything at the scene of the accident including taking pictures if possible
- Exchange insurance information with the other drivers involved in the accident. You will need:
- Phone Number
- License Plate Number
- Insurance Company
- Insurance Company Policy Number
- Contact your insurance company within 24 hours and tell them what happened.
- If you are hurt, go to the doctor and seek medical evaluation. Sometimes you may not feel injuries immediately but that does not mean the accident did not cause them.
- Keep track of all of your expenses, including medical bills and car repairs.
Do not discuss your accident with anyone including other drivers or other insurance companies. Getting in an accident can be a very stressful event and it is important that nothing is said that might endanger your chance at recovering anything owed to you.
Finally, contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights as it relates to your accidents.
The sooner you contact an attorney the better off you will be.
Why choose us for your car wreck?
We focus on maximizing recovery for each one of our clients individually. Our firm does not take thousands of clients at a time like other big firms. To those firms, you are simply a number in a filing cabinet. We are more selective in what cases we take and focus on getting you more money. Finally, when you call us an actual attorney will evaluate your case and determine if we can help you get the money you deserve.
Do I need a lawyer?
You absolutely need a lawyer in an automobile accident case. The insurance companies will do anything possible to try and limit how much money they will give you. You will need an experienced lawyer who knows Tennessee law to fight for you and get the insurance companies to pay you what you deserve.
How much do we charge?
We only get paid if you win. We operate on a contingency fee, which means if we don’t get you money, we do not get paid. You pay $0 until your case settles. Our fee comes in the form of a percentage at the end of the case.
Should I talk to a lawyer today?
It is very important that you talk to a lawyer as soon as possible as you only have a limited time to file a claim. Without a lawyer, the insurance companies will try and trick you into saying or doing something that will harm or even destroy your case. A lawyer can stop the insurance company calls and protect your rights.
Call us today! We can usually connect you with an attorney immediately. If an attorney is not available one will call you within 24 hours.
