The moments and days following a car wreck can be frustrating and confusing. If you have been injured, your attention is on seeking medical treatment and recovering from your injuries. Additionally, you will need to attend to insurance matters. An insurance claims adjustor may tell you that attorney representation is not necessary.
However, to ensure your rights are fully protected, you should seek legal help as soon as possible. Parker and LaDuke will focus on helping you obtain the legal and medical care you need.
What Types Of Injuries May Be Covered After A Car Crash?
Motor vehicle accidents come in many different circumstances. Sometimes it is two (or more) sedans, sometimes a truck is involved. At other times, motorcycles, pedestrians or cyclists may be part of the collision. Regardless of what you were driving/riding, you may have suffered injuries that deserve compensation to aid your recovery, including:
- Broken arms or legs
- Neck or spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries, including internal brain damage or skull fractures
- Burns, ranging in severity from minor to life-threatening
- Soft tissue injuries, including painful damage to ligaments, tendons and muscles
You Have The Right To Seek Compensation For Your Injuries, But Don’t Delay
Under Tennessee personal injury law, you can seek financial damages for your injuries, expenses and other losses. Our attorneys advise you to seek legal help as soon as you can after the auto accident. We can immediately begin preserving evidence, taking photographs, collecting police reports and interviewing witnesses.
If you suffered personal injuries, always remember that under Tennessee state law, any court action must be filed within one year of the date of the injury. This is one of the shortest personal injury statutes of limitation in the country, so it is important to pursue your claim without delay.
