Below you will find some frequently asked questions about personal injury law. We look forward to answering any further questions you may have.

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury occurs any time someone suffers harm, whether physical, emotional, or mental. Personal injury law also applies to property damage. If the damage is caused by someone else’s negligent actions, that person may be required by law to pay financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and various losses. 

If you or a loved one in our state has suffered due to the actions of another person, you may be eligible to legally seek justice. However, holding the person who caused your suffering, or his or her insurance company, responsible is often harder than it seems. Insurance companies always fight personal injury claims, but you don’t have to face them alone. A Tennessee personal injury lawyer is standing by to help you.

What Does a Chattanooga Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

A personal injury lawyer represents your interests and manages your case to seek compensation from another party for damages. Everyone has the right to be free from harm. For example, everyone should be able to drive safely on the Tennessee roads in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains without being in an accident. If someone else caused you to be involved in an accident, then that party has violated your rights. 

You must find a lawyer who is passionate about your case and willing to take it to trial, if necessary. Our personal injury lawyers serving Chattanooga will collect data and evidence regarding your claim, communicate with the other parties and their insurers, and prepare the necessary legal documents for a settlement or even a trial. 

We know you may not be looking forward to a lawsuit, but we can handle all the snags for you. What’s more, we will not make any moves without your knowledge; at Hughes & Coleman, our attorneys always update our clients about their cases from day one. 

What to Do After a Personal Injury

After the majority of accidents or injuries, the first step is to seek immediate medical attention. Even if the injuries seem minor, the medical documentation you receive is vital in supporting your personal injury claim. Once you’ve received the necessary medical care, there are several more steps to follow to ensure the best possible outcome for your case. 

Next, depending on the type of accident, it may be a good idea to contact the police and file a police report. It may also be wise to contact your insurance company as soon as possible. But remember that it’s better not to speak to the other party or insurer about the accident. 

Finally, it’s important to think about your future and your recovery, physically, and financially. After being unjustly injured, your chances for recovery may increase significantly if you hire one of our personal injury attorneys with experience in the Chattanooga area to fight for your rights. Your lawyer, knowledgeable in Tennessee laws, can worry about the various aspects of your claim so that you can focus on what’s really important – your recovery.

For example, if you were involved in a car accident, the first few things you’d want to do include calling the police, getting an ambulance if necessary, and exchanging information with the other parties involved. After receiving medical treatment and filing a police report, you can call a Chattanooga personal injury attorney for a free consultation. Your lawyer will look into the details of your claim and investigate its cause. 

If you’ve been injured in Tennessee in a minor accident or car wreck, don’t feel overwhelmed. The Chattanooga area law firm of Hughes & Coleman is ready and willing to help.
