Our Practice Areas of Personal Injury Law in Dyersburg, TN

Personal injury is an area of law that encompasses a broad variety of claims. The intent of this law is to restore as much as possible of what the injured person has lost and to discourage others from committing the same offense.

Each lawyer with our law firm is experienced in handling a variety of cases, such as:

  • Premises liability or slip-and-fall: Slip-and-fall accidents account for over 1 million emergency room visits each year. The property owner or manager has a legal responsibility to ensure a safe environment for visitors. Failure to promptly tend to hazards – such as icy sidewalks, unmarked wet floors, and broken steps – could make him or her liable.

 

  • Auto accidents: Every year in the US, 3 million people are injured in auto accidents. In many cases, a driver was distracted. In fact, 2,841 people were killed as a result of distracted driving in 2018. That same year, Dyer county alone had 60 crashes from distracted driving. Some other common forms of negligence while driving include speeding, failing to yield, and DUIs.

 

  • Commercial truck accidents: Due to the size of the vehicles, commercial truck accidents often cause serious, life-threatening, or life-changing injuries to the victims. In 2018, large trucks and buses were involved in 5,096 fatal accidents. These types of accidents usually involve multiple potentially liable parties and insurance companies. As such, determining liability can be a complicated process. A lawyer can help make your life easier in this respect.

 

  • Workers’ compensation: Each employer has a legal responsibility to provide a safe work environment. However, according to the National Safety Council, a worker is injured on the job every 7 seconds! The company in Dyersburg, TN, may hold workers’ compensation insurance, but the adjuster may only seek to minimize the cost of your claim. Other parties may also be liable.

 

  • Medical malpractice: When a medical professional in Dyersburg, TN, violates the standard of care, it is considered to be a case of malpractice. Such negligence can result in life-changing injury or death. According to one study, more than 250,000 deaths occur each year in the US due to medical errors.

 

  • Social Security disability: A person may qualify for social security disability benefits when he or she suffers a mental or physical disability that prevents the daily routine of work. Approximately 1 in 4 adults in the nation reports a disability. However, there are many obstacles to receiving disability payments, such as claim denial, insufficient medical evidence, and failure to cooperate. Some cases may even have to be argued in court with the help of an experienced lawyer.

 

  • Wrongful death: Wrongful death occurs when someone is killed by a negligent act (not including self-defense). Losing a family member is emotionally devastating. When the loss is due to someone’s negligence, though, it can be even more crushing. Some common causes of wrongful death cases include pedestrian and bicycle accidents, defective products, and violent acts.
