The Gallatin Brain Injury Lawyers at Hughes & Coleman Can Help You Win the Money You Deserve

Aside from the physical pain that accompanies a traumatic brain injury, you might be worried about the future and what lies ahead in the coming weeks and months. How will you pay your medical bills? What is going to happen to your job? At Hughes & Coleman, our job is to take these worries off your shoulders and put them on ours so that you can focus on recovering and getting your life back.

We help you win the money you deserve for your brain injury by doing the following:

  • Investigating your injury and identifying the at-fault party or parties;
  • Determining the liability laws that apply to your injury;
  • Collecting evidence to prove the other party or parties’ liability;
  • Tabulating your damages;
  • Calling on expert witnesses to provide testimony to strengthen your case.

Depending on who the responsible parties are, we often begin by making a claim with their insurance companies. If you have ever dealt with an insurance company after an accident or injury, you know that it is not always easy to get it to pay what you deserve. However, our team of brain injury lawyers has fought and won many claims against insurers, and we are prepared for any tactic it might use to deny or reduce your claim.

If the insurance company does not agree to offer you fair compensation, our next step is to file a lawsuit and take your case to a jury trial. Again, our attorneys have a strong track record of winning fair judgments for our clients at trial, and we can put that experience and our resources to work for you.

Hughes & Coleman Helps You Recover All the Damages to Which You Are Entitled

When we take your brain injury case, one of the first things we do is tabulate both the economic and noneconomic damages you have incurred as a result of your injury. This helps us determine exactly how much your claim is worth so that we can aggressively pursue the responsible party and its insurer for the full amount.

Since every TBI case has different circumstances, it is impossible to estimate the value of your claim before knowing the details. However, we have won many clients some or all the following damages in past settlements and verdicts:

  • Current and future medical expenses;
  • Lost income from work;
  • Reduced earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering damages;
  • Emotional anguish;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Scarring and disfigurement;
  • Punitive damages.
  • FREE CASE EVALUATION

We Fight for You No Matter How Your Brain Injury Occurred

No matter how your brain injury occurred, the Hughes & Coleman team investigates, identifies the responsible party, and aggressively pursues them for damages.

If you sustained a brain injury in any of the following ways — or in any way not listed below — call us to find out how we can help.

Falls

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), falls accounted for 47 percent of TBI-related hospitalizations nationwide in 2013. In Sumner County, the rate was even higher, at 57 percent between 2009 and 2013. When someone falls and suffers a serious injury, another party is often at fault. That party could be a property owner, property manager, job site owner, or someone else.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Right behind falls, motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of TBI-related hospitalizations and ER visits in Sumner County. In Tennessee, auto accident fault is assigned on a modified comparative negligence basis. Under this policy, even if you were partially at fault for the accident that caused your brain injury, we can still pursue the other driver for compensation as long as your level of responsibility does not exceed 49 percent.

Firearms

Firearms were the number-one cause of TBI-related deaths in Sumner County between 2009 and 2013. If a firearm injured you, whether it was an accident or an intentional act of violence, our attorneys want to help you win compensation from the responsible party.

Likewise, if a firearm ended your loved one’s life in Sumner County, we can go after the responsible party for compensation, including wrongful death damages.

Even if your brain injury in Gallatin does not fall into one of the categories listed above, we can help, and we want to hear from you. Our 100+ years of experience fighting for personal injury victims has taught us that many injured parties do not even realize that someone else might be responsible for their injuries until they talk to us.

Remember, the consultation is free, and there is no risk or obligation. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from sitting down with our dedicated legal staff.
