The Influx of New Residents to Middle Tennessee Has Caused Additional Traffic Risks

With the overwhelming growth in Middle Tennessee, traffic has become a major headache for those who commute into Nashville. It is much more challenging to navigate Gallatin, Hendersonville, and other areas of Sumner County than it was a few years ago. Many drivers treat Vietnam Veterans Boulevard (State Route 386) like a racetrack, creating dangerous conditions and even deadly crashes. Rollovers, rear-end accidents, and even multi-car pile-ups have occurred.

According to a news report from WKRN in Nashville, Sumner County had more than 20 fatal accidents in 2016. The following year, Tennessee State Police, working in conjunction with Hendersonville Police and Gallatin Police, launched Operation Safe Sumner. They hope by increasing police presence, this project will help reduce speeds and encourage safer driving in some of the most dangerous spots in Sumner County.

Our Attorneys Can Handle Your Gallatin Car Accident Claim from Beginning to End

With the help of the Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers personal injury team, you can focus on recovering from your injuries and getting back to work. We will investigate your accident and file an insurance claim on your behalf. If we cannot reach a fair settlement agreement with the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance carrier, we will not hesitate to file a personal injury lawsuit and take your case before a judge.

Understanding the Role of Negligence in a Tennessee Car Accident Case

The first step in recovering a personal injury payout for a car accident victim is to identify the at-fault driver and determine how and why they caused the crash. This is required for us to prove negligence. Negligence consists of four primary elements:

  1. The driver had a responsibility to operate their vehicle in safe way; and
  2. The driver failed to uphold this responsibility, often breaking traffic laws; and
  3. This failure caused the accident and resulted in your injuries; and
  4. You suffered compensable damages in the accident.

Not only will we conduct a full investigation to prove these four elements, but we will also provide a strong case to present to the insurance company or court when we demand a fair payout.

Investigating Your Gallatin Car Accident

Our investigations require us to rely on a number of experts, including survey teams, accident reconstruction specialists, medical experts, and others. Not only do we have the resources and connections to manage this part of your case, but we will also take other steps to ensure we have a solid case to argue on your behalf. This may include identifying, collecting, and analyzing many different types of evidence to prove fault and document your full range of expenses and losses.

Handling Your Auto Accident Claim or Personal Injury Lawsuit

Once our investigation into your accident is complete, we will prepare to file an injury claim on your behalf. Often, we can settle these cases without going to court. However, if the insurance company refuses a fair settlement, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver to try to recover the compensation you deserve.

When we handle a Gallatin car accident case, we take care of everything from start to finish. You can expect our team to protect your right to fair compensation, manage all communications with the insurance company, file your insurance claim, negotiate with the insurance company, and file a lawsuit only if necessary.
