How a Murfreesboro Car Accident Lawyer from Hughes & Coleman Can Help You

It is normal to feel overwhelmed after a car accident. You might even feel bitter or resentful as your bills pile up because you know that someone else’s irresponsible actions put you in your current state. That is typical, too. At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, our job is to make your life easier by handling every aspect of the claims process so you can focus on recovering.

We Operate on a Contingency Basis

One reason injury victims do not call a lawyer right away is that they are worried about money. They think attorneys are prohibitively expensive and fret about how they will afford the fees. At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, you don’t have to worry about that because we get paid on a contingency basis. This means we do not receive a single dollar until we recover money for you. And the initial case evaluation is completely free with no risk or obligation.

When you work with an attorney from Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, here are a few tasks we can do on your behalf:

Obtain Police Reports

The police report is one of the most important pieces of evidence about your accident. It contains the responding officer’s official write-up of how they believe the accident happened, what the damage looked like at the scene, if there were injuries involved, and who the officer believes is at fault.

The contents of the police report — in particular, the officer’s interpretation of fault — inform us as to the course we need to take in collecting additional evidence and building your case.

Interview Witnesses

Witness statements also offer powerful pieces of evidence in your case. Our team tracks down witnesses from the scene and collects statements from them about what they saw.

Evaluate Your Medical Records

In addition to showing you suffered injuries, we must also establish a link between the accident and your injuries. To do so, we can evaluate your medical records and, if necessary, discuss your case with a medical expert to establish exactly how the accident could have caused your injuries.

Acquire Expert Witnesses

The opinion of an expert witness carries significant weight both in negotiations with the insurance company and at trial. These expert witnesses might include accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, vocational experts, and more.

Negotiate with Insurers

Recovering compensation from a car accident usually requires negotiating with a representative from an insurance company, and they can be tough negotiators. Insurers have a strong financial incentive to reduce or deny your claim when possible. Our attorneys know how to keep the upper hand during negotiations, helping you collect the full and fair compensation you deserve.

If Necessary, Go to Trial

We try to negotiate a fair out-of-court settlement when we can. That way, you receive the money you need much more quickly, and we avoid a lengthy, protracted legal process. However, if the negligent driver’s insurance company will not agree to compensate you fairly, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit and take your case to a jury trial.

Our Attorneys Help You Recover Fair Compensation for Your Injury-Related Expenses and Other Losses

As a car accident victim, you have no doubt incurred a long list of financial expenses from the crash. From medical bills to lost income, you are likely feeling a great deal of financial stress, and our most important job as your Murfreesboro car accident lawyers is to make sure you recoup these losses in the form of a settlement or court-ordered payment.

The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team will fight to help you recover compensation for expenses and losses such as:

  • Current and anticipated future medical bills
  • Lost income from work
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Property damage (your vehicle and other valuables inside it)

You might also be able to recover compensation for losses that are not financial in nature. These items include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

Lastly, if we uncover evidence that the other driver in the accident was not merely negligent but was behaving in a grossly reckless or malicious way, we can push for punitive damages, a special form of compensation the jury awards as a way to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from similar behavior.

We Can Help Even if the Accident Was Partially Your Fault

Tennessee, as a modified comparative negligence state, does not automatically bar you from going after the other driver for damages just because you may have contributed to the crash. The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team will evaluate your accident and determine if you are eligible for compensation despite any role your actions might have played in causing the wreck.

Many of our car accident clients have been able to collect compensation from the other driver’s insurance company despite being 10, 20, and even 45 percent at fault for the crash.
