Did you or a loved one suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Nashville or elsewhere in Davidson County? If so, you are not alone. According to the Tennessee Department of Health Division of Policy, Planning & Assessment’s Hospital Discharge Data System and Vital Statistics, about 10 out of every 1,000 Davidson County residents received treatment in an emergency room for traumatic brain injury in 2013. Out of Tennessee’s 95 counties, only 25 had higher rates of TBI between 2009 and 2013.

If another party’s negligence caused your brain injury, you deserve compensation, and the Nashville brain injury lawyers from Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers want to help you.

Hughes & Coleman Fights to Recover the Money You Deserve

The Nashville attorneys at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers have an established track record of recovering compensation for injured Nashvillians, including those who have suffered TBIs because of the negligent actions of others. We understand the process and what it takes to put together a thorough, compelling case that gets our clients the compensation they need.

At your initial consultation, we will review your injury and the circumstances surrounding it. Once we learn more, we will let you know if and how we can help. If you move forward with us, we will get to work right away. First, we will identify all potentially responsible parties. Next, we will gather evidence to demonstrate their liability. Then, we will begin negotiating for damages.

If the responsible party or their insurer does not agree to pay the fair compensation you deserve, we can file a lawsuit and take your case to court.

Identifying Responsible Parties

To pursue compensation for your brain injury, we must know precisely who was responsible. Sometimes it is more than one person or party. The type of injury you suffered usually determines who is most likely responsible.

For instance, in a car accident, we evaluate the other drivers involved and determine where the fault lies. If it was a slip and fall accident, we visit the property where it occurred and determine if the owner or manager breached their duty of care to you.

Gathering Evidence

Once we know which parties were responsible, we must gather and assemble evidence that makes their liability clear. Good evidence can take many forms. Based on the circumstances of your injury, it could include any or all of the following:

  • Photo and video evidence
  • Police reports
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Accident reconstruction
  • Home inspection reports
  • Comments from the responsible party

Negotiating for Compensation

When we have a solid case backed by compelling evidence, we can approach the responsible party or its insurer and demand compensation. Often, we can recover full and fair compensation without having to file a lawsuit and go to court. This situation is ideal in many ways, particularly because it can get you compensation much faster, and it allows us to avoid a potentially drawn-out legal process.

However, if the insurance company stalls, or if the responsible party denies responsibility and will not pay, we will file a lawsuit and begin preparation to try your case in front of a jury. With over 100 years of combined experience handling all types of injury cases, we are prepared for anything the process throws at us.

Count on Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers for All Types of Brain Injury Cases in Nashville

Brain injuries happen in many ways. No matter how yours occurred, the Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team in Nashville is here to help you recover the compensation you deserve so you can put your life back together.

Call us if you suffered your TBI in any of the following ways:

Falls

Among traumatic brain injuries in Davidson County, falls accounted for half of all hospitalizations, almost half of all ER visits, and over one-third of all deaths between 2009 and 2013. If your brain injury happened because of a fall, a strong chance exists that someone else was responsible. Our job is to identify that liable party, gather evidence, and pursue it for compensation.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents were the cause of one-fifth of all TBI-related hospitalizations in Davidson County between 2009 and 2013. Under Tennessee’s modified comparative negligence car accident law, even if you were partly responsible for your car accident, you can still recover damages from the other driver as long as you were not more than 49 percent at fault.

Firearms

When it comes to deaths from TBI in Davidson County, firearms are far-and-away the number one cause, accounting for more than half of all fatalities from brain injuries in the county. Both accidental shootings and intentional acts of violence contribute to the high fatality rate from firearms. If you or your loved one was a victim of firearm-related violence, we can hold the right party liable and help you recover compensation.

Aside from the categories above, there are many other causes of traumatic brain injury. We can help you no matter how yours occurred. Our attorneys treat clients like family, working tirelessly to meet your needs and get you the most compensation possible. To schedule a free consultation, call us at 800-800-4600.
