What is a personal injury?
Any time a person suffers harm, regardless of the cause or whether the harm was physical, emotional, or mental, a personal injury has occurred. In the legal context, a personal injury is often another person’s fault. The definition also includes harm to personal property. When the harm is due to someone else’s negligence, a legal claim may be filed.
What are “damages”?
A legal claim can award “damages.” Damages in personal injury cases are usually monetary and are meant to compensate a victim of personal injury by reimbursing them for their costs and related losses. Damages in a personal injury case often cover:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Lost future earnings
- Lost property
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
Damages are meant to restore the victim back to the same position they would have been in, had the injury or accident not occurred.
What does a personal injury lawyer do?
A personal injury lawyer represents you and manages your case in an attempt to get compensation from other parties for damages. This type of lawyer focuses on “tort” law. A tort occurs whenever someone violates or infringes on the rights of someone else. For personal injury cases, a tort occurs when someone violates another person’s right to be free from harm. For example, everyone has a right to drive on the roads in Clarksville, free from car accidents. When someone does not follow the rules of the road and causes an accident, they violate that right.
What questions should be asked during the consultation?
A free consultation with our team is your opportunity to ask any questions you might have regarding your case, to bring up any concerns you may have, and to get to know the team before deciding to work with us. Take advantage of this time by asking questions such as:
- How we have dealt with similar cases in the past?
- What would a successful outcome be?
- What makes our firm different from other personal injury firms?
- How will we communicate with you?
- Are periodic updates expected?
- What will the attorney help with specifically?
- What determines how long a case will take?
How much does a personal injury attorney cost?
The vast majority of personal injury cases operate within a contingency fee agreement. This arrangement means that the lawyer will front all of the costs of the case and will not charge an hourly fee. Instead, the attorney will be paid at the end of the case. We don’t want costs to prevent you from getting the compensation that your case warrants nor do we want to see financial difficulties stand in the way of your recovery. We can work with you and medical care providers to help you through the difficult times after an accident.
Additionally, if we fail to win your case or obtain a settlement, you pay nothing. Talk to our team about any concerns you have about your future verdict or settlement. There can be great comfort knowing that you have counsel with hard earned experience working on countless accident cases in Clarksville and Montgomery C

Hughes & Coleman Clarksville Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyers are understanding toward those who are disabled and cannot work. More Tennessee SSD claims were denied last year than approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA). With our experience and up-to-date technology, we can file your disability application on the SSA website. If you already filed an application and it was denied, our disability attorneys can appeal the denial and request a hearing before a United States Administrative Law Judge. In the event, the disability judge denies the appeal, we can then appeal to the Federal court.
