Our practice areas

Our team of Clarksville personal injury attorneys handles personal injury cases of all kinds and has extensive experience helping clients with a broad range of personal injury law areas, including – but not limited to – the following:

Car Accident Cases

Every day in Clarksville, a car accident is caused by negligent drivers. Sadly, in many cases, these car wrecks could have been avoided. A car accident lawyer from our firm can help you maximize your claim if you were involved in one of these collisions in Tennessee and help you recover damages for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and other financial compensation you may be entitled to.

Truck Accidents

Serious truck collisions result in severe injuries and require a serious legal response from an experienced truck accident lawyer. Call us to speak with our team about your truck accident claim.

Brain Injury Cases

An injury that alters one’s life will require significant compensation to cover all losses. Traumatic brain injuries and other serious injuries often require lengthy recovery processes. Let a brain injury lawyer from our firm handle your case so that you can focus on recovery.

Motorcycle Wrecks

Even when moving at a relatively low speed, motorcyclists frequently sustain catastrophic injuries. A motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover every dollar you deserve.

Premises Liability

Whether you are shopping at a grocery store, visiting a friend for dinner, or even walking through the hallways of your apartment complex, you likely enter a property that belongs to others every single day. Serious injury can occur if property owners fail to use reasonable care and create or allow a dangerous condition. Our firm routinely handles these types of cases and has a dedicated team of premises liability lawyers who will fight on your behalf.

Slip and Fall Accidents

If you’ve been hurt in a department store, other retail location, or property that a government entity is responsible for maintaining, our slip and fall injury attorneys can help you hold the responsible party accountable.

Dog Bites

A dog’s owner is often responsible for injuries that occur due to a dog bite or attack. A dog bite lawyer from our firm can help you understand the specific laws that apply to your case and what damages you may be entitled to claim.

Defective Medical Devices

If you suspect you or a loved one has been injured by a defective medical device, it is important that you obtain legal representation as soon as possible. Our injury attorneys are well-versed in Tennessee laws regarding defective products and can help you navigate the complexities of these types of cases.

Defective Products

In a defective product case, many parties can be held accountable. A defective product lawyer can identify all negligent actions, from manufacturer defects to marketing defects, that may have contributed to your injury.

Drug Injury

Prescription drugs can often result in unexpected side effects that pharmaceutical companies have either downplayed or failed to properly disclose altogether. Medical expenses and medical bills can build up, and personal injury claims against large pharma companies can often be very complex. Make sure you have experienced personal injury attorneys on your side who know how to handle defective drug cases.

Environmental Injuries

When you’ve been diagnosed with an injury as a result of being exposed to environmental hazards, such as a toxic substance, you have a limited time to file your claim. Our environmental injury lawyers team has decades of experience in effectively representing victims of environmental injuries. If you’ve been injured by no fault of your own, contact us today so that we can begin to establish your case.

Fire And Burn Injury

In order to pursue a fire and burn injury case, your attorneys will need to successfully prove that someone else was at fault and responsible for damages. Our team routinely seeks damages in these cases from parties such as landlords and property owners, negligent individuals, as well as employers, corporations, and businesses.

Insurance Dispute

The vast majority of injury claims include disputes with insurance companies. Our team is well-versed in the tactics these companies use to avoid paying victims the money they’re entitled to.

Nursing Home Abuse

Our dedicated team of nursing home abuse lawyers can help prove abuse or neglect of you or a loved one. If you suspect abuse or neglect, you should contact us immediately so that an injury lawyer on our team can begin your claim.

Social Security Disability

If you are denied your social security disability benefits, a Social Security Disability lawyer at our firm can help you appeal your claim to get you the money you’re entitled to. If you’ve already filed an application and it was denied, we will request a hearing before a United States Administrative Law Judge. In the event that the disability judge denies the appeal, we can then appeal to the Federal Court. Let us fight for you.

Workers’ Compensation

We will help you fight for and recover the workers’ compensation benefits and other compensation you deserve. Our lawyers have extensive tools and resources to fight back against any attempt to deny you the benefits to which you are entitled.

Medical Malpractice

If you have suffered harm as a result of a doctor or healthcare provider’s negligence, our dedicated medical malpractice personal injury attorney team is here to help you through these complex matters. If a loved one has died as a result of medical malpractice, we can also help by seeking wrongful death damages.

Wrongful Death

Injury and wrongful death claims often come with grief, trauma, and emotional distress brought on by losing a loved one. Let our team of wrongful death lawyers handle the legal aspects of your case so that you can take this time to heal.

For a full list of the types of cases we represent and to learn more about your legal rights, refer to our Practice Areas or call us today to speak to a member of our team at 800-800-4600.

Insurance denial

Don't delay – time favors the insurance companies

To safeguard your rights, you must take action right away. According to Tennessee law, all personal injury claims (including car accidents, slip and falls, and medical malpractice claims) have a statute of limitations, as noted in TN Code Section 28-3-104. The code provides that you have one year from the accident date to file a claim against the liable party in civil court. If you fail to file within this time period, you risk having your case dismissed by the judge. Hiring a personal injury attorney to handle your case will allow you to have your complaint filed in a timely fashion.

The insurance company is not on your side

Making money and maintaining affordable insurance rates are priorities for insurance companies. This implies that they are incentivized to give you the least amount possible.

The insurance provider employs high-priced agents like adjusters, investigators, and attorneys. It is in your best interest to have an accomplished Clarksville personal injury attorney on your side before speaking with an insurance provider. Our law firm can help ensure that the integrity of personal injury claims is safeguarded from the very start.

Frequently asked questions and helpful tips

What does a personal injury lawyer do?

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. A legal claim may be filed when the harm is due to someone else’s negligence. A personal injury lawyer helps you recover damages that you have suffered due to no fault of your own.

In this video, attorney and founding partner Lee Coleman details what a Clarksville personal injury lawyer does, and why hiring a personal injury attorney is critical in order to obtain the compensation you deserve.

 

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, which in many cases include current and future expenses. Damages in a personal injury case often cover:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses and medical bills (including future expenses)
  • Lost future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

Damages are meant to restore the victim to the same position they would have been in had the injury or accident not occurred. In wrongful death actions, many of the same damages may apply during the legal process.

What are good questions to ask a Clarksville personal injury attorney in your initial 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 have we 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 can the modified comparative negligence rule in Tennessee affect a personal injury case?

Even if you acknowledge some fault for your accident and injuries, you can still demand compensation from the other party. You can file a personal injury claim against another party responsible for your damages in Tennessee under the state’s modified comparative negligence rule. Tennessee uses the modified comparative negligence method for car accident cases based on the 50% rule. In other words, it’s still possible to recover for your injuries and damages even if you’re 49% or less at fault.

If you have any other questions, call us any time at 800-800-4600.
