Accidents and Injuries in Columbia Tennessee

Hughes & Coleman is proud to be a part of the community here in Columbia. We want every person who steps into our office to feel welcomed and cared for.

Our Columbia office is staffed with professionals ready to help with car, truck and motorcycle accidents, worker’s compensation, nursing home abuse, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, drug injuries, defective product injuries and more.

If you have questions about how we can help you, we welcome your visit or call. To get you started, here are some of the questions we are frequently asked.

  • Get It Done.


  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 a great comfort knowing that you have counsel with hard-earned experience working on countless accident cases in Tennessee.

Columbia, Tennessee Social Security Disability Attorneys

Hughes & Coleman Columbia 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.

Our firm concentrates on personal injury claims for workers’ compensation, auto accidents and social security disability.  If you have questions regarding Social Security benefits or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSI) in Tennessee, you need a personal injury attorney.

Hughes & Coleman has experienced disability lawyers that are there for clients in need of legal advice regarding a personal injury claim. Our personal injury disability attorneys will answer questions and walk you through the SSD application process. Only trust an experienced injury lawyer who handles disability claims with your case and not so-called “advocates” who cannot represent you in court. Our disability firm has only attorneys who can represent you and ensure your rights are protected. Our Tennessee personal injury lawyers know the social security rules and regulations and won’t back down when it comes to ensuring you receive the proper disability compensation.
