Lee Coleman - Murfreesboro Personal Injury Lawyer

Our mission is to help injured people and their families

Our Murfreesboro personal injury lawyers are committed to providing you with the best representation they possibly can. With over 35 years of experience representing thousands of injured victims, you can trust that our team will be here for you every step of the way.

What our Murfreesboro personal injury lawyers can do for you

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and financial losses. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is the best way to ensure that you receive every dollar you deserve. An accident injury lawyer deals with insurance companies every day, knows both Murfreesboro and Tennessee laws, and knows what your injury is worth. This experience makes all the difference when seeking to recover damages because, without it, thousands or even millions of dollars can often be left on the table that would otherwise be awarded through either a settlement or a trial verdict.

We help you recover damages for:

  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses (including future medical expenses)
  • Lost wages, as well as future lost wages that you may experience as a result of your injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish, which can include anxiety, depression, and other related emotional distress that stem from the accident

When you hire a personal injury lawyer, you are not only helping yourself in the short term. An experienced firm helps ensure that you are compensated fairly for the long term as well, which makes all the difference – especially if you’ve suffered a serious or severe injury.

Will hiring a personal injury lawyer get me more money, according to research?

The Insurance Research Council conducted a comprehensive study titled “Attorney Involvement in Auto Injury Claims,” which compared the amounts that injured people recovered when represented by an attorney in personal injury lawsuits versus the amounts that people recovered when they were not represented.

What the research concluded was that those represented by personal injury attorneys received nearly three and a half times more money, even after attorney fees were paid.

Our fees are based on an agreed-upon percentage of the total settlement at the conclusion of the case.

Our practice areas and the types of cases we handle

Turn to a legal team with experience and resources. Our team of Tennessee personal injury lawyers has extensive experience helping clients with a broad range of personal injury law areas, including – but not limited to – the following:

Car Accidents

If another driver’s negligence causes a car accident that injures you or your family, you may be able to recover damages. Automobile accidents can range from a distracted driver to someone who causes a crash while intoxicated or any other type of reckless driving. Regardless of the circumstances, if you’ve been injured in a car wreck due to someone else’s negligence, a car accident lawyer at our firm is here to help. Car accident cases are some of the most common claims that we handle, and we work tirelessly to ensure that our clients are fairly compensated.

Truck Accidents

Since Interstate 24 runs right through Murfreesboro, residents may be at a higher risk for trucking accidents. Due to these vehicles’ enormous weight and size, motor vehicle accidents involving 18-wheelers frequently result in serious injuries. The truck driver, or the trucking company, may be held responsible depending on the circumstances. You need an experienced truck accident lawyer in these often complex cases.

Brain Injury Cases, Including Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a severe and frequently life-changing condition that can cause physical, cognitive, and emotional impairments, making it imperative to hire a brain injury lawyer to safeguard your legal rights and obtain just compensation for your damages.

Premises Liability

Premises liability cases arise when someone is injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions. This can include slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and inadequate security. A premises liability lawyer can be beneficial in these cases because they have experience in navigating the legal complexities of these types of claims and can help victims recover compensation for their injuries and damages.

Defective Products

Defective product injury cases occur when someone is injured due to a product that is dangerous or faulty. This can include anything from defective electronics to contaminated food. A defective product lawyer can be beneficial in these cases because they have experience in determining liability and can help victims recover compensation for their injuries and damages from the responsible parties, which may include the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer.

Defective Medical Devices

Defective medical devices are products that are intended to help patients but end up causing harm due to design or manufacturing faults. Patients who are injured by these devices may require additional medical treatment, suffer financial losses, or experience emotional distress. A defective medical device lawyer can be beneficial in these cases because they can help victims navigate the complex legal process, hold manufacturers accountable for their negligence, and recover compensation for their injuries and damages.

Motorcycle Wrecks

These are among the deadliest road accidents because riders are only protected by their helmets and any other protective gear they are wearing. These collisions frequently cause catastrophic damage or death. Don’t accept a settlement offer without speaking with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.

Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

This category of cases includes a variety of forms of elder abuse, including physical abuse, financial exploitation, and staff neglect. Contacting a nursing home abuse lawyer is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your loved one and others.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Sadly, slip and fall accidents in Murfreesboro can happen anywhere, from shopping centers and parking facilities to public locations like pools and parks. These accidents might be caused by snow and ice, wet floors, debris, inadequate lighting or other issues caused by negligence. These may appear to be minor mistakes, yet they can cause months, years, or even lifelong suffering.

Wrongful Death

If you have suffered the unimaginable loss of a loved one in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, a wrongful death claim may be your best legal option. Even if another type of accident caused the death, the laws governing a claim are frequently separate and distinct. In Tennessee, the statute of limitations is one of the strictest in the nation. Don’t wait to contact a wrongful death attorney.

Fire and Burn Injury

A fire and burn lawyer can be beneficial in cases where a victim has suffered injuries or damages as a result of a fire or burn incident. We have experience in determining liability, negotiating with insurance companies, and pursuing maximum compensation for our clients, which may include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Dog Bites and Attacks

Because the victim and pet owner may know each other and the victims are frequently children, these cases can be extremely sensitive. Trespassing issues can sometimes add to the claim’s complexity. If you or someone you love has been injured by an attack, our dog bite lawyers can help you.

Birth Injuries

A birth injury lawyer can help families who have suffered a birth injury by investigating the circumstances of the injury and determining if malpractice or negligence played a role. They can also assist in pursuing compensation for the child’s injuries and damages, which may include medical expenses, ongoing care, and pain and suffering.

Environmental Injuries

A personal injury lawyer can help individuals who have suffered environmental injuries by investigating the circumstances of the injury and determining if negligence or wrongdoing played a role. They can also assist in pursuing compensation for the victim’s injuries caused by exposure to hazardous substances or other environmental hazards.

Medical Malpractice

Most healthcare professionals work with the utmost dedication and care, but patients can suffer life-threatening complications and injuries if they don’t. Pharmaceutical errors, surgical errors, and incorrect diagnoses are just a few reasons to file a claim against a healthcare provider.

Social Security Disability

A social security disability lawyer can help by assisting with the application or appeal process for social security disability benefits, ensuring you receive the financial assistance you need due to a disability.

Drug Injuries

A drug injury is defined under the law as any harm caused to an individual as a result of taking a prescription or over-the-counter medication, including side effects, adverse reactions, or injuries caused by defective or dangerous drugs. If you’ve been injured by a drug, contact us today.

Workers’ Compensation

A workers’ compensation lawyer from our firm can help by advocating for your rights, ensuring you receive fair compensation for work-related injuries, and helping you navigate the legal system.

Frequently asked questions and helpful tips about personal injuries

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is an attorney who represents accident victims in cases where one party was injured due to the action or inaction of another person. He or she will use their knowledge of personal injury law to build a case that proves the fault of the other party. Hughes & Coleman’s attorneys have extensive experience with the requirements under Tennessee law to prove fault and recover damages in a personal injury case.

In this video, attorney and founding partner, Lee Coleman details everything you need to know about what a Murfreesboro personal injury lawyer does, and why it’s important for you to hire an attorney as soon as possible if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence.


How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Our firm works with clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t pay anything unless we recover damages on your behalf.

Do I need a personal injury attorney?

There are many things that are considered when determining if you have a personal injury accident case to pursue. Some of the factors can include how your injury occurred and the circumstances surrounding the incident, laws, and regulations specific to the type of injury case you are pursuing and more.

Do I need a personal injury attorney?

Our legal team is available 24/7 to take your call and to help you understand the legal options you have available to you.

How much is my case worth?

This is a very common question that is very challenging to answer. Aspects of the case that our TN personal injury attorneys will take into consideration are the extent of your injuries and if you will be able to recover from them, as well as the various impacts the injuries have had on your life. The value of your case may change over the course of your claim; for example, minor injuries can turn into major ones, and our team will evaluate what your case is worth based on the circumstances that arise and fight for all the money you deserve.

What percentage do most personal injury lawyers receive out of a settlement or verdict?

Most attorneys will charge one-third of your settlement, while others will ask for 40%. At Hughes & Coleman, we are transparent about our fees and will discuss them with you to ensure you are comfortable and informed before moving forward.

How can I best protect my claim after a personal injury?

Seek medical help as soon as possible.

Even if you’re not sure if you’ve been hurt, it’s a good idea to seek medical help as quickly as possible after an accident. Delays in treatment can jeopardize your health and raise questions about whether your injuries were caused by the accident or another unrelated incident.

Record the incident.

First and foremost, notify the police about the accident. Take photographs and get the names of witnesses, if possible, at the accident scene. As soon as possible, write down your perspective of the accident while it is still fresh in your mind. Also, keep track of all doctor’s appointments, medical expenses, and time away from work.

Seek legal advice.

An experienced personal injury lawyer can tell you if you have a personal injury claim and the best next steps for you to take. We provide a no-cost, no-obligation case review.

The insurance company will use many tactics to devalue or deny your case, so it is important to speak with one of our Murfreesboro, TN, personal injury attorneys before accepting any settlement.

Can I still collect damages if I’m partly at fault?

Yes. Under the Tennessee’s modified comparative negligence rule you can still be entitled to compensation as long as your portion of fault does not exceed 49%; however, if it is determined that if you are 50% or more at fault, you are barred from recovering any damages. This is a big reason why it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.

When is an accident considered a personal injury?

An accident causes a personal injury when an individual has suffered any type of harm. This harm is usually physical, but it can be mental or emotional as well. Damage to property also falls under the definition of personal injury. Personal injury cases can involve a car accident, slip and fall accidents, product defects, medical malpractice and more.

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