Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
In the moments following your accident, you may be scared and overwhelmed. We at Davis, Kessler & Davis want to take some of the worry off your shoulders. Every case is unique and your questions deserve personal, custom answers, so it’s best to schedule a consultation to discuss your case with our attorneys. But for some of the most commonly asked questions, we are here to help.
What forms of compensation am I entitled to receive?
We fight for all forms of compensation to cover every expense you may have from your accident. This includes current and future medical treatment, lost wages, loss in earning potential, property damage, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. In some instances, you may be able to receive punitive damages as well.
How much is my case worth?
Every case is unique. Auto accident cases largely depend on what insurance policy the other driver has, or your own insurance policy if you were involved in an uninsured motorist accident. To learn what your individual case may be worth, schedule a free consultation at our Tennessee offices.
What do I do after a car accident?
The first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, you should take precautionary measures and see a doctor. If an injury develops several weeks after the accident and you did not seek medical attention, your claim to compensation could be in jeopardy.
Next, speak to an attorney sooner rather than later. The earlier you get started, the more compensation you may be able to obtain. We recommend hiring counsel before even talking to the insurance company.
Why can’t I just accept the insurance company’s offer?
Insurance companies are not out for your best interests. Claims agents are trained to get you admit fault and use strategies designed to minimize your offer. Having an attorney work with the insurance company on your behalf is almost always beneficial, as you may receive substantially more income.
What if I can’t afford a personal injury lawyer?
There are no upfront costs to hiring an attorney in personal injury law. Our firm offers free initial consultations, and we only get paid when you do. That means if we fail to secure you compensation, you don’t owe us a dime in attorney’s fees.
