In 2019, Tennessee traffic deaths increased to their highest rate in over 10 years. While there are many causes of an accident, almost all accidents are due to the negligence or reckless behavior of another driver.
A good car accident attorney does not wait to investigate the case. We know how to take the lead and get right to work for you. We take witness statements early in the process, so you won’t have trouble proving your case later. While state law only requires the at-fault driver to carry $25,000 in insurance, our Knoxville personal injury lawyers look for alternative forms of insurance to pay for the injury because we know the minimum limits insurance policy will, at times, not be enough. We advise our clients of the tricks that insurance companies use to reduce settlements and stay a step ahead of the insurance company. Obtaining help from a responsive motor vehicle accident attorney to manage your claims can have a significant impact on the amount of your pay out.Trucking Accidents
It was recently reported that trucking accidents have reached their highest level in 30 years, according to data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers represent the victims of the negligence of both truck drivers and companies. A trucking accident or truck wreck claim generally includes any form of larger commercial vehicle including tractor-trailers, dump trucks, semis, garbage trucks, commercial vans, etc. Trucks often cause a great deal more damage than ordinary cars. Because of this statistic, trucking companies often carry more insurance than the average driver on the road. In the most serious injury and deadly cases, the trucking company immediately sends out a rapid response team that begins making their case against you. This is why it is important to have an experienced trucking accident lawyer involved as soon as possible. Having an experienced lawyer on your side will ensure you develop the strongest case to prove the fault of not only the truck driver but also the trucking company. Our Knoxville personal injury lawyers have that experience and know how to investigate the company for their safety failures.
Our experienced wrongful death lawyers have taken cases all the way up to the Tennessee Supreme Court and won. If a family member has passed away based on the negligence or conduct of another person or entity, you may be entitled to damages. It’s our job as wrongful death attorneys to determine the extent of those damages based on your claim. In your case you must prove the lost value of life. This is very complicated and requires a team of experts. Damages in a wrongful death suit can include loss of support, any medical and funeral expenses, and the loss of consortium. Our Knoxville personal injury attorneys won a Tennessee Supreme Court case that held that the spouse has priority in bringing the claim over other family members.Workers’ Compensation
When it comes to workers’ compensation claims, navigating the process takes an experienced hand. Our workers’ compensation lawyers care. Most of our workers’ compensation client calls begin with “I’m calling because my workers’ compensation claim was denied.” Sometimes the claim was denied just because many Workers’ Compensation Carriers expect that if they deny your claim without any good reason, you will give up on it. It is important to get in touch with experienced attorneys early in your claim. The most common mistake that we see injured workers make is that they go to the insurance company’s handpicked doctor prior to consulting an attorney. That doctor is there to help the insurance company deny your claim. They will do it by claiming that your injury is a preexisting condition or that doctor will question your credibility. If we are involved early, our Knoxville personal injury attorneys can help you avoid these traps.Social Security Disability
Every year, the Social Security Administration denies approximately 60 to 70 percent of the disability claims that it receives. You need a Social Security Disability attorney after you have applied for benefits and have been denied. The attorneys at Brown and Roberto are here to help with the appeal of your denial. With years of experience representing social security disability claims, we understand the information the judge considers most important and work with you to gather that information to make your claim as thorough as possible.Premise Liability
Like most personal injury cases, Premise Liability cases operate on the notion that a property owner was negligent to the point of causing harm to someone on their property. Our premise liability attorneys have successfully worked on a variety of premise claims from slip and fall accidents, elevator accidents, amusement park ride accidents, drowning accidents at a pool and more. The most important thing a premise liability lawyer does is investigate the claim to definitively say that the property owner in question knowingly did not maintain a safe environment and did not remediate the danger posed, ultimately resulting in the injury of a person on their property.Motorcycle Accidents
The most recent NHTSA Motorcycle Accident statistics report that motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die in a crash than occupants of cars, and five times more likely to be injured. Our motorcycle accident lawyers understand what you go through when you are injured in a motorcycle wreck. The injuries are often horrific. The best motorcycle accident attorneys contact witnesses soon after you hire them. Witnesses can make or break your case. The other driver will try to excuse their own conduct by claiming they did not see you. At trial they will try to exploit stereotypes about motorcyclists, and we are always one step ahead, working for you, to ensure they don’t do that.Dog Bite Claims
Like many other areas of personal injury, your ability to move quickly and work with an experienced lawyer after a dog bite will position you for the most compensation you could be awarded. We have represented clients with dog bite claims and know the important factors to consider when collecting evidence for a claim. Important facts in a dog bite claim include whether the dog is of a notoriously vicious breed, whether the dog has attacked anyone before and whether the dog has an identifiable owner.Personal Injury Claims
Our law firm has extensive experience in and continues to focus on personal injury claims. Most types of claims that our Knoxville personal injury lawyers take have been discussed above, however, you may have questions that our personal injury attorneys can answer about other types of injuries.
