Filing a claim for compensation following a car accident | Bart Durham Injury Law

Filing a claim for compensation following a car accident

Even the smallest error on the roadways could lead to a massive incident. A distracted driver or negligent motorist could greatly impact the lives of the victims involved or even the lives of the victim's family members if they did not survive the crash. Our firm understands how tragic an automobile accident could be for Tennessee residents. A victim's suffering could go beyond just the injuries involved, and it is important they understand their legal remedies to recover from their losses and damages.

Following a car accident, a victim might be overwhelmed by how much the incident has impacted their life. The collision might have caused severe injuries and they might be spending much of their time receiving medical care. In addition, they have been missing work in order to recuperate from their injuries. In some cases, this might mean missing work for a great length of time. While it is important to recover and go through any recommended rehabilitation, the situation could mean a significant amount of lost wages.

While it is crucial to address any medical and health needs and concerns relating to the accident immediately, it is also important to consider any legal options. Our attorneys understand that it can be challenging to navigate the legal system during the emotional time the accident caused. This is why our attention to detail and guidance helps victims understand their situation and what actions are available.

Filing a personal injury claim is a civil action that could provide the injured victim with compensation. The monetary award could be used to cover expenses such as medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and other related damages. In order to initiate this cause of action, it is important to begin the investigation process, which helps establish cause and prove liability.

The impact caused by an automobile collision is not often alleviated by a sum of money, although compensation can help put victims in a better position or make them whole. Our firm's car accident overview could help better explain the options available to car accident victims. Furthermore, it could help them address common issues while also help them protect their rights and interests in the situation.
