Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)Get Answers From a Skilled Clarksville Personal Injury Lawyer
Q:What does a personal injury lawyer Do?
A:A personal injury lawyer is a legal professional that individuals who have been injured physically, emotionally, or psychologically due to the negligence or intentional actions of another person, company, or entity. They will be able to review your case, provide legal guidance, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, file legal documents, represent you in court, and act as your legal advocate.
Q:What kinds of damages can I receive for my injury?
A:If your personal injury claim is successful, you may be eligible to receive compensation for a wide range of economic and non-economic damages including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earnings (both past and future), future related medical care, and more.
Q:Why should I hire a personal injury attorney to represent me?
A:While it is possible to represent yourself in your personal injury case, this is not recommended. Statistics show that 95% of personal injury cases are settled pre-trial. When considering whether or not to hire an injury lawyer, you should keep in mind that having someone on your side with experience can help ensure that your settlement is fair and takes into account not only past expenses, but also future expenses.
Q:How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
A:The lawyers at Pete Olson Injury Attorneys all operate on a "contingency fee" basis, meaning that we will not collect any attorneys fees until we have successfully secured compensation for you. Your success is extremely important to us!
Q:How do you win a personal injury claim?
A:Generally speaking, in order to win a personal injury case you must be able to prove the following: 1) The party you are suing is to blame for your injuries through breach of duty or negligence in some way; 2) The negligent party's actions or inaction resulted in your injuries; and 3) Your injuries have resulted in specific damages, whether monetary or non-monetary.
Q:How long will my injury case take to resolve?
A:Unfortunately, there is no way to accurately predict the timeline of your case. Every personal injury case is different and will vary in length depending on factors like the nature of your injuries, the amount of damages you are seeking, the complexity of applicable case law, the cooperation of the insurance company, the defendant's willingness to settle, and whether or not your case goes to trial. Some cases can reach a resolution in a few months, while others that involve catastrophic or life-changing injuries can potentially take years of litigation to reach a verdict or settlement. Our attorneys will advise you of your legal options and help you get a better understanding of what to expect.
Q:Will I have to go to court for my personal injury claim?
A:It is possible that you will need to appear in court for your personal injury case, however this is unlikely. The vast majority of personal injury claims do not go to court but are instead resolved in the form of an out-of-court settlement negotiated between the involved parties. It is only if a settlement cannot be reached that a lawsuit will need to be filed. While a trial can sometimes yield a higher monetary award, there is always the chance that you may lose and end up with nothing. Since there is no sure thing when it comes to trials, both parties typically want to avoid them. The best way to know what's best for your personal injury case is to hire an experienced lawyer. If your personal injury lawyer can get you a fair settlement for your injuries and damages without the need for a trial, there is no reason not to settle outside of court. But, if you're dealing with an insurance company that refuses to give you what you deserve, and your lawyer thinks you have a strong case, a trial may end up being your only option.
Q:How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Tennessee?
A:Tennessee has one of the shortest statutes of limitations in the nation when it comes to personal injury claims. Under Section 28-3-104 of the Tennessee Code, you typically have only one year from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit in civil court within this time period, you will effectively lose your right to sue and will be unable to pursue compensation for your injuries. Since investigating a personal injury case can sometimes take months on its own, it is critical you get an attorney involved as soon as possible after suffering an injury to guard your rights and ensure you are compliant with all applicable legal deadlines.
Q:How much is my personal injury claim worth?
A:Unfortunately, there is no standard answer to this question. The value of your case will vary depending on the details of your situation. Your eligible compensation will be determined by factors such as the type and severity of your injuries, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the level of negligence involved. It is best you speak to an attorney from our firm to get a more accurate estimate of your case's value.
Q:Should I accept the insurance company's settlement offer?
A:While it may be tempting to accept the insurance company's initial offer, it is important you first seek the advice of an experienced attorney who understands insurance company strategies and tactics. Insurance companies work to settle claims for as little as possible and will often offer claimants far less than they deserve. Our attorneys will work to maximize your settlement and pursue an amount that fully compensates you for your current and future expenses.
