What types of evidence are important in traumatic brain injury cases?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can leave you with permanent and severe limitations, along with substantial and ongoing expenses. Proving the extent and effects of a TBI can be quite complicated, and gathering as much evidence as possible is crucial to obtaining just compensation. The following are examples of evidence often used to establish liability in these cases:

  • Police reports
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Medical records
  • Video and photographs of the accident scene

Insurance companies and defendants often challenge these claims and refuse to pay. I will counter their defenses and zealously fight for your interests.

How is liability determined in an auto accident?

Careless and inattentive drivers put everyone on the road at risk of severe injury. To establish a right to compensation if you were hurt in an accident, you must prove the other driver was at fault. Specifically, you need to show the other driver’s action or inaction caused the accident, and that the accident directly led to your injury. If both sides are partially at fault, as long as the other driver is more at fault than you, you can still collect damages. However, any award would be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.

What are common causes of trucking accidents?

The size and weight of commercial trucks can produce catastrophic injury and death when accidents occur. Many of these collisions are avoidable if appropriate precautions and rules are followed. When proper measures are ignored or neglected, one or more of these factors might lead to an accident:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Poorly maintained brakes
  • Excess loads
  • Wide turns

I am highly skilled at litigating these complex and difficult cases and will not allow insurance companies to pressure you into an unfair settlement.

Why do slip and fall injuries happen?

While slip and fall injuries are often associated with the elderly, very young or frail, a fall can happen anywhere and to anyone. These accidents are typically attributable to someone in control of a property failing to exercise reasonable care, and allowing the following types of conditions to exist:

  • Spilled food or drink
  • Uneven pavement
  • Dark walkways
  • Broken steps and handrails
  • Wet floors

Regardless of the specific harm you suffered, you ought to receive compensation if a property owner’s negligence was the proximate cause of your injury, and I will identify every party potentially responsible for your accident.

What damages can be recovered in wrongful death lawsuits?

Under Tennessee law, certain close family members, and the deceased’s estate, may pursue damages against anyone who negligently or intentionally caused the death of their loved one. These damages may include:

  • Medical expenses and pain and suffering prior to death
  • Lost income the victim would have been expected to provide
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost emotional support and care

You deserve the opportunity to rebuild your life after such a tragic event, and I will be your strong advocate throughout the legal process.
