What Compensation can I get?
Compensation is a particular amount awarded to a victim who suffered injuries and property damage due to the negligent actions of another individual. Some car accident claims result in thousands of dollars in compensation, while others can lead to millions of dollars in a verdict or settlement. The value of your claim will depend on the particular damages you’ve experienced. We work with our clients to calculate the costs they’ve faced, including medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. The greater the injury and its cost, the more you will seek in a claim. Here are some examples of the damages you can demand in a personal injury claim…
- Lost wages from missed time at work
- Medical expenses now and in the future related to accident injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property Loss
The Caudill Law Firm understands the importance of moving quickly to assist accident victims, especially in Tennessee, where the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is only one year. Documentation is key to proving your case. Once you have received medical care, it is important that you contact a personal injury attorney ASAP following your car wreck because evidence can quickly disappear, witnesses’ memory diminishes, and visible injuries fade. We do the work of building your case. This includes conducting interviews, consulting experts, research, depositions, and trial preparation. Many personal injury claims never go to trial; they are settled when the other side makes an acceptable offer. However, we still prepare every case to go all the way. This lets the other side know we’re serious and positions your case for a better settlement offer.
We accept cases on contingency, so you do not pay attorney fees unless we recover compensation for you. Allow us to help you hold the responsible parties accountable for the consequences of their negligence or recklessness.
SHOULD I EXPECT A SETTLEMENT OR A TRIAL?
Most car accident claims are resolved through settlement, which happens when both sides agree to a dollar amount before trial. The settlement process normally involves extensive communication between the attorneys of both the defendants (the at-fault parties) and the plaintiff (the injured person). Settlements still involve significant fact-finding and case-building to show the defendants and their representatives that the plaintiff’s case is strong.
If a settlement is not reached, the dispute may go to trial, where both sides make their case in front of a jury. A jury will determine whether the defendants should be made to pay the plaintiff’s damages and, if so, how much the plaintiff is owed.
Regardless of whether a case goes to trial or is settled, we believe that preparation is the key to a successful claim. The other side needs to know that an attorney is prepared to take a claim all the way to trial if necessary. We build each case with this in mind, so our clients can be sure that we are ready for any situation.
LET US DEAL WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANIES
If your personal injury claim involves insurance companies, it is important to understand the difference between working with your own insurance company and working with someone else’s insurance company. In general, you should cooperate with your own insurance company and avoid anyone from another person’s insurance company.
Your own insurance company will want more information about the accident, and you should work with them to the best of your ability. If you’re contacted by an insurance company that isn’t your own, do not speak to them. They want you to make a statement, which they’ll use to minimize or deny the payment. The only thing you should tell another person’s insurance company is that they can call your attorney.
At the Caudill Law Firm, we deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. Let us deal with insurance companies so you can focus on your health.
