Just about any significant issue has some myths surrounding it, and car accidents are no exception. Unfortunately, what we believe about these incidents may be very different from the reality of the situation. Those who have just experienced their first car accident and have never been involved in a legal situation are especially vulnerable to the many misconceptions that surround car accidents.

We hope to clear up some of the misinformation surrounding car accidents in Tennessee. Our attorneys believe that doing so helps victims develop a better understanding of the legal solutions available in the aftermath of a car accident. This is especially beneficial for victims that have suffered severe injuries in a vehicle crash caused by negligence.

Delayed injury symptoms: Many think that they cannot pursue a legal claim if their injuries do not manifest right away. In most cases, this is not true. It is possible to file a claim weeks or maybe even months after an accident.

Insurance always pays: Insurance companies do not like to let go of their money unless they have no choice. This means that your insurer may deny your claim or delay your payment. A lawyer can deal with an insurer on the victim’s behalf to improve the odds of a fair payout.

Driver cooperation: While the driver responsible for your accident and your injuries may appear to be cooperative at first, this relationship could disintegrate if you try to get compensation without legal help. Most car accidents cannot typically be resolved in such a manner.

As you can see, car accidents are often more complicated than you may believe, especially when the other motorist does not want to admit fault. Please review our website for additional information about Tennessee car accidents.
