Family Compensated for Injuries Sustained in Murfreesboro Car Accident

In February of 2023, a Smyrna family was driving on Medical Center Parkway in Murfreesboro, Tennessee when a negligent driver ignored a stop sign and entered their path of travel.  The negligent vehicle was cited for failure to yield and was in clear violation of multiple state statutes, including  T.C.A. § 55-8-136 (Drivers to exercise due care) and T.C.A. § 55-8-197- (Failure to Yield the Right of Way).  The impact was severe.  Our client, who is pictured below, was the driver who was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by first responders.  The impact injured all three family members.

Family Compensated for Injuries Sustained in Murfreesboro Car Accident

All three family members were forced to visit the St. Thomas Rutherford ER.  After being diagnosed with several different injuries, including severe soft tissue injuries, the family sought care with a Smyrna chiropractor.  Chiropractic care after a car accident is a popular and often effective way to treat injuries.

As we always do, we prepare all cases as if they will be going to court.  After our clients were discharged from treatment, we performed a damages analysis before filing suit.  This consists of calculating all past/future economic damages, while also projecting past/future noneconomic.  The biggest factor is coming up with a range of what a jury might pay in Rutherford County where the accident occurred.

In Tennessee, the defendant’s insurance carrier does not have to reveal what their insurance limits are.  Prior to filing a lawsuit, we issued a settlement demand based on our damages analysis.  There was a lot of back and forth because insurance companies did not want to pay without a fight.  But, with a rock-solid case and damages report, the liability carrier offered fair compensation and the family agreed to settle their claims without litigation.
