How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer in Murfreesboro?

When you hire Weir & Kestner, you won’t incur any fees unless and until we secure a settlement or verdict in your case. We take pride in providing free consultations, allowing you to assess whether we fit your needs without any financial commitment.

What should I do after being hurt?

Try to stay calm while following these steps:

  1. Dial 911 to request both an ambulance and police assistance. Police can investigate the incident and file a report, while paramedics assess you for injuries.
  2. Capture numerous photos and videos of the scene.
  3. Collect contact information from witnesses.
  4. Seek evaluation at Urgent Care or your primary care physician within 24 hours. Retain all medical bills and doctor’s notes.
  5. Arrange a complimentary consultation with a Murfreesboro personal injury lawyer.

How long do I have to file a claim?

Typically, Tennessee grants personal injury victims a one-year window to file a claim, with the clock starting on the day of the incident. The deadline may be extended if the crash involves a government vehicle or a minor under 18 years old. Contact a Murfreesboro car accident lawyer for additional details.

What damages can I claim?

Many underestimate the extensive damages they can pursue in a personal injury claim.

Economic damages

Quantifiable losses supported by receipts fall under economic damages. These encompass:

  • Medical and hospital bills
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy costs
  • Expenses for prescription and over-the-counter medications
  • Bills for specialized care
  • Lost wages and job-related benefits
  • Property damage, such as to a car, computer, clothing, or phone

Non-economic (pain and suffering) damages

More subjective in nature, non-economic damages compensate for the mental and emotional changes in your life. These may include:

  • Development of anxiety or depression post-incident
  • Emotional distress during and after the injury
  • Diminished enjoyment of hobbies, work, or other activities
  • Feelings of isolation and shame if scarred or disfigured
  • Physical, emotional, and psychological pain and suffering
  • Adjustments required for permanent disability
  • Impact on personal and professional reputations

What should I look for in a good personal injury attorney?

Consider the following attributes when choosing the appropriate attorney to represent you:

  • Experience with your specific injury
  • Successful track record
  • Trustworthy reputation
  • Trial experience
  • Communication
  • Personal compatibility

We’ll fight the insurance company to get you maximum compensation

Our team of personal injury attorneys conducts a thorough investigation to understand all parts of your case. We strive to secure the compensation you rightfully deserve, and we resist any attempts by insurance companies to diminish your claim or deny payment. Through vigorous negotiations, we tirelessly pursue the optimal settlement on your behalf.

Leveraging our extensive knowledge of the law and the insurance industry, we advocate for your interests. When your needs are unmet, we assertively demonstrate our resolve by taking your case to trial.

Who’s liable for my injury?

One of the most critical services we provide is identifying all at-fault parties in your case. There may be multiple sources for compensation, and we explore all of them for you, including the following:

  • Other drivers
  • Property owners or managers
  • Government entities
  • Doctors or other medical professionals

How our injury attorneys prove liability

To secure a favorable settlement, your attorney must substantiate four key elements of negligence to establish liability.

1. Duty of care

Drivers, property owners, and others must uphold a duty of care toward those in their vicinity. This implies behaving like a reasonable person would to prevent harm to others. Demonstrating the duty of care establishes that the defendant should have taken different actions to protect you.

2. Breach of duty

Failure to meet the duty of care constitutes a breach. Your attorney must illustrate how the responsible party neglected their duty and endangered you and others.

3. Causation

Your lawyer must establish a clear link between the at-fault party’s failure in their duty and your resulting injuries. This connection is crucial for claiming compensation for your losses.

4. Damages

Your lawyer will present documented evidence supporting your claim for reimbursement of both economic and non-economic damages arising from your injuries.

What’s the personal injury lawsuit process?

Each case varies, but the general process of initiating a personal injury lawsuit unfolds as follows.

1. Contact the defendant(s)

Upon gathering evidence of the other party’s liability, we will inform them of your intent to file a claim against them.

2. Gather evidence

Our team diligently collects all pertinent evidence showcasing the responsible party’s involvement in your personal injury. We compile materials illustrating the extent of harm you suffered and the financial losses you have incurred and may continue to experience.

3. Negotiate out of court

We commence by seeking a resolution without the expenses and time associated with a trial. Negotiations may span days or weeks until an agreement aligning with your needs is reached.

4. Initiate court proceedings

If negotiations prove unsuccessful, we proceed to prepare and file a formal legal action with the appropriate court.

Why do I need to go to the doctor?

Undergoing a medical evaluation serves a dual purpose: it safeguards you from potential “silent injuries” that could pose severe risks, and it establishes a documented record of your condition. Completing this evaluation within 24-48 hours of the incident enhances your negotiating position with insurance companies.

Insurance companies may argue that your injuries stem from another source. However, possessing a clear medical record that directly links your injuries to the defendant’s negligence strengthens your case significantly.

Why should I hire Weir & Kestner?

At Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers, our entire team is focused on hearing your story and helping you get the medical care you need first. Once we know you are well taken care of, we will turn our focus on developing a plan to get the insurance companies off your back and secure maximum compensation. We take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will only owe us a cent once we successfully resolve your claim. We look forward to meeting you in our Murfreesboro office.
