Zealous And Reliable Representation Fighting For You After An Auto Accident
The challenges most people face after an accident don’t just come in the form of physical and psychological injuries that prevent you from going to work or attending to things at home. Many people experience pushback from insurance representatives, difficulty understanding the process of getting from one step to the next and the stress of trying to figure out how to pay bills all while making ends meet. At Powell | Klausing, we not only understand what you’re going through, but want to help as well.
If you were injured in an auto accident in Nashville or a surrounding area, we are here to listen to your story, address your concerns and answer any questions you have about what your next steps should be, and what we need to do to help you reach your goals. We are ready and able to fight for your rights at the negotiation table just as well as we are inside the courtroom.
Helping You Recover The Compensation You Deserve
Serious car accidents can put huge financial strains on victims and their families because they often cause people to miss work, result in large hospital and ongoing medical bills, and in cases of wrongful death, an auto wreck may also cause a family to lose out on future income. Thankfully, in Tennessee, that financial burden is not one the victim has to bear.
Tennessee is an at-fault state, which means that the party that caused the accident should pay for the damage caused to a victim. At Powell | Klausing, we have handled numerous motor vehicle accidents cases over the years and in doing so, we have seen negligence in all of its forms. We know how it can financially impact your life now and in the future, which is why we consider seeking damages that meet your financial needs.
Compensation may include:
- Economic damages – This refers to the quantifiable losses a victim and their loved ones suffered. It may include past and future medical bills, car repairs and loss of earning capacity, among others.
- Noneconomic damages – These include post-traumatic events, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
In cases of gross negligence, at-fault parties may have to pay punitive damages. It’s important to understand, however, that these types of damages are meant to be a punishment, and as such, the value varies depending on the circumstances of your situation and whether the judge – or the opposing side – considers the amount to be acceptable.
We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients receive the full and fair compensation they need after an accident. We carefully evaluate cases to determine if seeking punitive damages – in addition to compensatory damages – is necessary. We will take all current and future financial costs into consideration when seeking damages to ensure you are getting the compensation you need to move on with your life. We are passionate advocates for our clients so if we feel a settlement offer is not in your best interests, we will be honest and let you know. We will then zealously advocate for you until we secure fair compensation.
