Car Accident Lawyer in Knoxville

Representing Injured Clients Throughout Knox County

Car accidents change lives instantly, leaving the victim needing expensive medical treatment and unable to work. The financial stress is frustrating and leads many people to accept the first settlement offer, which may not be enough to cover your current and future medical needs, lost wages, and other damage. When you need legal advice, the Knoxville car accident lawyers at Menefee & Brown have more than 30 years of experience representing accident victims throughout Tennessee.

Effective Settlement Negotiations

Medical costs and lost wages often cause accident victims to want a fast settlement. Unfortunately, insurance companies use this to their advantage and employ delay tactics or try to offer less than the total value of your claim. They hope you will accept less than your claim is worth because you are counting on the settlement to pay bills.

We help our clients obtain compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical costs
  • Loss of wages
  • Property damage
  • Other related costs
  • Pain and suffering

Our Knoxville car accident attorneys understand that being willing to back up your claims is key to successful negotiation. Insurance companies pay settlements to avoid an expensive litigation process that ends with a verdict on behalf of the victim. Knowing that your attorney is ready to take the case to trial can be a substantial advantage during negotiations.

What is the Hit and Run Law in Tennessee?

Hit-and-run is a severe crime in Tennessee.

The law states that if you are involved in a car accident that results in property damage or personal injury, you must stop and exchange information with the other driver(s). If you fail, you could be facing criminal charges with a hit-and-run.

The penalties for hit-and-run in Tennessee can be severe. For example, if you face a hit-and-run conviction that results in property damage only, you could be sentenced to up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and fined up to $2,500.

Suppose you have a hit-and-run conviction that results in personal injury; you could be sentenced to up to 12 years in jail and fined up to $6,000.

In addition to the criminal penalties, the person you hit may sue you. If you are found responsible, you may have to pay for the other person's medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional damages.

If you are involved in an accident, staying calm and following the law is essential. Suppose you can stop and exchange information with the other driver(s).

If you cannot control or are involved in a hit-and-run, call the police immediately.

Here are some suggestions to help you avoid facing criminal charges with hit-and-run in Tennessee:

  • Stay calm and assess the situation.
  • Stop and exchange information with the other driver(s) if you can. If you cannot stop or are involved in a hit-and-run, call the police immediately.
  • Provide your name, address, and driver's license information to the other driver(s).
  • Get the other driver's name, address, and driver's license information.
  • Write down the other driver's vehicle's make, model, and license plate number.
  • If there are any eyewitnesses, get their names and contact information.
  • If there is any damage to your vehicle or the other driver's vehicle, take pictures of it.
  • If anyone is injured, call 911.

Following these tips can help avoid facing a criminal charge with hit-and-run in Tennessee.
