Accidents That Require an Attorney
Accidents terrify us. In a split second, events beyond our control can irrevocably alter our lives. Injuries suffered as a result of accidents can leave you in perpetual pain, with growing stacks of medical bills and without the ability to return to work in order to pay off those bills. If you or a loved one suffered an injury as the result of negligence on the part of another party, you may be entitled to legal compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial pain and suffering. However, what kinds of injuries warrant retaining a law firm?
We list several such common types of accidents here. If you or a loved one has suffered any accident in the Knoxville area, contact an experienced law firm today. There is no such thing as a standard injury case.
For What Injuries Should I Hire an Accident Attorney?
The most common types of injuries that Knoxville car accident lawyers handle include:
- Car wrecks
- Wrongful death
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Defective or faulty products
Automobile accidents are the primary cause of personal injuries in the United States. Victims of such accidents often believe their insurance companies will recognize their pain and suffering and compensate them appropriately. Sadly, this often does not occur. Many times, you must retain an experienced personal injury attorney to obtain rightful compensation from your insurance carrier.
Wrongful death suits are legal actions brought by survivors of individuals who have died as the result of negligent actions by another party. Rules define who is entitled to bring a wrongful death lawsuit and complex formulas are used to determine the proper amount of compensation in such cases.
Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
When we place our elder family members in nursing homes, we do so expecting them to be looked after with a high standard of care. Often, however, nursing home staff members can be guilty of neglect, sexual assault, theft, and other abuses of power. An experienced firm can help family members of the abused fight back in such cases.
Defective or Faulty Products
Manufacturers and businesses that make and sell products have a legal obligation to ensure those products are safe for consumers when they are used as intended. When unwitting consumers are harmed by improperly designed or manufactured products, the companies responsible may be held liable for damages they suffer.
