Recovery After A Personal Injury

Whether you have suffered a broken bone, head injury, back injury, burn injury, or spinal cord injury, you need:

  • Medical care
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Time to heal and adjust to your physical challenges
  • Legal help and advice

While it may not be first on your mind when suffering an injury, legal help is just as important as the right medical care. When you are injured, your financial needs will soon become just as evident as your physical needs. Money may not heal your injuries, but it will allow you to pay your bills, support your family, and even access new, adaptive technology, ramps, or other accommodations that may be necessary for you to thrive after your injury. You may also be unable to work, whether temporarily or permanently. You may need a modified van for transportation if you now use a wheelchair. You may need daily or periodic visits from personal care attendants, therapists, social workers, and other helpers.

Financial resources can bring these things within reach, and are therefore just as important as your doctor’s skills. Recovering physical and financially after an injury are equally important. At Herndon, Coleman, Brading, & McKee, LLP we focus on you and your needs after your injury. We listen to and observe our clients to best understand their needs, both physical and financial. We can help you get the compensation you deserve. In most cases, you won’t pay us unless we collect for you.

How We May Approach Your Accidental Injury

If one of our lawyers represents you after a car accident, slip-and-fall accident, or toxic exposure incident, we will start with a detailed investigation. This may include:

  • Review of all evidence that shows what happened, such as video surveillance footage
  • Accident reconstruction
  • Interviews with eyewitnesses
  • Collaboration with expert witnesses, such as medical specialists, occupational medicine experts, and/or life care planners

Our law firm has been a mainstay in East Tennessee for more than 95 years. We have a strong reputation for genuinely caring for our clients and for advocating for them in and out of the courtroom. Discovering and proving liability is a large part of what we do. We are ready to convince a mediator, adjustor, judge, or jury that the negligent party should compensate your clients. We prepare every case as if for trial. As a result, many cases settle in pretrial negotiations with generous settlements for our clients.

Tennessee Personal Injury FAQ

Getting the help you need for your personal injury case is what our lawyers at Herndon, Coleman, Brading, & McKee, LLP, do best. You can reach out to schedule a consultation. In the interim, you may find your questions answered below:

How do I know if I have a valid Tennessee personal injury claim? 

If you are injured due to another party’s negligent, reckless or deliberate actions, you may have a valid personal injury claim. Claims based on negligence are most common. Even if you are partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to recover damages as long as you are less than 50% responsible. One of our personal injury attorneys can evaluate your situation and help you understand whether your claim is viable.

What damages can I recover in a Tennessee personal injury case?

 Our main goal for your personal injury case is to help you recover economic damages. This means helping you recover compensation for any medical bills you may have had since your injury, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Medication
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical equipment
  • Nursing home care
  • Long-term disabilities

You may have also faced unemployment since your injury, which could make you eligible for compensation to cover the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Utility and mortgage bills
  • Family support

You may have also suffered noneconomic damages. These include things like:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Humiliation
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment from life
  • Worsening of prior injuries

At Herndon, Coleman, Brading, & McKee, LLP, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to recovering damages for your personal injury case.

What if the insurance company offers a settlement?

An insurance agent may reach out to you to offer you a settlement offer. While it may be tempting to take the first offer you are given in fear that you may not recover more in the future, our lawyers often find the first offer is well below a fair deal. You can have our lawyers negotiate with insurance companies so that you recover the maximum settlement offer possible. We believe a fair settlement offer can support your needs and help you recover financially.
