What Constitutes a Personal Injury Accident in Tennessee

flora and kentA personal injury claim is a type of legal claim called “negligence.” When someone is found to be negligent, it means they can be held legally responsible for any injuries and financial expenses that result.

To win on a negligence claim in Tennessee, you must be able to prove four elements:

  • That the defendant owed you a legal duty;
  • That the defendant breached that duty by failing to act reasonably under the circumstances;
  • That you suffered actual damages; and
  • That your injuries were caused as a result of the defendant’s breach.

If you can prove the opposing party’s negligence, you can receive valuable compensation to help you recover from your injuries. When you are involved in a personal injury accident, you want an attorney that knows exactly what to do. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you analyze your case, gather evidence, and do what needs to be done to help you prove your negligence claim.

Flora Templeton Stuart handles negligence claims day in and day out. She knows how to successfully navigate a personal injury claim from beginning to end, and she is just the attorney for you.

Cases We Handle

A personal injury case can arise in a wide variety of situations. No two cases will ever be precisely the same. That’s why it’s imperative to have a Tennessee personal injury lawyer in your corner who has experience handling many different types of cases.

Flora Templeton Stuart has extensive experience representing clients in a wide array of personal injury cases. No matter what your case requires, you can rest assured knowing that our team has the knowledge and experience necessary to represent your interests.

Car Accidents

Flora Investigating A Car WreckIn 2019, there were 204,673 motor vehicle crashes in the state of Tennessee. 48,420 of these resulted in injuries.

Unfortunately, however, a car accident can result in more than just serious physical injury.

After a car accident, victims are often left with substantial medical bills, property damage, emotional trauma, and lost income and earning capacity as they recover from their injuries.

If you are dealing with the repercussions of a car accident due to the wrongful or negligent actions of someone else, you may be entitled to relief. Contact Tennessee car accident attorney Flora Templeton Stuart to discuss your case.

Commercial Trucking Accidents

The wreckage left behind in the aftermath of a Tennessee commercial trucking accident can be devastating. Due to their size alone, semi-truck accidents can be significantly more dangerous than car accidents. Additionally, commercial truck drivers are frequently on the road for long periods of time, which can lead to dangerous conditions that are more likely to result in collisions.

In fact, some of the most common causes of truck accidents in Tennessee include:

  • Following improperly,
  • Lane departures,
  • Improper lane changes, and
  • Drivers that are apparently asleep or fatigued.

When a truck driver’s negligence leads to an accident, the results can be severe and life-threatening.

Our Tennessee semi-truck accident lawyers can help you get the compensation you need to recover and hold drivers accountable to make our highways a safer place.

Motorcycle Accidents

Out of nearly 400,000 Tennessee residents licensed to ride a motorcycle in 2019, 7% of riders were involved in a motorcycle accident. Of the total motorcycle accidents in 2019, 152 were fatal.

Though motorcycles are statistically more prone to accidents than passenger car vehicles, the fact remains that riding is a thrilling experience that you just can’t get in a car. However, the rules of the road should not change simply because you are on a motorcycle. If you sustain injuries due to the actions of a negligent motorist, you need competent representation to get you the compensation and relief you deserve.

In our over 40 years in practice, we have represented countless motorcyclists, doing so successfully in over 90% of cases. We are passionate about representing motorcyclists, and we want to help you too.

Pedestrian Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one pedestrian was killed in a traffic crash every 88 minutes in 2017. As a pedestrian, it is important to take precautions to prevent involvement in a traffic-related accident. However, the burden is not only yours.

Drivers owe pedestrians a legal duty to drive safely in a reasonable manner in an effort to prevent pedestrian accidents. In fact, motorists on Tennessee roads are required by law to exercise due care when in the presence of pedestrians. When a driver breaches that duty, resulting in an accident, injured pedestrians may be entitled to relief.

If you or a loved one has sustained injuries at the hands of a negligent driver, contact Flora Templeton Stuart’s pedestrian accident attorneys today.

Bicycle Accidents

Despite calls to protect bicyclists on Tennessee roads, bicycle-related accidents continue to be a serious concern each year. In 2018, there were 378 bicycle-related traffic crashes in the State of Tennessee. This number increased to 394 in 2019.

Common causes of bicycle-related traffic accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers,
  • Failure to yield,
  • Drunk driving, and
  • Failure to properly share a lane with bicyclists.

Bike-related traffic accidents can result in severe injuries, including fractures, concussions, internal injuries, and spinal cord, neck, and back injuries. If a motorist’s negligent driving causes injuries to you while you are on your bike, you may have a claim for relief. Contact Tennessee bicycle accident attorney Flora Templeton Stuart to discuss your case and see how we can help you recover.

At Flora Templeton Stuart, we’ve seen nearly every case in the book. We’re confident that we have the knowledge and experience necessary to take on your case.

Will I Receive a Settlement or Go to Trial?

flora handing over settlement checkUnfortunately, there’s really no easy answer as to whether your case will result in a settlement or go to trial. Each case is different.

More often than not, a personal injury case will end in some sort of out-of-court settlement. However, this is not always the case. Depending on the complexity of your situation and the willingness of opposing parties to settle, trial may become necessary.

We will fight for your rights to the best of our abilities no matter what. We will settle your case if that is what is in your best interest. However, we are prepared to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes to get you the compensation you are entitled to.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Tennessee Injury Lawyer?

The aftermath of a personal injury can be time-consuming and stressful. At Flora Templeton Stuart, we don’t want financial pressures to add to that stress. That’s why our Tennessee personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis.

This means that when you hire us, you don’t owe us any fees unless we are able to successfully recover compensation in your case.
