While the vast majority of motor vehicle accidents in Tennessee are so-called “fender-benders,” the reality is that any given car wreck has the potential to cause serious injuries to those involved, or even fatalities. Issues such as drunk driving, distracted driving, and drowsy driving are still prevalent on the roads and highways in our country. For those who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, pursuing financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit may be an option.
With all of the damages that can arise in a car accident, Tennessee residents can be left with an ever-growing stack of bills from just one incident. Medical bills for serious injuries, in particular, can mount quickly, as those who suffer these injuries are oftentimes facing weeks or even months of medical treatment, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. Why should an innocent victim be the one to shoulder these financial burdens?
In a personal injury lawsuit, injured victims have a chance to hold the negligent or reckless party who caused the motor vehicle accident accountable. If the injured party can prove that the other party caused the accident, leading to the injuries in question and that the injuries led to compensable damages, then there is a chance to win the case and recover much needed compensation.
