Were you or a loved one severely hurt in a motor vehicle accident in Memphis? Did a negligent driver cause you unexpected and unnecessary harm that has impacted your health and finances? If so, be sure to seek medical treatment and contact an experienced injury lawyer to discuss your rights before you accept any settlement offer from an insurance company.

According to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, there were more than 1,000 motor vehicle deaths and more than 40,000 motor vehicle injuries in 2017. Despite advancements in motor vehicle security features for newer model vehicles, these numbers, unfortunately, continue to rise on an annual basis. Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents can be incredibly severe and leave injured victims to suffer for a long time to come. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you need to take action now.

A motor vehicle accident can leave a victim injured and in financial distress. You may have medical bills accumulating, and if you have to miss time from work, you are probably worried about how you will pay your bills while you keep up with other daily expenses. If another driver’s carelessness caused the injuries you suffer, you might be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, wages lost from work, rehabilitation, and other damages.

A Memphis motor vehicle accident attorney at Gold Law Firm can help you understand your rights and will seek the maximum amount of compensation possible for your claim. Contact us at (901) 244-5003 to schedule a free consultation today.

Why You Need A Car Accident Lawyer

Tennessee is a fault-based accident state, meaning that the driver liable for the crash is also responsible for the costs associated with resulting injuries, medical costs, property damage, and other expenses. While the state holds this standard to make compensation for motor vehicle accident victims more “fair,” it can complicate the claims process. An experienced attorney can help you to navigate the legal and insurance systems so that you can get the maximum compensation owed to you by law. The motor vehicle accident lawyers at Gold Law Firm know how to best represent you while you focus on getting your life back to normal.

Motor vehicle accidents nearly all involve insurance companies. You may have already received a call from the other driver’s claims adjuster. While these adjusters like you to believe that they are trying to help you, know that their only job is to settle claims for as little money as possible. While a quick settlement may seem tempting, it can leave you without enough money to cover your bills. Do not let this happen to you. A knowledgeable motor vehicle accident attorney can thoroughly evaluate the damages available to you in your claim and negotiate with the insurance company so that you get a complete settlement. At Gold Law Firm, we take this a step further, because if the insurance company does not want to offer you what your claim is worth in a settlement, we will take your case to trial and fight.

All of the necessary steps in a car accident claim—including navigating the fault-based accident system and dealing with the insurance companies—require gathering the proper evidence in your case. This means gathering all medical bills, police reports, and photos, tracking down witnesses, and more. All for these tasks can become a full-time job, which is precisely why a knowledgeable lawyer and their experienced legal team are best equipped to complete these activities. It is our job to obtain medical records so that you do not miss any possible compensation, to dig for important information about your accident, and much more. These are the details that can make a significant difference in your case and result in a significantly higher settlement or verdict than if you attempt to handle these tasks on your own.

Why Choose Gold Law Firm?

At Gold Law Firm, we have more than 30 years of trial experience with a winning record for our clients. We pride ourselves in the personal representation of injured victims so that you get the maximum amount that is due for your injuries and other damages. Many Memphis attorneys accept too many cases, and their personal injury practices are simply factories that produce lower settlement offers for clients. Here at Gold Law Firm, we prepare every case with the amount of information needed to go to trial so that you are ready for every possible scenario. This means that you will be in the best possible position for recovery.

At Gold Law Firm, our motor vehicle accident lawyers have represented thousands of people with a level of professional success that has earned the firm commendations such as the 2019 Martindale Hubbell Client Champion Gold rating, the 2018 Top 3 Personal Injury Lawyers in Memphis, 5-star reviews on Avvo, and more. Gold Law Firm is the place where you will find legal representation with professionalism and excellence while you are treated with the highest levels of attention and courtesy. We take pride in helping members of the Memphis community who are harmed by the negligence of others, and we will use the full extent of our resources to fight for you.

Won’t my car insurance cover everything I need after an accident?

Your insurance company may offer some compensation and assistance after a motor vehicle accident, but if you want to ensure that you build the best possible case for your interests, you need personal attention and the most experienced attorneys available. Insurance companies are most interested in their bottom lines, so they often will not spend the amount of time required to build a complete case for you. You only have one shot at recovering what your case is worth, so be sure to select an attorney who will fight for your interests.

I was partially responsible for the accident—can I still recover damages?

Yes. If you were partially at fault, you might still be eligible for damages, but they may be limited. Review the specifics of your case with an experienced attorney like the team at Gold Law Firm to get a full understanding of your ability to recover.

What is “comparative negligence?”

Comparative negligence is a legal term that deals with the division of fault when it comes to any kind of accident. Tennessee goes by something called “modified comparative negligence,” which means that if you were 50% or more at fault for an accident, you could not recover any damages. A skilled motor vehicle accident attorney can assist you with your case and help you establish percentages of fault if this is a concern in your accident.

What is a statute of limitations?

The statute of limitations is a law in effect to limit the amount of time you can wait before bringing a cause of action for any injury. Here in Tennessee, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, which include motor vehicle accident claims, is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action to recover compensation. Because evidence tends to disappear as time progresses, it is always best to start your claim as soon as possible after your accident rather than waiting.

What can I do after a car accident to protect my rights?

After an accident, there are several steps you can take to protect your rights. First, make sure to call the police and get a police report. Second, be sure to have any injuries looked over by medical professionals. It is difficult to seek damages for injuries unless you can show the driver in question caused them. Third, do not make any potentially incriminating statements about the accident. Say as little as possible so that you do not accidentally admit fault. Fourth, if you can, gather witness statements and contact information at the scene of your accident. As soon as possible after your accident, contact a knowledgeable motor vehicle accident attorney to begin your case.

What if I cannot afford to hire a lawyer?

At Gold Law Firm, we want to ensure that every accident victim has access to the best legal representation. Do not worry if you feel you cannot afford a lawyer. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation, and we can review your case. You pay nothing for our services unless you recover a settlement or positive verdict in your case.

What About Insurance Company Disputes?

Insurance companies use various ploys to delay, deny or diminish claims. Our lawyers are skilled at deflecting these efforts and getting you the compensation you need, in full and without delay.

“I got David Gold’s name from a friend. My van did not have a lot of damage and the insurance company tried to tell me that I was not hurt. … Rather than take their money, I called attorney David Gold. He explained my legal rights to me and what compensation I could receive from the wreck for me and my children.” — Read more about Jamia’s case.
