3 Signs You Need to Call a Nashville Auto Accident Attorney
Not every car accident victim needs an attorney, but the vast majority of people who were injured due to another driver’s negligence can benefit from having a legal advocate on their side.
If you were recently involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, use these three signs to determine whether calling a car accident law firm is the right move for you and your family:
You or someone you love was injured in the accident.
Car accidents can cause injuries that range from minor—bruises, cuts, and sore muscles—to moderate—broken bones, lacerations, and torn ligaments—to severe—brain injuries, paralysis, and internal bleeding. All of these injuries have one thing in common—they can require medical treatment, hospitalization, and prescription medications as part of a treatment regimen. And even if you or a loved one has insurance coverage, you may find that you’re still responsible for a significant amount of the expenses—and you may not have the money to pay for those expenses.
Matt Hardin Law’s team will fight to help you get compensation for your current and future medical expenses. We know that medical bills can add up significantly over time, so it’s our goal to make sure you get the treatment you need without hurting your own finances.
The accident left you or your loved one unable to work.
Whether you’re the primary wage earner in your household or your loved one who was injured in the accident fills that role, being unable to work due to a debilitating injury can be devastating for your family. You depend on regular paychecks to keep up with your day-to-day expenses, and losing even a single paycheck can be financially devastating. Many accident victims go weeks, months, or even years without being able to work due to the disabling nature of their injuries.
If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to suffer the financial consequences that come when you’re unable to work for extended periods of time. Our attorneys can analyze your current and future lost wages and help you recover that money. In addition, we can also help you file for Social Security Disability if your injury is expected to keep you out of work for more than one year.
The insurance company denied your claim.
People purchase insurance to cover their potential expenses after a car accident. But in order to maximize their profits, many insurance companies reduce or deny settlements to accident victims—even when they played no role in causing the accident and are facing significant expenses. Insurance companies often use a variety of reasons to reduce or deny settlements, ranging from incomplete paperwork to a lack of evidence. And in some cases, settlements are denied for no reason at all.
If the insurance company isn’t giving you a fair settlement for your accident-related expenses, the Nashville car accident attorneys at Matt Hardin Law can negotiate with them on your behalf. We know the tricks of the trade, and we know what it takes to build claims that get victims like you the results you want.
You Don’t Owe Us Money Unless We Get Money for You
We know that many accident victims are hesitant to call attorneys in the aftermath of their injuries. Whether they’re worried about paying attorney’s fees, high hourly rates, or signing contracts before they even discuss their case, the process of getting an attorney may seem intimidating.
At Matt Hardin Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t charge any upfront fees for our services, and in fact, we only get paid if you get paid. In addition, our attorneys are always available to discuss your case as a free consultation with no obligations.
