What Can I Get Compensation For?
In addition to having the potential to cause serious, life-changing injuries, car accidents can also put innocent victims in serious financial binds. Medical bills for life-saving surgeries and hospitalizations, not to mention long periods of physical rehabilitation, can add up and overwhelm many people’s insurance policies with sky-high out-of-pocket expenses. In addition, many car accident victims are too hurt to work for months or even years due to injuries and disabilities—and that means a loss of the paychecks they depend on. At Matt Hardin Law, our Memphis car accident lawyers make it their goal to help injured victims get the compensation they need to focus on recovering from their accidents as quickly and fully as possible. If you were recently injured in a Tennessee car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, we want to help you get the money you deserve.

Common Auto Accident Consequences and Expenses
Some of the most common accident-related expenses we’ve helped our clients receive compensation for include:
- Medical bills
The average car accident victim who requires medical attention may face medical bills that he or she has no way of paying off—especially if the victim doesn’t carry sufficient health insurance. Medical bills can cause significant damage to many family’s personal finances, but at Matt Hardin Law, we don’t believe innocent victims should have to pay for the costs of an accident that wasn’t their fault. That’s why we do our best to help our victims get full compensation.
- Lost wages
The vast majority of people in Tennessee rely on their paychecks every week to put food on their table and keep their families clothed and sheltered. So when a car accident takes away their abilities to work, they may be left without any resource or means to provide for their loved ones. Our attorneys understand that losing even a single paycheck can be devastating to your family, and that’s why we’ll fight to make sure you are compensated for any current or future lost wages.
- Vehicle repairs
Accidents that cause serious injuries also often cause severe damage to the vehicles involved. People whose cars are damaged in accidents may be left without reliable transportation or the ability to get to and from work reliably—and that can interfere with their ability to maintain their jobs. If your vehicle was severely damaged in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for expensive repairs out of your own pocket. We’ll work to get you the money you need to fix your car as soon as possible.
- Pain and suffering
There are some consequences of car accidents that are hard to put a price tag on—including the mental and emotional consequences. Not only are car accidents physically painful, but they can also cause psychological disturbances, such as depression, anxiety, and even a fear of driving. The pain and suffering experienced by auto accident victims like you can be devastating and affect your quality of life—and that’s why we take it seriously when we build your claim.
You have a lot of things to worry about after a car accident, but money shouldn’t be one of them. At Matt Hardin Law, our Memphis auto accident lawyers have helped countless victims just like you get full compensation for their medical bills and lost wages, and it’s our goal to help reduce the stress of the accident as much as possible. Your priority should be getting better—not worrying about how you’re going to pay your bills or replace your lost income.
