Experienced Maryville Personal Injury Lawyers Help You Move Forward
More than 30 years protecting victims of negligence in Blunt County and throughout East Tennessee
Most people do not intentionally injure others, even in accidents. But when you suffer injuries due the negligence of others, you have the right to pursue compensation from all liable parties. If your injuries are relatively minor, you can often file an insurance claim to recover the expenses related to your injuries. You need to keep in mind, however, that insurance policy limits may prevent you from recovering all costs. And insurance companies may unfairly deny or reduce your claim, leaving you to pay expenses out-of-pocket. You can avoid these and other potential complications by talking to an experienced attorney before making the decision to file or settle an insurance claim.
It costs nothing to talk to Shepherd and Associates, P.C. about your accident before taking legal action that might deny you the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Experienced support for victims of motor vehicle and other accident injuries
According to the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security, there were 1,036 traffic-related fatalities in Tennessee in 2016. As of April, there have already been 256 traffic fatalities in 2017, and 8 of them have happened in Blount County. In fact, motor vehicle collisions represent the most common cause of injuries and death throughout the United States. But not all car accident lawyers have the experience and knowledge to address the specialized issues of each type of motor vehicle accident. I have three decades of experience helping victims injured in the following types of motor vehicle accidents:
- Car accidents: We provide a full range of support — including advising you on the effective handling of insurance claims, negotiating for fair insurance or out-of-court settlements and trying your case before a jury in court when necessary.
- Motorcycle accidents: We have the experience to combat the unfair prejudices against motorcyclists that can prevent them from receiving compensation they deserve after suffering severe injuries in these often-disastrous accidents.
- Trucking accidents: Our understanding of the trucking industry and state and federal commercial trucking laws provides the insight needed to conduct thorough investigations and go against powerful trucking companies and their attorneys.
While some Maryville personal injury lawyers focus solely on motor vehicle accidents, we also advocate on behalf of individuals who suffer injuries in other ways. For example, we can assist you if you sustain serious injuries from a slip and fall because a property owner failed to maintain safe premises.
