Why Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

Common Questions About Personal Injury Cases
Of course, you can. But, you really should still speak to Chattanooga car wreck attorney about your case, especially if you’ve been injured in an accident.
Yes, you can. Just make sure you know your rights under Georgia or Tennessee car wreck or personal injury law. Keep in mind, the insurance company can use anything you say to an insurance adjuster against your claim.
You can if you don’t care who sees your confidential medical records. (By the way, you probably should care who sees your confidential medical records.)
Tennessee and Georgia use the modified comparative negligence system. That means a judge or jury will assign a percentage of fault for each driver in the Tennessee or Georgia car wreck and then award damages based upon that system.
However, under the modified comparative negligence system, if a car wreck victim is 50% or more at fault, the victim can collect nothing. To collect money, the judge or jury must find the car wreck victim 49% or less at fault.
Unlike “no-fault states”, car insurance companies do not pay your medical bills as you go, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. (The exception is if you carry something called “med-pay” on your own car insurance.)
If you have health insurance, submit your bills to your health insurance company. If you don’t have health insurance, you will need to arrange a payment plan with your doctor or hospital.
We know many doctors and physical therapists who will treat you if you don’t or can’t pay up front. Dennis and King can help you get medical care without upfront charges. Give us a call. We can help.
