A serious personal injury can happen to anyone, suddenly and abruptly, at almost any time. You could easily be injured by another driver’s negligence, for example, in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. With 11 million annual visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Dollywood, and the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort, all in Sevier County, there are plenty of opportunities for negligence and injuries. If you become the injured victim of another driver’s negligence in Tennessee, to receive compensation for medical expenses and other losses related to your injury – compensation you are entitled to by law – you must arrange at once to discuss your case with a Tennessee personal injury attorney at Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter.
More than 1,200 people died in Tennessee traffic crashes in 2020, and thousands more were severely injured. If you are the injured victim of a negligent driver, let a Tennessee car accident attorney at Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company for the compensation you need. If your personal injury claim is disputed, and an out-of-court settlement isn’t available, we will take your car accident case to court, tell your side of the story, and ask the jurors to order the payment of your compensation.
Every traffic accident is a potential catastrophe, of course, but statistically, commercial truck accidents are the most serious traffic collisions. A fully-loaded commercial truck may weigh forty or more tons; a car usually weighs about 3,000 pounds. Most car-vs.-truck accident injuries and fatalities are sustained by the occupants of the cars – not the trucks. Truck accidents are frequently the cause of long-term and disabling injuries that require a lifetime of medical care – and medical bills. If you are injured in a collision with a commercial truck anywhere in this state, a Tennessee truck accident attorney at Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter will fight on your behalf to recover the compensation you need and deserve.
If you ride a motorcycle in Tennessee, you already know that wearing a helmet, keeping your bike maintained, and following the traffic rules are basic safety measures, but even a cautious motorcyclist can be injured by another person – a negligent, reckless, or intoxicated driver – in a motorcycle crash. After a motorcycle collision, and particularly if you sustain a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or an injury that requires amputation, you’ll need the maximum compensation that’s available. If you are injured by negligence while motorcycling, arrange at once to speak to a Tennessee motorcycle accident lawyer at Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter.
