Goodlettsville, Tennessee, located in Davidson and Sumner Counties, lies just north of Nashville and close to the Cumberland River. Many people know Goodlettsville for its outstanding youth baseball; in 2012, a little league team from Goodlettsville qualified to play for the Little League World Series title against the international champion. They were the first Tennessee team to qualify for this event since 1987, and in 2016, a second team from Goodlettsville qualified. With a quality public school system and a low crime rate, many people who commute to Nashville for work choose to live in this community.
Recovering from Negligent Drivers
The greater Nashville area is exploding in population, and this population boom is extending to surrounding areas. In Goodlettsville, Interstate 65 and Tennessee State Routes 174 and 386 often experience dense traffic. Between 2012-2016, the number of auto accidents increased exponentially in Davidson and Sumner Counties. In Davidson County, crashes increased from 22,705 to 33,156, and in Sumner County, they increased from 3,414 to 3,939.
In Tennessee, drivers are expected to exercise due care behind the wheel. If another driver was not paying attention and hit your vehicle, you may be able to recover compensation for property damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses caused by the wreck. Our personal injury attorneys can help Goodlettsville residents prove their claims by establishing the other driver’s negligence, which could include texting while driving, speeding, driving drunk, or disregarding a traffic device. If you were struck by an 18-wheeler, we can utilize our knowledge of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, which interstate truck drivers must abide by at all times.
Personal Injury Cases Involving Big Corporations
Defective products involve some type of product failure or malfunction. The attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz bring a wide range of experience in successfully representing plaintiffs against manufacturers, retailers, and distributors in product liability lawsuits. Product liability claims may be based upon strict liability, failure to warn of side effects, misrepresentation or concealment, fraud, and breach of warranty, in addition to a host of other federal and state statutes.
Tennessee imposes a one-year statute of limitations on personal injury actions, and this includes product liability cases. However, considerations such as when the injury was discovered and whether the defendant engaged in fraud can come into play. Therefore, it is vital to discuss your situation with an attorney as soon after the incident as possible. Our Goodlettsville personal injury attorneys can investigate the specific circumstances surrounding your injury and help you satisfy legal deadlines such as the statute of limitation.
In the context of medications, the United States has one of the highest rates of prescription drug use in the world. Every year, millions of Americans seek the care of physicians and other medical professionals, spending sizable sums of money on prescription drugs. While drug companies have a duty to research and test drugs before introducing them to the marketplace, medications are often shown to display unintended and significant side effects, causing serious injuries and, in the worst of scenarios, even death. If you or a loved one has suffered harm from taking defective prescription drugs, let an attorney at NST evaluate your situation.
In general, a manufacturer who sells or distributes a defective drug may be liable for the harm or injuries caused by the defect. Such liability could stem from the drug itself, or a manufacturer failing to properly instruct or warn users about the drug. Prescription drug cases often involve complex, highly technical details. Pharmaceutical companies are notorious for pouring significant resources into defendant injury claims. Our law firm has the resources to investigate these matters and consult with experts to help build a case on behalf of Goodlettsville residents.
