Pursuing Recovery Following a Car Accident

In 2016, over 3,900 motor vehicle crashes occurred in Jackson and Madison County. Of those, roughly 25% resulted in injury to a vehicle occupant. Twelve of those people died as a result of their injuries. These numbers exclude parking lot crashes and those occurring on private property, so the true number of accidents and injuries is even higher than these reports indicate.

In an auto accident case, injured parties will likely have to prove that another driver’s negligence caused them bodily injury in order to succeed on the claim. To prove negligence, an injured party must show that the at-fault driver owed him a duty of care, that the driver breached that duty of care in some way, that this breach caused injury, and that he incurred damages as a result thereof. It is important to retain a car accident lawyer in Jackson early in the process so that you can collect evidence to support each of the elements of your claim.

In general, Tennessee law states drivers have a duty of care to their passengers and to the occupants of other motor vehicles, as well as pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and the like, while driving on public roadways. If a driver engages in a negligent action like those named above, such as following too closely, failure to yield, or inattentive driving, then it is likely that a breach of that duty of care has occurred. If a person is injured as a result of that breach, then he or she will eligible for damages resulting from the accident.

Damages following a car accident take many forms. For example, obvious damages would be medical bills, hospital charges, and prescription costs. Another form of damages is lost wages when the accident forces the victim to miss work. Noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, may be available in a case. An attorney experienced in handling these types of cases can help you identify the damages to which you are entitled under Tennessee law.
