Knoxville Personal Injury Case Results

Our Knoxville accident attorneys are true champions for the injured. We have recovered more than $2 billion in settlements and verdicts. Here are just a few examples of what we have achieved for our injured clients in Knoxville and beyond:

$700,000 +:
Our firm represented a man who was volunteering for a local organization when a tree cut down by fellow volunteers fell on him. Our client suffered serious injuries, including numerous fractures and nerve damage. He was airlifted to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery.  Initially, the insurance carrier denied liability and refused to cover our client’s medical bills and other losses. Our client hired NST, and we promptly began our investigation, filed suit, and engaged in extensive discovery. NST also consulted with expert witnesses to assist in proving liability.  After completing discovery, taking depositions, and handling mediation, we resolved the case for a confidential sum exceeding $700,000.00.

Our firm represented a Tennessee couple involved in an accident with a driver who hit them head-on while driving on the wrong side of the road. The wife suffered significant injuries while the husband died on his way to the hospital. NST filed suit to protect our clients’ rights. After thoroughly investigating the accident and identifying all potentially liable parties, our firm uncovered two previously undisclosed additional insurance policies, including an excess umbrella policy. We resolved the case for the total policy limits of $1,400,000.00.

$1 Million +:
Our client was walking in a Tennessee gas station parking lot when a commercial concrete truck struck him. He broke both of his legs and underwent extensive medical treatment. He missed extensive work and suffered permanent restrictions because of the accident. The defendant concrete company strongly contested liability, denied wrongdoing by their driver, and blamed our client for the accident. Our firm filed suit against the company and worked to establish liability, including obtaining video footage and the 911 call. We also located an accident witness. The defendant still denied liability, so our firm continued litigating the case, conducted discovery, took depositions, and argued various motions. NST ultimately helped our client recover a settlement for over $1 million for his serious injuries.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

The NST Law team represents clients in a variety of personal injury cases, including the following:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: From car crashes to truck accidents to motorcycle collisions, our experience spans an array of motor vehicle accidents. We also handle cases involving pedestrian accidentsbicycle accidents, and bus accidents.
  • Product liability: If a defective or dangerous product caused your injury, the manufacturer or seller may be liable for your losses. Whether your injury resulted from an unsafe drug, a defective medical device, or a faulty consumer product, we will pursue compensation for you.
  • Workplace accidents: If you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to compensation through workers’ compensation or a third-party personal injury lawsuit. Our attorneys have experience handling workplace accidents in various industries, including construction accidents.
  • Medical malpractice: If a medical professional has failed to meet the accepted standard of care and harmed you, our team will seek justice on your behalf.
  • Birth injuries: If your child suffered a birth injury from medical malpractice, we can pursue compensation for their future care and other losses.
  • Premises liability: Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. Unfortunately, many do not, causing accidents like slip and falls. When their breach of duty causes you harm, we can hold them accountable.
  • Nursing home abuse: When caregivers neglect or intentionally harm the vulnerable residents in their care, we can hold them accountable and seek compensation for their conduct.
  • Wrongful death: If your loved one died from someone else’s negligence or intentional actions, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.

How Much Is My Knoxville Injury Case Worth?

Our Knoxville personal injury attorneys have recovered as much as $6.3 million for a single client. However, each case is worth a different amount. Your case’s value will depend on individual factors, including the extent of your economic, non-economic, and punitive damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages cover losses with a quantifiable dollar value, such as medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. Calculating the value of past economic damages is often straightforward, but future damages may be more complicated.

We may retain experts to project your future economic losses. This approach played a crucial role in our strategy when representing a client who suffered significant musculoskeletal injuries in a motor vehicle crash. We sought help from a vocational rehabilitation doctor, a forensic economist, an orthopedic surgeon, and a team of life-care planners to calculate her economic damages. With their assistance, we demonstrated how our client’s injuries would affect her financially throughout her lifetime, resulting in a settlement of $1,500,000.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are more subjective. They compensate an injured person for how their injuries impact their quality of life, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Putting a dollar amount on these damages can be challenging, but testimony from experts, witnesses, and you can help us determine a fair value.

Punitive Damages

Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages aim to punish the wrongdoer for their reckless or intentional behavior. These damages are infrequent in Tennessee and only awarded in extreme cases, such as when a defendant acted with malice or willful disregard for others’ safety. Such was the case when a client suffered injuries in an accident with a drunk driver, resulting in a $500,000 award.

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim in Knoxville, TN?

Tennessee’s standard statute of limitations for personal injury claims is one year. Therefore, you have only one year from your accident to file a claim unless an exception applies to your case. 

If you’re concerned you missed the limitations period for your case, let us put our extensive Knoxville investigation connections to work. They can research your case and determine if it qualifies for an exception, such as the following:

  • Injured minor: If the injured person is a minor child, they have until their 19th birthday to file a personal injury claim.
  • Mental impairment: If the victim is mentally incapacitated, the deadline is three years after they receive competent status, the court restores their legal rights, or they’re assigned a legal guardian.
  • Medical malpractice: Most medical malpractice cases have a one-year statute of limitations, but the countdown typically starts on the date of discovery rather than when the injury occurred. This exception does not apply to wrongful death cases, where family members must file within one year of the accident date.
