Knoxville Highway Accidents

Knoxville Injury Attorneys for Highway Crash Victims

In Knox County, you could be driving on U.S. Route 129, also known as Alcoa Highway, and get hit by another vehicle, which could leave you with serious injuries ranging from lacerations and fractured bones to head trauma and paralysis. Highway accidents can pose a greater risk of severe injuries due to the increased speed at which most vehicles travel on highways and several other factors. If you or a loved one has been injured in a highway accident, you should contact the Knoxville car accident lawyers of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz. We are the largest plaintiff’s personal injury law firm based in Tennessee. For over 30 years, our firm of 30 attorneys and more than 120 staff members has been serving injured people throughout the South. To date, we have recovered over $1.5 billion in damages for our clients and their families.

Recovering Damages from Highway Accidents

Negligence is the cause of most car accidents. In order to obtain compensation for your losses and injuries, you must prove that the other driver breached the duty of reasonable care that was owed to you due to their negligence, which resulted in your injuries. Negligence can include speeding, failing to yield, road rage, texting while driving, distracted driving , drunk driving, driving while fatigued, aggressive driving, and many other actions. Speaking with witnesses and photographing the scene of the accident can support your claim. Procuring other evidence can also aid in proving your claim, but what do you do if the other driver blames you for the accident?

Tennessee law operates under modified comparative negligence, so if a jury finds you at fault for a collision, your compensation could be reduced by the percentage of blame attributed to you – unless your portion of the blame exceeds 49%. If your percentage of blame is 50% or greater, you could be barred from your recovery altogether. Retaining a skilled car accident attorney in the Knoxville area could defend you against allegations of comparative fault, and when it comes to your injuries and losses, it is wise to choose the appropriate paths that increase your likelihood of obtaining your maximum recovery.

Your injuries could result in you staying several nights at, for example, an emergency room Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, which is located at 1901 Clinch Avenue, Knoxville, Tennessee 37916. To compensate you for the bills you may incur at a medical facility, you may be awarded economic damages. Economic damages can also compensate you for other monetary losses, such as lost wages and loss of earning capacity, depending on factors such as your age, education, credentials, and work history. Non-economic damages attempt to quantify intangible losses and compensate you for them, including loss of consortium, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement. You may be able to seek additional damages based on the nature and severity of your injuries.
