In Davidson County, Tennessee, there is ample opportunity for the negligence of other drivers to result in an accident.

A chain reaction usually occurs if vehicles are close together when an accident happens or if an impact happens at high speeds and subsequently hurls the hit vehicle into another vehicle. Collisions in which there is a chain reaction can leave numerous people with common injuries sustained by most victims of car accidents, such as back pain, neck pain, spinal cord injuries, whiplash, broken bones, concussions, and more. Even if you are lucky enough to walk away from such a collision with only a few scrapes and contusions, you should go have your injuries looked at by a medical professional at a nearby medical facility, such as Nashville General Hospital – located at 1818 Albion Street, Nashville, Tennessee 37208.
For example, you could be traveling on I-40 near the Tennessee State Capitol when the driver in front of you slams on his brakes. You end up braking in time and avoiding a rear-end collision with the driver ahead of you, but the driver behind you is distracted by her cell phone and ends up rear-ending you. The force of the impact to the back of your vehicle propels your vehicle into the back of the vehicle in front of you, resulting in you sustaining serious injuries.
In chain reaction crashes, it is highly recommended that you retain a skilled attorney to not only help you substantiate your claim, but also to defend you against potential accusations of comparative negligence that other drivers involved may try to make. In this type of wreck, multiple parties may be pointing the finger at each other, even after the Nashville Police Department comes out to investigate.

Once liability has been established, your lawyer can assist you with the damages portion of your case, including explaining you to the damages to which you may be entitled, such as pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.Explore Your Options with One of Our Auto Collision Lawyers Today
