Nashville Side-Impact Accidents
Davidson County can be a busy place – especially inside Nashville’s city limits – so it is crucial that all motorists use reasonable care while driving in order to avoid getting into an accident. In such bustling regions, however, there are countless intersections and four-way stops – both of which are places where many motor vehicle crashes occur, specifically side-impact collisions. When the front of a vehicle slams into (or T-bones) the side of another vehicle, the victim(s) on the side of the vehicle that was hit can suffer devastating injuries. The same can be said for a sideswipe accident. If you or a loved has been injured in a side-impact accident that occurred in Nashville, you should contact one of the Nashville car accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz.

Recovering economic and non-economic damages after a side-impact collision requires you to prove the other driver’s liability. To do that, you must establish the defendant’s negligence, which can include cell phone use while driving, distracted driving, driving while fatigued, reckless driving, road rage, drunk driving, aggressive driving, speeding, texting while driving, and more. When establishing negligence, you must show that the other driver breached a duty of reasonable care that he or she owed you, which resulted in you sustaining injuries. While photographing your injuries and gathering witness testimony is a great start to validating your claim, you should hire a car accident attorney in the Nashville, Tennessee, area to help you further substantiate your claim.
Many side-impact collisions happen at intersections and stoplights, and that is no different in Nashville. On your way to the Tennessee State Capitol, located at 600 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville, Tennessee 37243, for example, you could be driving through the intersection of Fifth Avenue North and Charlotte Avenue and get T-boned by a distracted driver who ran their red light. After such a collision, it is important that you have your injuries treated at a nearby medical facility.
Depending on the severity and nature of your injuries and losses, you may be entitled to compensatory damages in the form of economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are awarded for monetary losses deriving from the collision, such as medical bills, prescription expenses, and lost wages. On the other hand, non-economic damages attempt to quantify the intangible losses and compensate accordingly. Intangible losses include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and emotional distress. Non-economic damages tend to revolve around how the wreck affected your daily life and ability to live independently.Explore Your Options with an NST Lawyer Today
