If you or a family member has been injured in an auto accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Fendley Law. We have been helping accident victims for more than 30 years. We handle a wide range of auto accident claims, including:
In today's society, you buy and pay for auto insurance all of your adult life. If you have been injured in an auto accident, now is the time for the insurance companies to pay.
The insurance companies perpetuate a myth that every American is highly litigious by nature - an eager opportunist ready to exploit an accident as an opportunity for a personal jackpot. In truth, all too many Americans are reluctant to assert their rights and demand the just compensation they deserve. We are focused on providing the strong advocacy that accident victims need and deserve.
Do not put your right to just compensation in jeopardy by placing your trust in an insurance company. An insurance adjuster is a hired employee of the insurance company. The adjuster's job is to settle your case as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
Let us put our experience to work for you. We have the experience, dedication and resolve to protect your rights. Our founding attorney, Mart Fendley, has more than 30 years of experience handling personal injury claims. As a skilled negotiator and trial lawyer, he will ensure that you receive the vigorous representation you need.
Time is of the essence. What you do after an accident is extremely important. Establishing the facts of how the accident occurred, identifying witnesses and identifying all potential parties who are at fault should be done immediately.
Tennessee has a one-year statute of limitations for asserting a personal injury claim. This means the case must be settled before the one year anniversary date of the automobile accident that has caused injury or a suit must be filed.
Claims of injury must be substantiated by medical evidence. It is critical that the injured person seek proper medical care and follow the recommendations of their treating physician. Maintaining records of how the injury has impacted one's life and family is important. If the injury is serious it may take many months for the medical care to come to an end. It may take many more months before the injured person will know the extent of their impairment.
We do not recommend that a case be settled before sufficient time has elapsed to determine the extent of our client's injuries. To value a claim we must learn the nature of the injuries and the impact these impairments will have on our clients, their family, their employment, their ability to participate in hobbies and other pleasurable activities.
