There's no such thing as a “simple car accident” case. The moment you hear the crunch of metal and the shatter of glass, your life has entered a difficult period. You have medical bills, lost wages, car repairs, and other expenses. You need help from a lawyer fast, not the insurance company runaround. If you have been injured in a car wreck in Memphis, don’t go it alone, let our car accident law firm help you. We are experienced at handling car accident cases from beginning to end and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Protect your rights by speaking to a lawyer first. Insurance companies have become very aggressive at contacting car accident victims quickly after the event. It’s their belief that quick contact helps them settle cases faster and somehow this is beneficial to you. In reality, they push for a quick settlement before the victim even realizes the value of the losses they have incurred or the severity of their injury.
Our car accident law firm works with investigators and accident re-constructionists to determine how the car accident happened. If the case involves serious injuries, we’ll work with your doctor or other medical specialists to learn what medical care and services you will need for full recovery. We’ll also calculate your lost wages and attempt to place a value on your pain and suffering for inclusion in our compensation demand. From start to finish, the our law firm has your interests at heart.
What can a lawyer do?
You need to sit down and seek the advice of an attorney. For car accidents, Balestrini, Barnes, Jaber & Wood, PLLC offers a free initial consultation to discuss your case. We can advise you on the likelihood of recovery for your accident. In most car accident cases, an attorney can drastically increase the amount of your total award.
It is very common for adjusters to reach out to injured parties almost immediately after a car accident. They will want to talk to you before you hire an attorney. They will ask you what happened in the car accident and about your injuries and damages. They are trained to lure you into saying something detrimental to your case. So long as you have not agreed to anything with them, come in and discuss your case. Let us know exactly what was said.
Inappropriate attorney contact
First, they should not have contacted you directly. Attorneys in Tennessee are strictly prohibited from making direct contact with someone whom they believe needs representation. If you have not agreed to representation, great. If you have, call them and let them know that their services are no longer needed. If you’ve paid them anything, ANYTHING, ask for your money back. Attorneys in Tennessee cannot directly solicit a client and charge any fees.
Sticking with a big firm
Having a trusting relationship with your attorney is key. If you are questioning whether your legal needs are being met you may want to consider going with another firm. Large law firms have many, many clients. Your attorney may or may not know who you are unless they have your file sitting right in front of them. A smaller firm has fewer cases. While our law firm isn’t small, we don’t take on more cases than we can handle. Our attorneys will recognize you at the grocery store, and say “Hi.” You will be more than a number to us.
