Some people that have been injured as the result of a crash or collision may not require the help of a lawyer for their claim. Typically, a claim involving just damages to property and a small or slight injury can be settled with insurance agents and does not require the skills of an attorney. If you do not know whether or not your case may require a personal injury attorney, you should speak to our firm about your eligibility to receive compensation. If your case does not require our help, our attorneys can typically provide you with adequate information so you can reach a reasonable settlement. If, however, your claim involves a severe or life-altering injury, it is recommended that you speak to a knowledgeable Tennessee vehicle collision attorney. These types of claims can involve factors that you may not even know about and an insurance provider is not legally required to inform people with injuries about the problems they may have to deal with. For insistence many claims that involve the need for treatment mean that if you received compensation from the other party, your medical insurance provider would be within their rights to ask for compensation for the amount they agreed to pay for the treatment you received. There may be an exception to these rights like the “made whole doctrine”. This exclusion can be difficult though and it may mean that the party with injuries pays a large amount of money if these rights are improperly defended. In all claims, there are time limitations that need to be met. If you fail to file your claim according to the limitations, you may have to give up your rights to make a case and may no longer be able to receive compensation. Many people may not realize what is a reasonable amount of compensation to settle for and may receive compensation for much less than they deserve. Our legal team with the Higgins Firm has the experience that is needed to determine if a settlement amount is reasonable or if a trial may be necessary.
