Personal Injury

When selecting the Best Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyer for your case there are several factors to consider. Some of the key factors to examine include the law firm’s experience, resources, records of success and reputation for being trustworthy. The Higgins Firm has worked hard over the years to obtain a reputation as a Nashville Personal Injury Law Firm that has obtained high marks for each of these key factors.

You can watch a video interview of Jim Higgins explaining why many client’s choose The Higgins Firm to represent them in a time of need.

Here are some of our firm highlights:

  • EXPERIENCE: The Higgins Firm has lawyers with years of experience in litigating aggressive serious injury litigation. We have lawyers that are former insurance defense attorneys that now only represent seriously injured people. Our lawyers are licensed in multiple states and have worked on cases throughout the country. We are often brought into cases by other lawyers that feel they can benefit from our experience and resources.
  • RESOURCES: Like any trade, it is not enough to just have a skilled craftsman. That craftsman needs good tools to effectively perform his job. As such, we make sure that our lawyers have all the tools necessary to obtain maximum results for our clients. Specifically, each lawyer has dedicated, experienced staff allowing attorneys to focus on the litigation. We have experts throughout the country that we use depending on the needs of the case. We have technology and graphics experts to help explain to the jury the damages sustained by our clients. These tools help our injury lawyers build a case that fully reflects our clients’ losses.
  • RESULTS: Our lawyers have been admitted into elite associations such as the Million Dollar Advocate Forum and Top 100 Trial Lawyers. They have successfully tried numerous cases in courts across the country, obtaining verdicts for clients that were needed and deserved. Due to this record of success, we are able to settle many cases early as most insurance adjusters or opposing counsel are also aware of our results and zealous representation.
  • TRUST: This factor is a little more difficult to describe. When meeting with a lawyer you must be certain that the attorney is being honest and not simply telling you what you would like to hear. This is not always easy, as some parts of the law just are not fair. However, the only way to know where you stand is to have all the information, good and bad. All of our attorneys are expected to promptly and completely update their clients as to the progress of their case. In turn, we also expect our clients to be completely honest about any potential problems they may have with their claim. It is only through this completely transparent relationship that we can succeed. Litigating cases is not easy so trust is important for everyone involved.

Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ: Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

While you might have watched the video above that talks about choosing a personal injury lawyer in Nashville, TN, you might not know whether you need one.

You may want to hire a lawyer because you’ve suffered serious injuries, or the legal rules relevant to your claim are complicated. In other instances, you may be dealing with a bad faith insurance company or being denied compensation. If you can relate to any of the following, contacting a Nashville personal injury lawyer may be a good idea.

You Suffered Long Term or Permanent Injuries

If your injuries are considered to be long term, or have left you with a permanent disability, you should call a personal injury lawyer in Nashville. A lawyer can review your case and help you to understand what it may be worth. To ensure you recover maximum damages, you need to choose a lawyer who is able to pursue all forms of available compensation.

You Suffered Severe Injuries

Even if your injuries are not permanent, or long term, you may be unable to work for several months and require ongoing medical care. In this case, you should be compensated. What you will receive largely depends on the severity of your injuries. An insurance company will measure the severity by the type of injury, the amount of your medical bills, and the length of your recovery time. The more compensation available, the more likely you will begin to reach the defendant’s policy limits. If this is the case, you might struggle to get what you deserve. A Nashville personal injury lawyer may be able to ensure this doesn’t happen.

There are Multiple Parties Involved, Or You Don’t Know Who is At Fault

If you were involved in an accident where multiple parties could be liable, you should call The Higgins Firm. When there is more than one liable party, a claim can become complex. Likewise, if many people were injured, there is a greater risk of less settlement money being available. You might also be the subject of claims from other parties. It is prudent to have a personal injury lawyer in Nashville on your side.

The Insurance Company Won’t Pay

Sometimes an insurance company will refuse to settle a claim. If you cannot recover a settlement from the liable party’s insurance company or your own, or negotiations have failed, you are advised to call a personal injury lawyer in Nashville, Tennessee.

If any of the above apply, or you have recently been injured in an accident, call a reputable lawyer from The Higgins Firm. For a consultation, call 800.705.2121.
