Why Hire The Higgins Firm for Your Knoxville Personal Injury Case
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, hurt on the job, endured medical malpractice, or slipped and fallen at the grocery store, you probably already know that you need a lawyer to help you file a claim for damages. But, with so many options, it can get confusing, and many people simply turn to the first attorney they find.
There’s a big difference between hiring a personal injury lawyer and hiring the right personal injury firm for your case. Some personal injury attorneys will claim they can handle any kind of lawsuit, and take your case no matter what. The trouble with a firm that doesn’t specialize is that you may end up with a lawyer who is a Jack-Of-All-Trades but master of none.
The Higgins Firm is different for four key reasons, reasons that can make all the difference in the outcome your case.Specialized Litigation Teams
Personal injury law firms are, by nature, litigation firms. We advocate for the rights of the consumer, the elderly, and those injured through an accident that wasn’t their fault. The Higgins Firm represents the interests of people who may not be able to advocate for their own rights and protects their interests against insurance companies and big business.
We structured our firm into litigation teams specializing in a particular type of personal injury. For example, we offer:
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Worker’s Compensation
- Defective and Potentially Defective Drugs
- Trucking Accidents
- Wrongful Death
While Tennessee personal injury laws are largely the same for most types of cases, each category of personal injury litigation has its own statutes, including what kind of evidence you need to support your claim and the threshold of liability of the other party. Creating departments that focus solely on one kind of personal injury allows us to become experts in several areas, thereby giving our clients the quality representation they deserve.Expertise From the Other Side
Many of the lawyers at The Higgins Firm are former defense attorneys for insurance companies. Their unique insight and experience benefit our clients because we can anticipate what the other party’s insurance company is likely to do and craft our response it.
Understanding what factors motivate insurance carriers for large corporations, medical care providers, or commercial trucking companies can help us when we negotiate on behalf of our clients.Peer-Honored Achievements
