CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Cars are becoming safer overall; nevertheless, in 2012, after several years of declining numbers, the toll of traffic injuries and fatalities increased by five percent from the year 2011 to approximately 36,200 fatalities and 3.9 million injuries requiring medical treatment.
The Tennessee Department of Safety reports that this state sees around 70,000 car accidents every year; more than 1000 people die and 50,000 suffer injuries on the state’s roads.
These numbers represent a terrible toll in human suffering and loss of life and productivity. In many cases, auto accidents occur because of someone’s negligence, poor driving, or disregard for both traffic laws and the health and safety of others on the road. In these cases, an experienced Chattanooga, Tennessee, car accident attorney can help you recover damages from the person who caused the accident.

If you are among the victims of Tennessee car accidents caused by another driver, poor road maintenance, or defects in the manufacture of a vehicle or its components, you are entitled to make a claim against the individual, company, or government entity that caused the accident and was responsible for your injury or the death of a loved one. This is best accomplished by engaging the services of an experienced Tennessee auto accident attorney with a practice dedicated to helping the injured or bereaved to obtain the compensation they need and deserve, following a serious traffic accident. Your first choice should be the Chattanooga law firm of Wettermark Keith, a firm with a long track record, a 95 percent success rate, and more than $750 million dollars in awards for clients since 2003.
WHY YOU NEED A LAWYER FOR YOUR CAR ACCIDENT
You might wonder if it is really necessary to have a lawyer represent you in your claim. Legally, you are free to attempt to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company on your own. The insurance adjuster who contacts you after the accident will probably encourage you to do just that. But remember that the insurance company’s interests and yours are incompatible.
Insurance companies want to increase their profits by writing more policies and paying out as little as they can get away with. They are not in the business of seeing that the injured receive fair compensation for their injuries. Adjusters are trained in numerous techniques to accomplish this goal.
A dedicated personal injury lawyer, like the attorneys at Wettermark Keith, understands their methods and will be able to overcome them. Accident victims with experienced lawyers working for them typically walk away with significantly more money than those who go it alone.
