Verdicts & Settlements

Always prepared for trial. Never settling for second best.

Our lawyers prepare every case as if it were going to trial. This level of preparation for litigation has resulted in many successful settlements for our clients. When defendants refuse to settle, or fail to offer an appropriate settlement amount, our lawyers have no qualms about pursuing the maximum compensation available at trial. We have successfully tried hundreds of state and federal cases across Tennessee, securing millions of dollars for victims of auto accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, child injury cases and personal injury. You can find a small sampling of our work below.

The case involved the trucking industry niche of “drive-away service.” The trucking company claimed the driver, who was in a personal vehicle, was not an employee who it was responsible for on the return trip from Texas. This case changed the way national insurance companies write insurance for “drive-away” trucking services.

She used some of the proceeds to pay off her modest mobile home in rural North Georgia.

The lady was transported by ambulance to Summit Hospital with a neck injury, diagnosed with a ruptured disc in her neck, and was still under the care of her doctor at the time of trial. All State hired and paid a doctor to testify there was nothing wrong with her, hid pictures of the wreck until the day before trial and only offered $10,000 to settle the case. Rocky and Afsoon asked the jury to award $135,000.
  • $175,000 OUT-OF-COURT SETTLEMENT for 60 year old Gallatin, Tennessee lady who was on her way to work in Nashville when she was hit by a tractor-trailer truck in the rain.

The injured woman suffered fractures of her ribs, pelvis, tailbone, and nose. RML obtained maximum insurance payouts from two different carriers, one for the car owner and one for the driver. Under legal authority unknown by some lawyers, these two policies “stacked” on top of each other to increase the money available to the injured lady.

  • CONFIDENTIAL OUT-OF-COURT SETTLEMENT THE NIGHT BEFORE TRIAL for 21 year old college junior hit head on by a commercial truck near the Governor’s Mansion in South Nashville. The young coed aspired to become a lawyer and work in politics in Washington, D.C. In the wreck, she suffered a severe concussion which developed into post-concussion syndrome, cognitive difficulties, and loss of executive brain function. Despite vocational and cognitive rehab, the client was vocationally unable to pursue graduate level study, thus unable to reach her dreams. The commercial defendant and its lawyers denied responsibility and blamed the young lady for causing the wreck. Rocky fought very hard for this young lady, including investing significant resources in the retention of nine expert witnesses. The experts included an accident reconstructionist, a board-certified neuropsychologist, a board-certified rehabilitation counselor, a board-certified psychiatrist, a board-certified neurologist, a nationally recognized lifetime medical expense planner, a nationally known economist, and a neurologist and orthopaedic surgeon from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The girl’s future medical needs were projected to cost over $135,000 and her lost earnings were projected at over $1.8 million. The case settled at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday evening before the jury was empaneled the following Monday morning.

Workers compensation

The Rocky McElhaney Law Firm has handled hundreds, if not thousands, of workers compensation cases ranging from less severe trigger finger and sprain injuries to catastrophic injuries resulting in paraplegia and debilitating orthopaedic conditions. Over the years, settlements and judgments have ranged from $2,500 to $790,000. Each workers compensation case is different and is based on its unique facts and the law that applies to that case. The results below are some of our most memorable successes. However, RML has handled much smaller cases for injuries to the hands, wrists, arms, elbows, shoulder, neck, back, hips, knees, ankles, toes, fingers and mental conditions resulting from on-the-job injuries as well.

The injured man did not think so. Neither did Rocky.

The bothers were life-flighted to Johnson City, Tennessee for trauma services. Their grandfather was killed.

Rocky and his team hired the nation’s leading accident reconstruction expert to prove that the lights were on. After that, the case settled for maximum insurance limits available from the driver of the Suburban.
