Though we do everything in our power to protect all personal injury victims in Tennessee, we have found that most of our clients seek us out – or refer us to others – for complex claims involving:

Our Tennessee personal injury law firm fights for justice for those who need it most. We know that a serious medical condition or catastrophic personal injury can lead to more than just pain and suffering: it can cost you everything. When debt collectors are badgering you day and night with letters and robo-calls, or when the medical bills are piling up so fast that you may be in danger of losing your home, a Nashville personal injury lawyer from the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm is by your side to give you strength and help you fight back.

The name you trust after an auto accident in Tennessee

There are few circumstances more frightening – or frustrating – than auto accidents. Our Nashville auto accident attorneys are known throughout the state of Tennessee as being some of the fiercest, most aggressive litigators around. We’ve built a reputation for obtaining large verdicts and settlements for car crash victims in Tennessee. Our Nashville auto accident lawyers fight for justice for victims of:

  • Auto accidents. If you were injured in a car accident in Nashville, Hendersonville, Knoxville or anywhere in the state, RML knows what to do. Our Nashville auto accident attorneys handle complex claims involving everything from single-car crashes, multi-car pileups, ride-sharing services, pedestrians and bicyclists. Our car accident lawyers deal with your insurance company, help you get a rental car and work hand-in-hand with your doctors to collect and document the evidence we need to build a successful case for you.
  • Truck accidents. When you’ve been in an accident with an 80,000lb tractor-trailer, you’re going to need some help. These massive vehicles pose a lot of problems to passenger cars on the road, namely because they cannot maneuver quickly or stop on a dime when there’s a problem. Whether the truck itself was defective, the driver committed an error or something else was responsible for your collision, our skilled Nashville auto and truck accident attorneys can help.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Tennessee has some of the greatest roads in the country for riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, our drivers share the rest of the country’s propensity for ignoring bikers while on the road. A motorcycle accident is always serious, because riders don’t have the same kinds of protections that car and truck drivers do. After a serious motorcycle accident, let RML uphold your rights and protect your future.
  • Airplane & train accidents. Thank goodness that airplane and train accidents are rare, because they are potentially devastating. Our team of mass transit accident lawyers are familiar with the rules and regulations which govern air and train travel, and understand what kind of uphill battle you face when you don’t have the right representation. Let us shoulder that burden for you.

No matter what kind of motor vehicle accident you have endured, there is an auto accident attorney at Rocky McElhaney Law Firm who knows what to do. Our personal injury law firm in Nashville, Hendersonville and Knoxville represent auto accident victims throughout the state. Put our Gladiators to work for you, your family and your future.

Why you can rely on Rocky McElhaney and his Nashville team

Lead attorney Rocky McElhaney knows how difficult life can be for families undergoing one of these ordeals. When he was young, his father suffered a broken back at work and was denied workers’ compensation benefits. His family lost their home trying to pay his father’s medical bills and was forced out onto the street. Rocky never forgot how hard it was to watch his father struggle to get the benefits he was entitled to receive, and he dedicated his life to making sure that families never have to suffer the indignities that he had to endure.

Rocky is now a premier personal injury trial attorney in Nashville, and has secured multiple million-dollar settlements and jury verdicts for his injured clients throughout Tennessee. He works tirelessly to provide every person who walks through his door with the respect and results he or she deserves. He has assembled a team that represents the evolution of the legal profession — young, innovative and highly educated legal professionals who use cutting-edge technology to prepare the best possible cases for our clients. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers and auto accident attorneys are known for using computer animation and accident reconstruction to present visually compelling arguments for juries and judges at trial. We also routinely work with experts in medicine, economics, accounting and forensic evidence to dissect our opponents’ cases and get the maximum results at settlement and at trial.
