Knoxville Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting for the Rights of Victims

Dedicated personal injury lawyers put the rights of the injured first throughout Tennessee

When you or someone you love has been injured in an accident that was caused by the negligent actions or inaction of another, you may wonder what to do first. You might already know that you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party in order to recover compensation for your injuries and losses, however, where do you begin? The first thing you should do is to choose a personal injury attorney who will represent your interests. A lawyer who focuses their efforts on representing clients who have been injured will have developed the knowledge and skill to effectively build your case and win compensation for you.

At the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm, our primary focus is representing injured people. Whether they were injured in a car crash, a construction accident, medical malpractice, or a slip and fall accident, our experienced Knoxville personal injury attorneys know how to establish the defendant’s fault and fight for the best settlement possible.

Types of personal injury cases we handle

Personal injury cases are negligence cases that requires the plaintiff to prove that it was the negligence or the failure to act on the part of the defendant that caused their injuries. Some of the different types of injury cases that we handle include:

What difference can hiring a Knoxville personal injury attorney make for my case?

Would you hire your plumber to perform heart surgery? Probably not. In the same way that you want an experienced surgeon to operate on you, you want the services of a dedicated, experienced Knoxville injury attorney to handle your case for compensation. Yes, you might be able to initiate the claim, but when the insurance company offers you an initial, low-ball settlement offer, how would you know that it is far less than your case is worth? A knowledgeable attorney who has spent many years negotiating claims knows precisely how much your case is worth and they know how to build a convincing case that improves your odds of getting it.

The Knoxville personal injury attorneys at Rocky McElhaney Law Firm know the law, and we know how to investigate the accident or incident to determine the negligent party that is responsible for your injuries. A smart attorney also knows whether your case is worth pursuing. Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we will not charge legal fees until we have won compensation for you. Our payment works out to a percentage of the final settlement or verdict, so it doesn’t cost you a thing in out of pocket expenses.

Typical damages for a personal injury claim

When a person has a claim for a personal injury where they suffered an injury that was caused by the negligence of another individual, we represent their interests whether we settle the case with the insurance company or file a lawsuit in court. If a claim results in a settlement or a jury verdict, the injured person could be eligible to receive the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Lost income from time missed at work recuperating
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses

The Knoxville legal team at Rocky McElhaney Law Firm has a record of success in making sure that our clients receive just compensation when they have been injured due to no fault of their own. We fight both to make our clients whole, and to hold those responsible for their injuries liable for their actions. We are passionate about pursuing justice on behalf of our clients.
