Do I Have A Claim?

Talk To Us About What Happened

If you have been injured in an accident or incident, the lawyers of McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, can help determine the strength of your claim. At your first meeting, a personal injury attorney from our firm will address the following three questions as we begin to build your case:

  • Who is liable for your injury? Was your injury caused by the negligent action — or inaction — of another individual or party?
  • What damages have you incurred, and what damages will you incur? What were your expenses thus far in terms of hospital bills, prescription drugs, medical equipment, lost wages from unpaid missed work and property damage? What costs will you continue to incur for the long term as a result of your injury?
  • From whom can damages be collected? Was the negligent person or party insured?

Other considerations when evaluating your case include your level of pain and suffering. For example, were you affected physically or emotionally by your personal injury to the point where you can no longer partake in certain activities? Will your injury lead to future health risks or conditions that require long-term attention?

Settlement Or Judgment?

It is a common misconception that all personal injury cases result in a trial. Of course, our personal injury attorneys in Chattanooga are wholly prepared to see any case to trial, should it go that far. However, it is a fact that approximately 95 percent of injury cases arrive at a settlement before the trial phase.

Whether your particular case lasts until trial and a subsequent judgment — or ends earlier in the process with a settlement — compensation for your personal injuries is based on a number of factors, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Future medical necessities
  • Loss of income for missed work
  • Lost potential for future income
  • Your age
  • Long-term effects of the injury
  • Inability to participate in or enjoy certain activities
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony
