Car Accident Attorney Sevierville/Knoxville Tennessee

Compensation for your car accident injury may come in a settlement or court verdict. You can recover compensation for both tangible and intangible losses you experienced as a direct result of the accident.

Some common forms of compensation you may pursue in a car accident claim include:

  • Medical expenses, including emergency room visits, hospitalization, doctor appointments, and prescriptions
  • Lost wages, if you missed work while recovering from your injuries
  • Lost earning potential, if you will be unable to return to work at the same hours or the same pay as before the accident
  • Property damage, for repair or replacement costs for your vehicle, phone, and other property that may have been damaged in the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium, if your injuries affect your relationship with your spouse
  • Death benefits, including funeral expenses and loss of income, if your family member passed away as a result of the accident

In some cases, courts will order punitive damages, which are meant to punish a defendant for willful conduct or especially egregious behavior. In car accident claims, these are most common in the case of drunk driving crashes.
