Maybe another driver ran a red light and hit you; maybe a multi-vehicle accident has left insurance coverage in question. These are just two examples of the types of auto accident cases taken on by the Nashville Accident Lawyers at the Law Office of Eric Beasley.

How a Nashville Accident Attorney Can Help

You might not know what to expect the first time you visit a lawyer’s office. To start with, you’ll be asked to describe the situation you’re concerned about. This interview will take place before any papers are signed so you won’t be held to any obligation if the Nashville Accident Lawyer is unable to assist. You’ll also be informed of steps involved in filing a car accident claim. This will give you an idea of how quickly your case can be resolved. If everything is agreeable to you, a contract will be available for you to sign. You’ll receive a copy of the document for your own records; it is part of your attorney’s legal responsibility to provide you with a copy of the contract so you can refer back to it in the future.

Tennessee Highway Patrol reports that the 33 year old driver of a Dodge Ram pickup was heading south on Round Top Road when he came up behind the ATV and completely ran over it. The victim was not wearing a helmet and died at the scene. Both men were believed to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Safety precautions should always be taken when driving ATVs recreationally off-road but when blending them in with mainstream motor vehicle traffic, there is even greater risk for hazardous accidents. The risk triples when drivers of traditional cars and trucks act negligently; driving while intoxicated. Often, even wearing a helmet is not enough to save a life when suffering from the reckless impact of a larger vehicle. Families who experience such tragic loss are entitled to be heard by an experienced Nashville lawyer to discuss how they may be compensated for their suffering.
