Asked by user in Tennessee.
I was injured by a federal vehicle, which eventually resulted in me having a spinal fusion.
I’m sorry this happened to you.
Without reviewing your medical records and the specific facts of your case, it’s difficult for me to provide an accurate case value.
Generally speaking, plaintiffs in Tennessee car accident cases can recover economic damages, non-economic damages, and (in some cases) punitive damages. You can learn more about each type of damages here.
What’s more, insurance companies and adjusters use a simple formula to estimate the value of a claim. You can learn more about that formula and estimate the value of your claim here.
Finally, personal injury lawyers in your area will be able to give you a more accurate estimate based on (1) the facts of your case, (2) your specific injury, and (3) the amounts generally awarded by jurors in your county. You can locate a personal injury attorney near you using our free online directory. Most initial consultations are free.
Keep in mind that the statute of limitations (which is the time period within which you must file a claim) is typically shorter when accidents involve government agencies and employees. In addition, sovereign immunity may impact your ability to file a lawsuit. For these reasons, we recommend meeting with a lawyer near you—particularly since your injury was severe.
