Meyers Injury Law fights for the rights of our personal injury clients who have been injured by negligent parties. If you’ve been injured in an accident, you’re entitled to damages for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
Unfortunately, you can expect resistance from the liable party’s insurance company, which is why you need representation from an experienced personal injury attorney. Nashville personal injury lawyer Chad Meyers has an unparalleled record of success. At Meyers Injury Law, we work on a contingency basis, which means you have access to our professional legal team without paying out of pocket. We collect our contingency fees at the end of your case. Call today for a free consultation with attorney Meyers.
Truck accidents – Large commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 lbs., making them the most hazardous vehicle types on the Nashville roadways.
Motorcycle accidents – Motorcycles travel at high speed and offer no protection for the rider. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, the odds that you sustained physical injuries are incredibly high.
Bicycle accidents – Cyclists are extremely vulnerable to motor vehicles. Injury victims in bicycle accidents often experience serious personal injury.
Pedestrian accidents – As is the case with bicycles, when a pedestrian is involved in a car accident, it can result in catastrophic injuries.
Other vehicles – Our Nashville, TN law firm also represents individuals involved in scooter accidents, ride-share accidents, and all other types of wrecks involving motorized vehicles.
If none of these relations exist, the personal representative of the estate can hire a wrongful death lawyer to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Some Nashville personal injury lawyers list practice areas for cases they have never handled. The objective is to get you to commit to their law firm, but then they will bring in outside personal injury lawyers to do the legal work. Chad Meyers of Meyers Injury Law is personally involved in all of his cases. Call today for a free consultation.
If you need medical attention or police on the scene, call 911. The dispatch will need to know your exact address and location within a premise. This will ensure that police and paramedics can find you.
Talk to Witnesses
With traffic accidents, people will often stop to check on injured victims but quickly leave once they know that first responders are en route. Independent witnesses can be crucial to your case.
Try to get their contact information before they leave.
One of the most common complaints of personal injury lawyers and law firms is that injured clients who would have had an otherwise viable case waited too long to file a claim.
The statute of limitations in Tennessee is one year from the accident date in most cases, one year from the date of death for wrongful death claims, and one year from the date of discovery for medical malpractice claims. If you wait, you may miss your opportunity to file an accident injury claim.
The state of Tennessee allows accident victims to pursue three types of damages from the negligent party.
Any financial costs from an accident are considered economic damages.
These include all medical bills, lost earnings, and property damage.
In a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff may also pursue damages for loss of future income and funeral expenses.
There are no caps for economic damages in Tennessee.
Not all damages that result from an accident have direct economic costs.
Many accidents result in significant pain and discomfort, emotional distress, and inconvenience.
Personal injury attorneys refer to non-economic damages as “pain and suffering” because they seek to compensate victims for these real but non-monetary costs.
Tennessee caps non-economic damages at $750,000.
This third type of damages is only awarded in cases where the defendant’s actions were egregious or intentional.
They are meant to further penalize the defendant for gross negligence or misconduct.
Tennessee caps punitive damages at the greater amount of either $500,000 or two times the amount of economic and non-economic damages combined.
Why Choose Us
What a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do For You
A personal injury law firm like Meyers Injury Law does more than just provide legal expertise. Here is a list of ways that a personal injury law office supports clients throughout the legal process:
Reviews all settlement offers from the insurance company
Refers clients to specialists who will work with them until their claim pays out
Gathers all medical records from parties who were injured in the accident
Subpoenas and deposes witnesses to the accident
Reviews all reports and discovery evidence handed over by opposing legal counsel
Tabulates all damages
Consults accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, and other expert witnesses
Prepares a demand letter for the full settlement amount
Prepares all legal forms to file a lawsuit
Litigates the case in the civil court if necessary
You can file a claim without a personal injury attorney. Still, without the professional knowledge that personal injuries have, you are unlikely to be able to receive a full and fair settlement.

The Three Questions To Ask Before Hiring An Attorney
Does the law firm or attorney ONLY handle Personal Injury?
Would you start a lineman at Quarterback? Look for a firm that ONLY focuses on personal injury law.
Is the law firms MAIN OFFICE located in Tennessee?
Look to hire a local firm with strong ties to the community and Tennessee.
Is the person on all of the marketing (TV, Website, Billboards, etc.) handling your case?
Don’t hire a firm that just takes your case and never lets you talk to the lawyer in charge, get the lawyer who’s name is on the door.

FAQs About Personal Injury Cases
These are some of the most frequently asked questions our legal team hears from our personal injury clients. Contact our law office for a free consultation for a specific answer about your case.
Personal injury attorneys will never guarantee an outcome.
However, in most cases, the settlement accident victims who are represented throughout the legal process tend to be larger than the amounts that unrepresented accident victims receive.
Yes, these are called non-economic damages.
Tennessee only allows victims to recover up to $750,000 in most cases, which may not come close to what’s fair if the accident resulted in catastrophic personal injuries or death.
In Nashville, TN, personal injury law offices work on a contingency basis. That means the attorney works for free until the client receives a settlement or court award. They then deduct their fee as a percentage of that amount.
The fee arrangement should be disclosed to the client before they commit to the firm, but it is usually around one-third of the settlement amount. In most cases, the fee is justified because the client receives a much larger settlement than the insurance company had previously offered.
You have one year to file an injury lawsuit in Tennessee.
This may sound like a long time, but it is the shortest statute of limitations in the country.
Once the time limit has expired, you cannot take the defendant to court.
Furthermore, an insurance company has no incentive to pay once the statute of limitations has lapsed.
That’s why it’s important to contact an accident injury law firm as soon as possible.
