We Can Assist With Your Chattanooga Car Crash

Car and truck accidents leave victims with severe, even fatal, injuries. In addition to physical pain and suffering, lost wages and large medical bills can make it hard to keep up with the cost of living and supporting your family. You should not be stuck paying for someone else’s bad behavior.

At Horton, Ballard & Pemerton, we help clients get the compensation they need to pay for medical treatment, make up for lost wages and reimburse them for their pain and suffering.

From our office in Chattanooga, we serve car accident victims throughout Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.

Working With Injury Victims Across Tennessee, Georgia And Alabama

At Horton, Ballard & Pemerton, we don’t shy away from difficult cases. Our attorneys often take on the personal injury cases other firms turn away. We are dedicated to our clients. We do everything in our power to help them get the compensation they need to move forward with their lives.

Over the years, our firm has successfully represented clients injured in a wide range of auto accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Accidents involving bicyclists
  • Accidents involving pedestrians
  • Drunk driver accidents
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims
  • Wrongful death claims

The amount of compensation you recover after a car accident depends on who was at fault. However, there is often no clear division of fault. Instead, both parties may have contributed to the accident. Each party’s contribution to the accident will be used to determine how much compensation they are entitled to receive. It is in your best interests to hire experienced attorneys who know how fault-based accident claims work and can maximize your compensation.

At Horton, Ballard & Pemerton, we investigate every aspect of our clients’ accidents. We interview witnesses and examine road conditions, car maintenance and whether the other driver was using distracting devices such as a cellphone or GPS system. Once we have gathered all of the evidence, we build strong claims that place fault on the other driver and get our clients the largest recovery possible.

Do I Need a Car Accident Lawyer?

Whether you need a lawyer for your car accident depends on the specific circumstances of the accident and your individual situation. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Severity of the Accident: If the accident resulted in serious injuries, extensive property damage, or fatalities, it's generally a good idea to consult with a lawyer. These cases can be complex, and a lawyer can help you navigate the legal process and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
  • Liability and Fault: If there is a dispute over who was at fault for the accident, or if the other party is disputing your claim, a lawyer can help gather evidence to establish liability and protect your rights.
  • Insurance Issues: Dealing with insurance companies can be challenging, especially if they are offering a settlement that you believe is inadequate. A lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and help you understand your rights under your insurance policy.
  • Legal Knowledge and Experience: If you're not familiar with the legal process or if you're unsure about your rights and options, a lawyer can provide valuable expertise and guidance.
  • Statute of Limitations: There are deadlines for filing personal injury claims known as statutes of limitations. These vary by state and type of claim, so it's important to be aware of the time limits that apply to your case. A lawyer can ensure that you meet these deadlines.
  • Financial Considerations: Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if you receive compensation. This can make legal representation more accessible to people who may not be able to afford upfront legal fees.

Ultimately, the decision to hire a lawyer for your car accident is a personal one based on your individual circumstances. It may be beneficial to consult with a lawyer to discuss your case and explore your options.
