Proudly Representing Chattanooga and nearby areas of Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia

After suffering an injury from an auto accident, you may be overwhelmed and angered by the expense, pain and turmoil caused by your injury. To make a full recovery, you may require lengthy medical treatment, and this expense may be compounded by any damage caused to your vehicle.

If the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation to pay for these expenses. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, auto accident lawyer Herbert Thornbury pursues maximum compensation for those who have been injured in auto accidents.

When to Seek an Auto Accident Lawyer

For apparently minor accidents, you may be unsure of whether you should contact an auto accident attorney. Generally, you should seek the representation of an auto accident lawyer if:

  • You sustained serious accident injuries.
  • Your injury will prevent you from working.
  • Your injury requires expensive or ongoing medical treatment.

Under these circumstances, you will be facing a considerable financial burden, as well as the physical and emotional stress of your injury. Without an auto accident lawyer, you will face the insurance company on your own. When the insurance company realizes you do not have representation, they may offer you a grossly unfair settlement. Insurance companies often intimidate accident victims into accepting an unreasonable sum, or deny them compensation altogether. Attorney Thornbury will fight aggressively for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

Advantages of an Auto Accident Lawyer

An accident attorney is familiar with the way an auto accident case unfolds. Your attorney handles the legal details of your accident, so you can dedicate your time to recovery and rehabilitation from the effects of the accident, which may take a significant amount of time for certain injuries, such as neck injuries. In pursuit of maximum compensation, your lawyer will handle many particulars of your case, including:

  • Collecting relevant medical documents.
  • Collecting any documentation of your injury.
  • Communicating with insurance companies.
  • Investigating the details of your auto accident.
  • Collecting evidence and testimony proving the extent of your injuries.
  • Bringing the case to court if a fair settlement cannot be reached.

After an accident, your lawyer may be the only person on your side. As your attorney, Herbert Thornbury will be your advocate during all phases of your case, fighting for the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
