Nashville Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
The car accident attorney with decades of experience and a record of results
One of the first things new drivers are taught is to always keep your eyes on the road. Too many drivers forget that lesson. Distracted driving is common and it’s the cause of many car accidents in the Nashville area. Car accident attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson of Thompson Law fights for the rights of the injured.
The most well-known example of distracted driving is texting while driving. This is illegal in Tennessee, but that hasn’t stopped some drivers. Other drivers take their eyes off the road while talking on the phone, using a GPS, changing the radio station, eating, drinking or talking to passengers.
People who drive distracted think it’s not a big deal if they take their eyes off the road for a few seconds, but that is more than enough time to cause an accident. During those few seconds, a driver could fail to see the car ahead putting on the brakes, or another car making a turn, or a traffic light change.
The result is often a car wreck that can leave drivers and passengers seriously injured. A distracted driving accident can affect you physically, emotionally and financially. You are hurt and need medical treatment. The accident can leave you feeling upset, confused and frustrated, and the medical expenses can add up fast.
A hard-working attorney who knows how to handle your case
If a distracted driver caused your accident, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. Recovering compensation can be complicated. Drivers often deny that they were distracted and may even try to blame you. This can make it more difficult to get the insurance company to cover your damages.
Attorney Kim Thompson knows how the insurance companies operate. He worked for insurance companies for years. They’ll come up with all kinds of excuses to try to pay you as little as possible. They’ll question the extent of your injuries. They’ll say your injuries were pre-existing. They’ll make you a lowball settlement offer to try to save money.
At Thompson Law, we don’t think you should have to put up with these insurance company tactics. Attorney Thompson focuses on building strong cases that hold distracted drivers accountable. Then he fights the insurance companies to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
