Nashville Dooring Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been injured, call an attorney with the experience that gets results
Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries but a car does not have to be in motion for a motorcyclist to get hurt. Dooring accidents involve cars that are parked, but they are also caused by negligence. Thompson Law holds negligent drivers accountable and fights to help victims recover financial compensation.
Dooring accidents are all pretty similar. A motorcyclist is riding down the street. A car is parked up ahead. The door of the car opens suddenly, blocking the path of the motorcyclist. The motorcyclist is unable to stop in time and crashes into the door.
Motorcyclists can be left with serious injuries after a dooring accident. These can include head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, broken bones, and cuts and lacerations. Some may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. Recovery may take months or even longer.
An attorney who has been helping the injured for decades
Attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson understands the impact an injury can have on motorcyclists. He is a motorcyclist himself and knows from experience that there is a risk of dooring accidents. An injured motorcyclist can be left with medical expenses that can get out of control. If they are unable to return to work for some time, there is less money coming in.
Insurance companies are supposed to help but they are not your side. They think all motorcyclists are irresponsible thrill-seekers who must be to blame when there’s an accident. They are mostly concerned with their bottom line. They want to keep their profits high, so they try to keep payouts low.
They use different tactics to minimize compensation. Attorney Thompson is very familiar with all of them. He used to work as a claims adjuster for insurance companies. Now, he puts his knowledge about how they operate to work for clients who have been injured due to negligence.
The outcome of your dooring accident claim depends on the facts. So, that’s where attorney Thompson starts. He carefully reviews all documentation, such as accident reports and medical records. He identifies witnesses and interviews them about what they saw. If needed, he consults with experts who can help him understand what happened.
Serving Davidson and surrounding counties
Attorney Thompson builds a strong case that the insurance companies can’t ignore. This forces them to take your claim seriously. Insurance companies usually agree to talk about a settlement. They would love for you to accept a low offer that helps them save money, but Thompson Law is not interested in that.
Attorney Thompson will negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injury – both now and in the future. It includes lost wages if you couldn’t return to work right away. It may also include compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
When you are represented by our firm, you can expect personal attention every step of the way. Attorney Thompson will meet with you to discuss your options. He will keep you informed on the progress of your case. If you ever have questions or concerns, contact him and he will return your call as soon as possible.
