Call an attorney who has been helping the injured in Nashville for decades
Motorcycle accidents are common at intersections. In an instant, your motorcycle can be hit. You are left injured and in need of medical treatment. Many people aren’t sure what they should do next. That’s when you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side. That’s when it’s time to call Thompson Law.
Intersections are dangerous places for motorcycles. There are a lot of vehicles traveling in many different directions. A driver of a car or truck either doesn’t notice a motorcycle or fails to yield the right of way. The result is a collision that leaves the motorcyclist hurt. Attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson fights for the rights of the injured.
Examples of driver negligence that can cause an intersection accident include:
- Speeding through a red light
- Making a turn without checking for oncoming motorcycles
- Rear-ending a motorcyclist stopped at a red light
An intersection accident can leave a motorcyclist seriously injured. They may suffer neck injuries, back injuries, head injuries or broken bones. An injured motorcyclist may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, and medication. Recovery can take months or even years. Some motorcyclists never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.
An attorney who fights the insurance companies
Negligent motorists who cause accidents typically don’t accept responsibility. They may even deny doing anything wrong. The driver may even blame you for the accident. This puts you in the position of having to prove negligence when filing a claim for compensation.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured. Don’t expect much from them. They are not on your side. Their main concern is keeping their profits high. So, they will try to pay you as little as possible. They have lawyers working to help them find ways to minimize your compensation.
Attorney Thompson is very familiar with the tactics the insurance companies use. He used to work for insurance companies. During his time as a claims adjuster, he gained valuable insight into how they operate after an accident. Now he puts that knowledge to work for clients who have been injured.
Serving Davidson and surrounding counties
The outcome of your case 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 to the accident and interviews them about what they saw. If needed, he consults accident reconstruction experts who can help him understand what happened.
Attorney Thompson builds a strong case that holds negligent drivers accountable. A case that insurance companies can’t ignore. This forces them to take your claim seriously. Many times, they would prefer to stay out of court so they agree to talk about a settlement.
Attorney Thompson is only interested in a settlement of your case that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries, both now and in the future. It includes compensation for lost wages if you couldn’t return to work. It may also include compensation for other damages, such as lost wages.
