Suing After A Car Accident

Posted by Harlene Labrum | Jul 22, 2022 | 0 Comments

Being in a car accident can be both confusing and frustrating for a victim. In fact, someone does not necessarily need to be injured to suffer damages and losses. Is it possible to sue the at-fault party if you were not hurt? Is it still worth suing after car accident if the victim only suffered property damage? Filing a lawsuit may be necessary to maximize compensation. It is not uncommon for insurance companies in Tennessee to refuse to pay accident victims an adequate amount of money to repair or replace their damaged vehicles. However, suing following a car crash can be complicated, which is why victims may want to consider consulting with a car accident attorney to help navigate the process. The attorneys at Labrum Law may be able to help determine if it makes sense to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Consider calling (615) 338-9500 today to schedule a consultation.
