Nashville Car Crash Attorneys

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Americans drive an average of over 12,000 miles per year. Over the course of a lifetime, this could add up to nearly a million miles driven by each person. It is therefore not surprising that car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the United States.

At some point in his or her life, almost everyone is involved in a car accident. If you are lucky, it is only a mild fender bender. However, Nashville car crashes are often graver, and can result in serious injuries such as brain and spine trauma, amputations, and disfigurement.

Many people assume that, if another driver was at fault, it is easy to prove this and reach an insurance settlement. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Insurance companies often retain their own attorneys to protect their interests. That is why you need an experienced car crash lawyer to make sure that you get a fair settlement if you suffered a car wreck injury due to another driver’s negligence. With over 50 years of experience as attorneys in Nashville, the team at Parker & Crofford knows what it takes to stand up to insurance companies and their lawyers.

Car wreck injuries in Tennessee

The NHTSA states that there are over six million car accidents each year in the United States. In 2008, approximately 2.35 million people were injured in auto accidents. This means that somebody is injured in a car crash every 14 seconds in the U.S.

Common injuries from a Nashville car crash include:

  • Whiplash/neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head/brain trauma
  • Broken bones

Car crashes in Tennessee are typically the result of driver error. There are many techniques you can employ behind the wheel to protect yourself from motor vehicle accidents:

  • Always wear a seatbelt
  • Maintain a generous following distance
  • Do not become distracted by the radio, phone, or others in your car
  • Constantly scan the road ahead to anticipate danger
  • Keep a safe distance from large vehicles such as construction vehicles or tractor trailers
  • Stay out of the blind spots of other vehicles (if you cannot see their mirrors, they likely cannot see you)
  • Always keep two hands on the wheel
