Murfreesboro Serious Injury Attorneys Achieve Maximum Compensation for Injured Victims
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another, you are not alone
An accident that results in serious injury only takes a split second to occur, but it can leave a lifetime of pain or disability. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured due to the negligence of another person, you may seek compensation for the damages you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, the cost of future medical care, pain and suffering, and, in some cases, punitive damages. With serious injuries, potential compensation often anticipates extensive medical care, long-term in-home care, and special accommodations that must be added to the injured person’s home. At Dotson & Taylor, Attorneys at Law, our Murfreesboro injury attorneys assist seriously injured individuals and their family members in obtaining maximum compensation for the injuries suffered. Our attorneys handle claims involving brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, loss of limb, and other serious, life-altering injuries. With more than 35 years of combined experience, trust our Murfreesboro injury attorneys to obtain the compensation you need.
A serious personal injury can change your life
Our attorneys have access to highly trained professionals in various disciplines to help prove the validity of your case. In serious injury cases, it is often necessary to bring in economists, life-care planners, and medical professionals. These experts help us understand the many factors surrounding the injury — such as the financial impact one’s injury has on a family, how the client’s daily life is altered, and the full physical extent of the injury. With this knowledge, our attorneys create settlement demands that seek maximum compensation.

Depending on the severity of the injury, the individual can face many challenges after the accident. Daily activities, such as maintaining personal hygiene, working, driving, playing with one’s children, exercising, running errands, cooking, and simply enjoying life — can become difficult or even impossible without additional assistance. For some families, the injured victim may be emotionally and physically unrecognizable, which may require extensive in-home assistance and numerous medical procedures. Our Murfreesboro accident lawyers study the injury in its entirety and do not back down from the insurance companies when seeking compensation on your behalf.
Why file a serious injury claim?
In Tennessee, personal injury claims, including serious injury claims, must be filed within a certain time frame. This is called the statute of limitations. If an injured party fails to file a serious injury claim within the statute of limitations required by law, that party may forever waive the right to recover any monetary damages for the injury.
Serious injury claims often require years of medical care. For example, if an individual is paralyzed after a car accident, that individual may need a specialized wheelchair, renovations to one’s home, and extensive physical therapy for the rest of his or her life. If a serious injury claim was never filed, the expense for these measures becomes the responsibility of the injured party. Although another individual was negligent and caused the injury, the injured party is now responsible for potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical care.
In addition, one of the justice system’s goals is to hold individuals accountable for their actions. If an individual acts negligently and causes another individual serious injury or harm, the at-fault individual should be liable for the damages he or she has caused. By failing to file a claim, the at-fault party never faces consequences for his or her actions.
