Why should you bear the financial burden for personal injury?

If you are driving along a Tennessee highway and another motorist causes a collision by failing to yield the right-of-way, an otherwise uneventful day might turn into a chaotic series of events that includes you being transported to a local hospital. If you suffer personal injury in a motor vehicle collision accident, it is always best to accept medical care, even if you do not have immediately apparent injuries. Traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage and other issues may not present symptoms for hours, or even days later.

What if you're scheduled for surgery in a Tennessee hospital and the surgeon forgets to remove a surgical instrument from your body or operates on the wrong body part? While such incidents may sound horrific and easily preventable, the fact is these are two of the most common types of surgical errors that occur throughout the country. Just as a motorist refusing to yield may be grounds for an injury claim, medical malpractice is also a legitimate reason to seek financial recovery for losses in court when another party's negligence has resulted in your injury.

Property owners are legally obligated to keep people safe as well. If you trip and fall because a hazard was left in a walkway or a safety code violation occurred, the owner of the property may be held financially responsible for your injuries. In any case involving a request for compensation for damages due to injury, the plaintiff is tasked with providing evidence in court that shows the defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff and not only failed in that duty but caused injury because of that failure.

Witherington Law, PLLC, in Tennessee, is committed to helping you protect your rights and best interests when another person's negligence has caused you personal injury. Damages in such cases often include physical injury, as well as emotional pain and trauma, economic distress and loss of wages. By requesting a meeting with our experienced legal team, you can take the first step toward seeking accountability against the party or parties who failed in a duty to help keep you safe.
