According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, a 22-year-old Tennessee man recently pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and driving while impaired in connection with his role in a 2009 car accident. On December 28, 2009, the 22-year-old man crashed into a 22-year-old female who was walking along Highway 411 in East Tennessee. The female subsequently died. The 22-year-old driver fled the scene and was later arrested by police. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol (â€śTHPâ€ť), he admitted to drinking a 40-ounce beer before driving that morning.
If you have lost a loved one in a car accident in Knoxville, Memphis, or Jackson, Tennessee, call Tennessee auto accident attorney Corey B. Trotz at 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004. Corey B. Trotz has practiced law for over twenty years at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť), the largest plaintiffâ€™s personal injury law firm in Tennessee. NST Law has the resources necessary to fight for surviving loved ones to recover maximum compensation for their loss. These resources allow NST lawyers to establish a defendant driverâ€™s liability, calculate damages, and prove damages to a judge or jury.
To establish a defendant driverâ€™s liability, NST Law can interpret a THP accident report, ask to speak to local police, or ask to interview key witnesses. Proving liability helps clients recover maximum compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. NST Law can retain various experts to calculate these damages and clearly explain them to a jury. Medical experts can document any medical bills incurred by the deceased between the accident and her death. Vocational economists can compute the victimâ€™s lost wages and explain the process used to calculate that figure. Psychiatric doctors and professionals can evaluate the mental health of surviving loved ones and determine the extent of stress and pain suffered as a result of the accident. If a defendant driver was convicted of driving under the influence (â€śDUIâ€ť) after the crash, your NST lawyer may pursue punitive damages. Tennessee courts award punitive damages to punish an individual defendant and prevent members of the community from engaging in certain conduct, such as driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. NST lawyers utilize in-depth knowledge of Tennessee driving and insurance laws when deciding whether to seek punitive damages.
