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.

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, one person died and one person was injured in a Memphis, Tennessee, car accident on August 6, 2011.Â The Shelby County Sheriffâ€™s Office reported a 20-year-old man driving a Chevrolet Camaro caused the crash.Â The man was speeding and ran a stop sign near Finch Road and Ross Road.Â He then crashed into an Oldsmobile SUV.Â According to a statement by the Shelby County Sheriffâ€™s Office, the forceful impact of the accident sent both cars into the yard of a nearby residence.Â The Oldsmobile SUV driver was trapped in his car and pronounced dead at the scene.
A driver can be considered negligent by speeding and running a stop sign.Â If a driverâ€™s negligence contributes to a car accident, that driver may be liable for any resulting damages.Â Therefore, being able to prove a defendant driverâ€™s negligence in a car accident lawsuit is critical.Â The Tennessee auto accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť) have over twenty years experience investigating car accidents and know how to prove negligence.Â NST lawyers can prove liability by analyzing an accident report, asking to speak with the Shelby County Sheriffâ€™s Office or Memphis Police Department, and speaking to witnesses.Â Should these methods not definitively prove liability, NST Law can retain an accident reconstruction expert to recreate the crash.Â If you have lost a loved one in a car accident in Memphis, Germantown, Frayser, or Shelby County, call the Tennessee auto accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz at 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004.
When developing the damages portion of a wrongful death claim, NST Law can consult with vocational economists to compute the future lost income of a deceased.Â Lost income can be calculated by taking oneâ€™s age, occupation, education, and experience into account. If the deceased incurred hospital expenses between the crash and his or her death, NST Law can retain medical experts to document the cost of those bills.Â NST Law can also pursue damages for pain and suffering by retaining psychiatric experts and doctors to evaluate the emotional distress a surviving loved one experiences.Â The deceased could be a parent, sibling, or spouse, and since each person grieves differently, these professionals can determine the extent of oneâ€™s suffering.Â Your NST lawyer will do everything possible to help you recover maximum compensation in your case.

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, a 32-year-old man has been arrested for his role in a fatal car accident in Memphis, Tennessee, on August 3, 2011. The crash occurred on Interstate 240 in South Memphis.Â Memphis police reported the man was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe when he crashed into another vehicle on Interstate 240 near South Parkway.Â A 4-year-old boy in that SUV was killed and a 15-month-old baby in the SUV was injured.Â After crashing into the SUV, the man fled the scene, running into two other cars on his way out.Â Police located the driver later that night and charged him with driving under the influence (â€śDUIâ€ť), reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, and vehicular assault.
A drunk driving accident can occur anywhere, including Interstate 40, Interstate 240, and Interstate 55 in Shelby County.Â If you have lost a loved one in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost income.Â At Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť), we are aware of the many ways a family member can suffer after losing a loved one.Â While aggressively pursuing maximum compensation on behalf of clients, we are sympathetic towards their situation and the difficulties they face during this complicated period.Â To learn more about the Tennessee auto accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz, call 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004 today.
In a car accident lawsuit, a client may be able to recover compensation from a negligent driverâ€™s insurance company.Â However, if a defendant driver does not have insurance, NST Law can file an Uninsured Motorist claim for maximum compensation.Â To help clients recover maximum damages, NST lawyers utilize experts from various fields.Â If a deceased incurs medical bills between the accident and his death, NST Law can consult with doctors to document those bills.Â These expenses may include surgeries, X-rays, and medication.Â A second type of expert NST Law may retain is a vocational economist.Â This expert can project the lost income the deceased would have earned over the course of his lifetime.Â In addition, NST Law can retain psychiatric experts to determine the pain, suffering, and emotional distress that surviving family members experience following the tragic accident.Â Finally, since driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal in Tennessee, your NST lawyer may pursue punitive damages if the defendant driver has been convicted of DUI.
