Claims after crashes must be handled logically

Many things happen in the days and weeks after a car crash. For innocent victims, having to navigate through medical appointments and insurance claims can be very stressful. This is especially true if you aren't feeling your best. We understand how hard this is and are here to help you work through the legal aspects of your case.

Why slip-and-fall accidents are nothing to laugh at

If you are an old movie buff or enjoy watching reruns of old black-and-white TV comedies, you know how people used to laugh at slapstick comedy wherein a woebegone “hero” took numerous pratfalls to the glee of bystanders. Some people still enjoy this type of humor, but if you are the victim of a Tennessee slip-and-fall accident, you also know that these falls are nothing to laugh at. You can be seriously hurt, and one of the most fearsome injuries you may receive is a traumatic brain injury, a head injury that causes your brain to malfunction.

Emotional distress after a crash might occur

The effects that you might have to deal with after a car crash can range from irritations up to life-altering issues. You have to consider the totality of the impacts when you are trying to determine the damages you will seek as part of a personal injury claim. This isn't always easy to figure out because of the vast number of problems that can occur.

Administering an estate can be complex

The weeks and months after the death of a loved one are filled with emotions. When your loved one died with an estate plan in place, you might be able to rest a little easier because you won't have to try to figure out how to divvy up the estate. Instead, you will have a plan to follow.

Debts in an estate are typically the estate's responsibility

The debts of an estate have to be dealt with by the estate administrator. There is a specific order that these must be handled in. All debts have a priority level for these cases. Knowing what should be paid first is important since the estate might not be large enough to pay off all the debts.
