Johnson City Car Accident Lawyer for Crashes

Johnson City Car Accident Lawyer for Crashes

Many victims who are injured in Tennessee vehicle accidents suffer injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the crash and how badly the victim was injured, they often face physical, emotional, and financial losses from their injuries. While many victims suffer temporary losses, there are also many who suffer permanent losses.

These losses can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more. If the crash was caused by the negligent actions of another party, then that party can be held legally responsible for the victim’s losses. A Johnson City car accident lawyer for crashes from the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt can explain what your legal options may be.

In many crashes, it is another driver who is liable for the victim’s losses. However, there are also many cases where a third party may also be liable for the victim’s losses because they own the vehicle the at-fault driver was operating or have some other type of legal responsibility for the driver’s actions.

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, each Johnson City car accident lawyer for crashes has successfully represented clients in many third-party liability claims and lawsuits and understand the complexities that can be involved in these cases, as well as the solid evidence needed to prove the case.

Some of the more common possibilities of third parties that can be held responsible in these types of cases include:

Trucking Companies: Although commercial truck drivers are required to obtain their commercial driver’s license (CDL) and adhere to stringent rules and regulations set forth by federal and state governments, it is ultimately a trucking company’s responsibility to ensure that the truck drivers they employ are qualified, trained, and have clean driving records. If a company hires an unsafe driver who causes a crash, Tennessee law holds that company responsible for losses victims of these accidents suffer.

Employers: It is not just trucking companies who are responsible for the actions of their employees when that employee is engaged in work activities. Some examples of these types of third-party cases include delivery drivers, utility workers, movers, personal assistants, bus drivers, and more.

Vehicle Owners: The legal doctrine of negligent entrustment can leave a vehicle owner liable for the losses of a victim if they owned the vehicle that the at-fault driver was operating. If a Johnson City car accident lawyer for crashes can show that the vehicle owner knew that the driver was reckless, inexperienced, under the influence, or other situation then the owner can be held liable for the victim’s damages.

Parents: Once a teenager has their license, it is not uncommon for parents to let the teen use their vehicles or even purchase the teen driver their own car. It is the parents’ responsibility to make sure their teen is supervised and to ensure they are safe drivers. Failure to do so could leave the parents liable should the teen cause a car accident that results in victim injuries.

Each year, countless people die in car and vehicle crashes in Tennessee, and thousands more are injured. Medical costs are in the tens of millions of dollars, which does not include pain and suffering, permanent injuries, and (tragically) the loss of our loved ones.

Johnson City is no stranger to car accidents and crashes, as well other vehicle accidents. As personal injury attorneys serving Johnson City and the surrounding communities, we are available to represent those injured, and their families, in seeking to recover full and fair compensation for accidents and crashes.

If you have been injured in a car crash caused by someone else, or if a loved one has been killed, we would invite you to call our firm for a free consultation to learn how we can help.

We offer –

  • A free, no obligation consultation for your car crash case. Once we learn about your injuries and damages, we can explain the types of damages and compensation to which you may be entitled, and how we will work on your behalf.
  • Tenacious representation. We’re not about seeking quick settlements for pennies on the dollar. Instead we’re prepared to fight for full compensation for our clients, and ready to take their cases to court and let a jury determine liability and damages.
  • A proven track record of success. Firm founding attorney Mark Hurt has represented countless clients in settlement and at trial, and recovered for them millions of dollars. While we can never promise a successful outcome for any client, we do have a proven record of success.
  • The trial and litigation experience needed to pursue full compensation. If we represent you, you’ll work directly with Mark Hurt. We don’t delegate cases to junior associates. Attorney Mark Hurt will be representing you throughout your case, keeping you informed as your case progresses.
  • The advancement of litigation costs on behalf of our clients. It can cost thousands (and sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars to fully litigate a case. These costs can include mediation and deposition costs, the costs of accident reconstructionists, expert fees to prove fault, pain and suffering, and other matters, court costs, and many other associated costs. We believe that if you’ve been injured, your focus should be on recovering. We know that if you’ve been badly injured, you may not be able to work, which will usually result in a financial hardship. Our firm advances these costs on your behalf while your case is progressing, so that you don’t need to be concerned about paying these costs while you are recovering (these costs are then normally deducted from a court award or settlement).
  • There is no fee for our firm unless compensation is recovered. We take the full risk for getting paid for our time, which provides a great incentive for us to work hard on your behalf in seeking the maximum recovery to which you may be entitled.

In the interim, the following is important information to know if you’ve been involved in a car accident or other vehicle crash.

How Much Can I Recover for Pain and Suffering in a Car Crash?

If you’ve been injured in a car crash or vehicle accident, you are entitled to full and fair compensation for the pain and suffering that you endured as a result of the crash. In a lawsuit, important factors usually considered in making this determination include:

  • The severity of the pain
  • How long the pain lasted (including whether the pain is likely to last on a long-term basis)
  • The pain that you may have suffered as a result of medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • If you will need future surgery or medical treatment, the amount of pain that you will have to endure at a later time
  • The psychological pain that you may have to endure, which can include matters such as sleeplessness, physical scarring (and the resulting social stigma), and other matters.
  • Loss of companionship and relations with a spouse, as well as lifestyle interference (such as if you can no longer participate in a favorite activity, such as playing sports with your children).

As your legal counsel, our role is to detail the full pain and suffering that you have suffered so that fair consideration can be obtained.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Case?

Our sincere condolences if a family member has died as the result of a car crash or other vehicle accident caused by someone else.

Generally, if a person has died, the eligible family members will be entitled to recover compensation for the following:

  • The fair market value of the lost wages that would have otherwise been earned
  • Medical expenses and other costs incurred
  • Property damaged (such as vehicles that were totaled)
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of consortium – the loss of affection suffered by a spouse or other family members as the result of the death of the loved one
  • Other damages and expenses arising from the crash that otherwise would not have been incurred.

The foregoing is only a very brief list of damages that may be recoverable; there may be additional types of damages that may apply in your case (and not all of the damages noted above may apply). When we meet with you, we can explain what damages may be applicable relating to your loved one’s death.

Understanding Liens and How the Amount of Your Settlement or Verdict May Be Reduced

If you’ve been in a car crash and your vehicle has been totaled or damaged, and you have incurred medical and/or other expenses, the insurance company(ies) that paid for your damaged vehicle and medical expenses will have a lien against any proceeds recovered through a settlement or jury verdict. Additionally, if the federal government paid for treatment through Medicare or Medicaid, the federal government will also be entitled to reimbursement for the amounts that they have paid.

In settlement negotiations, it will be important to take into consideration the amounts of all liens that insurance companies and others may have on compensation that may be recovered. As your legal counsel, our firm can advise you as to the liens that may exist, and whether it may be possible to seek a reduction in the amount of such liens (so that you can keep more of the settlement proceeds or trial award).

I contacted the law offices of Mark T. Hurt regarding a traffic ticket I received. Initially I was concerned because I live between Florida and New York, and with Virginia being midway, handling my ticket would be a major inconvenience, and I wanted to keep my record free of any infractions.Choosing Mark T. Hurt to represent me was the best choice I made, and it was further improved with the assistance of Rhonda, who contacted me once they received my request. Rhonda is one of those unique people who has mastered the fine line between being perfectly professional and friendly. Every conversation we had, was made to feel as if I were speaking to a close friend. One of the most appreciated aspects of working with her was her understanding and respectful of my schedule and time.For my work, I have a hectic schedule and very few free moments, so being able to handle things quickly and effectively is a priority for me, and Rhonda understood that and took care of everything as if she knew exactly what I was expecting. I even got sick while working with Rhonda, and her first comment was to wish me well. She also went out of her way to find solutions regarding my traffic citation that worked around my schedule. The price was fair, and when considering the quality of work and more importantly, the quality of people you will be reliant upon to ensure the best possible outcome for whatever your situation is, they can ask for 10x more than what I paid and it would still be worth it.All in all, recommendation for this law office, and for Rhonda herself, could not be higher. If you are searching for someone to represent you in any legal matter whatsoever, this is the office to work with. Thank you again Rhonda.

I'm not a Virgina resident and had found this firm through Google. I have a traffic violation case in tennessee and was desperate to get awnsers. This law office's staff was so helpful even though I wasn't able to even be a client, I believe the person who awnsered was Ashley. After their direction on finding another attorney and my case I was able to push my court date back and will be able to find someone to represent me.I'm not even a client, they didn't have to help me at all! I just wish they practiced in the tri cities area! Would recommend this group!

Late in July I was charged with a reckless driving ticket in Greenville County, Virginia. I got caught going 83mph in a 55mph zone. It was my first offense on my driving record and I did not need a misdemeanor which could hurt my career. I was assured by Mrs Rhonda Hurt not to worry and that her team would take care of it. On my end, the only effort I put in was taking a 12 hour defensive driving course and sending her my driving record. Two months later, the result of my hearing was a reduction to a defective equipment/non driving violation with 0 points off my record. The other good part about this case was I did not have to go to court. In court fees I paid $68 and a fine of $78 for my ticket. Mrs. Rhonda and her team put together a miracle in that county and I cannot give her enough credit. I sincerely recommend this firm because I know they worked hard on my case and will do the same for you. Thank you again!

I got a traffic ticket while I traveled passing through VA in May.It is a big deal if you have the Law Section: 44-1/46/2-862 and speeding excess of 80 MPH in your ticket. It is a Criminal Misdemeanor Reckless Driving Charge!I saw Mark T. Hurt's Law office simple letter, I decided to give a call and get a free consultation.From the call, Rhonda provided a detail explaining the criminal charge of the Misdemeanor Reckless Driving ticket is about. She is a very caring and honest person, no sale pressure to me to take their law office at all.Once I decided to use their firm to represent me in court, it didn't take an hour, I was told totake some actions and wait for cout day to see the result. That is that simple and no worry at all. On the court date, I received text messages from lawyer's office. Guess what? The lawyer did a miraculous and fantastic job for me in the court.The Reckless Driving Misdemeanor ticket has been reduced to an Improper Driving traffic ticket.Thanks to Mark T. Hurt's Law office team! They are not only very professional and transparent but also does the best quality job you can find. I strongly recommend them to be your lawyer if you need one in VA.

Having landed a Reckless Driving (99 in a 65) on my way back to FL from WV, I came across this law firm when searching something along "best reckless driving lawyers Virginia."Mr. Hurt's firm dropped my "Criminal Misdemeanor" to an improper driving. Which from my understanding is right next to a normal speeding ticket.All expenses accounted (payment, court cost, fine), I'm out roughly $1,100 ; but I'd much rather pay that once today, than every six months to an insurance company for the next... God knows how many years. I am extremely grateful and overjoyed with my outcome.As far as speaking with the great ladies at these offices, everyone was always kind, quick, and considerate. They answered all my questions, explained all my options and possible outcomes. I had a clean record, and had now experience dealing with courts or lawyers, so their patience and knowledge was especially helpful. If I ever screw up again (I pray to God I don't) I hope it's in Virginia, so I can call upon Mr. Hurt's offices.

I received a personalized letter from Mark assuring me that he and his team was on the job and was going to see my case through to the end while keeping me looped in.Thank you for all your help and persistence to see the great outcome I received.I highly recommend anyone to use the Law Offices of Mark T.
