    If you think the other driver was at fault and you were injured in the wreck, you need to consult with your own attorney. The insurance company will only provide you a lawyer if you get sued.

    Most auto insurance policies cover a "permissive" driver. The insurance company's position may be due to the fact that the driver of the car did not have "permission" to use the car and therefore is not covered. More likely, however, the insurance company is simply hoping that you will accept its position and not file a claim. If in fact there is no coverage for the driver under the owner's policy, there may be other avenues to pursue. For instance, do you know if the driver has a policy...

  3. Does a notice of claim of medical malpractice require specific allegations or only that medical malpractice allegedly occurred?

    The information required in the notice is VERY specific, as is the manner in which the notice must be sent. This is all set forth in the statute. I would not recommend that anyone attempt to provide pre-suit notice unless they have consulted with an experienced Tennessee medical malpractice attorney. An error in pre-suit notice can be fatal to your claim.

    Believe it or not, the simply question "How long do I have to file a malpractice lawsuit in Tennessee?" can be difficult to answer. The safest thing to do is to take action within one year of the injury. Please follow the link below to an article I wrote on the subject. It provides a more detailed explanation of the time limitations in a medical malpractice case. However, you should not attempt to evaluate the statute of limitations or file a medical malpractice case on your own....

    If there is a balance left on the loan, you will be responsible for the amount despite the fact that your car is totaled. If you have auto insurance coverage, the insurance company will either pay to have the car repaired or will pay you the value of the car, which can sometimes be less than the amount owed. Your insurance company will then attempt to collect money from the insurance company of the person who caused the wreck. If you do not have insurance and the person who hit your car does...

    From you question, it looks like you potentially have two separate issues. First, if your husband's burn injuries were caused by the negligence of another person or the occurred at work, he has a potential lawsuit against the negligent third party and/or his employer that could help pay for medical bills and lost wages. If this is the case, the negligent third-party and/or his employer would likely be responsible for all the medical bills, including the additional bills caused by the...

  7. Friend of mine fell down my front steps she hurt back but it was wet and she had flip flops on now trying to make landlord pay

    Your landlord would be responsible for your friend's injury only if the property was in an unreasonably dangerous condition, the landlord had notice of the dangerous condition, and the landlord failed to act reasonably to fix the problem. The person who fell would also have to prove that her injuries were caused by the fall. Based on your submission, it is not clear whether the steps were defective or dangerous, or whether your friend simply slipped due to her own carelessness. For a more...

    This is a complicated question to answer. In Tennessee, priority for filing a wrongful death claim generally goes to a spouse, or child, or parent, or administrator/executor of an estate. However, there are ways for a person to bring a wrongful death claim if the family members do not wish to. Regardless of who brings the claim, there are strict rules on how money will be disbursed if the claim prevails. You really need to speak with an experienced wrongful/personal injury attorney about...

    Tennessee has procedural hurdles that must be met before a lawsuit can be filed for medical malpractice. These hurdles are very technical and if not done correctly, the lawsuit can be thrown out. The best thing you can do for you and your family is to find a Tennessee medical malpractice attorney to assist you with these issues. Make sure the attorney has experience with medical malpractice cases, because most lawyers will not have a proper understanding of all of the technical requirements...
