    Answered . most definately. ironically, i handled an atv claim in Humphreys county which
    as you know is near Memphis, and resolved it for a high six figure settlement.
    the main problem may very well be whether or not you knew or should have knew
    that he was drinking. also, liability insurance may be a problem. I handle
    serious personal injury claims in the state of Tn and adjoining states. i
    certainly wouldnt have a problem discussing your options with you. but do not
    give a statement to anyone until we have spoken. they are looking for ways not
    to pay you all you may be entitled to. we could speak by phone and i will be in
    Memphis in trial the middle of next month and can meet in person with you and
    your family. My number is 615-859-1996 and my cell number is 615-585-7655. i
    am available for you tommorrow and all weekend. i would deeply appreciate the
    opportunity to speak with you more. Tim
