Guys listen! My Attorneys Jill Crouch and Brent who run the place are the most proficient accident attorneys I've ever witnessed! No lie, I got awarded an amount bigger than a yearly salary from an 18 wheeler accident settlement through them!! (If you know, you know!) I get paid sometime this month! It took less than a year to settle and the ONLY reason it took that long was because the treatment was extensive and needed months to complete. If you're EVER in an accident in the state of Tennessee, MCMAHAN LAW FIRM NEEDS TO BE YOUR FIRST CALL AFTER THE AMBULANCE!!! THIS GROUP OF ATTORNEYS ARE CHANGING, SAVING AND REVIVING LIVES!! TRUE STORY!

The Personal Injury Claims Process in Tennessee

Filing a lawsuit for a personal injury claim with The McMahan Law Firm involves several steps to make sure your rights are protected and you receive fair compensation:

  1. Get a Free Case Review: We start by offering you a free case review to understand the details of your situation. If you are eligible to file a Tennessee personal injury claim, we will get to work immediately on your case.
  2. Gather Evidence and Build Your Case: Your attorney collaborates with you to gather evidence, including medical records, witness statements, and other relevant documentation that proves the losses you’ve suffered due to the other person’s reckless or careless behavior.
  3. Negotiate Fair Compensation: We skillfully negotiate with the insurance company to secure the fair compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.
  4. Take Your Case to Court (if Necessary): If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, we are prepared to take your case to court to advocate for your rights.
  5. Receive Your Settlement: Finally, you are offered your settlement and your attorney will give their legal advice on what you may choose to do. Accepting or denying the settlement will always be your decision. We even stick by your side to be sure your check comes on time.

An Insurance Claim Denial Is Not the End of the Road

Insurance claim denials can be common and disheartening, but they are not the final verdict. It’s important to remember that you have the option to appeal a denied claim. Time is of the essence, though–if you’ve received a claim denial, you have a limited time to file an appeal. Contact our personal injury law firm in Chattanooga to find out whether appealing a denied insurance claim is the right option for you.
