Bus Accident Lawyer in Nashville
Call an attorney with the experience that gets results
Many people in the Nashville area rely on buses to get to their destination. When there’s a bus accident, people can be left seriously injured. If the accident was caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. Navigating the claims process can be difficult. That’s when it’s time to call Thompson Law.
Much like truck accidents, bus accidents can be complicated as multiple parties may be involved. These include the bus driver, the bus company, a government entity, the manufacturer of the bus and manufacturers of defective parts. Each party may have different lawyers and be represented by separate insurance companies.
Attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson knows how to handle complex cases. He’s been helping the injured in Davidson and surrounding counties for decades. He also knows the impact a bus accident can have on victims and their families. Victims are left seriously hurt. Medical expenses can be overwhelming. It can be hard to pay the bills during this difficult time.
An attorney who holds negligent parties accountable
That’s why attorney Kim Thompson is dedicated to fighting for the rights of victims. After a bus accident, negligent parties typically deny any responsibility. They don’t even admit to doing anything wrong. This puts you in the position of having to prove negligence.
Insurance companies aren’t on your side. They are only interested in keeping their profits as high as possible. So, they will try to keep any payouts as low as possible. They may question the extent of your injuries or argue they were pre-existing. Attorney Thompson knows all the tactics they use. He used to work for insurance companies as a claims adjuster.
The outcome of your case will depend on the facts. So that’s where attorney Thompson starts. He investigates your accident to find out what really happened. He takes steps to preserve evidence that may be controlled by bus companies. He carefully reviews accident reports and medical records. He interviews witnesses and, if needed, consults accident reconstruction experts.
A hard-working lawyer who fights for your rights
Attorney Thompson builds a strong case to hold negligent parties accountable. When insurance companies see that he is prepared and ready to fight, they see it is in their best interests to avoid court. They agree to negotiate but attorney Thompson is only interested in a settlement that meets your needs.
This includes compensation for all of your medical expenses, such as surgery, hospitalization, medication, and therapy – now and for any future treatment that is needed. It includes lost wages if you were left unable to return to work. It may include compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering. Attorney Thompson fights for the best outcome.
Your case can take time to resolve but you can expect personal attention every step of the way. Attorney Thompson will sit down with you to explain your options. He will keep you informed on how your case is progressing. If you ever have any questions, all you have to do is ask. He will return your call promptly.
