Auto Accidents on Highways & Tennessee State Route 840

When the state of Tennessee first opened Route 840, the general public celebrated what they believed was great news. While it has helped to alleviate some of the traffic around the Nashville area, it has also increased the risk for auto accidents as more and more individuals are taking Route 840. Additionally, Route 840 is a popular road for commercial truck drivers. As such, trucking accidents have been occurring with greater frequency along this corridor.

Due to the escalated speed involved, motor vehicle accidents that occur on the highway are often more catastrophic. They often involve tremendous property damage, serious personal injuries and, in the worst cases, death. Since opening our doors in 1977, we have handled a great deal of highway accident cases. Our team at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge will take the time to listen to your story, give you a detailed consultation, and fight for just compensation.

If you injured in a highway accident, you will be contacted by at least one insurance agent—probably more than one. Talk with one of our lawyers before speaking with them. Although they seem to be there to help you, they are experts at finding ways to minimize and deny claims of injured parties. We have the experience to negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf—to protect your right to full and fair compensation.

What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Following a serious car accident, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is gather important information. However, there are some instances where you may not be in a position to gather information at the accident scene; for example, if an accident is serious enough to warrant emergency medical attention.

If possible, there are several things that should be done following an accident, including:

  • Get the other driver's insurance information
  • Get the other driver's personal information
  • Contact local law enforcement
  • Contact your insurance carrier

Gathering this information can make it easier to work with the insurance carriers in the future as you are filing your claim or attempting to recover compensation from the liable party's insurance company. If you have any question regarding your case or options for recovery, contact an attorney at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge.

Dealing with the Insurance Company After a Crash

Insurance companies are multi-billion dollar companies. They have the resources to quickly and thoroughly investigate accident scenes to protect their own financial interests and limit or deny compensation for accident victims. You may feel overwhelmed going up against such a Goliath. We understand, and we are prepared to help.

The attorneys at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies and can help you gain equal footing. Insurance professionals handle these cases every day. So do we. We are prepared to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and other hardships.

If you have been injured by a careless or negligent driver, you may be interviewed by that person's insurance provider, as well as your own. It is important to speak with an experienced attorney before making any statement to an insurance adjuster. While it may seem like they are trying to help you, they are most interested in protecting themselves.

Our auto accident lawyers know how to handle insurance negotiations and can handle all of the communication on your behalf. We know what your case is worth and have the skill and experience to protect your rights. We can also help you with the complex issues that come into play with health insurance and personal injury accidents.

Uninsured / Underinsured Coverage

In some cases, your own insurance coverage is the best source of financial compensation. If the driver who caused your car crash did not have insurance or did not have enough insurance to cover the damages, you may be able to draw upon your own uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage. Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge can help you with all of the insurance issues you encounter in the wake of your accident so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
