Managing Communication with the Insurance Company after a Car Accident in Morristown

No matter the type or extent of the injury that you have suffered, you deserve to be compensated if your accident was due to someone else’s negligence from drunk driving, distracted driving, texting while driving, car defects, motorcycle riders, truck drivers, pedestrians, or cyclists. Unfortunately, many insurance companies will actively work to deny or reduce valid claims for compensation. Insurance adjusters may try to get you to make statements that could ultimately hurt your case, or they may try to pressure you into accepting a lowball settlement offer. Our attorneys will not allow an insurance company to take advantage of you during this stressful time.

Dealing with Hospital Liens & Medical Bills After a Car Accident

In Tennessee, hospitals can file liens to try to recover bills you have incurred. Our law firm has found that hospitals often file liens in an amount that is higher than they are entitled to recover. The knowledgeable auto accident attorneys at The Terry Law Firm will protect you from these unfair over-billing tactics.

How Do I Pay for My Car Accident Injuries?

If you have been involved in a car wreck case, there are generally three (3) avenues for payment of medical expenses. 

  1. The first and most common method of payment is for persons who have been injured to pay for their medical care with their own health insurance. This does not create any problems and, in fact, most of the time this is what we recommend at The Terry Law Firm.
  2. Persons involved in car wreck cases can use something referred to as “med pay” to pay for some of their medical bills associated with their car wreck case. “Med pay” coverage is coverage afforded by your automobile insurance to pay for injuries sustained in the car wreck. 
  3. Occasionally, persons will be on the job working when they are injured in a car wreck. In these circumstances, sometimes it is best to use workers’ compensation to pay for your injuries sustained in a car wreck.  

If one of these methods is not available to you, contact The Terry Law Firm at our Morristown, Greeneville, or Sevierville office.

Will My Insurance Rates Go Up If I Use Uninsured Motorist Coverage?

Under Tennessee law, insurance carriers cannot raise your insurance as a result of a person utilizing their uninsured motorist coverage. Tennessee law states explicitly that if you are in an accident that is no fault of your own, your insurance carrier cannot raise your insurance rates due to your use of uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage that you purchased.
