Personal Injury

Our Nashville personal injury lawyers represent individuals either in settlement negotiations or at trial who have been injured due to the negligence or intentional acts of others. Cole Law Group is not a high volume personal injury firm. We are highly selective in the personal injury cases we decide to take. The types of cases that we will consider include, but are not limited to the following:

Car Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, and Trucking Accidents

The attorneys at Cole Law Group represent clients involved in major accidents that result in serious injuries and/or property damage. This area of focus encompasses individuals involved in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents and any bodily injuries sustained due to distracted operation of a vehicle. If the at fault driver has no insurance or inadequate coverage, you the victim may be entitled to recover from your own insurance company through an uninsured motorist policy.

Products Liability Cases

Products liability cases occur when someone is injured by a defective product. Normally, there are three different types of products liability cases:

  1. Design Defects liability which occurs when the inherent design of a product is defective;
  2. Manufacturing Defects liability which occurs during the actual construction or production of the product if the product departs from its intended design.
  3. Failure to Warn Defects liability which occurs when a company fails to include in the marketing of the product any potential side effects to the consumer.

Premises Liability Cases

If you are injured on the premises or property of another individual or business, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. This includes “slip and fall” injuries that occur on private property, government property, or on property owned by a business. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident, our personal injury attorneys in Nashville will review the injuries sustained, relevant law, and evidence to determine who may be liable and if you the victim are entitled to compensation.

Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another. It is defined in Tennessee Code Annotated section 20-5-106 as death caused by “injuries received from another” or “the wrongful act, omission, or killing by another.” Wrongful death is a civil rather than criminal complaint. The standard of proof is lower than in a criminal case and the liability is only for monetary damages. A wrongful death suit may be filed by a member of the family, such as a surviving spouse, surviving children, or surviving parents (if the deceased was a minor or still dependent on parents), or by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate. Circumstances that may give rise to a wrongful death lawsuit include vehicular accidents, toxic torts, medical malpractice, products liability, or criminal actions. For the family of the deceased, monetary damages may be sought for medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of inheritance, loss of the love and support of the deceased, and loss of wages and potential future earnings. In light of the statute of limitations for filing wrongful death cases, and to avoid the disappearance of evidence and witnesses, you should contact one of our Nashville personal injury attorneys as soon as possible to discuss your potential case. We handle wrongful death cases with great care and compassion, but also with aggressive representation to ensure that our clients are properly compensated.

Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Defense

If you are an individual who has had a wrongful death claim brought against you and has received a denial of coverage letter from your insurance company, our attorneys may be able to assist you by pursuing your insurance company for wrongful denial of coverage. Our firm also represents individuals and businesses who have been sued for alleged negligence. If you are a defendant who is confronted with a wrongful death lawsuit, we can help you build a case based upon procedural or affirmative defenses.

Call us to set up a consultation at (615) 490-6020 or send us a message via the Contact Page on our website. Our Nashville personal injury attorneys will give you an honest case assessment and straightforward analysis of whether or not it is prudent for you to pursue compensation.
