Aggressive and Compassionate Personal Injury Lawyer in Nashville
A passionate advocate for victims of undue injury
Personal injuries occur when an individual suffers harm as the result of an accident or incident caused by negligence. If you have been seriously injured because of another person’s or party’s wrongdoing, I can help you file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for the damages you suffer. I’ve been a practicing Nashville personal injury attorney for more than a decade, and I understand the physical, emotional and financial setbacks a serious injury can impose. With the help of the Stover Law Group, you can recover the compensation you deserve for your injury and associated damages, including coverage of medical costs, property repair or replacement, lost wages due to missed work days and pain and suffering.
Types of personal injuries
In my experience as a Nashville personal injury lawyer, I’ve handled cases that involve a wide range of situations — from traffic accidents to nursing home neglect to on-the-job injuries — and everything in between. The single connecting factor that qualifies them all as personal injuries is that they resulted from negligence, carelessness or intentional wrongdoing. Some of the most common types of personal injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accident injuries – Injuries sustained in car crashes, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents or collisions with pedestrians or bicyclists. Automobile accidents that lead to personal injuries are usually caused by distracted or careless driving, failure to obey traffic laws, texting while driving, or DUI. Drunk driving is a criminal offense, and when DUI results in serious injuries, the penalties the driver faces may be heightened or maximized.
- Slip and fall accident injuries – Also known as premises accidents, these types of injuries occur when a property’s poor maintenance causes patrons or visitors to slip, or trip, and fall and hurt themselves. Specific causes of premises accidents include uneven sidewalks, ice or snow, broken stairs in a stairwell, unsafe elevators and escalators, wet floors and unstable buildings
- Occupational injuries and illnesses – Injuries or other conditions that occur as a result of a dangerous occupation, such as a construction site worker, window washer or crane or forklift operator.
