An experienced Nashville lawyer ready to fight for you
You’ve been in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. You can file a claim for compensation with that driver’s insurance company.

Attorney Eric Beasley knows the impact that injuries from a car accident can have on victims and their families.

Experienced and aggressive representation
A crash can leave with you with serious injuries that have a significant impact on your life. You may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. Medical expenses can skyrocket just as there is less income coming in because you can’t work. Normally, your damages would be covered by insurance.
All drivers in Tennessee are required to have car insurance. Despite this requirement, there are some drivers who don’t have any insurance at all. Others only buy the minimum coverage required by law. If they cause an accident, that may not be enough to cover all the damages that were suffered.
If you chose to add uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) on your car insurance policy, you should be covered. But your compensation is limited by the amount of liability coverage you chose.
If you do not have this coverage, your options for recovering compensation are more limited. You could take legal action against the negligent driver, but that driver may have limited assets and may be unable to pay any damages you are awarded.
Another potential option for recovery is if a third party’s negligence played a role in the accident. For example, if brakes failed due to a mechanical defect, the manufacturer could be held liable for what happened.
Fighting for the best possible outcome
Attorney Beasley is not afraid of tough cases and will explore every option for helping you recover compensation. He puts in the hard work needed to get results and will guide you through the process every step of the way.
If you do have UM/UIM coverage on your policy, he can also help you recover the compensation you deserve. Even your own insurance company may try to minimize your injuries and pay you less.
