Nashville Car Accident Attorneys

It is no secret that Nashville, TN is booming.  People and businesses alike are flocking to Tennessee's capitol city.  Everyone knows Nashville is called Music City USA, but Nashville is much more than just music.  You can relax at Centennial Park, tour the beautiful Parthenon, visit Hattie B's or Prince's for some hot chicken, catch a Tennessee Titans or Nashville Predators game, and enjoy Broadway all in one day.   In fact, Nashville is a sports' fan's heaven.  Within walking distance or a short ride-share trip, not only do you have professional football and hockey, but you also have SEC athletics (Vanderbilt University), MLS soccer (Nashville FC) and baseball (Nashville Sounds).  The "Vandy Boys" as they're called, are a perennial NCAA baseball power!  

But, Nashville is Music City USA for a reason.  World-class musicians play in honky tonks everyday.  Downtown boasts additional music venues like the Country Music Hall of Fame, Ryman Auditorium, and Ascend Amphitheater.  Bridgestone Arena hosts concerts and the Music City Center is a world-class convention center.  And, if you need a break from the relentless energy of downtown Nashville, the surrounding neighborhoods of East Nashville, 12th South, and Germantown offer fine dining and eclectic experiences. 

Dangerous Nashville Roads

While there’s no doubt that tourism is great for Nashville, these added travelers also mean more motor vehicles on the road. And more motor vehicles on the road means more dangerous driving conditions. While collisions can happen anywhere, there are definitely a few spots in Nashville where accidents are more likely. Take extra care at the following roads and intersections—or better yet, avoid them completely. 

I-40 at I-24

Interstate-40 is already considered the deadliest highway in Tennessee, according to data from the NHTSA. But the interchange between Nashville’s busiest east-west and north-south interstates is exceptionally busy, especially during rush hour—and with people prone to distracted driving and speeding, this hotspot is notorious for all sorts of accidents from fender-benders to fatal crashes.

I-24 Near Briley Parkway

Located on the north side of Nashville, this section of road is a main artery for incoming commuters. High traffic volumes and speeding drivers make this corridor a high-risk area for serious and fatal traffic accidents.

I-24 Near Antioch

Just east of Nashville, I-24 intersects with Highway 41 (also known as Bell Road) near the town of Antioch. Every year, thousands of travelers use this intersection to reach their destinations in and around Brentwood, making the area incredibly dangerous. In fact, this is one of the most accident-prone sections of Interstate 24 in Tennessee, with dozens of fatalities recorded each year.

Hickory Hollow Parkway at Mount View Road, Antioch

It’s worth noting that all of Antioch itself could be considered a Nashville accident hotspot due in part to commuters speeding along narrow roads with minimal signage. But there is a consensus among the locals and statisticians alike that the intersection of Hickory Hollow Parkway and Mount View Road is the most dangerous in Metro Nashville. While it’s not known for exceptionally high traffic volume, the road curves so drivers can’t see the stop sign until they are right upon it.

Nolensville Pike Near Harding Place

Until recently, the section of road along Nolensville Pike between Harding Place and Welshwood Drive was considered the most dangerous pedestrian crossing area in Nashville due to an inordinate number of pedestrian fatalities over the years. While improvements to sidewalks and additional crossing signage have made this area safer for pedestrians over the past few years, Nolensville Pike itself is still quite narrow for the traffic congestion it now endures, making it prone to rear-end collisions and sideswipes. 

What Makes Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers Different

Our car accident lawyers used to work for insurance companies, so they understand what the insurance companies and insurance lawyers are trying to accomplish.  However, our attorneys use this inside knowledge of the insurance industry to your advantage.  Attorneys Joe Weir and Tony Kestner will fight to protect your right to a full and fair recovery from the negligent driver. Along with our top-quality personal injury legal services, we are unique in that we are dedicated to providing:

Support

From day one, our focus is on relieving your stress and helping you get better. When you come to us, we will help you with your immediate needs rather than overwhelming you with legal jargon and deadlines. When you’re ready, we will make a plan for moving forward and help you understand every step we take.

Communication

We pride ourselves on our open lines of communication and our quick response time with clients. We treat each of our clients as if they are our only client and you will have direct contact with our attorneys. We take the time to answer all of your questions.

Don’t Settle for Less Than What You Deserve

When you have been seriously injured in a car accident that wasn't your fault, you have a right to be compensated by the at-fault party. The insurance company for that driver, however, does not want you to know that. They will do their best to protect their bottom line, which means paying you as little as they can get away with. When you work with Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers, we will fight to get you the damages you deserve, including the following:

Medical Bills 

The compensation you get should cover all of your past, current, and future medical expenses. Our knowledgeable team will consult with doctors to determine what your medical needs are and what they will cost.

Permanent Impairment 

If the crash left you permanently disabled, special consideration will have to be given to your future financial needs. Our attorneys have experience in valuing these kinds of claims and will make sure you are fully compensated.

Pain And Suffering 

These damages are intended to compensate you for the pain you have suffered and the trauma you have endured as a result of the accident. Because there is no price tag on pain, it can be difficult to calculate these damages, but our attorneys are experienced in documenting pain and suffering.

Lost Wages 

If you are unable to work because of the injuries you suffered, you should be compensated for the income you have lost, as well as any sick or vacation time you have had to take to recover.

It takes skill and experience to negotiate for the full value of your claim, and our attorneys have what it takes.

You Pay Nothing Up Front

We don’t charge our clients a dime until we are able to resolve their claim successfully. Because of this contingency fee arrangement, it costs you nothing up front to work with our experienced attorneys. While we do the work, you can focus on getting your life back to what it was before the accident.
