Memphis Personal Injury FAQ

When you’ve suffered an accident because someone else was careless, you need to move fast to get the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, that’s not always simple. Often, you’re left with more questions than answers at the beginning of a lawsuit.

Fortunately, that’s what Gray Law Group is here for. We want you to feel confident about your case so you know how much we can help you on your way to recovery. If you have any questions for us, see the FAQ below or give us a call to get started.

What types of damages can I file for?

Generally, damages fall into two categories: economic and non-economic. The first are the damages we usually think of: medical expenses, property damages, and lost wages. Non-economic damages cover anything that doesn’t have a price tag on it but still causes suffering. Hardships like severe pain and mental anguish are included here.

How do I calculate my damages?

Economic damages are simple. You’ll need to add up the bills you have and then estimate the future expenses like planned surgeries. Non-economic damages, however, usually call for the help of a lawyer. We’ll have the tools to quantify such subjective losses.

Who is responsible for paying for my damages?

Often, the person who caused your accident is the person at fault, but in some cases, another group or person may be liable for the actions of the negligent party. For example, if you slip and fall in a store, the owner, not an employee who left a puddle on the floor, may be responsible for your damages.

What laws could keep me from my compensation?

The statute of limitations and negligence laws will be the biggest obstacles for your case. First, you only have a year to file—any later, and you’ll be unable to receive compensation. And if the defendant claims that you’re partly responsible, under modified comparative negligence, you could lose part or all of your compensation.

How can a personal injury lawyer help me?

A personal injury lawyer can fight for your claim and make sure you don’t lose your compensation because of the tricks of the other side. Your attorney can also guide you through the whole process, making sure you have everything submitted on time and ready for your case.
