Lynchburg Personal Injury Lawyer
Lynchburg, Tennessee is the home of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Although they make the very famous whiskey, don’t try to buy it nearby as the county is a dry county and the only whiskey you will find for sale are the commemorative bottles for sale at the Jack Daniel’s gift shop. Lynchburg is the host of the wildly popular Jack Daniel World Championship Invitational Barbeque each October.
With a population of just over 6,000 (as of the 2010 consensus), this small town is proud of the fact that it has only one stoplight. It was incorporated in 1833 and has an estimated elevation and land area of 795 feet and 129.2 square miles, respectively. It is located in Moore County in Southern Middle Tennessee, which was formed in 1872 from parts of Lincoln, Franklin, Coffee, and Bedford counties.
The Law Office of John R. Colvin was established on January 1, 2001, in Winchester, Tennessee to give legal assistance to the injured and disabled in Southern Middle Tennessee. The Law Office of John R. Colvin handles personal injury actions, Social Security Disability claims, and related legal matters in Lynchburg, Tennessee on a contingency fee basis, which means my office does not charge a fee unless you recover benefits.
Injuries can be caused by many types of accidents, but some are more common than others. In Tennessee, drunk driving accidents, slip and falls, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and defective products are frequent. We can help you recover fair compensation from an insurance company or from the party responsible for your harm if you suffer a catastrophic injury or lose a loved one to wrongful death. Examples of financial compensation include:
- Medical bills
- Hospital bills
- Loss of wages
- Loss of earning ability
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Wrongful death
- Punitive damages (when the defendant has been especially reckless or negligent)
If you are injured, you have one year after the event to pursue a lawsuit for damages, so don’t hesitate to reach out for legal counsel as soon as possible. You will have peace of mind knowing that a committed advocate is on your side, demanding maximum compensation for your losses. We believe that no accident victim should bear the financial burden of their recovery, and will strive to hold the negligent party or parties accountable.
