How Can Our Memphis Personal Injury
Attorneys Help You?

Tennessee Car Accident Lawyer

Repairing your car, paying medical bills, missing time at work and dealing with the pain and obstacles brought on by your injuries – Memphis car accident attorney David E. Gordon knows how chaotic and confusing your life can be after a car wreck. He is here to help you.

For more than 12 years, David has committed himself to helping auto accident victims in Memphis, Tennessee and Northern Mississippi. He can handle a wide range of cases, including those that involve:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless and aggressive driving
  • Car-motorcycle collisions

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Hit-and-run drivers
  • Car-truck collisions

It begins with a free consultation. David can review the facts of your case and explain the process that lies ahead. He can then get to work on pursuing the compensation you deserve for your physical, emotional and financial harm.

David will work with experienced investigators and accident reconstruction experts to determine why your auto accident happened and who should be held responsible for your injuries.

He will also review all forms of insurance coverage available in your case. You may be entitled to compensation through the at-fault driver’s liability coverage or through your own coverage.

David can deal directly with the insurance companies. He can seek a settlement of your claim that fully and fairly compensates you without the need to go to court or even file a lawsuit.

A settlement of your car accident claim can compensate you for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income and future diminished earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • All other accident-related expenses.

If necessary, David can take your case to court. He is a Board Certified trial lawyer. He knows how to prepare a strong, compelling case for a judge and jury. In fact, because insurance companies know he is serious about going to trial, they are often more willing to agree to a timely, reasonable settlement.

Before you talk with an insurance company, talk with David first. Don’t give a recorded statement. Don’t accept a settlement offer. Simply refer the insurance company to David. He will deal with them while you focus on getting your life back on track.

Tennessee has a very short statute of limitations. You must file a claim in state court within one year after your auto accident – or your claim could be barred. So don’t wait to take action after a crash. Get in touch with attorney David E. Gordon today.

Construction Accident Lawyer

The construction industry plays an important role in our economy in Memphis, Tennessee and Northern Mississippi. Attorney David E. Gordon believes it is important to protect the rights of those workers who make this economic progress possible – especially if they are involved in construction accidents.

If have been injured on the job at a construction site, David can help you to seek workers’ compensation benefits and all other forms of available compensation. He will explore all of your options, and he won’t rest until you receive what you are entitled to under the law.

He knows these funds are important for you and your family. When you are facing high medical bills and unable to work due to your injuries, David is a construction accident lawyer you can count on to look out for your best interests.

David Gordon

David has experience helping construction workers who have been injured in a broad range of accidents, including: 

  • Being struck by tools, building materials or other objects
  • Getting caught in machinery
  • Fires and explosions
  • Trench collapses

  • Falls from ladders, roofs or scaffolding
  • Crane and forklift accidents
  • Electrocution

 If you were hurt while on the job, David can pursue workers’ compensation benefits that can pay for all of your medical expenses – no deductibles – and replace a portion of the wages that you lose while recovering. To collect Tennessee workers’ compensation benefits, it does not matter whether you were partially at fault for your injuries.

Unfortunately, employers and their insurance companies often try to delay or deny paying valid workers’ compensation claims. David will work aggressively to pursue the benefits you are due.

David may also seek personal injury damages if you were injured in an accident that was caused by a non-employer, or “third party.” For instance, you may have been injured by a negligent driver or by a piece of defective construction equipment.

A personal injury claim can lead to a recovery of not only your medical expenses but also all lost past and future income, as well as compensation for your pain and suffering.

You can trust that David will give your case the focus and attention it deserves. He will manage it carefully and correctly at every stage.

Don’t wait to take action. You have only a limited amount of time to file a workers’ compensation or personal injury claim in Tennessee. You don’t want to allow a delay in taking action to prevent you from obtaining the funds you need and deserve. Get legal help today.
