I highly recommend this attorney and his office. My son and I had been in a very bad accident and I was confused on whom to trust and where to turn. Mr. Gordon actually cared about what we were dealing with and how we felt. I highly recommend this office to everyone as I am very happy with the entire process. He also reduced his fees in order to ensure that we were taken care of which I've never heard of an attorney doing. You will be happy with this office and Mr. Gordon. Again I highly recommend them and would hire them for anything.

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 Memphis car accident attorney David E. Gordon today.

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 Memphis. 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.
