Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter recovered $300,000 (full policy limits) for a client injured in a Sevierville car accident where a drunk driver crossed the yellow line on Chapman Highway hitting him head on. Such accidents occur with alarming frequency on Chapman Highway.

Luckily, our client's family was not in the vehicle with him at the time of the crash. Our client suffered multiple abrasions and bruises but his most significant injury was a complex fracture to his ankle which required surgery and months of physical therapy. The at-fault driver was underinsured with liabilty policy limits of $50,000. Fortunately, our client had $300,000 in Underinsured/ Uninsured Coverage available under his own policy. This case really highlights the importance of carrying sufficient Underinsured/Uninsured Coverage on your auto insurance policy. You can check the Declarations Page of your Tennessee auto insurance policy to see if you have Underinsured/Uninsured Coverage and, if so, what the limits are.

We were able to recover the $50,000 policy limits available under the at-fault driver's policy just 4 weeks after the accident and then recovered the remaining $250,000 from our client's Uninsured/ Underinsured Coverage once he completed medical treatment. Our client assisted the State in the prosecution of the drunk driver that hit him as it was very important to him to do everything he could to prevent this from happening to someone else. Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter was honored to help this wonderful husband and father recover financial compensation after the devastating injuries he suffered when the at-fault driver chose to drink and drive on one of Tennessee's most dangerous highways.
