How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Injury Attorney in Nashville?
You may have heard the term “contingency-fee basis.” That refers to the payment arrangement we extend to many of our clients. Here, we don’t charge upfront rates or payments. We take a percentage of your settlement to account for our services.
As noted, we also offer free case reviews. This gives you the chance to share your story and explore your legal options. There is no obligation to partner with us when you call. We want to put your mind at ease in the aftermath of your slip and fall.

We Advocate for Those Who Have Fallen in These Locations
Whether you fell on or public or private property, you have legal rights. All property owners, regardless of whether they own a business or a house, must keep lawful visitors safe. This may entail placing warning signs, removing hazards, or even sealing off dangerous areas. If another party knew (or should have known) about a hazard on their premises, and you slipped and fell, they could have liability for your losses.
Our attorneys advocate for people who have slipped and fallen in:
- Grocery stores
- Big box department stores
- Parking lots and parking garages
- Entrances to public buildings
- Swimming pool areas
- Theme parks
- Public institutions, such as schools and libraries
- Hotels and resorts
Don’t let the other party downplay your accident and injuries. You have rights under the law.

You Can Recover These Damages After Your Nashville Slip and Fall
Compensatory damages in Tennessee fall into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages are losses that come with billing statements and invoices. They apply to your direct monetary losses. Examples include:
- Healthcare expenses, including ambulance rides and doctors’ visits
- Lost income, tips, commissions, gigs, and bonuses
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Assistive devices, such as wheelchairs
- Temporary transportation costs
- Childcare expenses
Non-economic damages refer to your personal struggles. They do not come with supporting documentation. Instead, we evaluate their values based on your situation. Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental trauma
This isn’t an exhaustive list of damages you can seek via a claim or lawsuit.
What Is Tennessee’s Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases?
Tennessee Code § 28-3-104 explains that you have one year to file your slip and fall accident lawsuit. Our filing period generally begins from the date of your fall. This is a very strict deadline. Filing your case within this deadline preserves your right to damages and allows you to file a lawsuit. Missing the deadline invalidates your right to damages—even if you suffered serious harm.
Our law firm has many obligations when managing your case. One of those obligations is managing its deadlines. Cory Watson Attorneys will preserve your right to damages by tracking your case’s statute of limitations. You can learn more about this process during your free case evaluation.
