JUSTICE FOR MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT VICTIMS

At The Sexton Law Firm, we help individuals who have been involved in car, truck and motorcycle accidents find closure and obtain compensation after the accident. If you were hurt in an automobile accident, find out how our attorney can help you fight back and seek the justice you deserve.

For over 25 years, our personal injury team has proudly represented Knoxville and eastern Tennessee. We have worked with individuals hurt in auto accidents and truck-related accidents on local roads and interstate highways, while helping to hold the responsible drivers accountable for their negligence. Our founding attorney, David Sexton, is a Knoxville native who works hard to protect the rights of community members and serve clients throughout the Greater Knoxville area.

We Are Committed To Helping You Recover

With any type of motor vehicle crash in Knoxville, the issue of fault must be addressed. To obtain financial compensation for a car accident, you must prove that the driver who hit you was at fault. Under state law, any individual who is 50 percent or less at fault can sue the at-fault party for compensation. The at-fault party must then pay.

Determining fault can be difficult even when there are police reports to go by, so it is critical that you hire a lawyer who has experience with auto accident cases. At The Sexton Law Firm, we can review the facts of the case, work with you on your testimony, and paint a clear and compelling picture of who was at fault.

Speak With An Experienced MVA Lawyer Today

In Tennessee, there is a one-year statute of limitations for auto accident lawsuits. That does not give you much time to decide whether to pursue a lawsuit, especially since many auto injuries are not apparent in the immediate aftermath. Handling legal matters while you are trying to recover can be very emotionally difficult. At The Sexton Law Firm, we can negotiate with the insurance company, which may try to pressure you into accepting a settlement, as well as with the other side, helping you put the matter behind you so you can focus on your recovery.

Don't delay seeking justice after an auto accident. It's important to speak with a lawyer right away, as delays can cause doubt that your injuries were caused by the motor vehicle accident. Contact us online or call 865-297-5242 today to get started.

They handled my SSDI case and hearing. They answered my questions and were very professional throughout the entire time leading up to and including the hearing. Research said that 95% of first time filings for disability with the SSA are denied. I would encourage anyone filing for disability to contact The Law offices of David Sexton to get it done right, keep you informed and follow up to make sure everything is going well. As a veteran of 12 years service to our great country I can tell you that they don’t just give lip service to thanking us for Our Service, but you not not receive better and more timely service Anywhere.

They were quick to return the initial phone call and filed my paperwork for disability, however I had questions and information to give them and despite my phone calls to them every four to five weeks no one ever returned my call the first time. I did all of the leg work for my disability and for that I got to pay them $6,000. That was one expensive first phone call to them.

I'm sending a big thank you to David Sexton! Navigating my way through the stages of the SS disability process was not a task I was equipped to take on alone. After my initial filing and subsequent denial, I made the wise decision of contacting The Sexton Law Firm to get the necessary legal representation I undoubtedly needed. David Sexton believed in my case, and carried it, as he guided me through almost three years of the SSA's bureaucratic maze. Throughout the process, and three denials, David, as well as Stephanie, Pam, and Tara, displayed a high level of knowledge, professionalism, and patience as they never failed to answer all of my questions, and made sure I was fully prepared way ahead of time. They were always courteous and enthusiastic. David and his team won my case! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Sexton Law Firm to anyone who is considering applying for SSDI.

David Sexton and his entire staff were fabulous! I was treated with kindness, caring and integrity throughout my case. He got me through my appeal and without his help, I wouldn’t have won my case. Thank God he was there for me all the way! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I highly recommend!
