Awarded: $50,000Single Parent Gets Settlement after Nashville Car Accident
M. is a single parent. He has a disabled son he is crazy about. He’s doing nothing wrong when involved in a car wreck. He injures his shoulder, misses some work, and has to have some physical therapy. After hiring attorney Phillip Miller, the case is settled for the policy limits of $50,000 and M’s life gets back to normal.
Awarded: “Confidential”Money isn’t enough if you are still hurting.
When I came to Mr. Miller, I wasn’t thinking about money. I wanted to get better. I wanted my bills to be paid for sure, but more than anything else I wanted to be normal again. Mr. Miller has been down this road before. He told me more about my injury than my doctor did, and after talking with him I felt like I knew what to expect. It took some time, but Mr. Miller helped me know what to expect, and he was right on the money. LOL. Most of all, he told me it was important to get the treatment I needed and he emphasized the importance of following my doctor’s directions.
Mr. Miller didn’t rush me, he knew about how long it would take me to get back. Eventually I felt like I was back to normal again. I didn’t get a million dollars, but I didn’t want that or expect that. Mr. Miller made sure my bills were paid, and that I had something for the aggravations that came with the accident. Was it enough? It was more than the insurance company really wanted to pay, and that’s something.

She was back at work within 4 months despite having had more than a dozen procedures.
Tennessee Motorcycle Accidents
Bryan was enjoying a beautiful Sunday ride through Nashville on his Harley. He was doing everything right. He was under the speed limit, wearing a helmet, and his bike was in top operating condition. Out of nowhere another driver decided to turn left in front of him. There is no time to brake or take any evasive manuever. Bryan goes over the handlebars as his bike hits the car. He has multiple fractures, but the worse fractures are to one of his legs. He is off work for several months, but his therapy gets him back on his feet and back to work eventually. Attorney Phillip Miller was able to settle Bryan’s case for enough money to take care of the medical bills and provide a nest egg for Bryan should his injuries have some future effect on his income.
Older Motorcyclist Gets Settlement from Tennessee Motorcycle Wreck Despite Insurance Company
George is retired, and older. He has some health issues that come from being older and working hard all his life. The one thing that he loves more than anything (other than his family) is being able to ride. It’s part of his life and who he is. Being involved in a motorcycle accident was not something he expected after riding injury free for more than 40 years. Still, it’s a know fact that many drivers don’t look for and don’t see motorcycles, and it happened to George. His insurance company wanted to blame all his problems on his prior medical conditions, and it was fair to say he already had some problems getting around. The insurance company wanted to stiff George. He hires Phillip Miller & Associates to deal with them, and it makes a difference. George was able to get his bills paid, his bike repaired, and put a little in the bank.
