There is no denying that the job of a law enforcement officer is dangerous. However, this does not excuse officers from endangering other drivers or pedestrians. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by police officers, it is wise to consult with a knowledgeable attorney.
The Tennessee police motor vehicle accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod and Baril, PLLC, have extensive experience representing clients who were hit by a police car. Typically, an auto crash of this nature can lead to significant injuries as well as property damage. It is our goal to ensure you recover the full and fair monetary compensation possible in your situation.

When driving, a police officer is nearly always multitasking. Whether he or she is communicating with dispatch, calling in a license plate or monitoring someone’s driving habits, his or her attention is often pulled away from the task at hand — driving safely. In the most extreme cases, an officer will be required to engage in a high-speed pursuit of a vehicle. In these situations, it is not uncommon for another, unrelated vehicle to be struck. We understand that the police are completing a dangerous and necessary job in society, but if you were injured, you have the right to seek compensation.
