Personal Attention for Every Client
Through our decades of experience, we’ve seen the worst when it comes to personal injury law.
We know how devastating it can be to trust an attorney, only to find they won’t answer your phone calls. In contrast, our team has built a stellar reputation by being fully committed to our clients every step of the way.
Our clients never have to worry about reaching us when you need us. We communicate with you and your loved ones through the entirety of your case, so you never feel in the dark. And perhaps most importantly, you’ll know you have a team on your side.
We also want you to feel informed and encouraged. That’s why we’ve published a library of free reports about personal injury to help you understand your case better.
In addition, we know how to be flexible with your specific health needs. For example, if you can’t travel because of your injuries, we can come to you.
We know your case is extremely personal to you, and the results matter a great deal to you and your family. They matter to us, too. And you’ll never doubt it when you see how hard we fight for you.
A Team of Investigators on Your Side
With any personal injury case, it’s critical you have a firm that will investigate your claim and build evidence to strengthen your case.
That said, sometimes the bigger firms don’t put a lot of attention toward this part of the work. Especially if you have a smaller case in their eyes, they may not give it the time and attention it deserves.
However, the smaller firms don’t always have the resources to do this type of investigation.
That’s why in general, you’ll get the best results from a medium sized firm that has the resources to build your case but isn’t so big they ignore you.
Our team will do a full investigation of your case, depending on exactly what you need, including:
- talk to medical experts
- dig up documents
- find new evidence
- do site visits
- and more
Some cases need more of this investigation than others, but one thing is clear: we do the work, whatever it takes.
What to Expect During Your Personal Injury Case
No attorney should ever make guarantees, but we strive every day to get our clients the highest compensation possible to help you recover from your injuries.
We do this in a few different ways.
First, as we mentioned above, we put a lot of time and effort into investigating your case and building your claim. We don’t take shortcuts, because it could affect how much you receive in benefits down the line.
Next, we discuss your case with the opposing side and work to get you an acceptable settlement. We look at all the details of your case, what you’re hoping to get for your injuries, and all the evidence we have about your losses. Every single case is different, so we build our strategy with your input and all the evidence we’ve found.
During this negotiation process, we keep you updated so nothing surprises you. We make sure you are willing to accept the settlement before you agree to anything. And we help you understand the numbers and how each side came to their offers.
We pride ourselves on getting great settlements for our clients; but if a settlement can’t be reached, we go to trial. At this stage we build a court case on your behalf. We represent you in court, and we guide you through the process step-by-step.

Memphis Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions
At Darrell Castle & Associates, we understand the rules around personal injury cases can be overwhelming – especially when you’re dealing with physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Our dedicated team of personal injury attorneys is here to help guide you through this process.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, you may have a valid personal injury claim.
This means someone else’s behavior (or lack of preventative action) caused you harm. Examples might include car accidents, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice, or defective products.
As you question whether you might have a personal injury claim, the best thing you can do is speak with a qualified attorney. A good personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether or not you have a case.
Our team would be happy to discuss your situation and give you an idea of what to expect.
What Compensation Can I Expect From A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Clients often ask us exactly how much they can expect from their personal injury claim. We usually have to give that frustrating lawyer answer: it depends.
Your compensation will vary based on several factors, including:
- the severity of your injuries
- cost of medical expenses
- whether you lost wages (and how much)
- and much more.
It will also depend on your attorney’s negotiating skills and the willingness of the other side to work with your team. Sometimes people receive more at trial than in a settlement, and sometimes far less. So it’s impossible to say for certain how your individual case will go.
That said, our team works diligently to ensure our clients receive the maximum compensation possible. The final amount helps you cover medical bills, lost income, and damages for emotional distress. And we don’t make anything ourselves unless and until we win your case.
How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims varies from state to state and can be confusing.
In our home state of Tennessee, the statute of limitations is generally one year from the date of the injury. This typically means one year from the date the victim knew (or should have known) they were injured.
It takes time to put a claim together, and it’s incredibly frustrating and sad when potential clients reach out too late. So contact us immediately to discuss your situation so you don’t miss out on your opportunity to get justice.
How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take?
Your case timeline can vary widely. It will depend on a few things, including:
- the complexity of the case
- extent of your injuries, and
- the willingness of the opposing party to negotiate.
In some instances, a straightforward settlement could take a matter of months. And in other cases, it may take far longer.
Our experienced Memphis personal injury lawyer will work diligently to keep the process moving while making sure your case receives the attention and effort it deserves.
You can rest assured we’ll keep you informed at every stage, so you aren’t waiting around in the dark. And we’ll make you aware as changes happen, so you’ll know as best as possible what to expect.
Should I Accept The Insurance Company’s Initial Settlement Offer?
We try to remind all our clients that the other side’s insurance company isn’t looking out for you. Their goal is to get you to accept the smallest amount possible, so their offer may not even cover your full expenses.
In fact, to protect your rights, we recommend you not say a word to the insurance company. Instead, immediately consult with an attorney for your own benefit.
Our award-winning team represents you in front of the insurance companies, so they can’t get under your skin or catch you saying something inaccurate.
In addition, we fully investigate your losses, including future expenses, so the opposing party has a clear idea of how much they owe you. This helps you get the maximum compensation you need and deserve.
