Chattanooga Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Lawyers Assisting Chattanooga Residents

After an accident, it is common for victims to receive a telephone call from an insurance company for the at-fault party. Although the insurance adjuster may seem friendly, in most cases, the purpose of the call is to obtain evidence that may undermine your case, such as an admission of fault by you. It is better to talk to your own attorney before talking to an insurance adjuster for the at-fault party. If you suffer injuries as a result of a car or truck accident, a slip and fall, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, or another incident, the experienced Chattanooga personal injury attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz may be able to help you recover damages. NST is the way to go. We have more than 30 attorneys and 100 staff members, making us the largest personal injury law firm based in Tennessee.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents may happen for many different reasons, but one common reason is truck driver negligence. Due to their weight and size, a careless error by a truck driver may have devastating consequences. To establish a truck driver’s negligence, you will need to prove that the truck driver failed to use reasonable care while operating the truck, and this failure caused your injuries. You may also have grounds to sue the trucking company on the basis of negligence, negligence per se, or vicarious liability, as well as the truck manufacturer on the basis of a product liability theory, depending on the facts of the case.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are sometimes the fault of multiple parties. Each defendant in a car accident lawsuit will be held liable for the portion of the damages for which fault has been attributed to them. Therefore, it is crucial to retain an attorney who knows not only how to prove fault but also how to develop a strong strategy for actually recovering the damages for an accident from the parties that have the means to pay it.

Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Nursing home abuse may sometimes go undetected in Tennessee. All nursing home residents have numerous rights, including the right to be free from abuse. If your loved one has been subject to abuse in any form, whether economic, financial, emotional, or physical, they may be able to recover damages through a nursing home abuse lawsuit.

Premises Liability

While property owners cannot always ensure your safety on their premises, certain circumstances may require a property owner to take steps to make the security on the premises adequate. For example, an apartment complex that has a history of assaults on or near the premises may foresee that future attacks are likely. The complex owner may need to take extra steps to make sure that the property has appropriate security for tenants and visitors to avoid foreseeable harm. If you were hurt on someone else’s property due to a third-party criminal attack, you may be able to bring an inadequate security lawsuit.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors and other healthcare providers that do not behave in accord with the accepted standards and practices of the local medical community and cause harm to patients as a result may be held liable in medical malpractice lawsuits. Usually, it is necessary to retain a credible expert to testify on the standards and practices in the specialty, the defendant’s failure to meet these standards, and causation.

Product Liability

There are generally three types of product defects that may give rise to a product liability lawsuit. These are marketing, manufacturing, and design defects. In certain instances, a victim may hold a manufacturer strictly liable for injuries caused by a defective product. This means that they will need to establish an actionable defect and causation. There may also be a basis to recover damages under theories of breach of warranty, negligence, misrepresentation, or concealment.
