We Fight for Justice in Injury Claim

If you have been the victim of a personal injury sustained due to the negligence of another then our firm will be able to help you file a lawsuit against the negligent individual. In order to have a personal injury lawsuit, you must be able to prove that the other individual acted negligently and that their negligence caused your injuries.

In order to prove negligence on the part of the other individual, you must establish two elements:

  • The other person owed you a duty of care, as in the case of you crossing the street where you have the right-of-way.
  • They violated this duty of care, by attempting to go through the intersection for example.

An accomplished Hamblen County injury attorney from our firm will be able to aggressively fight to see that these elements are established and proven so that we may maximize your chances of a favorable outcome of your case in court. It is highly important that you contact our firm as soon as possible in order to begin the process of building a strong defense of your case.
