Straddling the Tennessee River and bordering Georgia at the junction of three interstate highways, including the heavily travelled I-75 corridor, Chattanooga, Tennessee is both a historic railroad town and a modern transportation hub and tourist center. As a result, the lawyers of The Hamilton Firm focus much of their work on representation of persons injured in transportation related cases.
Chattanooga is the headquarters for two of the nation’s major trucking companies, U.S. Xpress and Covenant Transport. Tractor trailers, while essential to a thriving economy, also present great risks to the travelling public if not operated safely by well trained professional drivers with well maintained equipment. Chattanooga is also a rail hub for Norfolk Southern and CSX. Travel, transport and commerce by water, rail and road in Chattanooga and the surrounding tri-state region are essential to our lives and economy, but all the economic activity also brings traffic and congestion, and, all too often, increases the incidence of accidents and injuries on the highways and in the workplace.
Our mission is to provide high quality, effective legal representation to transportation related accident victims in cases involving serious injury or wrongful death, such as trucking or truck accidents, automobile accidents, and FELA or railroad accidents, as well as construction site accidents and industrial accidents, and Georgia workers’ compensation claims, Tennessee workers’ compensation claims, Social Security Disability and Long Term Disability claims. Our law firm emphasizes personal attention and service to our clients and their families. Our lawyers have years of trial experience with multi millions of dollars in actual settlements and judgments obtained for clients and their families who have been hurt in trucking accidents, construction accidents, automobile wrecks, workplace accidents, industrial accidents, as well as premises cases. We have attorneys licensed to practice in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama, and we handle serious cases throughout the Southeast region as well as nationally.
Truck wrecks, or other accidents involving large commercial vehicles, are particularly challenging and require a high level of experience, commitment and expertise. Likewise, serious injuries or deaths due to explosions, collapsing scaffolds or walls, equipment malfunctions, falling objects, boilers, falls, electrocution, and so forth, at construction sites, factories or industrial plants require experienced and committed counsel to deal with the complex legal and factual issues that arise. Severe cases involving paralysis, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, or other catastrophic injuries demand a high level of commitment and expertise. All possible sources of recovery must be considered and investigated. Our firm also has years of experience with Georgia workers compensation cases and with Tennessee workers compensation cases. Our attorneys have secured hundreds and hundreds of workers compensation settlements for our clients, as well as pursuing third party claims against those at fault for work place accidents in appropriate cases.
Whether you need a trial attorney for a catastrophic or serious injury case, a wrongful death case, or a Social Security disability attorney, or if you’ve been hurt on the job and need a workers compensation lawyer in Georgia or Tennessee, the Hamilton Firm has the experience and expertise to handle your case, and the dedication, resources and commitment to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
