- Motor vehicle accidents. Auto accidents are a top cause of personal injuries.

Negligent acts are often what cause auto accident injuries and—worse—fatalities. In 2009 alone, the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) recorded over 1,300 drivers involved in fatal traffic crashes in the state of Tennessee. Distraction or negligence of some sort contributes to up to 81 percent of all auto accidents.
- Medical malpractice. Injury or harm caused by the negligence of a medical professional can be devastating. We entrust doctors, nurses, and other health care providers with our well-being, so when they make negligent mistakes that have serious consequences, we feel personally betrayed. Physician negligence can lead to birth defects, infections, unnecessary surgeries, dangerous drug interactions, or even death. If you suspect that a medical professional has been negligent—in terms of a surgical error, a mistake in prescribing or administering a drug, a faulty diagnosis or lack thereof, or an oversight in patient monitoring—contact a Chattanooga injury attorney as soon as possible.
- Defective products. When consumer products cause injuries, accidents, or even illnesses, it is often due to negligence in meeting safety standards. A product that is poorly designed, improperly manufactured or assembled, or lacking in sufficient warnings can cause serious harm to the user.
- Premises liability. In any accident that involves unsafe property conditions, the property owner can be found negligent for failing to provide adequate maintenance or signage—and can be held responsible for any injuries that take place on the premises. Dog bite injuries also fall into this category.
