Causes Of Injury

Negligence Is At The Heart Of Personal Injury Cases

Anyone who is found to be negligent or reckless can be held legally accountable for causing harm to another individual. In fact, negligence is the determining factor in all injury cases — which is why an injury lawyer in Chattanooga is vital for your case.

If you or a loved one was hurt in any of the following types of accidents or incidents — and you believe that negligence was the cause — an attorney from McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, can help you secure compensation for medical costs, lost wages, property damage and even emotional damages.

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Auto accidents are a top cause of personal injuries. Whether an injury results in bumps or bruises or causes permanent paralysis or brain damage, our attorneys can help you seek the damages to which you are entitled. Negligent acts are often what cause auto accident injuries and — worse — fatalities.
  • 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 and 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 McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, 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.
