Fannin County, GA Personal Injury Lawyer

Located in Chattanooga, Dennis & King has won millions of dollars for injured people across Tennessee and Georgia. We believe that every client deserves honest, compassionate legal counsel tailored to their unique needs. If you have recently suffered an injury in Fannin County, GA you deserve fair compensation from the responsible party. When you work with a Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer at Dennis and King we will help you get just that.

In almost all personal injury claims, insurance companies will offer you significantly less than what you deserve. It’s tempting to accept the first offer, especially if you are in a great deal of pain and unable to return to work. But if you’ve already taken a devalued settlement from the insurance company and your medical bills start to pile up, there’s little legal recourse to ask for more. That’s why it’s crucial to involve a Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer before you even file a claim.

With over 75 years of combined experience, the team at Dennis and King will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, working tirelessly to secure a more substantial settlement than likely without skilled legal representation. If the adjuster doesn’t offer fair compensation, we can bring a lawsuit against the company. In other words, we will do the legwork so that you can focus on healing.

Case Illustration of Injury Claim in Fannin County, Georgia

Fannin County is located in the north central portion of Georgia. The county seat of Fannin County is Blue Ridge, a mountain town. Although small, Blue Ridge is a thriving artist’s community with craft breweries dotting the downtown area and antique trains taking passengers to nearby mountain villages on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Blue Ridge is also considered an elite health resort area, thanks to the pure mineral waters.

Julie Graves was headed to one of these Blue Ridge resorts, known as Serenity in the Mountains, for a relaxing weekend with one of her friends when she met a car driving the wrong way on Highway 74. While Julie did her best to avoid the oncoming collision, the front of Julie’s vehicle was clipped, causing her car to spin off of the highway and flip over. While Julie’s friend suffered only minor cuts and bruises, Julie’s seat belt—while probably saving her life—caused internal injuries.

Unable to return to work for an extended period, Julie called several friends and relatives to ask about a referral to a law firm. With several recommendations for Dennis and King Law, Julie decided to make a phone call. After her initial consultation, Julie felt immediately relieved. The unparalleled experience and knowledge of the team at Dennis and King Law reassured Julie that she could take the time needed to heal from her injuries, while also protecting her future.

Fannin County, GA Personal Injury Practice Areas

Accidents usually happen in the blink of any eye, but their consequences can span months, years, or even a lifetime. You shouldn’t have to pay for another’s negligence or bad judgment.

Our Fannin County personal injury attorneys handle all types of personal injury cases, but the most common include:

  • Car accidents – According to the Independent Herald, in 2023, Tennessee was one of the most dangerous states in America for traffic accidents. With 18 deaths per 100,000 people, Tennessee tied with Louisiana as the seventh-deadliest state in regards to traffic accidents. To put this into perspective, a person is three times more likely to die in a traffic accident in Tennessee than in New York or Massachusetts, with just five traffic deaths per 100,000 people.
  • Motorcycle Accidents – According to tn.gov, motorcycle accidents in Tennessee are the fourth most likely type of auto accident to result in a fatality.
  • Truck Accidents are becoming more and more common. Like all drivers, truck drivers can be driving while distracted, overly fatigued, or impaired. Trucking companies have a duty to vet their drivers properly and ensure that they are adequately trained. Failure to do so can also lead to trucking accidents.
  • Boating Accidents usually take place when the boat driver is inexperienced, distracted, or impaired. Most boating accidents can be avoided, but if you have been injured due to another boater’s negligence, you may have a valid personal injury claim.
  • Premises Liability claims arise when there is a known hazard on a person’s property and there is no warning sign to let the public know of the hazard. Every owner is responsible for keeping his or her property free from dangers, and if they do not, then they are liable for any resulting injuries.
  • Slip and Fall Injuries often occur in grocery stores or other public places after a spill, or when people have tracked in ice and snow. If these slick areas are not cleaned promptly, a person could suffer a serious injury after slipping and falling.
  • Brain Injuries can occur during sports and recreational activities, car accidents, or workplace accidents, among other places. A severe brain injury can alter the victim’s life for years—or even for the rest of their life. For this reason, it is important for victims and their families to speak with a knowledgeable Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer who can help them seek a full settlement for their injuries.
  • Bicycle Accidents occur in cities and on rural roads as well. These accidents are primarily caused by drivers who fail to respect the bicyclist’s right to share the road. Automobile drivers may cause serious accidents by driving too closely to the bicyclist or by opening a car door out into the bicyclist’s path.
  • Nursing Home Abuse is often the result of staffing issues or poor vetting of employees. Nonetheless, there is no excuse for abusing an elderly person. When you place your loved one in a nursing home, you expect that they will be safe and well cared for. When that turns out not to be the case, it can be extremely distressing to your elderly loved one as well as to your entire family. An experienced Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer from Dennis & King can help you take the necessary steps after learning of a case of nursing home abuse.
  • Burn Injuries can be disfiguring, resulting in emotional suffering and trauma along with debilitating physical pain. Burn injuries sometimes result from auto accidents and other times are the result of a hazard in the workplace. Whatever the cause, if your burn injuries occurred as the result of someone else’s negligence, you can seek damages from the at-fault party’s insurer.
  • Wrongful Death claims can be difficult, as you are still mourning the loss of your loved one as you struggle to pay for medical and funeral expenses as you keep your family afloat financially. When you have a strong Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer from Dennis and King Law by your side, you can be certain that you will receive the settlement your family is entitled to while also taking the time you need to grieve your loss.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage is usually optional for most policyholders. However, this coverage can be very beneficial to you in the event that you are ever hit by a negligent driver who does not have auto insurance. While you could try to sue the at-fault driver, if he or she cannot afford auto insurance, then it is unlikely that you could recover damages in a lawsuit.

Motor vehicle and car wreck accidents are among the most common causes of accidental injury, and neck and back injuries are frequent in these accidents. Injuries to the neck and back often require more time to heal, which means more medical treatment, more pain and suffering, and more time out of work. In these cases, it’s always in your best interest to hire a Fannin County personal injury attorney without delay.

Is My Fannin County, GA Accident Claim Valid?

There is only one sure way to determine whether your accident claim is valid, and that involves speaking to an experienced Fannin County, GA personal injury lawyer from Dennis and King Law. Once you have spoken to a knowledgeable attorney, he or she will first determine whether liability is clear in your case. There must be a liable party whose insurance company will take responsibility for your damages resulting from the accident.

If the other party is liable, then the strength of your claim will hinge on how extensive your injuries are and whether your injuries have prevented you from working and making a living. Your attorney will also work with you to ensure that you don’t make common mistakes following your accident—including posting photos and information about your accident on social media or giving a recorded statement to the at-fault party’s insurer. The Dennis and King legal team will be by your side every step of the way and will advocate strongly on your behalf for the best outcome possible.

This has a downside as frequent truck accidents occur on I-75, I-24, I-59, Highway 153, U.S. 27, Amnicola Highway, Corridor J, and other roadways.

ATV Accidents

Under both Tennessee and Georgia law, ATVs are not authorized for use on paved road, but children continue to bring ATVs on to our roads and highways. Georgia and Tennessee laws also prohibit the carrying of passengers on most ATVs, require children below the age of 16 to take approved ATV training courses, and require kids younger than 16 to wear helmets, eye protection, and over-the-ankle boots when operating ATVs. However, these requirements apply only when ATVs are operated on public lands, leaving kids essentially without protection when riding ATVs on private property.

About ATV Accidents >

Bicycle Accidents

The most tragic type of bicycle crash is a bike-car collision. Cyclists are completely defenseless traveling on 30-pound bikes when they’re surrounded by 3,000-pound cars and trucks racing by them. Pedestrians, defective bike parts, recalled bike helmets, and other ineffective bicycle safety equipment can also cause bicycle accidents. Bike accidents can result in wrongful death or serious injuries such as broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.

About Bicycle Accidents >

Boating Accidents

One of three factors usually cause boat accidents: an inexperienced boater, an intoxicated operator, or a boat malfunction. More than a third of both fatal and non-fatal boat accidents are alcohol-related. It is estimated that boat operators with a blood alcohol content of .10 or higher are 10 times more likely to be injured or killed in a boat accident than sober operators.
