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 Rhea County, Tennessee, you deserve fair compensation from the responsible party.
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 Rhea County injury attorney 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.
