WHAT WE DO

Wrongful Death Attorneys Chattanooga

Has a loved one suffered a wrongful death due to another person’s negligence?

  • Do not rely on insurance companies.
  • You are our top priority.
  • Stay away from a settlement mill.

We understand the hardship and loss that a person suffers after losing someone they love to a wrongful death. Accident victims and families in the East Tennessee and North Georgia rely on the experienced wrongful death attorneys at Dennis and King to help them with aftermath of difficult situations.

Personal Injury Overview

The law defines a wrongful death as “the death of a person caused by the conduct or negligence of another.” Georgia and Tennessee law not only base the claim on damages to the decedent, but base it upon the damage the loved one’s death causes the surviving spouse, family members or even parents. Georgia and Tennessee law allows the claimant to recover expenses in the absence of the decedent. This includes loss of salary, health benefits, pain and suffering and other factors that place burdens on the surviving family members or distributes/beneficiaries.

Wrongful deaths may occur as the result of many types of accidents such as a car crash, construction site accident, semi-truck collision, train accident, bicycle accident, boating accident, slip, trip and fall, a defective product, or medical malpractice.

Survivors/beneficiaries may be eligible for compensation for the following types of damages:

  • Sorrow, mental anguish, and loss of solace which includes loss of society, companionship, comfort and guidance
  • Any reasonably expected loss in income of the decedent suffered by the survivors/beneficiaries
  • Any reasonably expected loss of services, protection, care, and/or assistance which the decedent provided to the survivors/beneficiaries
  • Expenses for the care, treatment and hospitalization of the decedent incident to the injury resulting in death
  • Reasonable funeral expenses

Do Not Rely On Insurance Companies

Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney. Many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments to persons involved in an accident. Insurance adjusters will contact you or your family shortly after an accident to try to gain your confidence. In doing so, insurance adjusters often try to present themselves as the friend of the injured person or the family of the person who was killed in an accident. The goal of such contact is to settle the case on terms as favorable as possible for the insurance company.
