Personal Injury lawyer in Tennessee

An injury today might cause you more problems tomorrow including lost wages, medical bills, and other unexpected expenses. The laws in Tennessee allow you, the injured person, to hold who or what injured you responsible. You should hire an attorney for serious injuries. It is incredibly unlikely you will be fairly compensated without legal representation. Lawyers can help you with the complex process in resolving disputes in the legal system.

Examples of personal injury cases are:

  • Car and truck accidents
  • Product liability cases
  • Slip/trip and fall
  • Vehicle equipment failures
  • Work-related accidents

The State of Tennessee does set time limits on how long you have to file your lawsuit following an injury. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible following an injury you think might have been caused by someone else’s negligence.

  • Divorce
  • Emancipation
  • Marital property

Estate Planning

Estate planning involves creating a plan that provides certainty for you and your loved ones. Because such plans differ widely, it is important to work with an experienced estate planning attorney to customize a plan that fits your needs.

Some of decisions estate planning make are as follows:

  • Deciding who will make decisions for you if you become ill or unable to make decisions
  • Deciding who will care for your children and/or pets in the event of your death
  • Deciding who will carry-out the details of your estate plan
  • Deciding who will get the property and money you leave behind

Some of the goals of estate planning are:

  • Anticipating long-term care needs
  • Reducing the effect of estate taxes
  • Reducing or eliminating your heirs from going through the probate process
  • Establishing rules for your heir’s access to your money and property
  • Planning for the future of your business(es)

We at Callahan & Binkley, LPC, listen to your estate planning dreams and act to make them come true. For a free consultation for residents of cities such as Cookeville, Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville, please call (931) 322-5055.

Contract Disputes

A contract dispute occurs when a party to the contract either fails to perform his or her duties under the contract or disagrees with another party to the contract regarding the meaning of the terms and conditions of the document.

Examples of common contract disputes:

  • Commercial leases
  • Real Estate Contracts
  • Construction Contracts
  • Insurance Coverage Disputes
  • Consumer contract disputes (product warranties)
  • General material breach (refusal to follow set terms with the contract)
  • Non-compete agreements

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice happens when health care providers cause an injury by failing to provide reasonable care under the circumstances. This can include failures to follow guidelines, protocols, policies, or procedures that have been established to prevent the injury.

Examples of common medical malpractice are:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Childbirth injuries
  • Hospital infections
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors

In Tennessee, medical malpractice cases are called “Health Care Liability Actions” and are governed by a complex statutory scheme. For example, these laws require an injured party to provide potential defendants with letters placing them on notice before filing suit. There are several technical requirements these letters must meet in order to maintain a Health Care Liability Action. Like other personal injury claims, there is a statute of limitations, or time limit, for filing a Health Care Liability Action. For this reason, you should contact an attorney as soon as you suspect a health care provider might have caused an injury to you or a family member. You should make sure to find an attorney who specializes in these cases and there are very few, if any, attorneys in Tennessee who handle as many Health Care Liability Actions than Shea Callahan.
