Chattanooga Personal Injury Lawyers
Striving to Hold Negligent People & Companies Accountable
Accidents happen all the time but, in most cases, personal injury cases come from the negligence of another individual or entity. Negligence occurs when someone else—whether it’s an individual person, a business, a manufacturer, or some other entity—either fails to do something a reasonable person would have done in that situation or does something that a reasonable person would not have done in the same situation.
There are two circumstances in which your odds of winning your personal injury case look better:
- The property owner or their employee knew of the dangerous condition or uneven walking surface, but this has to be a reasonable and easily identifiable hazard. There is also the matter of whether the defendant could have fixed the hazard beforehand.
- The property owner or their employee actually caused the hazardous condition and it could have reasonably been seen as a dangerous condition where someone might slip and fall.
It all comes down to liability. If you can prove the owner or their employees should have recognized the hazard, and you were completely at no fault for the accident, you may have a fighting chance. Because most businesses take great care to avoid these types of claims and lawsuits, though, it is unlikely you’ll win a slip and fall case.

Now, STAFF, I know that you guys don't get recognized enough. I know that yall are the one's that do the calls, the set ups, and catch the crapstorm if it doesn't go well. Everyone there gives a feeling of humbled confidence, never arrogant. THANK YOU!- Frank J.
By far Mr Speek is the best attorney in Chattanooga. I highly recommend his expertise to anyone . Mr Speek is a very prestigious gentleman and really cares about his clients. Anytime I had a question his amazing staff was very prompt in getting an answer. Very sweet , polite and knowledgeable girls that work in the office as well. Walking in to hire a lawyer for me was very humiliating and uncomfortable. As soon as I walked in the office I felt very welcome and at ease. Mr Speek is very loyal to his clients and you can tell that he sincerely cares. Also a very known respected attorney . I can’t thank Mr Speek enough for all his help . I would highly recommend Mr Speek to anyone seeking an attorney.- Laura P.
Bill speek is committed to his job. Not only did surpass my needs and expectations, but he throughly explained everything I needed to know in a timely manner. He was a huge help and I strongly recommend his services.- Jake S.
Bill Speek. An angel sent from above. Truly a miracle worker. If I could give 20 stars, I would. Tell me how this man dropped 9 felony charges in just 5 minutes?!! Seriously can’t wrap my head around it. Don’t waste your time even looking for another lawyer.- Anika E.
I want to give a ten stars but google has 1-5 stars. Jonathan Turner was my lawyer and my case and it's over and my dui (2nd) got totally dismissed. We went to court many times and it always got pushed forward to another day. We dealt with blood test result and inconsistent and retesting. Covid was also a big factor in my case being extended for months and months. Different DA"s, not a good deal on the table and other factors included in my case. In the end,,, absolutely a ten on the stars rating from me. Dismissed..... I recommend Jonathan and his group highly. Thank you Jonathan so very much!!! Thank you again!!!- Dale J.
They are always willing to go the extra mile for every one of their clients.- Madeline Y.
Trust me, if you need a drug lawyer, he is the best. I don't know what I would have done without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.- Eric K.
