An injury on the job can have devastating impact on all aspects of a person’s life. Workers’ compensation laws are designed to provide medical care for the injury, and to provide some financial compensation to offset loss of earnings and resulting disability, regardless of who was at fault.  Employers and insurance companies do not always provide the benefits they are supposed to, however, and getting good legal advice is essential.

Tired of dealing with adjusters who don’t return phone calls or who refuse to authorize treatment or tests your doctor has ordered? Tired of all the delay and denial?


Each state has its own workers’ compensation laws, and benefits are different in each state. We accept representation in serious cases arising in states other than Georgia or Tennessee, and will associate local counsel licensed in the state where the claim arose, as needed. Call or e-mail with questions about workers’ compensation claims arising in states other than Georgia or Tennessee.

Bisected by the Tennessee River, bordering Georgia and Alabama, at the junction of three interstate highways, including the heavily traveled I-75 corridor, Chattanooga, Tennessee is both a historic railroad town and a modern transportation hub.  I-24 begins in Chattanooga running northwest toward Nashville, TN.  I-59 also begins just outside Chattanooga and runs south toward Birmingham, AL.  To the south, toward Atlanta along I-75, lies Dalton, GA a world center for the carpet and flooring industry. Chattanooga’s diversified economy includes the Volkswagen North American assembly plant, as well as insurance giants Blue Cross Blue Shield and Unum.  Chattanooga is also a major tourist destination attracting millions of visitors each year.  As a result, The Hamilton Firm LLC focus much of its work on representation of persons injured in trucking and transportation related cases as well as serious workplace injury cases.

Chattanooga is the headquarters for two of the nation’s major trucking companies, U.S. Xpress and Covenant Transport. And as crossroads city, Chattanooga ranks first in the nation among all metropolitan cities for the volume of freight moving through the city by truck (according to a recent freight study by Cambridge Systematics and reported in the Chattanooga Times Free Press). Problem areas include the interchanges as well as the entire section of I-24 from I-59 to I-75, and I-75 north to Cleveland, TN. Tractor trailers, while essential to a thriving economy, also present great risks to the traveling public if not operated safely by well trained professional drivers with well maintained equipment.

Chattanooga is also a rail hub for Norfolk Southern and CSX railroads.  Travel, transport and commerce by water, rail and road are essential to our lives and economy, but all the economic activity also brings traffic and congestion, which can lead to more wrecks, accidents and injuries.  This can be a volatile mix when combined with the high freight volume on tractor trailers traveling through or originating in the area.
