Accidents and injuries can change your life permanently.

It can be difficult to know what to do immediately after an accident causing injury but your next steps are important. They can influence the outcome of your personal injury claim.

Insurance companies are out to minimize their losses – in direct contrast to the outcome you want. So, it’s important to make the right decisions.

By seeking legal help from experienced personal injury attorneys at Houston & Alexander, PLLC in Chattanooga, you give yourself the best chance of recovering the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Looking for a personal injury lawyer in Chattanooga, TN?

If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, call our attorneys at (423) 267-6715 or request a free case evaluation today.

Why hire a personal injury lawyer?

After suffering an injury in an accident, your life can be seriously disrupted. Work, recreation, family, sporting activities, socializing – it can all be affected. Your ability to earn income may be reduced or non-existent and your quality of life may deteriorate.

So, once you have received the necessary emergency medical care and provided information to the police so that they can compile an accident report, it’s best to seek legal assistance. In these situations, an experienced hand to guide you through the legal steps to claim compensation can help you navigate difficult times.

It can be challenging to deal with aggressive loss adjusters at insurance companies and all the paperwork. The adjuster’s job is to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible and you should not consider settling quickly without taking legal advice.

The loss adjuster will probably try to call you but you are not obliged to provide any information. Any information you do provide will likely be used against you.

If you hire an attorney from Houston & Alexander, PLLC, all communications with the insurance company can be channeled through our offices. Our attorneys are accustomed to doing what’s necessary for clients to achieve their goals and are prepared for litigation if an agreeable settlement is not forthcoming.

By retaining a personal injury lawyer early on, you will protect your rights and reduce the stress of the situation for you and your family.

What can you claim for personal injury?

Many personal injury cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies generally try to save on unnecessary legal costs. They are also aware that court-adjudicated settlements may be higher than those agreed out of court.

The size of the payout from your personal injury claim will depend largely on the following factors:

  • The extent of your injury and the medical bills incurred
  • The physical and emotional losses you have suffered as a result of the injury
  • Whether your future earning capacity is affected
  • The skills and experience of your personal injury lawyer

In general, you will be able to claim some or all of the following from your accident:

  • Damages that compensate you for out-of-pocket expenses concerning your medical care and recovery
  • Cost of future care paid in advance for projected expenses required for your recovery

  • Economic losses incurred by having to miss time from work or failed/delayed career advancements
  • Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life

Once you start the claims process with us, our attorneys should be able to provide you with some ballpark figures of what you can expect, based on experience.

Get in touch with us at Houston & Alexander, PLLC at any time. Call (423) 267-6715 to get your drug charge questions answered or request a free case evaluation.

Strong advocacy with a personal touch

When you engage an attorney from Houston & Alexander. PLLC, you can be certain that we will protect your rights and fight for your best interests.

The details are key in personal injury cases. That’s why we are exhaustive in our approach from the outset. We will keep the communication channels open so that we obtain the information we need and keep you in the loop with progress on your case.

We understand that if you have been hit with extensive out-of-pocket expenses, you may need reimbursement as soon as possible. However, your long-term interests are generally best served by allowing us to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.

Your attorney will prepare a compelling personal injury claim or lawsuit that aims for the best possible outcome for your present and future needs.

Can you afford a lawyer?

Most people don’t want to hire lawyers unless absolutely necessary. We get that. They call us in troubled times.

At Houston & Alexander, PLLC, we want to be here for you when you need us. We will represent you on a contingency basis – we get paid (a pre-agreed percentage) only if we obtain compensation for you.

That way, you can afford to hire an experienced lawyer to help you.

Looking for help with a personal injury claim in Chattanooga?

Personal injury cases are rarely straightforward. When the subject of liability comes up and insurance companies are involved, matters tend to become complex.

During your free initial consultation, an attorney from Houston & Alexander, PLLC can review your case and discuss possible strategies for obtaining the compensation you deserve.

TESTIMONIALS

The moment finally came when I saw Jay walk down the stairs in the court room, he flashed me a thumbs up and I knew... I knew I won. If you need a lawyer do not hesitate to call Houston & Alexander. There is no one that will represent you better anywhere in Chattanooga. I wholeheartedly give them five stars. - Antonio
I had hired another law firm and they were getting nowhere with my case. I was charged with multiple offense DUIs and other charges. I was not sure where to turn and called Houston and Alexander. Johnny Houston went the EXTRA MILE for me! The other law firm had negotiated a sentence that may have made me lose my house, my kids...everything. Johnny was not only able to get my charges reduced but also the sentence net result was I was able to keep my family together. -Colleen
We've been clients of Houston & Alexander for three years, with Bret Alexander representing us during that time. I can't speak highly enough of his integrity, professionalism, and his dedication to our legal needs. We are so grateful for his guidance and effectiveness through such a difficult time. He's an attorney you can trust and depend on to do the right thing. We are sincerely so grateful. Thank You! - Trish
I am a Desert Storm veteran and found myself in need of legal counsel. Everyone from the receptionist to the attorney himself treated me with the utmost respect and dignity. I found them to be knowledgeable and most helpful. I would recommend Houston and Alexander for all your legal needs. Thank you for all of your help. - C Pugh
I won't go into specifics because they are very embarrassing for my family. But if you have a daughter who has been criminally charged with a serious charge, Johnny Houston should be your go-to gentleman. Because of his hard work, and diligence in our case, we can once again hold our heads High and consider this a lesson learned. Thank you Johnny Houston from the bottom of our hearts! -Karen A.
My son made a couple of mistakes and was faced with having a criminal record. Mr. Houston stepped in and provided us with excellent representation. My son will NOT have a record now and is looking forward to the future. I also can't say enough about the staff at Houston & Alexander. Always responsive and informative and really went the extra mile. I cannot recommend them enough! - Alice
Due the stress of this pandemic and the loss of employment, my wife and I got into an argument and I ended up getting arrested and charged with domestic violence. I could not go home, could not have any contact with my wife and had no place to live. An elected official/friend referred me to Johnny Houston and his law firm. Due to Johnny's efforts, not only did we get into court quickly, but all charges were dismissed. We are back together now and I am getting this expunged. Thank you, Johnny! - Client
I had too much to drink one night and backed into another car. I was charged with second offense DUI and felony reckless endangerment. I was at a real low point in my life and my husband had recently passed away. Johnny was able to get the felonies dismissed and I pled guilty to a first offense. Instead of facing significant jail time and a felony, I did a few days in jail and wore an alcohol monitor. Johnny was able to humanize me with the DA and I was able to get my life back on track again. Great law firm! You would be crazy to go anywhere else. - Karen M.
I am a college student. I was involved in a wreck and was charged with DUI and leaving the scene. I thought I was ok to drive but my blood result said otherwise. A DUI conviction would have really hurt my chances of getting a good job. Johnny and Bret told me I had a difficult case and the only guarantee they gave was that they would work hard for me. They NEVER gave up on my case and ultimately persuaded the arresting officer and the DA to reduce the charge. If YOU need help on a DUI or any other case, call them! These men are not only hard working but kind. - Kate

The other law firm had negotiated a sentence that may have made me lose my house, my kids...everything. Johnny was not only able to get my charges reduced but also the sentence. I kept my house and my family intact! I have turned my life around and things are great! Johnny did not forget about me once the case was over, either. I needed some additional help with my license and Johnny jumped right on it. - Colleen
Johnny and Bret took my case and treated me like a person, not a number. I was looking at a long prison sentence (10+ years). These guys stepped in, calmed me down, and told me that they were going to be there for me. When you first walk in their office, you have that at home feeling. With Mrs. Wanda, a very welcoming atmosphere. They really treat you like family here. I would recommend Mr. Houston and Mr. Alexander to anyone who needs their service. You will not go wrong with these guys. THEY KNOW THE LAW!!!! - WARDELL
We were from out of town and had no friends or family in the area. Things got out of control and the next morning we were arrested and charged with Felonies. In my opinion, we were over charged. We called Johny and he agreed to meet with us right away. Johnny was attentive and listened. Facing possible jail time and the loss of my husband,s job we were terrified. Johnny literally rescued us! He took the lead, met with the DA and the alleged victim, and really smoothed things over. Johnny was confident and appeared to get along well with the Prosecutors and Judges. We were very fortunate to find Johnny. - Tana
