Tennessee is a great place to live and a wonderful state to visit. The Volunteer State has wide-ranging amenities that appeal to music lovers, sports fans, history buffs, nature lovers, and families looking for wholesome adventure.
Sadly, Tennessee is not immune to the kinds of problems that plague the tourist industry worldwide. Every year, far too many Americans have their outings and vacations ruined by the negligent acts or criminal behavior of individuals connected to the hospitality or resort industries.
A tort is an injury to person or property resulting from another person’s negligence or deliberate act. The personal injury and products liability attorneys at Berke, Berke & Berke apply their knowledge and experience in those areas to incidents occurring at vacation spots in Hamilton County, Marion County, and throughout the state.
If your home state attorney is not admitted to practice in Tennessee, you might worry about finding competent local counsel and getting fair treatment in our state court.
At Berke, Berke & Berke, our Chattanooga personal injury attorneys work collegially with out-of-state lawyers to facilitate all matters related to your resort tort claim. We are skilled negotiators and aggressive trial attorneys who know what is required to maximize your recovery. When our Tennessee lawyers appear in Tennessee State Court, an out-of-state plaintiff has every possible advantage.
Tennessee residents returning from a disastrous vacation in another state should consult an attorney to discuss their rights in the matter. If the company that has wronged you has a substantial presence in Tennessee, it may be possible to sue in Tennessee State Court. If that is not feasible, attorneys at Berke, Berke & Berke can partner with litigators in the state where your injury occurred to ensure that you receive the highest level of representation possible.
To discuss your claim against a company in the hospitality or resort industry, call Berke, Berke & Berke or contact our Chattanooga office online. We take all injury cases on a contingency basis, which means you pay nothing until we recover a monetary award through trial verdict or settlement.
