When a serious injury changes your life, you may not know where to turn for help. Trying to navigate insurance claims and doctors’ visits can be difficult, and you may feel the pressure piling up. Fortunately, you do not have to go through this alone. An attorney can help.

If you are deciding on a lawyer, choose a law firm that best represents your interests. At Wagner & Wagner Attorneys at Law, we are not only concerned with the bottom line—we are dedicated to helping your family recover, heal and move on from your tragedy.

Our areas of practice

Since 1934, Wagner & Wagner has been helping the residents of Dunlap and the surrounding areas with their legal needs after being involved in serious accidents and incurring serious injuries. Our main areas of practice include:

  • Traffic accidents. Dunlap is full of winding, rural roads, which makes it a prime location for car accidents, as well as truck and motorcycle accidents. We help injured people who were harmed as the result of a careless driver, including pedestrian and bicycle accident victims.
  • Recreational and mass transit accidents. Whether you were riding the bus to work or taking the train, a serious collision on public transportation can have a devastating impact.In addition to serving clients injured in mass transit accidents, we represent those injured in boating accidents and recreational accidents.
  • Premises liability. If someone’s property was unsafe and you were harmed as a result, the property owner should be held accountable. Filing a premises liability claim helps ensure justice is served to the negligent owner.
  • Product liability. Defective products, from harmful medications to faulty auto parts, are seriously dangerous. Unsuspecting consumers could face severe injuries and develop illnesses if a product is poorly made, designed, or is not properly labeled. Our attorneys work hard to get you the medical attention you need.
  • Work-related accidents. Workers’ compensation allows those involved in job-related accidents to obtain medical benefits and compensation for lost wages. When an employer unjustly denies, delays or limits these payments, you need an experienced lawyer by your side.
  • Nursing home abuse. Within the assisted-living facility environment, our elderly loved ones are at the hands of supposedly trained caretakers. All too often, however, nursing home staff members abuse or neglect patients, giving rise to a personal injury claim against the negligent parties.
  • Serious injuries. A life-changing injury adds an immense amount of stress, frustration and fear to you and your family’s lives. Our firm helps clients recover adequate compensation after a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and more. When a loved one dies as the result of negligence, we can assist with a wrongful death claim.

Additionally, our attorneys help clients draft and execute wills, as well as contest and litigate wills when necessary. Our business law team represents clients in a wide variety of matters, from forming LLCs and corporations to contract disputes. Finally, Wagner & Wagner represents clients who are filing for bankruptcy.

Helping Dunlap workers after a serious on-the-job injury

Tennessee’s workers’ compensation law allows those involved in job-related accidents to obtain medical benefits and compensation for lost wages – without the need to show your employer was negligent or failed to comply with any federal or state regulations. When a Tennessee employer unjustly denies, delays, or limits these payments, you need an experienced lawyer by your side.

Dunlap employees who suffer workplace injuries or occupational illnesses have the right to have their employer’s insurance company pay for the employee’s medical bills including ER care, hospitalizations, and rehabilitative care. Employees who cannot work have the right to claim temporary disability wage loss benefits until their health status is clear. We also fight to obtain permanent disability benefits for employees who have permanent serious injuries. Finally, we seek death benefits if a loved one, such as a parent, died while doing his/her job.
