Hi - sorry for the delay.


You need to hire an attorney licensed in Tennessee to handle the case. That can be an attorney from Memphis to Chattanooga. It's cheapest to find a local attorney to handle the claim to cut down on travel time, etc.


Generally, a personal injury attorney would be the appropriate person to handle this kind of case.
