Boating Accidents

Tennessee is a state known for its abundance of lakes and rivers, and boating is a longstanding favorite hobby of many Tennesseans. Unfortunately, boating accidents are an all-too-common occurrence that often results in property damage, serious injuries, and death. According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (“TWRA”) 2016 Tennessee Boating

Traumatic Brain Injury

The brain is undoubtedly the most complex organ in the human body, so much so that modern medical science still cannot fully explain how the brain works. Accordingly, when an individual suffers a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”), there are often serious and life-changing conditions that can require extensive surgery and medical treatment and can lead to significant, permanent impairments, such as loss of memory, speech, motor function and even death. Because of the seriousness and significance, and often permanence, of traumatic brain injuries, victims are often able make significant recoveries in subsequent civil suits.

Motorcycle Accidents

Tennessee and Kentucky motorcycle accidents cause catastrophic personal injuries and even death when motorcycle riders are struck by other negligent drivers. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident by such a negligent, careless, or inattentive driver, the trial lawyers of Batson, Nolan want to help you recover the full amount of the damages you have suffered and deserve to be paid.

Domestic Assault

It is important to understand that a charge of Domestic Assault does not simply mean that a person harmed their spouse or child. Instead, the charge can be far reaching, such as two current roommates becoming physically upset over rent or living conditions, or a heated conversation with a former in-law that turns physical. Such ease for the relationship requirements to be met indicates that Domestic Assault is anything but a simple charge to be understood at face value.

Dog Bites

Dog bites pose a frequent and serious health concern in today’s society and are the basis for a significant number of civil suits every year. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Center for Disease Control, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, half of which are usually children, and 800,000 of which are serious enough to require medical attention. In 2017 dog bites accounted for one-third of all homeowners’ liability insurance claims, costing in excess of $700 million with an average payout in excess of $35,000.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse has and continues to be a growing problem in the United States, due in large part to the Baby Boomer generation and the ever increasing percentage of the population that they make up. The 2010 census report found that roughly 13 percent of the population was older than 65 years old, a figure that is expected to rise as high as 20 percent by the year 2050.
