Civil litigation – In a nutshell, civil litigation is a term that generally describes any non-criminal legal dispute between two or more parties. Civil litigation includes personal injury claims, contract disputes, consumer protection violations, and a myriad of other matters. Attorneys who handle civil litigation matters are often referred to as “litigators” or “trial lawyers.”

Anyone who has been injured as the result of the negligence or recklessness of another may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries. This may include reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages and loss of the ability to earn a living. Personal injury verdicts and settlements may also provide compensation for the injured party’s pain and suffering and for the effect the party’s injuries have had on their spouse and their ability to enjoy life and go about their day-to-day affairs.
If you have been injured as the result of someone else’s doing, or if you are being wrongfully accused of harming another, give us a call at 865.247.5689 to discuss a possible consultation. You can also email us at info@TenryLaw.com and someone will be in touch with you shortly.
One of the most heartbreaking and difficult things we deal with as people is the death of a spouse, child or other close family member. To make matters worse, instead of mourning, family members often have to wade through an abyss of legal papers, insurance companies and the like after their loved ones pass. When a loved one’s death is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, the situation can be even harder to handle. If you believe your spouse, family member or someone else close to you has wrongfully died as the result of another party’s carelessness, you should contact an attorney to discuss the legal implications of your loved one’s passing. Zach will be happy to talk with you further. Just give us a call (865.247.5689) or send an email to info@TenryLaw.com.
Premises Liability – People who own and control real property, whether it be commercial establishments like grocery stores, or even private residences, have a duty to correct any known dangerous conditions on their property so that visitors don’t get hurt because of conditions that are hidden or otherwise difficult to see. This can include faulty flooring, spilled liquid, insufficient lighting, and countless other issues. If they haven’t fixed or cleaned up a problem they are aware of, owners have a duty to warn their visitors of the dangerous condition. When property owners or tenants fail to uphold these duties and someone ends up being hurt, the owner and/or tenant may be liable for their visitor’s injuries.

Product defects and improper alterations to certain products can result in serious injury and property damage. Even worse, many wrongful death claims arise from someone’s negligent manufacturing or alteration of various products. In a perfect world, we would have the comfort of knowing that we were going to be able to use a purchased product safely once we walk away from the store or distributor. But that is simply not always the case. If you have suffered an injury or property damage as the result of a faulty product used by you or someone else, give us a call (865.247.5689) or send us an email (info@TenryLaw.com) to discuss whether we might be of assistance.
Consumer Protection – Unfortunately, businesses don’t always treat their customers fairly. Conversely, consumers sometimes expect more from providers of goods and services than they are entitled to. As one might expect, the laws regarding the relationship between business owners and their customers are quite broad and can sometimes be confusing or intimidating. If you have found yourself in a serious dispute over an agreement regarding goods or services, give us a call (865.247.5689) or send us an email (info@TenryLaw.com) to discuss whether we might be of assistance.
Contract disputes make up a significant portion of the legal disputes that end up in court. The cause can be an inartfully drafted contract, a simple misunderstanding, or one or more parties being unreasonable and failing to uphold their end of the bargain. Quite often, contract disputes arise out of one or more parties not reading (or at least not understanding) what it is they are signing. Whether you need help drafting or revising a contract or are already amidst a dispute over the terms of a contract to which you are a party, The Tenry Law Firm would be happy to consult with you regarding possible representation. Just give us a call (865.247.5689) or send us an email (info@TenryLaw.com) to discuss whether we might be of assistance.
Some business arrangements go off without a hitch and long-term relationships are formed that are beneficial to everyone involved. Other times, expectations are not met. Those failed expectations can end up costing companies thousands of dollars in lost profit and productivity. Ideally, the companies involved in such disputes will come to terms that are acceptable to both sides and move one. However, sometimes the parties simply cannot see eye-to-eye and their disagreements need to be sorted out in court or through alternative dispute resolution.The Tenry Law Firm would be happy to consult with you regarding possible representation.
