Car accidents resulting from negligence have devastating effects

As the weather begins to warm up across Tennessee, many drivers are taking to the roads for excursions. Traveling the scenic routes, especially for drivers who travel the roadway frequently, can lead to a complacency that can result a minor fender bender or even a serious auto accident. Car accidents that result from driver complacency can be a difficult situation to go through, especially when children are involved.

Car accidents: Negligent drivers can put children at risk

It may be tempting to ignore yellow or red lights when the roadway seems empty or one is in a hurry. The placing of traffic lights and the responsibility to heed traffic laws helps to ensure that all drivers are safe and arrive at their intended destinations without becoming involved in car accidents. Ignoring posted speed limits and traffic signals can have serious of even fatal repercussions, as one young man from Tennessee recently learned.

Tennessee car accidents increase with speed and complacency

Many Tennessee roadways consist of curves and turns that require a decrease of speed and the use of caution. Some motorists become complacent when traveling familiar routes, which can lead to an increase in speed and an increased likelihood of car accidents. A local woman may be facing criminal charges after killing one and injuring another in head-on collision.

Popular supplement makes the dangerous products list

Supplements are the way most Americans can satisfy the lack of nutritional value in the typical diet. Vitamins and supplemental protocol have a long list of dietary aids that help assist in many areas of deficit in one' diet. Some advocates also claim the healing benefits of an herbal or supplemental regime in curing or easing symptoms of certain illnesses. What some Tennessee alternative medicine proponents may not realize is that many of these supplements can interfere with western medicine, and some supplements are considered dangerous products by the Food and Drug Administration.

Using social media to fire employees could violate employment law

With the increased access to social media platforms, it has come as no surprise that many employees are learning about the loss of a job from their mobile apps rather than from their employers. In Tennessee, one woman learned through the co-worker grapevine that she had lost her job, but she did not receive verbal confirmation from her former employer. Employment law stipulates how the release from one's job duties is to be carried out, and the use of social media platforms is not the way to go.
