Drunk drivers remain a major cause of car accidents

Drivers are told many times that defensive driving in Tennessee is safe driving and that it is best to expect the unexpected. Some situations can be anticipated such as slowed or stopped traffic. However, it is nearly impossible to be prepared for the completely unexpected and unpredictable situations that can be caused by a drunk driver. Sadly, drunk drivers remain a major cause of car accidents, many of which are fatal.

How do I know if I am working in a hostile environment?

As an employee in Lawrenceburg, you expect your employer to provide you with a safe and nurturing work environment. Instead, you go to work each day dreading the morning meetings, collaborations and projects that you have to work on with obnoxious coworkers. With so much talk in the media about harassment and unfair workplace policies, you cannot help but wonder if you are working in a hostile job environment, and if you are, what should you do about it? 

Tragic child abuse leads to a wrongful death suit

Parenthood is the toughest job a person will ever love. This is a refrain that is heard over and over in Tennessee and, indeed, in any state in the country. It also requires a tremendous amount of patience and forbearance. Sadly, not everyone has the same tolerance level, and tragedies can result. One such tragedy resulted in a wrongful death suit against an office of DCS (Department of Child Services).

Monsanto faces trouble for its possibly dangerous product

Pesticides and herbicides are regularly used by many people every day in Tennessee and elsewhere in this country. People use these products and believe that while they are lethal to weeds or bugs that, used properly, they do not pose a threat to humans. A case recently brought against Monsanto, the makers of RoundUp, refuted that assumption. The company denies that its herbicide is a dangerous product.

Tragic drowning leads to wrongful death suit

Summer is here and young children in Tennessee venture outside to play and explore their surroundings. Children are curious about all that they see and are not always aware of the dangers that may present themselves. This can be particularly true when water is involved. Sadly, tragedies can occur that may ultimately result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

A suspended license doesn't stop car accidents

Traffic laws exist in an attempt to keep drivers in Tennessee safe. This includes penalties for not following the laws that can result in the suspension of a person's license. Sadly, a person whose license has been suspended may violate the order and pose a risk to him or herself or to other drivers. Car accidents may result.
