Waffles, death and a wrongful death suit

Waffles are a wonderful food and Waffle Houses have become popular destinations for Americans to satisfy their waffle cravings. Tennessee is no exception to the American love affair with this popular breakfast staple. Sadly, a mass shooting last April may have tainted the experience for some Nashville residents. A judge recently ruled that a mother of one of the victims could sue the defendant for wrongful death.

Thanksgiving, turkey and dangerous products

Thanksgiving is upon us and so turkey consumption is way up in Tennessee. This does not make this the ideal time for a large recall of turkey products, but Jennie-O has announced a recall of as many as 91,000 pounds of ground turkey because of a salmonella outbreak. While salmonella poisoning may be prevented by proper cooking and handling of raw poultry, the outbreak has nonetheless created dangerous products.

Holidays are a less than ideal time for dangerous products

The holidays are upon us, and that means that home bakers are, or soon will be, baking cakes and cookies to share with family and friends. Many recipes start with pre-packaged cake mix as an ingredient. Duncan Hines, a popular brand, is currently the subject of a voluntary product recall. Dangerous products are subject to recall, and a number of Duncan Hines cake mixes are suspected as being the source of a salmonella outbreak. The cake mixes are distributed all over the country, including Tennessee.

Veterans Affairs Hospital sued for wrongful death

The Veterans Affairs has come under fire lately for quality of care issues in VA hospitals. While improvements have been made, there are still serious issues concerning quality of care. One of these resulted in a wrongful death lawsuit against a Tennessee VA hospital.

Employment law does not apply to all

Most workers in Tennessee and around the country are protected from workplace discrimination issues such as age, race religion and gender. However, there is a large group of workers who are not protected by employment law. That group is made up of the independent contractors, freelance workers and other contract workers who makeup an estimated 15 to 30 percent of the American workforce.
