Treatment in jail may have led to a wrongful death suit

Crime happens. Our criminal justice system exists as a means to punish people who are convicted of crimes in Tennessee. The meaning of justice should not be lost when the meaning of criminal justice is considered. Justice is meant to be fair and that fairness should include the treatment of people serving time for crimes for which they have been convicted. Failing to observe fairness in treatment may have led to a wrongful death suit.

Police shooting results in wrongful death lawsuit

A recent case in Tennessee echoes many similar and unfortunate cases across the country. A Memphis police officer has been charged with wrongful death in the shooting and resulting death of a young man. The lawsuit alleges racial discrimination and profiling contributed to the shooting that caused the man's death.

Medication error may have caused a wrongful death

Nurses perform many critical tasks concerning patient care in a Tennessee hospital setting and one of the most critical is the dispensing of medication. It is vital that the appropriate medication be given to the appropriate patient. To help ensure that this happens, nurses are obliged to follow the Five Rights of Medication. This involves verifying five pieces of information before a medication is administered: right medication, right dose, right means of administration, right time and right patient. Failure to observe these rules can end tragically with a wrongful death.

Raw milk is considered to be among dangerous products

There has been much said and written concerning the safety of many aspects of the nation's food supply. As concerns have mounted in Tennessee over the presence of antibiotics in meat the trend to organic products has grown as nonorganics have come to be seen as dangerous products. Another area of concern has to do with dairy foods, particularly the perceived benefits of raw milk. The dangers of consuming raw milk may outweigh any possible benefits.
