Car accidents involving pedestrians are often fatal

On a warm spring evening in Tennessee, it is common to see people out enjoying the weather. This may include those who run or jog in the cool evening to avoid the midday heat. Unfortunately, a distracted or impaired driver may not notice someone on the shoulder of the road. Car accidents involving pedestrians can result in catastrophic, even deadly injuries.

Deli meats and cheeses may be dangerous products

Standing in line at the deli counter to order lunch meats is something shoppers do many times a day in Tennessee and all over the country. Unfortunately, the products that they rely on to provide lunches for family members may cause their family members to become ill. A recent listeria outbreak has been linked to deli meats and cheeses that have caused them to be considered potentially dangerous products.

Distracted walking is dangerous

Virtually every week, you likely see an article about a distracted driver causing an automobile collision. While you should always pay attention while behind the wheel, distracted walking can also be dangerous. That is, if you fail to watch your surroundings, you may increase your chances of sustaining a serious injury in a pedestrian-vehicle crash. 

Food items can also be dangerous products

Consumers in Tennessee should be able to expect that the food they purchase from the grocery store is safe for them and their families. Unfortunately, as recent recalls have demonstrated, food items can be dangerous products. Fresh cut fruit that was distributed to a number of states recently sickened nearly 100 people. While there have been no reports of illness in Tennessee, the salmonella-tainted fruit was also distributed to the state.

Dangerous products can be fatal to babies

Welcoming a new baby into the world can be one of the most joyous times in a young couple's life in Tennessee. In preparing for the new arrival any number of purchases may be made to ensure that the new bundle of joy can start a new life in comfort and safety. Fisher Price has long been respected as a brand name in baby supplies. Sadly, one of its very popular products, the Rock 'n Play, has been deemed hazardous and is among items considered to be dangerous products.

Employment law still relevant in combatting discrimination

In the year 2019 one might think that women have earned the right to be treated equally in the workplace. Indeed, employment law since the 1960s has stipulated that it is illegal to discriminate against employees because of their race, religion, sex or nationality. As long as a person has the capacity to perform a job, employment law is intended to protect one from discrimination in Tennessee and around the country.
