Youth should be protected from dangerous products

Protecting the health of young people in Tennessee is a priority for parents, teachers, those in the medical profession and other caring adults. There is a product in the marketplace that may have the capacity to negatively impact the health of a large number of young people. Students in middle and high schools are particularly at risk. The dangerous products that kids are using in ever growing numbers are vaping devices, or e-cigarettes.

Attempt to create summer memories ends in wrongful death suit

Summertime is a time for family outings and enjoying the beauty of mother nature. Children grow up quickly, and summertime is an excellent time to create childhood memories that can last a lifetime. However, mother nature can be very unpredictable where questions of weather are concerned in Tennessee. One family fell victim to a horrible tragedy that may have been preventable. The resulting death of a child has led to a wrongful death lawsuit.

Car accidents too often prematurely end promising lives

The unexpected death of a loved one is a horrible shock to bear in Tennessee. The shock and pain are magnified when the loved one is a child on the brink of adulthood with his or her life just beginning. A beloved 17-year-old high school senior was recently killed as the result of one of many car accidents that occur on local roadways.

Lack of caution can result in fatal truck accidents

Truck traffic on Tennessee highways is ever increasing. Just as cars can break down, so can trucks. When a car or truck is broken down on the side of the road, especially after dark, the safest option is for drivers to move over to the left lane or, failing that, to slow down as they pass the stopped vehicle. In particular, a person needs to be alert for people moving around the disabled vehicle as visibility, particularly with semi-trucks, can be impaired. Failure to exercise care can result in serious truck accidents.

Use of potentially dangerous products increasing in schools

Vaping is on the rise in many Tennessee middle and high schools. There is a state law prohibiting the use or possession of such products on school grounds, but one month into the new school year 342 students in East Tennessee have been caught vaping or in possession of vaping related items. With the significant increase in reported lung ailments that appear to be connected to vaping, it is not a stretch to identify the items as being potentially dangerous products.
