What to expect when unexpected loss occurs

You no doubt remember exactly what you were doing when you got the call that told you there had been a terrible accident involving your loved one. Your memory of events beyond that moment, however, may be a lot more vague. In fact, your next conscious memory may be of a time that came hours, even days later. Memory loss is a common factor associated with shock, post-traumatic stress syndrome and the typical grieving process, as if there is such a thing.

Did a nice day for a bike ride end with a trip to the hospital?

Tennessee has many scenic routes and rural roadways that are perfect for bicycle travel. Like many other tourists and full-time residents throughout the state, this may be your favorite form of exercise and outdoor activity.

Perhaps every member of your family owns bicycles, and you frequently travel together, pedaling miles at a time. Nothing can bring bicycle fun to a screeching halt quite like a negligent motorist.

Don't let denied workers' comp claims leave you out in the cold

The inexperience of a teenage driver could prove deadly

Tennessee parents all across the state both dread and look forward to their teenagers being able to get a driver's license. It's a sign of independence and often seen as a rite of passage.

How do I know if I am eligible for disability benefits?

While this is a serious situation, there could be options for certain types of financial support available to you.

Sleeping on safety: Tired drivers are dangerous drivers

What do your rehabilitation rights include after a work accident?

A work accident can be the source of many complications and stressful issues in your life. From the medical care you need to paying your bills while you can't work, your on-the-job accident may have a significant negative impact on your life. In your situation, one of the most productive things you can do is to seek an assessment of your rights and an explanation of the benefits available to injured Tennessee workers.

Understanding why a claim was denied before submitting an appeal

The aftermath of suffering serious injuries in a workplace accident can be a stressful and daunting process.

Truck driver safety may not always protect you on the road

When traveling the roadways, all drivers have the responsibility of doing their best to operate their vehicles as safely as possible.

Of course, even though you may take such steps, other individuals on the roads may still make you feel a bit nervous.

Area of spinal injury could impact severity of outcomes
