Injury symptoms not always immediately apparent

As you recover from your car accident, you may rely on others to assist you in your daily needs, especially if your injuries were moderate to severe. Hopefully, doctors have given you a hopeful prognosis for achieving a full recovery; also hopefully, you can collect benefits at work to help make ends meet while you're away from your duties. On the other hand, this description typically applies to a best-case scenario, and more often than not, accident recuperation doesn't always go as planned. 

There's no way to drive safely while distracted

Like most roadways in the nation, Tennessee highways are often busy, traffic-laden areas where you may feel as though you put your best driving skills to the test just to safely travel to your destination. From drivers cutting into your lane, failing to yield or ignoring stop signs, the risks for collision are high. The best you can do is stay alert and adhere to all traffic regulations while hoping that the other motorists in your vicinity will do the same.

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. It's always fun to get some fresh air and sunshine while getting in a good aerobic workout as well. 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

While many Tennessee residents earn their livings indoors, a significant percentage of the workforce spend its working hours outside -- regardless of weather conditions. If your job required you to brave the freezing weather in recent weeks, your health might have suffered. Exposure to extreme weather conditions can lead to serious injuries or illness.

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. On the other hand, it marks a time when parents can no longer protect their children from the hazards of driving.

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

It is both frustrating and overwhelming for a Tennessee resident when he or she is unable to work because of a debilitating medical condition. When you are unable to hold gainful employment, it is a direct threat to the financial well-being of your family. 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

Tennessee drivers know there are a myriad of risks and hazards that could threaten their personal safety while on the road. From dangerous road conditions to distracted drivers, many factors could lead to an increased chance of a car accident. One of these issues is drowsy driving.

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. Following your accident, you might experience financial challenges that often accompany extensive medical costs, and if forced to take time off of work, you could be feeling somewhat overwhelmed and in need of relief.
