Tennessee car accidents and negligence laws

Say you are driving on one of Knoxville's busy roadways and a motorist runs a stoplight and crashes into the side of your car. You probably assume that the other driver is 100 percent at fault. In an effort to acquire compensation for personal injury or property damage or both, you initiate a legal action. Now, imagine your surprise when the court assigns a portion of the blame to you.

What could cause a social security disability claim denial?

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program helps individuals who are unable to continue working. The benefits provided by this program ensure people can keep paying their bills, receiving the right medical care and simply surviving during times of need. Each year, millions of people, including Tennessee residents, apply to receive SSDI.

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.

Do you have a personal injury case? Ask yourself these questions

One of the most common things we hear from our Knoxville neighbors is that they did not realize they had grounds to file a personal injury claim. To those who have never experienced a serious injury, it seems straightforward. A person suffers an injury because of another party's negligence or carelessness and files a claim. However, these legal issues can actually be complicated and confusing in some cases.

Stay alert to these common workplace hazards

Whether you are new to a job or are a seasoned veteran, it is important to remain vigilant to danger at all times. New workers may face hazards with which they are unfamiliar, and seasoned workers can allow complacency to lull them into a false sense of security. When workplace injuries do occur, they can be minor and only keep you out of work for a few days, or they can be serious enough to threaten your life and your income.

What does the attractive nuisance doctrine mean?

If you are a parent, you probably understand how the curiosity of children can sometimes get them into trouble. Perhaps your child has touched a hot stove or climbed onto an unsafe surface in your home. Even though you and other parents in the Knoxville region likely strive to teach your kids about safety, curiosity can still place them in hazardous situations. This is especially the case as children grow older and begin to explore their neighborhoods.
