Respondeat superior explained

Take a drive around Shelby, and you likely will see at least one commercial vehicle, whether it be a standard delivery truck or an enormous tractor-trailer. While these vehicles are necessary tools of business, they often present risks to other drivers due to their massive size. A collision with one could spell devastation for you and your family. Several people have come to us here at The Gold Law Firm following such accidents facing inordinate expenses and wondering what sort of legal recourse they may have. If you have the same question following your own commercial vehicle accident, the first thing to determine is who is liable.

Distraction and speed involved in fatal school bus wreck

When many people in Tennessee think about how to be safe when on the roads, they logically think about the actions and choices made by the people who are behind the wheels of vehicles. This includes not only the people driving everyday passenger cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles but also those people who operate semi trucks, delivery trucks and school buses. Every person with control of a vehicle has some form of obligation to drive responsibly to keep those in their vehicles as well as in others safe.

Crash fatality statistics in Tennessee

There are many reasons that lead a person to live in a particular state or city. No matter how long you have lived in Tennessee for, you can no doubt easily list off your reasons for living here.
