Children and bicycle accidents

For a parent, there are many different concerns to keep in mind with respect to a child's well-being. Many parents are concerned about problems their child may face in the classroom, from performance on school assignments to bullies. However, when a child is involved in a traffic accident, his or her parent may feel as if their worst nightmare has come true. Many children enjoy riding bicycles, which can be a great way for them to get exercise and spend time with friends. Unfortunately, there is also the risk of being hit by a vehicle if they ride near the road.

Parking lots are not much safer than roads for auto accidents

Most of us are extremely careful near roadways and highways. Whether we’re walking or driving, we all seem to naturally understand the dangers in these areas. But most of us feel pretty safe in parking lots. As long as we’re generally watching where we’re going, we don’t expect to get into accidents while walking through parking lots, where most drivers are going extra slow and driving more carefully.

Is your RV equipped with “the worst tire made in history”?

Most automobile accidents are a result of user error. If every driver would know the rules and follow all safety considerations with care, there would be almost no accidents. Therefore you can usually trace an accident back to some mistake or oversight made by one of the drivers involved.

What are my options for recovering damages following an accident?

If you are injured in an accident in Tennessee, the last thing you want to think about is dealing with the insurance company, yours or anyone else’s. However, it is crucial to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible with any and all insurance carriers who may have a stake in the accident, so you can assess your options for recovering damages. 

The most common dangers of motorcycling

This winter season may be a long one, but motorcycle enthusiasts across Tennessee are eagerly awaiting fresh spring air and long, open roads. Even though the pure joy of riding outweighs the risks, many riders have faced tough times after an accident. Fortunately, state law protects motorcyclists from distracted and dangerous drivers, but there are other hazards to watch out for.

Tennessee works to minimize drunk driving

Drunk driving has been a problem since the automobile has been invented. For many years, the legislatures of states throughout the country have focused most of their efforts on lowering the legal blood-alcohol limit and increasing penalties. Although these efforts are laudable, they haven’t been particularly effective, as drunk driving continues to destroy lives every year in the United States.

Trucker regulations focus on fatigue

As you likely know, commercial truckers often spend many long and lonely hours behind the wheels of their big rigs. This fact may put many innocent residents in Tennessee at risk when they encounter these tired truckers on the road. Whether as drivers themselves, passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcylists, every person deserves to know that commercially licensed drivers are operating their vehicles safely.
