The idea of being compensated when you have been harmed -- of simple justice -- is ancient. But not every player in the game is on the up and up.
For young people, car accidents are consistently at the top of the list when looking at causes of death in Tennessee. Summer offers a break from school and teen drivers dream of going to the beach, going out with friends and having all sorts of fun while they have no obligations. The reality, though, is that this is often a recipe for increased accidents and increased fatality rates.
Naturally, a car accident can lead to a wide array of injuries, almost too wide to name them all. However, there are certain types of injures that show up far more than others, and it's important to know what they are when thinking about things like compensation for medical bills and the impact on one's life going forward.
Doctors have said that a woman who was injured in a car accident, who has been in a coma since the incident, may not ever wake up from that coma. To make matters more complicated, she is around five months pregnant with her first child.
Any kind of car accident can have lingering or long lasting effects for a victim and that victim's family. If there are any injuries related to a car wreck, the consequences can extend beyond just the damage to a vehicle. Injuries can lead to life-long pain and suffering and seriously impact a victim's ability to work --whether temporarily or permanently. Those involved in a car wreck in Tennessee may benefit by understanding the real impact of lost wages and what can be done about it.
Being on the road can be a dangerous endeavor, whether in a vehicle or walking along the roadway. The sheer force of being involved in a car accident can lead to devastating injuries or worse for pedestrians and vehicle occupants alike. A recent car accident along a Tennessee roadway ended with the death of a pedestrian.
Whenever a person is involved in a Tennessee car accident, there are a wide range of injuries possible -- regardless of the type of vehicle or circumstances. While some injuries may be superficial and easy to recover from, other injuries may require ongoing care that can also have a lasting impact on a person's life. Head injuries resulting from a car accident should be taken very seriously.
Even when all parties on the road are abiding by the rules of the road, there is still the potential for a traffic accident. Intersections are a common place for car accidents to occur. Recently, in Tennessee, a car accident at an intersection took the life of one of the drivers involved.
Cars traveling toward each other can pose a greater risk to drivers and passengers compared to when there aren't other cars around. A head-on collision can lead to greater damage and injury compared to a single-car accident. If the head-on collision occurs because a car is traveling in the wrong lane, the results can be fatal. One recent head-on collision in Tennessee led to the life of a child being taken.
Any kind of car and motorcycle accident can result in injuries or worse for those involved. However, when there are several vehicles involved, there may be a greater risk of injury for anyone who is caught up in the car accident. A recent multi-vehicle car accident on a Tennessee roadway resulted in one individual losing his life and a road closure that lasted for several hours.
