What's the best way to deal with road rage?

A road rage incident in New Orleans last week demonstrates how crazy our highways have become. The two male drivers pulled off the road. One man accused the other of cutting him off. An argument ensued, and ended when one driver pulled out a gun and shot the other man dead.

Seek treatment right away for an animal bite

If you are bitten by an animal in Tennessee, you want to seek treatment and medical assistance as soon as you can. Bites can become infected if they're not treated, and diseases like rabies are transmitted through bites. Even if it seems minor, you may need shots, so you definitely want to talk to a medical professional, rather than simply washing the bite yourself and hoping for the best.

Summer can be deadly for teen drivers

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.

The issue of aggressive driving

When you think of road rage, you typically think of drivers cutting each other off, yelling out their windows, and allowing it to severely impact their driving. However, there is a dangerous type of driving that is a step below full-blown road rage, and it's known simply as aggressive driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this has really turned into a serious issue.

Owners may say dog bites are your fault

When a dog attacks in Tennessee, it can be very traumatic, whether it attacks you or your child. Not only is this terrifying, but it can lead to an extended hospital stay, high medical bills and scars that may never heal. When you ask for compensation, though, you'll find that dog owners may use a common defense, saying that the dog was not at fault.

Dashcams reveal over 50 percent of accidents involve distraction

Dashcams have become very popular for many reasons, including their usefulness in an accident, as they can help to establish what happened and who was at fault. However, a new study examined dashcam footage and found that distracted driving may be even more of an issue than many people assumed, perhaps causing more than 50 percent of all teen car crashes.

Injuries stemming from violent car accidents in Tennessee

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.

Can animal bites get worse over time?

Getting bitten by a dog or another animal in Tennessee is bad enough, but can the bite actually get worse over time? It's important to consider this if you are looking for compensation, as a bite that gets worse may need further medical treatment in the future, which can bring about brand new costs.

Multi-car accident leads to 1 death in Tennessee

Rush-hour traffic stalled on Sam Cooper on March 27 as an accident blocked the eastbound lanes of the highway. Three vehicles were involved in the crash, and witnesses reported that one of the cars was so mangled that it looked like it had caught on fire. The other vehicles were also smashed into pieces, with debris strewn across the highway.

Why do dog bites turn into fatalities?

A dog bite injury is bad enough, but far too many dog attacks turn fatal. In fact, between the years 2000 and 2009 in the United States, there were a total of 256 fatal attacks. To find out why this happened, researchers studied the individual attacks to find out what things contributed to the deaths.
