What is whiplash?

If you have been injured in a car accident, then you may have suffered whiplash. Whiplash is one of the most common car wreck injuries, and can wreak havoc on your well-being. This type of injury is typically caused when a car is rear-ended, forcing your head to snap back and forth. This violent motion can hyperextend, strain, or sprain your cervical joints, causing neck stiffness, sharp pain, neck and back problems, and, potentially, cognitive setbacks.

Hurt by a distracted driver? We may be able to help

As we discussed last week on the blog, distracted driving remains a serious problem plaguing the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee, and America. A driver who is talking on the phone, texting, operating a GPS, eating, or looking for something within the cabin of his or her vehicle can quickly turn a routine drive into a living nightmare. He or she could cross the center line, fail to stop at a stop sign, or fail to brake in time, resulting in a tragic car accident.

Distracted driving remains a serious issue for motorists

Technology has come a long way in the past twenty years. Cell phones and GPS alone have revolutionized the way we communicate and travel. However, despite the advantages emerging technologies may bring us, they often also carry multiple disadvantages that could leave us or others injured. One prominent example can be seen in distracted driving.

Two buses involved in fatal Knoxville accident

Many Knoxville residents may be aware of a recent school bus accident that left four people injured and three dead, including two elementary-aged students and a teacher's aide. This tragic accident, which involved two school buses, has left many in our community wondering how such a thing could happen. Investigators from the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Knoxville Police department are analyzing the busses to determine if mechanical failure played a role in the wreck. However, both busses passed inspections conducted not long ago. The National Transportation Safety Bureau will join the investigation.

What is negligent entrustment and vicarious liability?

When you are injured in a car accident, you may be subjected to extensive physical pain and suffering. However, in the aftermath of the incident, you might also find yourself struggling to pay your medical and other bills, especially if you are forced to miss work and therefore lose wages. Thus, it often becomes imperative for car accident victims to do everything they can to ensure they recover the fullest compensation possible from those who may be held liable.
