How do I recover compensation in a drunk driving case?

It is a sad reality that many Tennesseans, while in a state of intoxication, choose to climb behind the wheel of a vehicle. These motorists pose a threat not only to themselves, but also to other drivers around them. These drunk drivers can cause a tragic accident in a matter of seconds, whether by swerving, speeding or failing to yield. When one of these wrecks occurs, a victim can be left with serious damages in the form of physical, emotional and financial losses.

What is loss of consortium in a legal claim?

This blog frequently discusses the types of damages that can be caused by a car crash, including the physical, emotional and financial toll such an accident can take. While car wreck victims may struggle to reclaim their health, they might also struggle with their bills, many times thanks in no small part to medical expenses and lost wages. However, there are intangible losses that one may never fully be able to reclaim. For these losses, compensation may still be recoverable.

What are the requirements to obtain a CDL in Tennessee?

Most Tennesseans at least see a semi-truck every day if they do not drive next to them. These massive vehicles play an important role in our society, yet they also pose a significant threat, as the extreme weight of these trucks compared to other vehicles on the road is astounding. What could otherwise be a relatively minor accident between two cars can turn into a devastating, fatal truck crash when a big rig is involved. Therefore, it is imperative that truck drivers are properly qualified before hitting the road, helping ensure that all of Tennessee's motorists are safe.

More Tennessee DUI arrests, seatbelt citations in 2014

It is a sad reality that many Tennesseans die each year in car accidents. In fact, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, more than 950 individuals died on our state's roads in fatal accidents in 2014. Nearly 21 percent of these wrecks were alcohol-related even though more than 8,000 DUI arrests occurred in 2014, up significantly over arrests made in 2013. These numbers are staggering, and similar 2012 data put Tennessee 11th on the list of states with the most traffic fatalities per miles traveled by vehicle.
