Rear-end collision leaves 10 injured

Many of us drive every day. Whether to work, school, or just to run errands, operating a vehicle often becomes a part of our routine. Since it is such a common activity, many individuals may find themselves driving without much thought. This can be dangerous for other motorists. Those who are inattentive behind the wheel may be too slow to react to the situation ahead of them, which could cause a car accident with serious consequences.

Drunk driving accident can hit anyone, anywhere, anytime

It is no secret that drunk drivers take to Tennessee's roads on a daily basis. However, the extent of the problem can be startling. For example, a study has shown that 300,000 people drive drunk in the United States each day. Perhaps just as disconcerting is the fact that only about 4,000 of these drunk drivers are arrested, and nearly half of drivers killed in crashes were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Distracted driving poses significant dangers

Our society is one that is always on the go. Though this may be good for our economy and cultural growth, it means many Tennesseans are having to multitask just to finish their daily duties. This often happens when individuals are behind the wheel. They may be talking on the phone, texting, checking email, eating or even grooming. These drivers, sometimes without even realizing it, are significantly increasing the risk that they will cause a car accident and, perhaps, injuries and death.

Wrongful death lawsuits and the loss of a child

Car accidents are common throughout the Knoxville area and Tennessee as a whole. Sometimes, these wrecks are purely accidental, but many times someone is at fault. When the wreck leaves an individual dead, that victim's family may be left with significant harm, both emotional and financial. Fatal accidents that are caused by a negligent driver may give rise to a wrongful death lawsuit, whereby the victim's family can attempt to recover compensation for those losses.
