Drunk driver leaves Monroe County man injured

A Monroe County newspaper publisher was critically injured recently in an accident that involved a drunk driver. The intoxicated driver crossed the center line and struck the publisher's vehicle head on. Authorities arrested the drunk driver and charged him with vehicular assault and his fourth DUI. A car accident like this should never happen, but when it does, legal action should be taken.

4-vehicle accident leaves 1 injured, closes interstate

Accident severity runs the gamut from minor fender-benders with no injuries to the devastating multi-car pile-ups where fatalities abound. Fatal accidents caused by negligent drivers call for legal action. But there may be grounds for a lawsuit in a car accident that results in only minor injuries and vehicle damage. One example of such a crash happened recently in Tennessee.

Head-on collision in Grainger County leaves 2 dead

A typical car ride can turn tragic in the blink of an eye. All it takes is a brief moment of inattentiveness to turn a family's life upside down. Sadly, this was the case recently in Grainger County when a driver crossed the center line and crashed head-on into an oncoming car. The car accident resulted in the death of two passengers. The two drivers were also injured.

Ride for motorcycle awareness calls for safer driving

So far this year in Tennessee there have been 102 deaths resulting from motorcycle crashes. This high number is the result of a number of factors, but perhaps the most devastating is the inattentive driver. A negligent driver who is not paying attention on the road can easily cause a motorcycle accident by a change of lanes without looking or a failure to yield to a motorcycle.
