Motorcycle accidents and broken legs

Fall may be in full swing, but that is not stopping Tennesseans from hitting the roadways with their motorcycles. Though riding a bike can be an enjoyable experience, it can also be extremely dangerous when other motorists act negligently. When a distracted, intoxicated or unaware driver causes a motorcycle accident, the victim can suffer a wide variety of injuries. Amongst them are road rash, facial fractures and injuries to the lower extremities.

Cargo securement regulations seek to ensure safety

Just about any Tennessean who drives frequently has seen trucks hauling cargo that seemed a little too big for the vehicle itself or cargo that looked a little too insecure to be on the road. There are regulations that seek to ensure that cargo is properly secured, but the fact of the matter is that far too often truckers and those hauling materials fail to abide by these rules, either out of ignorance, an attempt to save time or sheer lack of care.

Hurt in a hit-and-run accident? Help is available

Our last post on the blog discussed an instance where a woman was injured in a hit-and-run accident. Sadly, these types of accidents happen all the time across Tennessee. Drivers far too often fail to take notice of pedestrians and bicyclists, thereby causing a failure to operate their vehicle in a safe fashion. A driver may fail to yield at a crosswalk, provide space to a bicyclist or neglect to move over for someone stranded on the side of the road.

Knoxville woman injured in hit-and-run car accident

It seems like, nowadays, people drive everywhere Tennesseans go, no matter the distance. There is nothing wrong with this as it makes life easier, allowing individuals to accomplish their daily tasks in a comfortable and efficient fashion. However, there are still a significant amount of individuals who walk along our city's and our state's busy roadways. Some walk as their primary means of transportation, while others do so for recreation. Regardless of the purpose, these individuals can be seriously injured when motorists fail to remain aware of pedestrians.

Tennessee truck drivers and cell phone use

Most Tennesseans know that distracted driving, particularly cell phone usage, can be extremely dangerous. Refraining from cell phone usage and other distractions, while behind the wheel, can prevent serious, perhaps even fatal accidents. When this topic is discussed, quite often it is in the context of regular, everyday commuters. But, what about those who drive commercial vehicles?
