A lot of violence comes from a place of intimate emotions. A study shows that more than one in three women and more than one in four men have experienced domestic violence in the form of stalking, physical assault or sexual assault from an intimate partner. Tennessee itself has one of the highest rates in the nation of female fatalities at the hands of a partner.
Tennessee has accessible laws allowing people to sue others who were responsible for injuries they sustained. This is often straightforward if the victim of an injury can prove negligence or other liability to the satisfaction of a judge or jury. This can be a trickier matter if it takes some connections from the liable party and the injured party.
The prospect of unmanageable debt is always scary. Some people have lost their life savings and even family fortunes to bad business deals or excessive lifestyles. But Tennesseans should not be afraid of losing their homes in a debt settlement or bankruptcy proceeding, because the Volunteer State is one of several that has homestead laws.
Estate planning is a difficult subject to introduce at the table, especially for children. It is natural to wonder how children will handle the estate of parents after their lives or during a time of mental incapacity. It is also important because a good estate plan when someone can make one is an investment for a time when others will have to make decisions.
All it takes is one mistake to get a DUI. Former Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton received a citation for driving while under the influence of alcohol. He received orders to enter a treatment program, which he has complied with.
Anyone who has survived a Tennessee summer may have felt assaulted by heat, insects and humidity. Although no one can file charges against the weather, anyone in Tennessee may file charges against someone who assaulted them, even if no physical violence came to pass.
