Wrongful death claims - a way to value someone's life

Anyone who has lost a family member or loved one will tell you that it is, by far, one of the most emotionally taxing events that can happen to a person. When the death can be attributed to the recklessness or negligence of another, it becomes even more difficult to accept. In such cases, the Tennessee legal system provides for justice for the victim as a wrongful death claim may be filed by the remaining family members.

DUI car accidents affects innocent victims

A Tennessee accident on a recent Wednesday in July is a good example of the disruptive results of a DUI accident. At around 12:45 a.m., a vehicle operated by a man who police say was driving under the influence hit another car head-on. The suspected drunk driver was headed the wrong way on an on-ramp. Six people suffered injuries in the accident. As is the case with many DUI car accidents, this collision resulted in injuries to innocent victims. 

Medical malpractice claims: Where to start?

Medical providers, such as the doctors and the nurses who care for you as a patient, are people in whom you place your trust and who you believe will do what is best for you in a time of need.

The main purpose of the operation is to decrease the number of truck accidents on U.S highways.
