This legal professional can provide guidance throughout the process for those involved in Tennessee accidents.

One recent such car crash occurred late morning on a Monday. This fatal collision involved a motor vehicle and a pedestrian.

3 killed, child suffers personal injury in Tennessee car accident

Many think of motor vehicle collisions involving solely those old enough to drive. However, children are often innocent passengers in Tennessee car accidents, resulting in injury or even death. One recent crash involved two vehicles, leaving several dead and one child suffering personal injury. The family members of the deceased victims and the parents or guardians of the injured child may be entitled to file claims for financial relief through the civil justice system.

A 59-year-old man was traveling along the roadway on a Wednesday night headed westward. As his vehicle was moving, the driver crossed over the centerline separating opposing traffic.

Drunk driving cause of Tennessee accident leaving 3 injured

The holiday seasons typically bring family and friends together to celebrate. Unfortunately, they are also a time when there is an increase in accidents involving drinking and driving. Tennessee victims of collisions caused by driver impairment can file civil claims for their personal injury. One recent car accident resulted in the injury of three people and was reportedly caused by drunk driving. 

Late on a Thursday night, one man was heading home when he saw a truck swerving through the lanes of the roadway. The truck soon traveled into the lanes of opposing traffic. After the driver of one vehicle successfully avoided it, the truck slammed into a second car.

Tennessee hit-and-run results in possible wrongful death

With restaurants, shopping centers and other attractions nearby, the number of pedestrians tends to be much greater in urban areas and large cities. Choosing to get around town without using a motor vehicle can ease some of the traffic on the roadways. However, this mode of transportation also necessitates that both drivers and pedestrians remain cognizant of their surroundings. A recent Tennessee hit-and-run car accident resulting in possible wrongful death reminds motorists of this fact. 

The collision occurred early one Sunday morning when a woman crossing the street was struck by a motor vehicle. The impact of the crash proved to be fatal, as she was unable to overcome the injury that it caused. The driver allegedly responsible fled the scene of the accident before authorities arrived. Fortunately, officials were able to develop a description of the vehicle through pieces that remained at the scene and a witness statement.

An automobile occupied by a 69-year-old man and his wife was traveling west along the interstate prior to the crash. A tractor-trailer driven by a 57-year-old man was moving in the opposite direction and crossed over the median dividing traffic, slamming into the couple's vehicle. The impact killed the husband at the scene of the crash, while his wife was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment of her injuries. She has since undergone several surgeries in her recovery.

Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle collision or suffering personal injury from a crash can be devastating. Each and every year there are hundreds of thousands of car accidents, many resulting in death. One cause of these tragic accidents is drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Tennessee victims of drinking and driving accidents may have the right to take action.

One Tennessee couple has decided to share their story of how drunk driving changed their lives with others. Eight years ago the couple lost their 3-year-old son in an automobile collision.

As court proceedings begin for the driver deemed responsible, families may want to pursue their right to file civil claims for wrongful death on behalf of those who lost their lives in this tragic accident.

Prior to this crash, reports administrators and students were apparently concerned about the bus driver's behavior as he operated the motor vehicle.

School buses are considered to be a safe mode of transportation for students as they go to and from school and school-related events.

The parents and guardians of those children injured or killed in this accident have the right to take action in the aftermath of this tragedy.

Many people have been affected or know someone who has been injured or killed by someone who decided to drive under the influence.

A man, thought to be around 21 years of age, was traveling along a roadway before his vehicle crossed the centerline dividing traffic and slammed into a vehicle moving in the opposite direction. The impact of the crash injured both parties in the second car. Both were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
