Community mourns death of teen after fatal accident

A fatal car car accident recently occurred in Sullivan County that took the life of a teen, the authorities say.

The one-vehicle crash took place on a recent Monday afternoon around 4:40 p.m.

2 killed in car accident at recent festival in Tennessee

With summer nearly in full swing in Tennessee, temperatures are climbing. However, as the temperature goes up, gas prices continue to stay at historically low levels, which has led many Tennesseans to hit the roads in their vehicles to take road trips. With more and more vehicles on the roads this summer, the chances of being involved in a car accident increase substantially.

Texting and driving a concern for Tennessee drivers

Today's technology allows one to keep in touch and communicate with friends and family at almost any given point in time. It is possible to make plans, change plans or even say "hi" from just about anywhere. While this convenience has its benefits, the perils of texting and driving have become evident throughout Tennessee.

Construction worker suffers job site injury

Over the course of one's life, a Tennessee worker may be employed in a variety of fields. Out of all the different fields of work an individual may find him or herself engaged in, construction work is often considered the most dangerous. Due to working in unsafe conditions that include tools, heights and heavy equipment, the chance for suffering a job site injury is often high.

The employer's responsibilities for workers' compensation

When a Tennessee worker is injured on the job, the employee typically files a claim with the employer's insurance company. The insurance company then pays benefits, per an approved formula. It is the employer's responsibility to carry workers' compensation insurance and, unless the employer is within certain exempt, limited categories, the employer may be subject to criminal prosecution, including fines and civil liability, if it does not carry this type of required insurance.
