The food, games and rides are part of what makes going to the fair such a beloved pastime for many Tennessee families. Unfortunately, what was apparently a nice day out at the fair turned into something much more terrifying when several riders were injured on a Ferris wheel attraction. Multiple lawsuits have been filed since the accident.
Deaths and serious injuries from unsafe amusement park rides in recent weeks are a reminder of the long history of tragedy associated with such attractions. Just a year ago, three girls suffered serious injury when they fell from a Ferris wheel at the fair in Greenville, Tennessee. At about the same time, a 10-year-old boy was killed on a water slide in another state.
Following too closely is the cause of a great deal of motor vehicle collisions. A recent chain reaction car accident in Tennessee appears to have been a result of this. Those involved in crashes like this one may have the right to file civil claims for the injuries that they suffer. Personal injury lawyers can provide assistance as victims work through this process.
Most people do everything they can to make their home safe and secure for their loved ones who will be living in it. However, sometimes dangers can be present without one knowing. Lead, which is an extremely toxic metal, has been used to make products that one would typically find in and around a house. More recently, the toxicity of lead has been realized and is used less and less for these products. Tennessee families that may have experienced personal injury or illness because of lead-based products may have the right to take action.
Most Tennessee parents are diligent in their efforts to keep their children safe at all times. Some mishaps simply can't be avoided, such as if a little one stumbles and falls while running in the yard or bumps into a tree or other object while playing. However, when a child injury occurs because of a defective product or another person's negligence, parents may feel frustrated and upset and wonder what can be done to rectify the situation.
Consumers typically buy products assuming that they are safe and effective to use. However, in some cases, defective products may lead to injury or death, leaving manufacturers to issue a recall. People in Tennessee who have bought and used a defective product that caused injury or death have the right to file civil claims.
A motor vehicle collision that occurred late last year has left several families still grieving the losses of their loved ones. The impact of the crash cost a number of children their lives, while the driver continues to face the consequences. The family members of those who were killed and injured during the course of this Tennessee car accident have the right to file civil claims for wrongful death and personal injury on their behalves.
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.
School buses are considered to be a safe mode of transportation for students as they go to and from school and school-related events. However, a recent bus accident in Tennessee has people questioning how safe they really are. Families are grieving this week as dozens of children were injured and some lost their lives in this heartbreaking crash. 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.
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.
