Up until now, many truck drivers have been able to conceal a history of drug or alcohol abuse.

Workers’ Compensation and Knee Injuries

By |December 23rd, 2019|Workers Compensation|0 Comments

The knee is one of the most useful and important joints in our bodies. It allows us to run, jump, sit and squat. If you’ve injured your knee, you know how much you depend on it every day. And, if you have a job that requires you to move around a lot, an injury can put you out of commission for weeks or even longer. For most of us, no work equals no paycheck. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 105,700 employees suffered knee injuries on the job in 2018 [...]

When someone is involved in an accident, EMTs and paramedics check them for injuries – broken bones, head injuries, lacerations or spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries require immediate and skilled medical care, and many patients face a long road of physical rehabilitation and recovery. While we’re trying to deal with these types of traumatic injuries, we may not realize we’re also suffering from emotional or psychological injuries as well. In certain cases, Tennessee law allows victims of car crashes and other accidents to seek compensation for damages for emotional [...]

We all want the best for our parents, but it can often be difficult to discuss certain topics with them, especially as they grow older.

And, once it’s too late, you could have a complicated and potentially contentious process on your hands. This is why it’s crucial to take some time and sit down with your parents to talk [...]

By |December 3rd, 2019|Truck Accident|0 Comments

In 2015, online shopping giant Amazon launched a new offering called Amazon Flex. This program, similar in structure to rideshare gigs like Lyft and Uber, lets qualified individuals work as independent contractors and deliver Amazon packages to customers using their own trucks and vehicles.

If you’re injured in an accident with an Amazon delivery driver, issues of liability can be complex, especially when [...]

By |November 26th, 2019|Workers Compensation|0 Comments

We commute back and forth to work every day, many of us in our own personal vehicles. When we do so, we’re not really considered “on the clock” at our jobs until we walk in the door or onto the job site and start working. So, unfortunately, if you happen to be in an accident on your way to or from work, you may not be able to seek damages under workers’ compensation. However, many workers are suffering injuries in car accidents regardless. According to the National Safety Council, motor vehicle [...]

Rental moving trucks are not always as massive as commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers, but they are larger than standard passenger vehicles. Due to their size, they are more difficult to operate. However, there is no law that requires the drivers of these vehicles to undergo training or obtain a particular license to operate one of these moving trucks. Anyone who has a standard vehicle license can rent and drive one of these trucks. This is part of the reason why many of these vehicles are involved in numerous accidents each [...]
