Trucking accidents: Collision involving semi injures 2, kills 1

Every motor vehicle accident has the potential to pose a threat to the health of a person, regardless of the types of vehicles involved. However, with the inherent increase in size and weight of vehicles such as a tractor-trailer, trucking accidents run a greater risk of ending in catastrophe. A recent collision involving a big rig in Tennessee has reportedly left two individuals with injuries and claimed the life of another.

Medical malpractice: A deadly threat to all Americans

Tennessee readers know that when doctors, nurses and other health care providers make mistakes, it can have serious repercussions. Medical malpractice encompasses a wide range of errors, misdiagnoses and other missteps medical professionals sometimes make. Often, it is the result of negligence or reckless behaviors by doctors, nurses and others.

Medical malpractice: Surgical error leads to amputations

Many individuals in Tennessee and elsewhere may view the thought of undergoing even a minor surgical procedure with some level of concern. Although surgeons endure years of studying and training in their respective fields to prepare for future operations, unfortunately, all it takes is one error to leave a patient with life-altering injuries. A woman in another state has recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit after a recent surgical error led to the need to amputate her hands and feet.

Medical malpractice suit for doctor's premature death declaration

Imagine seeking medical treatment for an ailing loved one from a Tennessee health care provider and being told the person is already dead, despite obvious signs of life. Worse still, imagine finding out later that this delay in treatment is what ultimately cost the patient his or her life. As far-fetched and nightmarish as this scenario may sound, it is exactly what a medical malpractice lawsuit in another state alleges.

Businesses sometimes liable for slip-and-fall accidents outside

While Tennessee property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises for customers, they are not necessarily liable for injuries that occur due to a fall on a public sidewalk. However, when dangerous conditions cause slip\-and\-fall accidents on sidewalks or private walkways used exclusively by customers entering and exiting a business, that is a different case altogether. In another state, for example, a woman is suing a hair salon after being injured on the walk outside the building.
