Reporting an accident is necessary in Tennessee

If you get into a car accident in Tennessee, there are a few things you have to do. Initially, you must assess the situation to determine if you need to call for help or make an accident report. If anyone is hurt or there is property damage, call 911 to have the police and emergency medical team come to the scene. If you don't report an accident in Tennessee, you could have your license suspended, so it's always better to err on the side of safety.

Interstate 40 pileup stops traffic for miles due to snow storm

What are the common symptoms and treatments of whiplash?

After a car accident, you may not know the full extent of your injuries until hours days or even weeks after the accident. For example, if you bruised your ribs or strained a muscle in your back due to the impact, the pain may increase as time goes on, along with the general effects on your health and ability to take care of day-to-day tasks. This can also happen with whiplash.

Oh deer! November puts drivers at risk of collisions

Deer are not an uncommon sight in Tennessee, thanks to its natural settings. Unfortunately, deer can pose a serious risk to drivers and put their lives at risk on the roads. Collisions caused by deer don't usually result in lawsuits, but if a driver is unsafe and traveling in a way that prevents him or her from stopping or avoiding a deer, he or she could cause a crash that someone else falls victim to.

Even advanced riders can benefit from motorcycle safety courses

Riding a motorcycle comes with a unique set of dangers. This is why safety should be your number one priority every time you climb onto your bike, and staying goes beyond wearing a helmet and riding leathers or staying within the bounds of the speed limit.
