According to the Associated Press, Tennessee officials reported an increase in fatal car accidents this year in Cumberland County, Tennessee.Â The Tennessee Department of Transportation (â€śTDOTâ€ť) reported 12 fatal car crashes in Cumberland County so far in 2011, up from one in 2010.Â Half of these accidents have occurred on Interstate 40.Â TDOT and local law enforcement agencies will team up to set up roadblocks on major roads and Interstate 40, looking for impaired drivers, speeders, and persons not wearing seat belts.
Causes of fatal car accidents include speeding, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.Â When a driver travels over the speed limit, he may lose control of his vehicle and cause an accident.Â If a driver travels over 100 miles per hour, the probability of a car wreck skyrockets.Â By setting up roadblocks, TDOT hopes to catch speeding drivers or encourage drivers not to speed for fear of getting caught.Â In addition, TDOT hopes the roadblocks will reduce the number of drunk drivers on Tennessee streets.

According to WSMV Nashville, Interstate 65 in Maury County, Tennessee, was temporarily shut down on June 24, 2011, after a car wreck caused by a drunk driver.Â Highway patrol officials reported a 21-year-old man, driving under the influence of alcohol, clipped the side of a semi-truck, crossed the median of a local street, and crashed head-on into a pickup truck.Â Fortunately, the passengers of the pickup truck were not injured.Â The 21-year-old driver will be charged with driving under the influence (â€śDUIâ€ť).
Drunk driving is an issue that receives frequent attention in Tennessee.Â Studies prove a driver is more likely to cause a car accident if he is under the influence of alcohol.

According to the National Safety Council, June 12-18, 2011, was Teen Driver Safety Week.Â The week was part of National Safety Month, held each June to â€śeducate and encourage safe behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths.Â In the United States, car accidents kill more teenagers each year than homicide, suicide, and unintentional drug overdose combined.Â To encourage safe teen driving, the National Safety Council offered a safety guide and two online classes to parents.Â The safety guide gave parents advice on how to prepare their teenagers for independent driving, including a written parent-teen driving agreement that defines driving rules and restrictions.Â One of the online classes taught parents how to reinforce basic driving and decision-making skills.Â The second online class taught parents how to work with their teenagers to encourage safe driving, such as having a conversation about the causes of motor vehicle accidents.
The risk of a teenager being involved in a car accident is at its highest point during his or her first year of driving.Â But, like anything else, teenagers become better drivers by learning safety precautions, practicing driving with their parents, and gradually being exposed to higher-risk situations.Â The Tennessee auto accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť) support Teen Driver Safety Week and encourage all parents and teens to work together to keep our roads and highways as safe as possible.Â When a teenager causes a car accident, he can seriously injure himself in addition to others.Â If you have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver, NST Law can help fight for you to recover damages to compensate you for lost wages, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, medical bills, and permanent injuries.Â To prove these damages, your NST lawyer can utilize the services of industry experts.Â For example, medical experts can accurately document past medical bills and forecast future medical expenses.Â In addition, vocational economists can look at a personâ€™s occupation, years of experience, skills, and work environment to compute future lost wages and diminished earning potential.Â Finally, psychologists can help determine to what extent a victim suffered emotionally and mentally as a result of being involved in the car accident.Â If your case goes to trial, your NST lawyer can arrange for experts to testify to the extent of your injuries and suffering.Â To speak to a Memphis auto accident attorney at NST Law, call 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004.

According to the National Transportation and Safety Board (â€śNSTBâ€ť), distracted driving is a problem that needs to be addressed in the United States and other nations.Â Distracted driving includes talking on the phone, surfing the Internet, and texting while operating a motor vehicle. One NSTB member called distracted driving the â€śnew DUI.â€ťÂ This member said society must elevate distracted driving to a taboo such as drinking and driving, a change that could take a generation or two.
Sometimes, when people are driving, they feel it will only take a second to answer a phone call, send a text message, or look up information on their mobile browser.Â While the amount of time spent on a cell phone may be short, the driver may become distracted at a crucial time.Â The car in front of him may slow down.Â A pedestrian may cross the street.Â A car may turn in front of his car.Â If a driver is not paying attention to the road when a similar situation arises, an accident is more likely to occur.Â If you are injured in a car wreck caused by a distracted driver, call the Memphis personal injury law firm Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť) at 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004.Â On certain Memphis streets, such as Poplar Avenue, Germantown Road, and Union Avenue, drivers need to be especially careful due to the high number of cars on the road.Â The Memphis auto accident attorneys at NST Law have over twenty years experience handling tragic car wreck cases that occur throughout Shelby County, and with knowledge of the latest Tennessee driving and insurance laws, you can trust that we have what it takes to fight for you.

According to the Claiborne Progress, a tractor-trailer turned on its side due to an oversized load near Springdale, Tennessee, on June 20, 2011.Â When the tractor-trailer was rounding a curve on Highway 35 East, its load shifted, causing the vehicle to turn over on its side.Â The trailer took out over 200 feet of guardrail on the highway before it finally came to a stop.Â The Claiborne County Sherriffâ€™s Office, Tennessee Highway Patrol, Claiborne County EMS, and Springdale Volunteer Fire Department responded to the accident to tow the tractor-trailer and clean up the road.Â Fortunately, the driver of the tractor-trailer only suffered minor scratches on his arm.

According to the New York Times, as a nursing homeâ€™s profit increases, the overall welfare of its patients tends to decrease. A current trend in Tennessee and across the country is for large private equity firms and investment companies to purchase nursing home chains as investments. In order to maximize their investments, owners become concerned about a nursing homeâ€™s financials and bottom line. One way these firms maximize profit is by reducing costs. Unfortunately, some nursing homes cut staff, shrink the budget for supplies, and fail to fix structural problems with their facilities. Sometimes, nursing homes even cut staff to levels below the legal limit. Regulators maintain that patients in these types of nursing homes suffer.The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services reported that at nursing homes owned by private investment companies, residents generally experience more depression, loss of mobility, and loss of ability to bathe and clothe compared to residents of other homes. In addition, nursing homes owned by investment firms typically score lower than average in categories used to rate the quality of nursing homes. For example, data from a study conducted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services indicates the number of residents per registered nurse is 7 residents higher in investor-owned homes. In addition, instances of quality of care deficiencies, such as moldy food and mixed up medications, were 19 percent higher in investor-owned homes. Corporate owners concerned about financials end up telling the experienced nursing home administrators and managers how to run the home.
If the nursing home of your loved one operates below industry standards, call the Memphis nursing home neglect attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz at 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004.
