Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

How do you help children after a parent dies in a car accident?

When your spouse dies in a car accident in Tennessee, your entire family is emotionally affected by this event. This kind of incident can be especially traumatic for children and it is important to know how you can help them during this difficult time. 

Fiery head-on collision kills three

Every person in Tennessee knows that car accidents can and do happen. However, this is not what most people think of every time they get into a vehicle nor should they. Everyone deserves the ability to believe that all drivers will make wise choices and they will arrive at their intended destinations safely. When this does not happen, it is reasonable for people to want to seek answers to questions and some sort of compensation for their losses or injuries.

Why are fixed object collisions sometimes fatal?

When you think about the fatal car accidents that occur in Tennessee, you may immediately think of collisions with multiple vehicles. A single-vehicle collision can be deadly, though, if a car crashes into a tree or other fixed objects.

Drunk driver critically injures daughter and kills mother and son

When one hears about a DUI car accident, one of the first things that may run through their mind is if someone was hurt. It is not uncommon to learn innocent people have suffered serious injuries or died after being hit by drivers who are too intoxicated to be in the driver's seat. Most victims of drunk driving accidents had no clue that someone would change their lives in undesirable ways. 

Car crashes are common, but are some preventable?

Almost every driver has been there before: a recent wreck seen on the side of the road, blue and red lights flashing and a long line of drivers curious to know what happened. To be on this side of an accident is fortunate; countless Tennesseeans experience dangerous -- and even deadly -- accidents while on the road. Still, the curiosity of why wrecks happen in the first place plagues the minds of many. How do these tragic accidents occur, and can anything be done to prevent them? 

Car accidents: Safety tips to avoid collisions with wildlife

When most people in the Knoxville area think about car crashes, they immediately think about the incidents that involve other motorists. Very few of them realize that not all accidents are the direct cause of another person’s negligence. Sometimes, motor vehicle wrecks occur because of wildlife in the area. Each year, thousands of people are injured and more than 200 people die in motor vehicle accidents that involve deer and wildlife, states Geico.com. 

Drugged driver given another chance at probation

Tennessee residents often hear about how strict the state's laws on drunk or drugged driving are. However, at the same time they also hear about too many cases of an impaired driver seeming to get off without full consequences despite their reckless and negligent behavior.

The differences between car insurance and life insurance

Needless to say, the topic of fatal car crashes is one that most Tennesseans would rather avoid. When such a tragic event happens, many families are left with the overwhelming financial burden of covering expensive funeral costs. Much talk revolves around the question of whether life insurance covers a death that happens as a result of a car accident. While life insurance covers deaths in most cases, it is crucial to know the details in the case of a fatal crash.  

Factors that contribute to truck accident fatalities

When most people in the Knoxville area think about truck accidents, they think of the kind that involves other motor vehicles. Many commercial vehicle collisions involve pedestrians. People who are walking down or across the streets become unsuspecting victims of negligent commercial vehicle operators. According to American Trucker, large commercial vehicles cause more than 140,000 injuries on the roads each year. 

More people dying on U.S. roads

Too many Tennessee residents may rightly be exhausted by the seemingly endless slew of reports detailing motor vehicle accidents in which people are killed. It only takes a split second for one person's thoughtless and negligent choice to lead to deadly results. Sadly, this trend does not show many signs of abating quite yet.
