Semi-trucks and tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, so when they’re involved in accidents with passenger vehicles, the results can be devastating.

Both business owners and homeowners have a responsibility to make their properties safe for customers, guests, and even passersby.

Fair Labor Standards Act Practice
The federal government requires that employers treat their employees to acceptable working conditions and payment standards. However, some employers try to cheat the system by providing subpar or even dangerous work conditions and misclassifying employees as salaried to avoid paying overtime. Don’t let your employer get away with taking advantage of you—contact us today.
Injuries to Children
Children are among the most vulnerable people during accidents. Because their bodies are still growing and haven’t matured, they are more prone to suffering serious injuries that can have lifelong impacts, such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and burn injuries. Our legal team stands up for the rights of children who were hurt due to other people’s negligence.
Many Tennesseans purchase disability insurance to provide them with a replacement income if they get injured and can no longer work.

You trust your doctor to always do what’s right for your health. Unfortunately, doctors make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes are due to negligence and carelessness.

Then, we’ll pursue maximum compensation for you.

The attorneys at our firm know how to identify signs of neglect and abuse in nursing home patients, and we know how to file successful claims against nursing homes.
