GM recall could have an impact on Tennessee drivers

In February 2014, GM recalled 2.6 million cars that had faulty ignition switches. For one 25-year-old woman, it was enough for a judge to vacate her guilty plea on charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving. Although the plea was vacated, the women still spent three months in county jail and says that she has struggled to find a job after being released.

Delayed injury symptoms from a car accident

Tennessee residents who have been involved in a car accident might not always show symptoms of injury right away. Signs can actually appear over time, hours or even days after the incident. Even when some indications do appear, initial medical care usually focuses on alleviating pain through massages, chiropractic visits and even physical therapy. However, even after initial treatment, symptoms might continue or new ones might develop.

Safety and health risks for garbage collectors

People in Tennessee who work in the garbage collection industry face many health and safety hazards while on the job. By understanding the risks, workers may be better able to recognize hazardous situations and avoid getting hurt or becoming ill in accidents because of them.

Anti-fog coating helps to keep workers safe

Eye protection is an absolute necessity for many Tennessee workers in all fields of endeavor. Unfortunately, the exertion and changing climactic conditions faced while at work, whether on a work site or at a facility, can often cause goggles and other eye shields to fog. Although this may seem like a trivial occurrence, it has been linked to literally thousands of eye injuries every year.
