Most Tennessee residents don't worry about getting injured in the course of their daily tasks at work. However, our readers probably know that the reality is that many workers do, in fact, suffer injuries throughout the state each year. Workers in the construction industry are hard hit, as are others in "manual labor" types of jobs. But, they aren't alone. Many other workers can suffer repetitive stress injuries or might be exposed to toxins that make them ill.
There are a lot of winding roads in Tennessee's rural areas, but there are plenty of city streets as well. What do all of these roads have in common? Heavy-haul trucks use them to deliver goods throughout the state and the country as a whole. While most of the drivers of these "big rigs" are well-trained and are good at their jobs, there are, unfortunately, some who, either through negligence or recklessness, place the lives of other drivers at risk.
