How to stay safe while on the roads

You are a cautious driver by nature and go above and beyond to pay attention to the roads in the Knoxville area. But being a safe driver is not the only way to protect yourself and passengers from car accidents. With the roads being more congested than usual, it is important for you to stay on guard against reckless and drunk motorists. 

How to protect children from car accidents

While most people do not want to think about experiencing a car accident at some point, it is crucial to prepare if children are in the car.

1 in 5 commercial trucks failed during inspection blitz

A failed inspection can result in serious consequences that can include a citation or removal of the vehicle from the roads with an out-of-service designation.

SSD and wait times: Are they getting any better?

Social Security disability benefits are available for qualifying applicants who were injured or suffer an illness that results in the inability to work. These benefits are designed to help ensure that recipients can meet their financial obligations. Once approved, the recipient receives money to help cover basic costs, like rent, groceries and the like. Unfortunately, the amount of time it takes for an application to receive approval can make paying for even the most basic needs very difficult.

Do monitoring systems reduce the risk of trucking accidents?

It is no surprise that large trucks can cause catastrophic accidents. The most basic laws of physics teach us that the larger a vehicle is the more mass it has. The more mass it has, the more difficult it is to stop. When a large truck crashes into a smaller passenger vehicle, those within the smaller passenger vehicle experience a huge amount of force — often resulting in serious injuries.
