All Knoxville residents must follow the rules of the road when they are driving. For most, this means obeying the posted speed limit, stopping and yielding where required and not texting while driving, among other requirements. Some individuals are required to follow more rules, however, depending on the vehicle they are operating.
Changes are inevitable in the lives of Knoxville residents. While some change is good, however, other changes can be very negative and can have a drastic impact on the lives of Tennessee residents and their families.
Communities in Tennessee work best when everyone does their part. Individuals have personal responsibility for their actions, and when they fail to live up to that responsibility, they should be held accountable by others. This is particularly true when a person's actions, or failure to act, causes injury to another person, as with the case of premises liability.
Even the slightest change of circumstances can make a big difference when it comes to the eyes of the law. For instance, with motor vehicle accidents, it may initially seem as though all accidents are the same or similar. Yet, differences in the drivers and vehicles involved, among other things, can play a huge role in a later lawsuit brought by those injured in the accident against the negligent driver.
Many Tennessee residents take great care to ensure the safety of themselves and others on the road. Unfortunately, not all drivers act the same way, as certain individuals make bad decisions that can place others at risk.
