Behind the big shoulder pads, victories and tackles of the professional football players in the NFL are real stories. They have real families, homes. Some have real tragedy in their lives. This week, Vikings running back Matt Asiata lost his father in a fatal motor vehicle accident.
A recent Tennessean piece serves as a warning that drivers in the state might not be doing much to help improve the safety on Tennessee roads. In recent years, Tennessee has been ranked pretty high on the list of states where the most traffic fatalities occur. And it looks like 2013 will round out to be no traffic safety improvement.
Though the boating accident we are to discuss in this post took place out-of-state, it is still worthwhile to cover due to its layers of complexity regarding who could possibly be held accountable following a boat accident. A father who lost his child to an incident this summer is suing various parties for what he claims was negligence after a July Fourth celebration.
All motor vehicle accidents are scary. When a collision involves a tractor-trailer on one side of it, however, the devastation caused in the incident can be immeasurable.
