Train accidents at railroad crossings killed 200 last year

Most people don't anticipate being involved in an accident with a train. While the percentage of persons in Tennessee and nationally who do encounter train accidents may be small, over 200 people were killed nationwide at railroad crossings last year. Of course, hundreds of passengers on trains also die or suffer serious injury from train accidents nationwide each year.

Train derails, serious injuries feared from dangerous material

The general rule is that a defendant will be absolutely liable for damages and injuries caused when conducting a hazardous activity or handling hazardous chemicals. That could be the standard used against CSX railroad company. On July 3, thousands of people were evacuated from their Tennessee homes in Maryville, and dozens reported respiratory injuries when a train car carrying a hazardous material derailed and released at least some of its contents into the air. At least 87 persons were treated at the Blount Memorial Hospital, and 36 were admitted with possible serious injuries.

Tennessee boating accident could lead to wrongful death claim

When Tennessee residents hear of personal injury accidents, it is usually motor vehicle accidents. However, with summer well underway here in Tennessee, boating accidents may take the forefront of the news. In some of these cases, just like with car accidents, accidents out on the water can result in wrongful death.
