When must motor vehicles yield to pedestrians in Tennessee?

People in Tennessee use many different modes of transportation to get to their destinations. Some are more convenient than others and some will get people to their destinations quicker than others. However, the most basic mode of transportation is using one's legs to walk to their destination. Even if it just for part of their journey many people walk to get to stores, get to work, go to parks, see family and friends and for other reasons.

Mental disorders that qualify one for Social Security disability

Not everyone in Tennessee may love their job all the time, but they are necessary for one to be able to pay their bills and meet their needs. So, whether they like or not they keep going to earn the paycheck. If one is sick or injured in some way, they may not be able to keep working though. If they are not able to earn an income, it may become very difficult for the person to meet their financial obligations. This is especially true if the problem is something that will continue for a long period of time or for the rest of the person's life.

A one-time mistake can lead to serious drunk driving charges

All it takes is one or two too many drinks to be too drunk to drive. Not only is it incredibly dangerous to drive while under the influence of alcohol, it can also lead to serious legal consequences as well, even if it is your first DUI. A one-time mistake can have a detrimental effect on your life, but you can fight against drunk driving charges, regardless of your criminal history.

When can parents modify a child support order?

Parents in Tennessee are required to provide for the financial needs of their children until they are at least 18 years old. These financial needs can be costly as well. Every child needs food, shelter and clothing as the basics, but they have other needs as well. Young children may require child care and parents may need to pay for the children's health insurance and other medical costs. Children also are involved in various activities that have fees and may require certain equipment.

Motorcyclist struck by multiple vehicles dies

Anytime people drive on the roads in Tennessee they take certain risks. This is not always because of their own actions though. The risk is that they cannot control the actions of the other drivers on the roads. If people make bad choices, others who may have been driving perfectly could end up in an accident. This is even more true for motorcyclists as they are harder to see. Also, if they are in an accident the outcome can be much worse as they are not equipped with the same safety devices as cars and trucks. Often times they are left with catastrophic injuries.
