When you enter a store or other public business, the owner has a legal responsibility to ensure the premises are in a reasonably safe condition.

Causation is critical to establishing a workers’ compensation claim in Tennessee. In other words, you cannot receive benefits from your employer unless you can prove that your injury is directly related to your employment.

Can an Insurance Company Force Me to Litigate in Federal Court?

Part of the legal fallout from a car accident is dealing with insurance companies.

Commercial trucking accidents present a unique set of legal challenges for victims. These trucks are subject to a complex web of federal and state regulations.
