Unfortunately, boating accidents are an all-too-common occurrence that often results in property damage, serious injuries, and death. According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (“TWRA”) 2017 Tennessee Boating Incident Report, the leading type of boating incident was collision with vessel.

The brain is undoubtedly the most complex organ in the human body, so much so that modern medical science still cannot fully explain how the brain works. Accordingly, when an individual suffers a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”), there are often serious and life-changing conditions that can require extensive surgery and medical treatment and can lead to significant, permanent impairments, such as loss of memory, speech, motor function, and even death. Because of the seriousness and significance, and often permanence, of traumatic brain injuries, victims are often able make significant recoveries in subsequent civil suits.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident by such a negligent, careless, or inattentive driver, the Clarksville personal injury attorneys of Batson Nolan PLC, want to help you recover the full amount of the damages you have suffered and deserve to be paid.
Dog bites pose a frequent and serious health concern in today’s society and are the basis for a significant number of civil suits every year. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Center for Disease Control, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, half of which are usually children, and 800,000 of which are serious enough to require medical attention. In 2017 dog bites accounted for one-third of all homeowners’ liability insurance claims, costing in excess of $700 million with an average payout in excess of $35,000.
Nursing home abuse has and continues to be a growing problem in the United States, due in large part to the Baby Boomer generation and the ever-increasing percentage of the population that they make up. The 2010 census report found that roughly 13 percent of the population was older than 65 years old, a figure that is expected to rise as high as 20 percent by the year 2050.
Every day, people are injured by unreasonably dangerous products. Injured consumers can file a products liability claim for the following types of defects:
- Design defects – A design defect occurs when there is something inherently dangerous about a product. Examples of design defects include vehicles that are more likely to roll over and car seats that become detached during accidents.
- Manufacturing defects – A manufacturing defect is a defect that is only present with a limited batch of products, usually because of a problem on a production line or problem components. Manufacturing defects include hot water heaters that scald due to a defective thermostat and heating pads that cause burns due to problem wiring.
- Warning defects – These defects occur because consumers aren’t aware of the dangers of the product due to insufficient instructions or marketing materials, such as not properly warning consumers that products are flammable or that medicines may have bad side effects with others.
Tennessee property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe so that customers or other visitors are not injured.

Tennessee law allows surviving family members to bring forth a lawsuit against a negligent defendant who caused another’s death due to a “wrongful act, fault, or omission.”
Only certain family members can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, starting with the people most closely related to the victim such as the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, or executor.
The surviving family may be able to receive compensation for damages such as:
- Medical expenses for treatment of the injuries that ultimately resulted in death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of earning capacity between the time of the accident and death
- Loss of enjoyment of life between the date of the injury and death
- Pain and suffering of the decedent
- Loss of consortium and companionship
If the death was caused by reckless or intentional behavior, the family may be able to recover punitive damages. These are special damages that are meant to punish the wrongdoer and prevent similar behavior in the future.
