Is possession of drug paraphernalia illegal in Tennessee?

While many American states have accepted the nonmedical use of marijuana, Tennessee remains steadfastly against recreational drug use. As such, many of the items linked to the use and possession of drugs are also illegal. This means that you could face arrest if law enforcement catches you with paraphernalia.

Product liability and what to do with the item that harmed you

Whether it is a defective drug, a faulty auto part or simply a dangerous household product, your first instinct after suffering injury is to dispose of the product. As product liability attorneys, we want you to know that this is a mistake and may have a negative effect on any legal solution you may wish to pursue.

No witness to your work place injury? What you should do

When a workplace accident occurs, it is up to the employee to prove that it was an on-the-job accident before they can qualify for workers compensation. This is typically done by building up a preponderance of evidence. This evidence will usually include documenting key factors relating to the accident and presenting witness testimony. However, what if there was no witness around to vouch for the accident? While it is more difficult to prove a workplace injury case without a witness, it can certainly be done. Here are a few things you should do following your injury that can greatly enhance your chances of getting the compensation you deserve.

What must victims prove in a personal injury claim?

Carelessness, negligence and reckless behaviors often lead to personal injury for innocent victims. Examples of negligent events that cause such injury include car accidents, medical malpractice, slips-and-falls and defective products. Unfortunately, even the most clear-cut cases of personal injury must be proven in a legal setting before victims or the families of victims can achieve success.
