Tennessee auto fatalities down

Over the past two years Traffic fatalities have gone down in Tennessee, according to statistics. Two new laws are getting some credit in reducing the fatalities. One is the new lower minimum blood-alcohol content of 0.08 percent for drunken drivers and the second is a law which allows police officers to pull over motorists who aren’t wearing seatbelts.

It is amazing the impact these two factors have on fatality accidents. It is also interesting how simple it is to put on a seatbelt but so many of us forget. In fact, after dropping my son off at school last week a policemen pulled me over because I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt. I felt so dumb thinking about all of the devastating accident cases my office has handled where peoples injuries were exacerbated because that did not use their seatbelt. So I encourage all of you to take those extra few seconds to buckle up.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
