A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. As a general matter, workers' comp is meant to cover such accidents. That does not mean someone would still not try to sue. It could be difficult to give a quick yes or no answer to your question based on the...Read more »

She is also trying to keep me out of the house. She says I violated the "no drugs" rule but I didn't and she has NO proof. She found weed in my MOMs room and is trying to use that to kick us both out. Where would I find a no fee lawyer with whom I could proceed to file suit with?

After moving and less than a week before my start date, I inquired about my pending background check. then the company started moving my start date back (twice). Once the... Read more »
Tennessee is an at-will employment state - but if you have an offer letter where the company agreed to pay for certain items and you were told to move as part of this you may be entitled to recover for the relocation expenses.
The utility may be- but there has to be proof the utility knew or should have known the line was down and for a sufficient time that the utility could respond. If the line went down as the result of storm- and had just fallen the utility generally wouldn't be liable.

If you haven't already, just concentrate on working out reasonable terms for getting your car out of there for now. Each day it sits there, it continues accruing storage fees. You could sit down with a...Read more »
When she attempted to enter the room she was told Covid-19 policies prevented her from accompanying my daughter, this was after my wife had paid the fee. My wife was told that there would be only females in the exam room. My obvious question would be, is this legal? Of note, my daughter suffers... Read more »
This is a different world we live in for now. Medical Providers are trying to find a way to provide a relatively covid safe treating environment.

He may be being neglected and or abused and seems to be being help captive by his wife. Who herself has never shown the mental or physical capacity to care for another individual let alone one who is not ambulatory or verbal.
I'm sorry for your difficult situation. Your post remains open for a month and you may be better off simply reaching out to Tennessee attorneys here (Find-a-Lawyer) or searching independently on your own. This isn't really a lawyer referral service - it's only a Q & A Board. Good luck

Here, they may be liable for your injuries which may be severe if you are required to have surgery and lose time...Read more »

The value will have to be shown, which will probably be questioned. Your standing will be important....Read more »
