As Tennessee eases into the new normal, it’s important to approach all activities with extra caution. Many people will be unaccustomed to going out and some venues may be unprepared for the sudden influx of visitors. Car accidents can happen with more drivers on the road, while slip-and-fall injuries may occur if a business owner doesn’t maintain their facility properly.
