Have You Been in a Truck Accident Involving a Semi, Tractor-Trailer, or Company Truck in Tennessee?

A large truck accident can have a horrific impact on your health, life, and overall well-being. These powerful machines dwarf others on the road. They can devastate families with a quick and careless mistake, leading to severe injuries, a lifetime of disability, or even fatalities for occupants of smaller passenger and commercial vehicles. The contributing causes of these accidents are not always immediately apparent. If you or a loved one have experienced the misfortune of such an event, speak with an experienced truck accident attorney right away to assess your situation and determine your strategic next steps.

It’s common for insurance companies to offer a low settlement that may not sufficiently cover your expenses, let alone deal with the long-term impact of a truck accident. At Tennessee Injury Attorneys, we seek adequate compensation for you now and in the future while preventing insurance companies from successfully offering you a low settlement.

Our team of legal professionals will investigate the accident scene, gather all necessary evidence to support your claim and calculate your total losses to negotiate a fair and appropriate settlement. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to review the unique details of your case.

Causes of Truck Accidents in Tennessee

A variety of factors can cause accidents involving large trucks in Tennessee:

  • driver fatigue
  • intoxicated driving
  • Improperly-loaded cargo
  • distracted driving
  • speeding or other reckless driving
  • motorists driving in the truck’s blind spots
  • tire blowout
  • engine failure
  • other equipment malfunction
  • road construction
  • other drivers’ errors
  • poor weather
  • poor road conditions
  • failure to complete required safety inspections

Liability for truck accidents can be complex, potentially falling on several individuals or entities, including:

  • the truck driver
  • the loading company
  • the truck’s manufacturer
  • a government agency
  • other drivers involved

Our team can help you determine the responsible parties and ensure you receive fair and appropriate compensation. Call us today to schedule your free consultation.

Types of Truck Accidents in Tennessee

There are various types of truck accidents, some more dangerous than others. Jackknife and rollover accidents can be deadly, and tire blowouts commonly cause truck accidents. An underride accident can be fatal, occurring when vehicles become wedged under a truck.

Wide turns, brake failure, front and rear collisions, T-Bone crashes, and lost loads can all lead to accidents. Blind spot collisions happen frequently; driving too close to a truck when passing through a blind spot increases the likelihood of these accidents.

Drivers should give trucks plenty of room, avoid their blind spots, and take extra care when encountering trucks in heavy traffic, poor road conditions, or bad weather. If you took these precautions during the events leading to your truck accident, these details might favor you from a comparative negligence perspective. Discuss your unique truck accident with an experienced Nashville or Memphis truck accident lawyer.

Common Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents can lead to a range of injuries, including broken bones, seatbelt and airbag injuries, and a host of catastrophic injuries such as organ damage, various other internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), concussions, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, and herniated discs. Many truck accidents involve extensive recovery time and related expenses, in addition to pain, suffering, frustration, and reduced enjoyment of life. Truck accidents lead to fatalities in many unfortunate cases involving wrongful death.

At Tennessee Injury Attorneys, we seek appropriate compensation in response to your injuries so you can cover lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering caused by the accident. Timing is essential, as the insurance companies and the statute of limitations will factor into your case. We are here to guide you. Promptly schedule a complimentary consultation with our experienced truck accident attorneys to determine your next steps.

What To Expect When Navigating Your Tennessee Truck Accident Case

Understand from the outset that a system exists to limit your ability to recover compensation after a truck accident. You will need guidance from an experienced truck accident attorney to navigate the situation.

The insurance company representing the truck driver will immediately investigate the accident, with the goal of absolving the truck driver of any fault. However, if that is not possible, they may present you with a small settlement offer. The insurance company’s motive is to settle claims for as little as possible to avoid expending a vast sum of money.

Unfortunately, victims who agree to accept the offer from the truck driver’s insurance and therefore forfeit the opportunity to pursue additional compensation later may find themselves with substantial future expenses they cannot cover. Therefore, seeking the guidance of an experienced truck accident attorney before accepting a settlement or making any statements to the insurance company is vital.

Truck drivers and their employers are subject to regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Tennessee Highway Patrol Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division. Your attorney will assess whether they violated any regulations through an investigation. Rules regarding documentation, inspections, procedures for securing shipped materials, equipment standards, or a variety of specific actions or inactions on the part of various parties may factor into your case.

At Tennessee Injury Attorneys, we can ascertain the appropriate value of your case and handle all communications with the insurance companies so you can focus on your physical recovery and return to your life.
