Nashville Truck Accident Lawyers

Each year, tractor-trailers cover millions of miles on American roads. And each year, they are involved in thousands of motor vehicle accidents.

Truck drivers are subject to state and federal laws regulating the number of hours they are permitted to drive without rest. They are required to log their hours and keep maintenance records for their truck. Even with these regulations, accidents happen.

Common causes of truck accidents are—

  • Excessive speeding
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Driver fatigue/falling asleep at the wheel
  • Safety violations
  • Improperly maintained trucks
  • Lack of a rear guard to prevent under-riding
  • Load shift/failure to properly secure the load
  • Tire blowouts
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Improperly pulled over on side of road
  • Dangerous driving

Have you been injured or lost a loved one in a trucking accident?

When a truck weighing approximately 80,000 pounds collides with the average passenger vehicle, the results are rarely good for the occupants of the car. These accidents can lead to serious injury or even death. Injuries typically associated with commercial trucking accidents include—

  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Disfigurement

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a trucking accident—or if a loved one has died due to a truck crash—you may be entitled to compensation. In Tennessee, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. Contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your truck accident is advised, as crucial evidence proving the trucker or trucking company’s negligence may otherwise be destroyed.

Nashville, TN Trucking Accident Defense

Drivers of commercial trucks such as semis, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers are required to maintain more extensive insurance policies than drivers operating passenger vehicles. However, insurance companies are not eager to pay that money to trucking accident victims. A skilled personal injury lawyer can help ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

The Nashville Truck Accident Lawyers at Parker & Crofford go toe-to-toe with insurance companies, trucking company representatives, and opposing counsel. They are not intimidated by aggressive tactics and have extensive experience building strong cases and obtaining damage awards from trucking companies or their insurance companies through settlements or at trial.
