With the extensive system of highways that run throughout Tennessee, encountering large commercial trucks is a common occurrence for nearly all drivers. 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks dwarf other passenger vehicles on the road, and can be extremely dangerous and deadly when involved in an accident. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are an all-too-common occurrence, and thousands of them happen across the country every year.
Many times accidents involving commercial trucks are not simply a random occurrence that were bound to happen. The fact of the matter is that drivers are often under strict deadlines and may sacrifice safety in order to stay ahead of schedule. When this happens, they may be fatigued, using illegal or prescription drugs, and not fully focused. If the result is a major accident causing serious injuries to other drivers on the road, the driver and their company should be held fully responsible.

Not only is trucking accident law complex and difficult to navigate without an experienced legal team at your side, but drivers and companies are represented by big insurance providers and powerful legal teams. Their goal is to minimize or deny your claim, even if you were not at all responsible for the accident.
