Tennessee Truck Wreck Lawyers
Decades of Experience Advocating for Accident Victims
Most commercial truck drivers are well-trained and follow the strict rules
and regulations expected of them. However, failure to exercise responsibility
and care when operating an 18-wheeler or other large truck can cause life-altering
consequences simply due to the vehicle’s size compared to that of
regular automobiles. Truck crashes can also occur with other commercial
trucks, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists.
Whether the truck driver was ignoring the rules of the road, was unfit
to drive, or was not following company protocol, when a crash occurs,
victims often suffer from catastrophic injuries and serious property damage.
Our Johnson City personal injury attorneys represent clients seeking compensation
to cover the costs of any physical and material damage from the accident.
We’re ready to do the same for you.
Determining Liability After an Accident
Trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that their drivers are
well-trained, competent, and follow all necessary safety guidelines. Failure
to do so can result in serious injuries or even death. In such cases,
our truck crash litigation lawyers are here to help. We use our experience,
legal resources, and knowledge to represent victims injured in a truck
accident through no fault of their own.
Any number of parties could be responsible for the trucking accident that
left you injured. An attorney can investigate your case to help determine
who should be held liable. Common liable parties include:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Owner of the truck or trailer
- Shipper or loader of the truck’s cargo
- Owner of the leasing company that lent the truck out
- Manufacturer of the truck or manufacturer of the trucking parts
Proving fault can be difficult, especially when you’re up against
a large trucking company. Insurance providers of these companies will
do everything in their power to avoid paying victims after an accident,
which is why you’ll need an experienced, proven lawyer fighting
on your behalf.
