East Nashville Truck Accident Attorneys

Our beloved East Nashville is a vibrant neighborhood full of history. It’s a hub of arts, award-winning restaurants and great music. Like the whole of Central Tennessee, it has also become a hub for the trucking industry. Hundreds of commercial rigs take the I-40, 24, and 65 daily.

More trucks passing through means more accidents. Tennessee has seen a 20% increase in tractor-trailer crashes over the past 20 years.

Semi-trucks, tractor trailers, and 18 wheelers are bigger and heavier than anything else on the road. In an collision, being in the car is far more dangerous as trucks can cause devastating damages to you and to your loved ones.

If you’ve been injured because of a truck driver’s negligence, it may take you years – sometimes a lifetime – to heal. You may be unable to work, facing considerable medical bills. You may be left with a permanent disability, depression, PTSD, broken relationships, etc.

As Tennessee laws regarding trucking industry are specific, you need help. That’s where we come in: to maximize your compensation, to make it right.

Types of Truck Accident Injuries

If you were involved in a truck crash, you need immediate medical attention.

Some injuries like organ damage, internal bleeding, brain and spine injuries may not be obvious right away. Once you’ve told your doctors you were part of a truck accident, they’ll know to run the appropriate tests.

Other injuries are visible, such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Burns and lacerations
  • Soft tissue injuries

Whether apparent or not, a medical professional must document your injuries as soon as possible. It’s imperative to pursue your claim for compensations.

What are the leading causes of truck crashes ?

  • Fatigue
  • Distracted driving and texting
  • Reckless driving (speeding, DUI, DWI)
  • Inadequate training and inexperience
  • Trucking company or truck broker negligence

The second cause of accidents lie in trucks’ structural hazards:

  • Dangerous cargo & big load size
  • Large blind spots & wide turns
  • Bad breaking ability
  • Mechanical failure

Unfortunately, other causes like bad weather, poor road conditions and construction zones are out of anyone’s control and they may combine with the previous ones.

You Need a Qualified Truck Attorney

Trucking Companies and Insurance Firms are against You

It’s no secret : insurance and trucking companies don’t want to pay for your damages. In fact, they’ll do everything to avoid it.

They’ll use tactics to pay little to no compensation for your injuries like:

  • Leasing trucks instead of buying them to deny ownership and avoid liability.
  • Hiring a lawyer to argue against your claim. 

You’re not fighting on a level playing field. That’s why you need an experienced truck accident attorney in your corner to help you fight back.

Tennessee Laws and Truck Accident Cases are Complex

Three reasons why winning your case in East Nashville takes experience, skills, and resources:

  1. Tennessee is a ‘fault state’: you have to prove the truck driver was responsible for more than 50% of your car accident.
  2. Regulations of the trucking industry are specific.
  3. Truck accident cases tend to be much more complicated and severe than regular crashes, often provoking serious injuries or even death. Many parties are usually involved such as the driver, the truck company and the truck manufacturer.

For those reasons, your case will require an in depth investigation to establish liability.

This means:

  • Collection and review of evidence
  • Obtention of witness statements
  • Hire of legal professionals (expert witness, accident reconstructionist)
