Nashville Truck Accident Lawyer
Our Truck Accident Lawyers have significant experience with commercial trucking litigation and truck injury claims in Nashville and surrounding areas of Tennessee. Specifically, we represent clients who have sustained catastrophic injury or were killed in auto collisions with commercial trucks.
Because of the sheer size of tractor-trailers, and the hazardous materials they sometimes carry, these collisions can be much more severe than collisions between passenger cars. Additionally, commercial trucks can pose substantial danger to other drivers because of factors including equipment failure, negligent maintenance, distracted driving, or a driver that’s operating the vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If you’ve been injured in a collision with a commercial truck, we will work with law enforcement, government agencies governing transportation, and medical experts to nail down the details of what happened and who should be liable.
Our law firm has won significant verdicts for truck accident victims injured or unfortunately killed in trucking collisions in Nashville.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Due to their large size, trucks can cause significant damage when involved in an accident with a smaller vehicle. When a truck accident occurs, determining the cause and proving fault is crucial for insurance and legal cases.
The two most common causes of truck accidents in Tennessee are:
- Driver Error – speeding, fatigue, distracted driving, impaired driving
- Equipment Failure – brake failure, tire blowouts, steering or suspension issues
