Recovering losses after trucking accidents in Tennessee

If you've ever been driving on a Tennessee highway when a tractor-trailer comes barreling alongside you, you understand how frightful such situations can be. When 40 tons of steel is riding your bumper or cutting you off in your lane, the lives of everyone nearby are greatly at risk, including yours. Trucking accidents happen every day throughout the nation, many resulting in catastrophic injuries and death.

There are traffic regulations and laws geared specifically toward commercial trucks and their drivers. Laws and regulations control what types of loads they may haul and how heavy such loads can be. Moreover, drunk driving laws are more stringent for those operating these massive pieces of machinery. When a person survives injury in a collision with a tractor-trailer (which is not all that often), the road to recovery is typically long and arduous.

In addition to the physical challenges involved in recovery, many truck accident victims face undue financial strain as well when medical bills and other expenses related to their accidents start rolling in. A recovering victim may be completely unprepared to meet such debt. This is one of many reasons the law allows anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver's negligence to pursue a personal injury claim for damages in civil court.

Sometimes, criminal charges are filed against drivers following trucking accidents in Tennessee. If a civil claim is also filed, evidence of the criminal trial may help substantiate the civil claim. Pete Olson Law has successfully assisted many accident victims to obtain settlements and verdicts in the aftermaths of commercial truck collisions. Generally speaking, the sooner you obtain experienced guidance in such situations, the better.
