What options do recovering victims have after trucking accidents?

A terrible accident recently occurred in Tennessee. The collision involved several vehicles. Trucking accidents often have devastating results; this one led to two people becoming trapped inside their cars.

The incident occurred on Interstate 55. Memphis authorities say that a tractor-trailer that was involved in the crash jackknifed. Three people were injured, one of whom was reportedly in critical condition. The other two vehicle occupants who suffered injury were also take to a nearby medical facility for treatment; however, neither of them was listed in serious condition.

The northbound lane of the road was completely shut down for about two hours after the accident. This is not uncommon following situations like this because there's often debris and other wreckage obstructing the road. To be safe, roads are often closed to traffic until clean-up crews have a chance to clear the area and investigators have done their work at the accident scene.

There have been many trucking accidents in Tennessee where the tractor-trailer drivers were deemed at fault. In such circumstances, recovering victims often file injury claims in civil court to seek monetary recovery for their losses. This is often a complicated process, however, and is typically best addressed alongside experienced guidance from a personal injury attorney. An attorney can gather evidence and enlist third party testimony where appropriate to help convince the court that another party's negligence was responsible for the accident and injuries that occurred. Aggressive litigation may lead to compensation awarded in successful claims that can alleviate many financial burdens unduly placed upon injured accident victims and their families.
