Trucking accidents: Semi rolls into home, kills man on porch

A 46-year-old man has died during a recent accident in which a tractor-trailer rolled into the front of a residence in Tennessee. Trucking accidents can be devastating under any circumstances, but most individuals might not feel the need to fear the possibility of becoming involved in a similar incident while resting in the safety of their homes. Unfortunately, even a house may stand little chance of holding its own should a tractor-trailer veer off course.

The accident reportedly took place on a recent Thursday afternoon as the man was sitting on the porch at his home. According to authorities, a nearby construction crew was loading equipment onto a tractor-trailer just up the street from the home. For unknown reasons, the vehicle suddenly began to roll directly toward the home.

The truck proceeded to roll straight into the front of the man's home, unfortunately killing him in the process. The man's wife and two of his grandchildren were also inside the home at the time, but they were not injured in the incident. Law enforcement agents have initiated an investigation into the fatal crash, likely to determine what might have caused it to occur.

Those who lose a loved one in similar trucking accidents may wish to pursue accountability through the civil justice system, but with no one behind the wheel at the time, they might be uncertain how best to proceed. Fortunately, there are attorneys that can provide a person in Tennessee with much-needed guidance on the available options for legal recourse. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in pursuing the full amount of compensation entitled through a claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
