Johnson City Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyers
Protecting the Rights of Accident Victims in East Tennessee
When it comes to serious accidents on the road, tractor trailer accidents stand in a class of their own. With fully loaded trucks often weighing more than 30 times more than passenger vehicles, truck crashes usually lead to serious injuries, even at low speeds. If you or a loved one was harmed in an accident with a tractor trailer such as an 18-wheeler or big rig, Meade Law Group can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
Regulations require commercial truck drivers to get appropriate rest between long stretches on the road. Despite these requirements, truckers sometimes bend the rules to meet deadlines—sometimes under pressure from their bosses. While there are many different types of truck accidents, driver fatigue may be a factor.
Decades of Experience on Your Side
A personal injury lawyer can help to establish liability in the truck accident, whether that is on the part of the driver or on their employing company for allowing the driver to ignore regulations. Unlike a car accident or motorcycle accident, commercial truck accidents may involve several insurance companies and different types of coverage.
We help our clients with accident issues such as:
- Causes of truck wrecks
- Overloaded trailer accidents
- Rollover truck accidents
- Truck driver and trucking company liability
- Truck wrecks and insurance
Highway Truck Accidents in Tennessee
Trucks from all over the United States travel through Tennessee to deliver their cargo. Drivers are under pressure to reach a certain destination in the least possible time. To do this, they may exceed the speed limit, fail to slow in time when highway traffic has slowed down or stopped, or take drugs to stay awake for longer periods.
Trucking accidents often lead to extensive property loss and injury, including:
- Wrongful death
- Loss of limb
- Loss of vision
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury or paralysis
