Truck accidents happen all too often in eastern Tennessee — and for any number of reasons. At Meade Injury Law Group, we are committed to helping Tennesseans injured in any type of trucking accident. If you were seriously injured or sustained significant property damage, contact our firm for a free consultation. An experienced attorney can work aggressively to make sure you get the full compensation you are entitled to receive.

The following are a few common causes of trucking accidents:

  • Truckers who are speeding
  • Truckers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Truckers who have failed to receive proper training
  • Mechanically unsound trucks or trucks operating with malfunctioning equipment such as poor tires, broken lights or brakes.
  • Trailers that are overloaded

A truck driver who is driving recklessly may be responsible for causing an accident, but the driver’s company may also be liable. Drivers typically face tremendous pressure to get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible. The company may expect the driver to reach the destination in an unreasonable amount of time.

Trucking companies also may be negligent for failing to keep a commercial vehicle in proper running order. A trucker who sends or reads text messages behind the wheel is in violation of federal law which bans texting for truckers and bus drivers.

We have the experience you need to determine who is responsible for your trucking accident.
