80,000 pounds and a lifetime of regret
80,000 pounds…That’s the weight of a fully loaded semi-truck or “big-rig.” Wrecks involving trucks have the power to change lives instantly. Tennessee semi-truck injuries are all too common for those who share these busy highways and curvy mountain roads. That’s why truck wrecks on the busy interstates of I-40 or I-75 are all too common, and the aftermath of fully-loaded trucks barreling down the curves of I-81 are often tragic.
The Semi-Truck Insurance Claims Process can be intimidating and frustrating. Trucking companies have law firms and insurance companies ready to defend truckers involved in accidents. And, you will need evidence that may involve many factors that are unique to truck accidents. The truck crash records only have to be kept for a certain time. Therefore, if you or someone you love has been injured in a semi-truck accident, you need to get legal representation from a Tennessee Personal Injury attorney as soon as possible.
Only a lawyer with experience in truck accidents can help you find the crucial facts that matter in time. The factors that may make a difference in your truck wreck case include:
- Driver Fatigue
- Worn or Under Inflated Tires
- Overloaded Cargo
- Tight Delivery Timelines
- Substance Abuse
- Ignoring Traffic Laws
- Texting or Cell Phone Usage
These are just a few examples. All of these facts can be lost quickly, and the results can be tragic and lead to a lifetime of regret. Please, call us before it’s too late. G.
