Fight for compensation following a truck accident | Bart Durham Injury Law

Fight for compensation following a truck accident

In a recent blog post, we highlighted the story of a woman that was killed as she slept in her home. In the case, a truck driver lost control over a tractor trailer and crashed into the woman's house as it carried 40,000 pounds of pumpkins. While this case was somewhat sensational, fatal truck accidents occur nearly every day in Tennessee. Negligent truck drivers and truck companies, risk other people's lives as they travel through our state.

In order to try and prevent these types of accidents, federal safety regulations have been enacted. These regulations try to ensure that drivers follow common sense safety rules while behind the wheel -- including that they get enough rest and avoid distractions. These rules may help prevent some accidents, but they do little to help truck accident victims.

If you have suffered injuries in a truck accident, you need to understand your legal rights. Our firm has helped more than 4,000 clients following accidents. We know the steps to take, the evidence to gather and the procedures to follow to help get justice for Tennessee residents.

Under Tennessee laws, truck accident victims are entitled to compensation following an accident caused by a negligent truck driver. We can help you show that negligence played a role in causing your injuries by fully investigating every detail of the accident. This includes examining the trucking log and other circumstances case. We can help people receive compensation including money for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional damages.
