Were you or someone you loved involved in a commercial truck accident or an accident with a tractor-trailer? If so, you should seek help from an experienced commercial truck accident attorney. Because of the weight and size of tractor-trailers and their cargo, semi-truck crashes often leave victims seriously injured. The person injured in the commercial truck accident is not always the sole victim. Commercial truck/tractor-trailer accidents can have lasting effects on entire families.
When vehicles collide with semi-trucks, the consequences can be devastating. Oftentimes, these accidents result in serious injuries that cause severe strain on families. Long-term care for the victim can be life-altering for the individual and families. Loved ones of the victim can also be negatively impacted by financial burdens. If the person cannot work, care for their family, or medical bills start piling up, financial worries can become overwhelming. If you are a victim of a semi-truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, loss of future earnings, and other damages.
Semi-Truck Accidents in Tennessee
Tractor-trailer accidents are all too common on the Tennessee roadways. Tennessee has over 18 interstate highways, which total over 1,000 miles. Because of its many interstates and their access to over one-third of Tennessee’s 95 counties, Tennessee ranks sixth in the nation for cargo carried by trucks. East Tennessee drivers must be watchful of the many semi-trucks on our highways. In 2008, there were over 300 semi-truck accidents in Greene, Washington, and Sullivan Counties.
According to the most recent report available by the U.S. Department of Transportation, there were 4,564 people killed and many more in accidents with commercial trucks or buses in the United States in 2016. Many of those injuries were serious.
