Top Reason For a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Tennessee: Negligence
Semi-truck collisions are not like other accidents. America has been seeing a trend of nearly half a million crashes involving large trucks each year. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which operates as part of the Department of Transportation, “Of the approximately 475,000 police-reported crashes involving large trucks in 2016, there were 3,864 (0.8 percent) fatal crashes and 104,000 (22 percent) injury crashes.”
In many truck cases we take on, there’s an overwhelming chance the crash was due to negligence on the part of the truck driver and/or trucking company.
Truck accident lawyers adopt this basic understanding of negligence in these circumstances: A semi-truck driver needed to use reasonable care while driving, failed to live up to those standards, and a collision with injuries occurred as as result. That’s bad news for everyone, and payment of money damages should fall upon the shoulders of those at fault.
Negligence cases the assembled Tennessee trucking accident team can assist with might include:
