Nashville Truck Accident Attorneys
Are you seeking compensation after being injured in a truck accident?
Hundreds of commercial trucks travel on Nashville roadways every day. Because of the sheer number of rigs on the road, a large number of tractor trailer-related accidents occur—many resulting in severe injuries.
Truck accidents are more complex than other accidents because trucking companies or other parties may be liable. If you have been the victim of an accident involving a commercial truck, make sure you talk with an experienced personal injury attorney who can carefully examine your case.
Our skilled lawyers will determine the parties liable for your injuries
At Raybin & Weissman, our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing victims of trucking accidents throughout Middle Tennessee. We’ve probably even handled a case just like yours.
Because of the complicated relationships between shippers, freight companies, equipment owners and truck drivers, we carefully analyze all of the evidence of each party involved. In some cases, we are able to identify multiple defendants whose insurers may be financially responsible for your injuries.
Our lawyers represent personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs in trucking accidents caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Jackknife or fishtail accidents
- Overweight or oversized loads
- Driver fatigue
- Negligent hiring or training of the driver
- Underride accidents
- Brake failure or defective tire cases
- Flammable or hazardous materials accidents
In any serious accident involving a truck, semi, tractor-trailer or heavy construction equipment hauler, we present proof of your injuries and the need for future treatment or rehabilitation. In fatal accident cases, we concentrate on giving the jury a clear understanding of what the loss of the victim means to your family.
We work to get you fair compensation from trucking companies
Our familiarity with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations enables us to focus our investigation on the most important issues of trucking accident liability. These include:
- Inspection and maintenance of the truck
- Hours driven by the trucker in that 24-hour period and in that week
- The trucking company’s record of compliance with federal safety regulations
Other important legal considerations in trucking accidents are:
- Weather, visibility and traffic conditions
- Presence or absence of required hazard lights and reflectors
- Experience of the driver with the load and highway conditions that existed at the time of the collision
Our personal injury lawyers ensure all aspects of your case are explored and all parties involved are held accountable. Our goal is not only to help you get the compensation you deserve, but also to help prevent future accidents.
