Holding Truckers, Trucking Firms & Insurers Accountable

Truck accidents commonly result in major injuries or wrongful death, perhaps involving multiple vehicles or several victims. The trucking firms typically send their own investigators to the site to determine what happened and gauge the potential legal exposure.

Our Clinton truck accident attorneys act swiftly to preserve evidence crucial to recovering compensation. For example, the trucking company may fire the out-of-state driver, destroy the tractor before it can be examined, or destroy or falsify driver logbooks. There a are whole host of complicating factors that must be addressed to secure rightful compensation.

We are skilled at establishing negligence such as:

  • Truck driver fatigue from too many hours at the wheel
  • Violations of state or federal trucking regulations
  • Speeding, tailgating, passing, or changing lanes
  • Drug or alcohol impairment
  • Overweight or improperly loaded trucks
  • Bad brakes, bald tires, or other neglected maintenance
  • Negligent hiring/negligent entrustment

Lawyer Dail Cantrell has obtained multiple verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million in personal injury and wrongful death cases. He is known beyond Tennessee for his nearly perfect record at trial, a reputation that often brings the defense to the negotiating table.

The Clock Is Ticking After a Semi-Truck Accident

Prompt investigation is important. Meanwhile, the trucking company's insurance carrier may contact the family to offer compensation. You should always consult an attorney before signing a settlement or waiver; what seems like a lot of money may not cover the medical care, lost earnings, permanent disability or other losses.
