Large Truck Accidents in Davidson County
Any serious car accident can change your life, but a collision with a large truck is far more likely to result in devastating, life-altering injuries. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are much more common than many people realize. In fact, thousands of Americans are killed in crashes with semi-trucks, big rigs, and other large commercial vehicles every year.
If you were injured or if your loved one died due to a large truck accident in Davidson County or the surrounding areas, turn to the Nashville truck accident lawyers at The Roth Firm, LLC for the dedicated legal representation you need. Since 2006, our firm has been fighting for the rights of injured individuals and the families of those wrongfully killed in serious motor vehicle collisions. We have a proven record of success and are selective in the cases we accept, as this allows us to dedicate all our time, resources, and efforts to each client and every case.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Truck Accidents?
Like other types of motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents can and do occur due to a wide variety of factors. Often, these collisions come down to truck driver negligence—but this is not always the case.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving, including texting, using a cell phone, or looking at a GPS device
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Fatigued driving, often as a result of hours-of-service violations
- Speeding, reckless driving, aggressive driving, and road rage
- Driving too fast for weather/road conditions
- Overloaded or improperly loaded cargo
- Lack of or inadequate truck maintenance or repairs
- Pressure to meet strict deadlines, delivery schedules, and quarterly quotas
- Truck defects, such as defective tires, braking systems, reflective strips, and engine parts
- Negligent third parties, such as other motorists on the road
Determining how the accident happened is important, but it can also be exceedingly difficult. It is important that you contact an attorney right away so they can begin investigating the accident and determining what factors contributed to or caused the crash.
The sooner you contact The Roth Firm, LLC, the sooner our Nashville truck accident lawyers can begin building your case. In Tennessee, you only have one year from the date of the accident to bring a claim (in most cases). Don’t wait until it’s too late! Reach out to our firm today to learn how we can help you with your case.
Who Is Responsible for Your Damages?
Truck accident cases are much more complex than most standard car accident claims for many reasons, primarily the issue of liability. It can be very challenging to determine who is liable for your injuries and damages after a truck accident, but our attorneys have the experience, skills, and resources to uncover all possible avenues of compensation.
Depending on the specific facts of your situation, any of the following parties may be partly or wholly responsible for your damages:
- The trucking company
- The truck driver
- The party responsible for truck maintenance or repairs
- The person or entity that loaded or unloaded the truck’s cargo
- A manufacturer
- A construction company
- Another motorist or third party
Trucking companies and other liable entities have large legal teams to defend them against accident and injury claims—you should have one, too.
Our team knows how to go up against national trucking companies, major manufacturers, and other powerful entities to fight for you and your rights. We are committed to pursuing justice and the full, fair compensation our clients are owed.
