Holding Truckers And Trucking Companies Accountable

Despite strict federal regulations to protect the public, truck drivers and their employers do not always act responsibly. Fatigued, under pressure to make deliveries or simply careless, commercial haulers cause thousands of truck accidents every year. For those in the other vehicle, the outcome is often devastating.

Injured In A Truck Crash? Free Consultation At 800-215-1081

If you suffered serious injury in a tractor-trailer accident or a family member was killed, contact the Murfreesboro law firm of Waldron, Fann & Parsley. We offer aggressive, knowledgeable representation to get the full compensation you deserve. While we are located in Rutherford County, we will pursue cases on behalf of our clients throughout Tennessee.

Determining The Cause Of A Truck Accident

Tractor-trailers, dump trucks and other big rigs are well-insured. To collect damages, however, we must prove that the truck driver or trucking company was to blame. Our trial lawyers often work as a team to build a case. We visit the scene to gather evidence and get witness statements. We make sure the vehicles are inspected and hire accident reconstructionists as necessary.

Liability falls into three categories:

  • Truck driver negligence: speeding or tailgating, illegal traffic maneuvers, changing lanes or pulling out without looking, fatigue and inattention
  • Trucking violations: driving too many hours without rest (and falsifying log books to hide the fact), overweight trucks, failure to inspect and maintain the 18-wheeler
  • Negligent hiring: hiring unlicensed or unqualified truckers, failing to train drivers, or failing to check the criminal and driving history of applicants

We work hard to prove that any or all of these contributed to the crash. We know that victims of truck accidents suffer a disproportionate rate of spinal injuries, head injuries, broken bones and fatalities. We aim for full and fair compensation to cover the medical bills and lost earnings, including damages for a permanently disabling injury.
