Tennessee Trucking Accident Lawyers

Put Nationally Recognized Trial Attorneys on Your Side

When an 18-wheeler is out of control, it is likely that the truck will roll, jackknife, or even catch on fire. Truck accidents result in serious injuries and or fatalities because of the sheer size and weight of these large commercial vehicles, not to mention the fact that they could be carrying cumbersome or hazardous cargo. Trustworthy legal representation is invaluable when you are dealing with the complications associated with a truck accident claim. Trucking companies and their insurance providers are experts at blame-shifting and will do anything to avoid paying settlements. The victims of such accidents are often unsure about how to claim monetary compensation for their suffering. This is why it is wise to seek the counsel of a professional truck accident attorney such as those from Arnold & Itkin LLP.

If you have been injured or have lost a family member, get help from our Tennessee truck accident lawyers by calling (888) 493-1629. Your consultation is free and private.

Truck Accidents Involving Drug & Alcohol Use

According to traffic accident statistics from 2008, approximately 2% of large truck accidents were caused because the truck driver had a high blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. This is above the legal limit to operate a standard passenger vehicle and twice the legal limit to operate a commercial vehicle. Even though the number of accidents involving illegal drug and alcohol use is declining, there are still accidents being caused by drunken driving and illegal drug use.
