Detailed Analysis Of The Truck Accident
When you secure help from our attorneys, we can begin an immediate investigation into the cause of the commercial vehicle wreck. Parker and LaDuke will:
- Preserve evidence
- Take photographs
- Collect police reports
- Interview people on the scene.
The later you involve an attorney in your case, the harder it is to gather evidence to support your case. Also remember that the insurance company will call you, gather its own evidence and may attempt to limit your claim. Our firm will consistently work on your side, protect your rights, analyze all evidence to determine the liable party and seek fair compensation on your behalf.
Potential Causes Of The Accident
If you have suffered personal injuries in a truck accident in Tennessee, remember that under Tennessee’s state law, any court action must be filed within one year of the date of the injury or it would be forever barred by the Tennessee statute of limitations covering personal injuries. This is one of the shortest personal injury statutes of limitation in the country, so it is important to pursue your claim without delay.
Working with accident reconstruction experts and others, we can determine the cause of the accident. Common causes of truck accidents include the following:
- Driver fatigue/driving over hours
- Excessive speed or not driving in accordance with weather/road conditions
- Improper lane changes
- Driver under influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Insufficient driver background checks
- Other noncompliance with state and federal trucking regulations
Our firm is exhaustive in our efforts to identify the cause of the trucking accident. When we know how the accident was caused, we know who to hold responsible. We are dedicated to providing our injured clients with vigorous advocacy and holding negligent truckers and trucking companies accountable for their actions.
In addition to representing seriously injured people, we handle wrongful death claims on behalf of people who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents. As trial lawyers, we can readily assess when proceeding toward trial is in our client’s best interest.
How We Get Paid
You do not pay unless we recover. We charge a 30% contingent fee (from the recovery). This is 3% less then the industry standard. Why pay more?
