When a large truck collides with a smaller vehicle or pedestrian, the results are almost always catastrophic. The injuries sustained are often severe and result in life-long disabilities or death.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Tennessee
Almost all truck accidents have one thing in common: they could have been avoided if the driver had engaged in safe driving practices and the roads and their vehicles were well maintained. At the Law Offices of Edward L. Martindale, Jr., P.C., we perform a detailed investigation into each crash to discover who caused the accident and hold them legally accountable for their actions.
Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:
- The truck driver was fatigued and had driven over the legal limit of daily driving hours
- Drunk or reckless driving
- Unbalanced or poorly loaded trailers
- Poor truck maintenance
- Faulty or worn-out braking systems
- Poorly trained truck drivers
- Other reckless drivers on the road that cause a multiple-vehicle collision
- Poor road conditions
These cases are often complex because they involve multiple parties, including the driver, their trucking company, and their insurance company. To seek the full and fair compensation you need requires a tenacious approach that not only does everything legally possible to protect your rights, but also is dedicated to building a strong case through thorough investigation into the evidence. Or firm works diligently to help our clients recover and move forward after an accident.
