Causes Of Truck Accidents

Tennessee Truck Accident Attorneys

You vs. the Trucking Company

No matter what caused a trucking accident, the trucking company's insurance carrier will try to limit its expense. Too often, this means that the trucking company will deny fault for the accident. As an individual, you will have a hard time fighting these companies on your own. It is best to have an experienced lawyer as your advocate.

The Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello knows trucking and insurance company tactics for denying liability. We are prepared to counter these tactics by investigating the accident and demonstrating who was at fault. You can rely on us to pursue your injury or wrongful death claim until we get results.

Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and state regulations govern the trucking industry. To cut costs, trucking companies and drivers often find ways around these regulations, which can lead to catastrophic accidents. Violations of safety regulations may include:

The trucking company will send an accident response team of investigators, insurance adjusters and attorneys to the scene of the accident. Relying only on their investigation would be a mistake; they do not have your interests in mind.

Our firm will investigate the cause of your accident to determine liability. We may work with an accident reconstruction expert who can determine factors such as the speed of each vehicle, which vehicle braked and which vehicle hit the other. In addition, we will check the vehicle's record of maintenance inspections and repairs. If the trucking company is at fault, we will hold it accountable.
