The Law and Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents may result in wrongful deaths or serious, debilitating injuries, such as head and spinal cord injuries. The family of the accident victim should receive compensation for injuries resulting from the accident, which may include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages both past and future, future treatments, and more. This applies to all kinds of commercial vehicles, including:
- Heavy trucks
- Double trucks
- Piggy backs
- Container trucks
- Flatbed trucks
- Commercial carriers transporting hazardous materials
Often, trucking regulations make truck accident cases more complicated than other types of auto accidents. A lawyer must have knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMSCR). If, for example, a client's car collided with a truck that was carrying more weight than is allowed by law, his claim may be enhances.
Trucking regulations make it especially important for the attorney to make a thorough investigation in every case. At the Law Office of Jeffrey Jones, we call upon an on-site investigator as soon as possible after a trucking accident to document injuries, take photos, interview witnesses, etc.
Our attorney can handle all kinds of trucking accident cases, including those involving uninsured motorists (UM) and underinsured motorists (UIM) whose claims exceed the $25,000.00 limits of liability insurance requirements in Tennessee. Jeffrey Jones is very experienced in finding other sources of recovery.
