18-Wheeler Accidents - Semi-Truck Accidents - Tractor Trailer Accidents
America needs tractor-trailers to move the nation’s goods around the fifty states. Unfortunately, while trucks are getting bigger, they must share the same highways as cars which get smaller each year. When a big truck gets in an accident with a passenger car, it is usually the car that gets the worst of it.
Every year in the U.S., there are nearly 500,000 tractor-trailer accidents (semi-truck accidents) with approximately 5,000 of these being fatal. In fact, one out of every eight fatal auto accidents is caused by a collision with a large truck. Typically, truck drivers escape these collisions unscathed. Car passengers are rarely so lucky.
There are special safety laws, rules, and procedures that apply to trucks. Tennessee and federal law regulates truck maintenance and the required forms and inspections for each semi-truck. These reports in the hands of experienced council such as attorney Jim Higgins can be crucial evidence in establishing the condition of the truck and reconstructing the accident.
Many truckers are employed by large corporations that may put delivery of their goods ahead of your safety. Don't pay for the transportation industry's greed.
