Catastrophic injuries are common outcome of truck accidents

Tractor-trailers and other large trucks are such a staple on Tennessee roadways that many drivers forget just how dangerous these vehicles can be. Truck accidents tend to cause more severe damage and injuries when compared with smaller motor vehicles, and the outcomes can be devastating. In such instances, it is important to have the right compensation to handle damages.

Truck accidents can have bizarre scenarios and serious injuries

Each vehicular accident occurring in Tennessee and elsewhere must be first analyzed for the presence of negligence, then whether there is causation, and finally whether the imposition of liability for damages will flow from there. Truck accidents are among the deadliest on the state's highways. A recent accident involving a dump truck sent four people to the hospital with injuries after an evening crash on Interstate 81 in Blountville.

Truck accidents more common as more drivers fall asleep

When criminally negligent truck drivers push themselves too hard and fall asleep at the wheel, catastrophic crashes can occur. This is part of a larger trend of a decline in safety after decades of progress.
