A successful Tennessee lawsuit can help after a truck accident

Last week on this blog, we talked about drug testing as it relates to truckers and how it can help keep Tennessee motorists safe. Unfortunately, there are numerous other issues innocent Tennessee motorists must be concerned with when operating their vehicles near large commercial vehicles. Is the trucker overworked? Fatigued? Sleepy? Drunk? Speeding? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then drivers may find themselves at an increased risk of a truck accident.

So, when the criminal laws and regulations fail to keep you safe and you are hurt in one of these wrecks, what can you do? One option you have is to take legal action. Particularly, if the truck driver who caused the accident was sleepy, overworked, intoxicated or he or she otherwise broke the law, then you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

Recovering compensation in these cases can breathe financial relief into your life. It may help you pay your medical expenses and replace your lost wages. You might even be able to recover money for your pain and suffering. In order to ensure that these amounts can be paid, it is often in your best interest to also file a lawsuit against the the truck driver's company.

The legal process of personal injury lawsuits can be adversarial, requiring quick thinking and sound arguments, based on the facts and law. For this reason, an experienced Knoxville attorney, like those at Costner & Greene, may prove invaluable. He or she will do everything necessary to adequately prepare your case and stand by your side to fight for what you deserve.
