Tire blowouts lead to serious crashes

Did you know that tire blowouts can lead to serious accidents? This is especially true with semis and other large vehicles because losing one tire can throw so much weight in the wrong direction. A smaller, light vehicle -- like a family sedan -- may veer slightly in the lane, but a semi can pitch violently to the side, leave the road and even roll when it hits the ditch.

How to handle an accident in Tennessee

If you're involved in a truck accident in Tennessee, you need to file an accident report and communicate with the authorities about what took place.

Families of victims of truck accidents in Tennessee have options

When truck accidents occur in Tennessee, the parties involved may sustain wounds that run the gamut from mild to severe. In cases involving only injuries, victims may choose to file lawsuits against the parties they believe acted negligently. However, many people may not realize that when truck accidents result in the deaths of the allegedly negligent parties, victims' families may still pursue compensation via claims filed against the estates of the allegedly guilty parties. A recent accident that took place on Interstate 24 is a prime example of an event in which the allegedly negligent party succumbed to injuries sustained in the accident.

Tractor trailer slams into rear of van

A potential client called me this week who was involved in a tractor trailer accident. He was at work driving a company truck when the 18 wheeler slammed into the rear of the vehicle he was riding in. As a result of the accident, he was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Memphis who treated him for his wreck-related injuries. After he was released, he was unable to work. His bills totaled over $10,000.00. Unfortunately, he did not call me until over one year from the accident. In Tennessee, there is a one year statute of limitations on personal injury accidents. There was nothing I could do for him in regards to his accident.
