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.
People may be tempted to underestimate the effects of a dog bite or chalk up dog bite injuries to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Not knowing your rights can result in you having to cover the cost of expensive treatments or other expenses when there are other options.
