Hurt in a Tennessee Accident? Call Our Team of Proven Truck Accident Lawyers.

Tennessee Trucking Accident Lawyers

When an 18-wheeler is out of control, it is likely that the truck will roll, jackknife, or even catch on fire. Truck accidents result in serious injuries and or fatalities because of the speed at which trucks travel.

Trustworthy legal representation is invaluable when you are dealing with the complications associated with a truck accident claim. Trucking companies and their insurance providers are experts at blame-shifting and will do anything to avoid paying settlements. The victims of such accidents are often unsure about how to claim monetary compensation for their suffering. This is why it is wise to seek the counsel of a professional truck accident attorney such as those from Arnold & Itkin LLP.

If you have been the victim of a serious truck accident, get help from our Tennessee truck accident lawyers.

Truck Accidents Involving Drug & Alcohol Use

According to traffic accident statistics from 2008, approximately 2% of large truck accidents were caused because the truck driver had a high blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. This is above the legal limit to operate a standard passenger vehicle and twice the legal limit to operate a commercial vehicle. Even though the number of accidents involving illegal drug and alcohol use is declining, there are still accidents being caused by drunken driving and illegal drug use.

Fighting for Full Compensation with Arnold & Itkin

At first, it can be tempting to think that you can handle your claim on your own; however, trucking companies and their insurance providers are experts at dodging responsibility and shifting blame. Let our experienced team assist you in fighting for your claim and for a fair ruling. We can go the extra mile to help you fully recover from your accident. Call (888) 490-0442 if you would like to schedule a free consult.
