Accidents Caused by Truck Drivers
Truckers are held to high standards. They are expected to maintain a commercial driver's license, adhere to strict federal trucking laws and obey the rules of the road. Semi truck drivers and other large commercial vehicle operators are held to exacting standards because the vehicles they drive have the potential to cause serious or fatal injuries.
Despite stringent trucking laws and regulations, a significant number of truck accidents are still attributable to truck driver errors, including:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Weight violations
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions

We represent clients throughout Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia in truck accident claims.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is important that you retain an attorney who understands that truck accident cases are different from car accident cases. To properly handle a truck accident claim, an attorney must have a thorough understanding of complex insurance coverage issues, trucking company policies and trucking laws which may play a role in the outcome of your case. Since trucking accidents often involve catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, you need an attorney who is capable of handling complex personal injury litigation.
Our founding attorney, Wade E. Byrd, has been representing clients in truck accident claims for more than 35 years. He understands that such cases must be thoroughly investigated and handled with a high degree of care. Since truckers often carry insurance policies that have high coverage limits, their insurance companies aggressively investigate and defend against such claims.
Fortunately, we have the knowledge and experience to stand up for our clients' rights. Our private investigators, accident reconstructionists, trucking experts and medical professionals assemble evidence and uncover facts that are critical to establishing liability and proving damages.
