Large commercial vehicles like eighteen-wheelers and semi-trucks are a unique presence on roads that are primarily occupied by small passenger vehicles. Commercial trucks also present a unique danger, especially on highways when they are traveling at higher speeds and may also be carrying hazardous materials. Where commercial trucks are involved, seemingly insignificant driving errors or other factors can put truck drivers and others at risk for catastrophic accidents in situations where, had a passenger vehicle been involved instead, the consequences may only have been minor. Unfortunately, the long-term effects of trucking accidents in Tennessee can be devastating for injured victims and for the loved ones of those killed in commercial truck accidents. If you have been injured in a TN trucking accident, contact our Nashville trucking accident attorneys for qualified legal help.
Common Causes of Nashville Trucking Accidents
As Tennessee roadways become more and more populated, the frequency of motor vehicle accidents remains a serious problem, and more and more attention is being paid to the alarming rate of commercial truck accidents in particular. Although truck drivers are subjected to stringent regulations and safety training, the number of drivers and passengers killed and injured in trucking accidents in the United States is astonishing. Some of the most common causes of commercial trucking accidents in Tennessee are:
Prescription drug use
Inadequate driver training
Pressure to driver faster and log more hours
Unrealistic schedules and expectations
Adverse Effects of Trucking Accidents on Injured Victims
In addition to the potential for causing serious harm, trucking accidents may also subject victims to significant financial burdens, including the extensive medical treatment sometimes required by victims of severe injuries. For those individuals who suffer from major trucking accident injuries like back and neck injuries, paralysis, or head injuries, life-long medical care may be required for chronic or persistent pain, which can result in costly medical expenses. In addition, the inability to return to work may result in life-changing financial consequences for some trucking accident victims.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
