Do I Have a Case?

If you were injured in a truck accident, you might be wondering if you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. Jay & Brent are here to work on your behalf for the settlement you deserve. First, let’s look at a few factors that will help us determine if you have a case that will result in a settlement that’s worth your time and energy.

Here are some of the common types of truck accidents we often help our clients secure settlements for:

  • Jackknife: A jackknife is when a rig folds at the connection point, forming a 90-degree angle or “jackknife” shape.
  • Rollovers: Rollovers occur when a truck driver loses control of the truck, causing it to roll onto its side.
  • Blind spots: Commercial truck blind spots cover a large part of the vehicle’s sides. If a driver can’t see vehicles in the blind spot while changing lanes, vehicles run the risk of being hit or forced off the road.
  • Underride: Underride accidents occur when a truck driver stops abruptly and a smaller car behind them gets lodged under the trailer.
  • Loose loads: Improperly loaded or secured cargo can fall off of a truck, causing hazards to other vehicles on the roads.

In Tennessee, there is a time limit on car accident claims called a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the time frame you have to pursue a civil complaint or criminal charges. In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for a truck accident injury claim is one year following the date of the accident or the date of the injury. Considering the statute of limitations provides such a small window of opportunity, it’s critical to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible. Our experienced Chattanooga truck accident lawyers are ready to help you seek the money you deserve within Tennessee’s unique deadlines.

Truck Accident FAQs

Determining who is responsible after a truck accident is rarely straight-forward. Unlike many passenger vehicle crashes, there are several parties that could be liable in accidents involving large trucks. When evaluating truck accident claims, our office investigates the role the following parties may have played:

  • Truck driver
  • Truck company
  • Manufacturers of defective truck parts or safety equipment
  • Insurance provider of the trucking company or driver
  • Individuals who shipped or loaded the truck’s cargo
  • The company that leased the truck or trailer

The statute of limitations in the state of Tennessee is one year. This means if you wish to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for your accident, you have exactly one year from the day of your accident to do so. Contact our attorneys as soon as possible after your accident to ensure you don’t miss your chance of receiving any compensation you may be owed.

It’s important to remember that insurance adjusters do not work for you. They make money by paying as little as possible to injured victims and will use a number of tactics in order to do so. Our experienced Chattanooga, TN, truck accident lawyers will be able to spot their strategies and demand a fair amount on your behalf.

It’s important that you seek legal counsel as soon as you have received the medical attention you need. Your lawyer will need time to gather documents and evidence before negotiations with the insurance company can begin. Obtaining legal counsel sooner rather than later will give you a better chance of receiving the maximum amount of compensation you’re owed.

While every claim is different, one thing always stays the same: it won’t cost you anything to hire McMahan Law Firm. We work on a contingency-fee basis, which means our payment is dependent on whether we win your case. We also offer free consultations where we will review your case and determine whether we are able to help. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by calling Jay and Brent!
