We see semi-trucks every time we use the highways and occasionally we must think to ourselves, “Wow, those trucks are big”. They are big, but that means they can be dangerous and major driving hazards as well. Unfortunately, this past week saw a man from Georgia lose his life on a Chattanooga highway. This Tennessee truck accident occurred as the passenger vehicle drove straight into the rear end of the rig. The driver of the passenger vehicle was declared deceased at the hospital.
The investigation is continuing so all the facts are not in yet, but we can be sure that police investigators and insurance company investigators will look to see if any driver negligence played a part in this Chattanooga accident. It certain that the investigation will be thorough as there was a loss of life.
When a family looses a loved one in a truck accident, the number of people trying to get information from them including police investigators, emergency personnel, and insurance adjusters can become overwhelming. That is why if you or a loved is involved in a truck accident in the Chattanooga area, we recommend working with a personal injury lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected.
When a family experiences a loss, the shock that immediately follows can prevent good decision making and lead to more victimization for the family. Having a person on your side that is experienced and compassionate can help things become more manageable and less confusing. This is especially true in cases where death and commercial vehicles are involved. These sorts of auto accidents can involve many areas of the civil and criminal legal systems. This is where experience counts.
