Tennessee Motorist Survives Trucking Accident

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, on January 30th, 2014, a Tennessee man was admitted to the hospital with injuries after a tractor-trailer truck sideswiped his vehicle causing him to be stuck in the wreckage. After being trapped under the tractor-trailer for over an hour, the man was freed by local police and taken to a local hospital. This accident took place on Interstate 40 near the Campbell Station Road Interchange as a result of a truck sideswiping another vehicle causing traffic to stall in both directions for much of the morning. Tennessee semi-truck accidents such as this one are not uncommon due to the large number of commercial semi-trucks that are driving in Tennessee.
Semi-trucks are generally very large vehicles and since it can be difficult for truck drivers to see other vehicles in surrounding lanes, accidents such as the one described above can occur. Additionally, Tennessee trucking accidents are common when trucks are traveling at high speeds on the interstate because seeing surrounding vehicles becomes even more difficult. Tennessee trucking cases are very complex due to the complicated nature of the laws that guide trucking companies and their drivers known as the Federal Motor Safety Regulations. Additionally, the regulations require that any commercial truck driver who has committed two serious traffic violations in any three-year period will have their license suspended for no less than sixty days. Tennessee trucking companies are responsible for monitoring their employees and enforcing these federal rules. However, this is not always the case and at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz (NST Law), our trucking attorneys have extensive knowledge of these regulations and how they are commonly violated. We can then apply this knowledge to the unique details of a specific case and prove either the driver or trucking company’s negligence.
