On a recent Thursday in Nashville, a tragedy occurred. The situation involved two motor vehicles, one which was a Tennessee Department of Transportation truck. The other vehicle was much smaller, which may be why it bore most of the impact of the crash.
Sadly, the driver of the car did not survive. Two workers from the official government vehicle were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening. Several lanes of traffic had to be shut down after the accident. As often happens in the aftermaths of trucking accidents, investigators were continuing their probes because they had not determined the exact cause of the crash.
A Tennessee personal injury attorney can advocate on behalf of the injured in trucking accidents, or family members of deceased victims, who wish to file injury claims in civil court based on evidence of driver negligence. To begin the process, it's often best to document the details of the events leading up to the crash as thoroughly as possible. Third-party testimonies may also be enlisted, whenever possible, in order to substantiate a claim.
