Truck Accidents

Fighting For The Compensation You Deserve After A Truck Accident

One of the major issues that differentiate truck accidents from other types of motor vehicle accidents is the catastrophic injuries people often suffer in them. When a 4,000-pound car is struck by an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer, the impact can have terrible results.

Recovering from the severe injuries truck accidents cause can take years. For some Dalton, Chattanooga, and Cleveland residents, the effects of their injuries can change their lives permanently. At Morris & Dean, LLC, we believe that you deserve legal representation that understands how to gain a clear assessment of your needs and knows how to build a case that can deliver what you need.

What Happens After A Truck Accident?

Trucking accidents are often complex. There can be a very high volume of evidence that needs to be gathered and coordinated to be able to overcome the fight the insurance company is likely to put up to avoid paying you fair compensation. We know how to uncover the evidence necessary to build a highly effective case. We work with accident reconstructionists and other professionals to help us win for you.

A key part of a thorough trucking accident investigation is identifying any violations of the many rules that govern trucking such as those put in place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Experience with those regulations is essential to be able to show how a violation caused an accident.

Common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Driver error
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Improper loading
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
