Getting Your Case Settled Through Mediation

Tractor Trailer Accidents

Tractor trailers can frequently be seen hauling freight on Interstates and highways across Tennessee. Tractor trailers are much bigger and heavier than most passenger cars.  As a result, accidents involving 18 wheelers and passenger cars can be devastating.
