Multiple entities may be to blame for a truck accident

When big rigs and passenger cars crash, the occupants of the car are typically the ones who suffer critical injuries or lose their lives. Sharing the Tennessee highways with semis and tractor-trailers is dangerous because an accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Did you know that a large truck could weigh 20 to 30 times more than your car? They are tall, and their ground clearance can be significant enough to allow your vehicle to slide beneath it.

Truck accidents: The aftermath can be highly stressful

Tennessee highways can be dangerous, as anyone who regularly travels throughout the state can attest. Many high-risk situations result in truck accidents, which are especially tragic when fatalities occur or when children are involved. A recent incident resulted in four deaths, and has left a family not only reeling with grief but also speaking out against highway patrol investigators.

A connection between personal injury and hands-free devices?

Most Tennessee motorists carry some type of electronic equipment in their vehicles. Such items might include cellphones, iPods or GPS gadgets. Many people believe that as long as they use hands-free devices, they will be safe from personal injury. Evidence suggests this is not always the case.

Will you link these delayed symptoms to your car accident?

Victims of car accidents in Tennessee might find that, even if the crash seems insignificant and there are no broken bones or open wounds, the consequences can be severe. Collisions typically cause whiplash, which often leaves damage that is initially disguised by adrenaline, only to become evident days or weeks later.

Legal support is often needed after a personal injury occurs

Before this year ends, many Tennessee residents will be injured. Some will be involved in workplace accidents. Others may wind up with serious injuries after car accidents or mishaps on another person's property. In addition to medical attention, it is helpful to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney if another person's negligence was a causal factor in a particular incident.
