Car accidents: Tennessee morning commutes can be deadly

The hours between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. are often chaotic for travelers. Tennessee highways are typically laden with traffic at such times, and drivers must be on high alert for potential problems on the road. Car accidents often occur, especially when even the most cautious of motorists are unable to safely react in time to avoid collisions when the unexpected happens.

Sadly, a fatal crash occurred at approximately 7:15 a.m. on a recent Monday. Investigators are still working to determine what might have caused a vehicle traveling in a westbound direction to careen out of control into the oncoming lane. Not only did the vehicle hit another car head-on, the sudden collision caused two other cars to wreck as well.

The collision resulted in a fatality as well as another traveler suffering critical injuries. Thankfully, the motorists involved in the secondary crash were physically unscathed although their vehicles likely sustained damage. In addition to loss of life and property damages, collisions like this one often cause serious emotional trauma to the loved ones and friends of those who are fatally or seriously injured.

Tennessee law allows recovering victims of car accidents, as well as immediate family members of fatally injured victims, to seek financial recovery for their losses by filing legal claims in civil court. When a plaintiff can show evidence that driver negligence was a causal factor toward death or injury, the court may be moved to award compensation for damages. Such monies can then be used to help cover funeral expenses, medical bills and other financial burdens associated with a particular incident.
