Tennessee Semitruck Accident Attorney

Tennessee highways are often clogged with trucks passing through the state or delivering goods to local manufacturing facilities, which means the odds of you being in an accident with a truck increase due to volume alone. Trucks are more prone to rollovers. Typically, injuries are far more severe. If an accident does happen, your injuries are likely to be much worse than in a simple auto accident due to the size of the truck. Many of our clients are unable to work while they recover from their injuries, and others are completely incapacitated. At The Sexton Law Firm, we've helped clients who have suffered a variety of injuries in trucking accidents, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussion
  • Loss of limb
  • Disfigurement
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Heart attack

In Tennessee, personal injury lawsuits are typically subject to a one-year statute of limitations — which means auto accident victims have one year from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for their injuries. Moreover, auto accident damages require fault be found before compensation can be awarded. For auto accident victims, this means there's not a lot of time to put together a lawsuit before the statute of limitations passes.

Compassionate Help For Truck Accident Victims

At The Sexton Law Firm, we understand how to build a strong truck accident case — gathering evidence from police reports, witnesses, photos, experts and other sources. A strong case is critical to proving the negligent party is at fault and obtaining favorable results for you.
