Commercial truck drivers who criss-cross eastern Tennessee's highways can cause serious harm when they are not careful. Any type of motor vehicle can hurt you in an accident, but trucking accidents tend to be especially violent because of the sheer size and weight of the average 18-wheeler.
Green, Waters Ogle and McCarter practices personal injury law in Sevierville, Tennessee. We help victims of dangerous truck drivers and negligent trucking companies recoup maximum damages for their injuries. Attorney Adrienne Waters Ogle is a former insurance defense lawyer who now uses her experience on behalf of motor vehicle accident victims.
What Causes Trucking Accidents?
The vast majority of truckers are responsible and alert drivers, but sometimes truckers keep driving despite being too tired. Others drive while impaired or go too fast. Many truckers are under tremendous pressure from their employers to make deliveries on unrealistic deadlines, forcing them to drive past the point of exhaustion. Trucking companies also sometimes will put untrained drivers on the road who do not know how to avoid a collision.
Adrienne will build a strong case on your behalf and aggressively pursue a successful trial verdict or fair settlement. Often, we will pursue a claim against the truck driver's employer. We are also available to help you manage your medical bills while your case is ongoing.
