One of the most notoriously hazardous stretches of interstate highway in the United States is located between Manchester and Chattanooga on Interstate 24. Motorists must navigate steep grades over an extended distance as the highway climbs and then descends Cumberland Plateau near Monteagle.
Things can become awfully treacherous when large 18-wheeler trucks that transport goods throughout the state and across the U.S. roll through that stretch of highway. In truth, commercial vehicles roar around cities and towns in south central Tennessee throughout the day. When one of them is involved in an accident, it doesn't bode well for the occupants of the other vehicle.
The experienced legal team at Rogers, Duncan & North in Manchester, Tennessee, understands how these horrific accidents with large commercial vehicles impact families. You or a loved one may face a lengthy hospital stay or extensive rehabilitation — and all of the bills that come with it.
If the accident was the result of someone else's negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, long-term rehabilitation expenses, and pain and suffering.
Southern Middle Tennessee Commercial Vehicle Accident
Commercial drivers and their employers must adhere to numerous regulations regarding the operation of their trucks. These include stipulations about vehicle maintenance and weight, as well as strict rules limiting how many hours a driver can log without an extended rest.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, or a loved one was killed in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, it is critical to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who has thorough knowledge of these regulations and the role they may play in your case.
Commercial vehicles have a data recorder similar to an airplane's "black box" in which critical information is continuously recorded whenever the vehicle is in use. Attorney J. Stanley Rogers has extensive experience investigating accidents involving commercial vehicles and knows how to interpret the data that is captured from that equipment.
Because accidents involving commercial vehicles generally involve larger liability limits, the lawyers for many of these companies put together an aggressive defense to protect their clients' bottom lines. It takes substantial resources and a tough mindset to stand up to these well-funded legal teams. Our firm is up to that task.
