Chattanooga Truck Accidents Lawyers
Tennessee and North Georgia Semi Truck Crash Attorneys
A 74-year-old woman was the victim of a severe tractor trailer truck accident in Tennessee. She suffered serious injuries which created a significant burden on her and her family. The attorneys at Stulce & Yantis stood by her and her family while aggressively advocating for full financial recovery. Our involvement in this case from the very beginning and perseverance throughout the duration of the case resulted in justice. We recovered $2.4 million for the truck accident victim and her family.
We are proud to be AV rated* by Martindale-Hubbell, their highest rating, for the quality of our client service and the effectiveness of our personal injury representation. We are equally honored to be recognized as Board Certified Civil Trial Specialists.** If you or a loved one has been involved in a trucking accident in Tennessee or Georgia, our attorneys encourage you to contact our law firm as soon as possible after the accident to schedule an initial case evaluation. We move quickly to start protecting your rights.
At Stulce & Yantis, we believe personal attention and legal experience are critical to successful outcomes. Let us put more than 30 years each of legal practice behind your case.
Time Is of the Essence After a Trucking Accident
Valuable evidence is best recovered immediately after a truck accident. If the truck is moved, the necessary detailed investigation into the causes of the accident becomes much more complicated. Truck drivers’ logs, onboard computers (similar to “black boxes” in aircraft), weather reports and eyewitness accounts are difficult, if not impossible to obtain after time has passed. In addition, witness accounts and other evidence may have been distorted by insurance adjusters who move quickly to mitigate the accident. We promptly investigate truck accidents to uncover negligence which contributed to the accident, such as:
- Over-demanding delivery schedules which induced the trucker to speed
- Negligent loading of the tractor trailer which caused the semi truck to rollover
- Defective truck parts, such as tire defects, brake defects or other defects which caused the truck accident
Our truck accident attorneys meet insurance companies head on. We obtain detailed accident reconstruction reports, complete medical records and other forms of evidence. Whether you have suffered a head injury or spinal cord injury or a loved one died in the accident, we work to show the true damage the accident has caused you and your family.
Helping Out-of-State Truckers Injured on the Job
At Stulce & Yantis, we also represent out-of-town truckers who have been involved in 18-wheeler accidents in Tennessee, or who work for Tennessee-based trucking companies. Our Chattanooga work comp lawyers can assist with workers’ compensation issues as well as legal matters related to a truck crash itself. Employees of Tennessee trucking companies such as U.S. Express, Covenant Transport, and Southwest Motor Freight must file a workers’ compensation claim against these companies in Chattanooga. Our firm has successfully handled numerous workers’ compensation claims for truck drivers and other injured workers who live out of state but were injured while working in Tennessee.
