Tennessee truck accidents: Victim identified

Tractor-trailers are a vital part of the economy of the United States. Through their use, goods can be transported long distances in a relatively short amount of time. However, because commercial trucks are usually large, massive vehicles, truck accidents often have horrific consequences. For example, a man recently lost his life in an accident involving a tractor-trailer in Tennessee.

The accident happened one night on a day in June. According to reports, a tractor-trailer was traveling north on a Tennessee highway when its driver attempted a left turn across southbound lanes. Unfortunately, a southbound sedan struck the tractor-trailer.

Authorities have recently identified the driver of the sedan as a 54-year-old male. Unfortunately, he passed away as a result of injuries he suffered despite having his seat belt buckled at the time of the collision. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. It is unclear if criminal charges are expected to be filed as a result of the accident; however, the crash likely remains under investigation.

Most tractor-trailer drivers in Tennessee and across the country are well-trained professionals, committed to safety. Unfortunately, a single moment of distraction or slight miscalculation could result in truck accidents with devastating consequences. Some families are left wondering how they will cope with the consequences of their loss, prompting many to seek their legal options. In some cases, filing a wrongful death lawsuit may be the best option to helping surviving family members cope with the financial consequences of another person's negligence. An experienced attorney can help identify all responsible parties, potentially including a driver's employer, in the event of an accident involving a commercial vehicle.
