Horrific crash ends in a wrongful death suit

There are more vehicles on the roads in Tennessee every year. With the increase in traffic comes an increased risk of serious car accidents. A horrific crash in another state resulted in a wrongful death lawsuit against a trucking company and the driver of the truck that was involved in the crash.

A man was driving a Nissan Sentra and had a passenger in his car. The car slowed, along with other traffic, because they were entering a construction zone. A few moments later, a Dodge Ram 3500 towing a 20,000-pound piece of oilfield machinery slammed into the back of the Nissan. The truck hit the Nissan with such force that it ended up on the roof of the car. The collision caused both vehicles to catch fire, killing both of the occupants of the Nissan.

According to the police report and data retrieved from the truck's computer, the truck did not break until approximately one second before the crash. This is indicative of a possibly distracted or fatigued driver. The crash is still under investigation and the lawsuit is ongoing.

Anyone involved in a catastrophic accident in Tennessee that may appear to have been preventable may wish to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the facts of the accident and may be able to determine if a civil suit for personal injury and/or wrongful death is a viable option. While no one can undo what has already happened, but a successfully litigated claim may provide compensation for medical costs, final costs and pain and suffering.
