Truck accidents continue to be a threat on crowded roadways

Trucks provide a huge benefit to all of the citizens of Tennessee and around the nation as they transport goods to stores to help stock shelves and provide inventory for purchase that all combine to keep the economy trucking along. Trucks are also very large and can pose a serious threat on the nation's highways. These threats can result in horrific truck accidents.

One such accident occurred recently in Dickson County. A truck that was hauling ice cream was heading west when the rig experienced a tire blowout. The blowout caused the truck driver to lose control and veer across the yellow line. He collided head-on with an east-bound car. The collision caused both vehicles to flip, and they stopped upside down and were both engulfed in flames.

The two occupants of the car were pronounced dead at the scene. The condition of the truck driver was not known. It is unknown if speed played any role in the collision.

Truck traffic has increased as American's desire for goods and services has increased, and the increase in traffic raises the likelihood of catastrophic truck accidents in Tennessee. Losing a loved one in a traffic accident happens all too often and is difficult to bear. If one has suffered such a loss, one may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney. A lawyer can review the facts of the case and advise the client as to whether a civil suit against the party deemed responsible is a viable option. A successfully litigated claim can provide compensation for medical costs, final costs and other verifiable losses.
