RedStone Law handles semi-truck and trailer accidents. Semi-truck and trailer collisions require an understanding of the regulations and physics involved in such incidents. Due to the weight and size of semi-trucks, the risk of personal injury or death is significantly higher than a normal motor vehicle accident.
To reduce truck related injury or death, the government enacted stringent rules and regulations for truck drivers and trucking companies. Compliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Carrier Safety Act, and regulations from the Federal Motor Vehicle Carrier Safety Administration, are designed to reduce injuries and deaths caused by semi-truck and trailer negligence. States, including Kentucky and Tennessee, also enacted safety regulations for truck drivers and trucking companies.
But some truck drivers and employers take shortcuts with safety. Careless shortcuts often result in serious injury or death. Legal action is required to ensure those harmed by negligent truck drivers and their employers are held responsible.
Tennessee and Kentucky law requires appropriate legal action within one year of the event causing injury or death. A delay in contacting a lawyer could result in a failure to timely file your otherwise valid legal claim.
