Professional Chattanooga Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorneys Pursue Justice When Accidents Cause Harm

Aggressive representation holding commercial vehicle owners accountable

Commercial vehicles travel on our local roadways daily. These delivery trucks, buses, tractor trailers and cargo vans transport people, chemicals, and/or consumer products, which generally makes them larger and heavier than most vehicles. When involved in traffic accidents, these vehicles can cause substantial harm to people and property.

The experienced Chattanooga commercial vehicle accident lawyers of Wagner Workers Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyers have handled many of these incidents over our seven decades of legal practice. We recognize the challenges faced by injured victims, so we commit our resources and knowledge to fighting for justice.

Legal assistance you can trust for a variety of commercial vehicle accidents

At Wagner Workers Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyers, our attorneys have successfully handled numerous injured victims in a variety of commercial accident cases, including those involving:

  • Interstate freight carriers, often referred to as big rigs, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers or semis
  • Interstate passenger carriers, including buses
  • Intrastate hazardous vehicle transport vehicles
  • Household goods carriers such as moving vans
  • Other types of large trucks, including delivery trucks

Causes of commercial vehicle accidents

Truck, bus, and van accidents occur for a number of reasons. Sometimes, it is the fault of the trucking company or the individual driver—or a combination of both. At our firm, we commonly see commercial truck accidents caused by:

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Speeding
  • Poorly maintained vehicles
  • Breaking traffic laws or commercial vehicle driving laws

Unlike a privately-owned passenger vehicle, commercial vehicles are owned by either a small company or large corporate enterprise. This makes pursuing a legal claim a little bit tricky, because there might be many individuals or entities to involve.

Additionally, an in-depth investigation is often necessary to accurately uncover the cause of the accident. Was it driver fatigue? Defective brakes? Poor weather conditions? Whatever the cause, there is no substitute for a zealous and well-qualified Chattanooga truck crash attorney. We have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation and effectively guide you through the commercial vehicle accident claim.

Pursuing compensation for serious vehicle accident injuries

Commercial vehicle accidents often result in severe injuries, largely due to the size and weight of these machines. As an injury victim, you may be dealing with a spinal cord injury, a traumatic brain injury, a burn injury, or the wrongful death of a loved one. Your world has been altered forever, and you and your family most likely face extraordinary challenges such as:

  • Exorbitant medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses if applicable
  • Lost wages
  • Months or years of medical treatment, physical therapy, occupational therapy and costly skilled personal care needs
  • Pain and suffering

Regardless of the business size, the Chattanooga commercial vehicle accident lawyers of Wagner Workers Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyers have the knowledge and skill to hold the driver and company accountable for your injuries. We help you to obtain the compensation you need to cover all your new expenses.
