Trucking Accidents

Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz (“NST Law”) is a full-service personal injury law firm dedicated to representing persons injured in automobile and trucking accidents in Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee. Our attorneys are dedicated to providing skilled, professional, and personal legal counsel to all clients. In addition, our attorneys seek to guide injured victims and their loved ones through the difficult period of time following a Memphis automobile or trucking accident.

Out of all types of motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents can be the most traumatic and tragic. Due to the size of commercial trucks, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers, the impact between one of these vehicles and a private passenger vehicle can be devastating. Trucking accidents often cause severe and permanent injuries, including paraplegia, quadriplegia, and loss of limbs. In addition, a trucking accident may result in loss of life.

Trucking cases can be complex, as truckers driving through Memphis and Tennessee are subject to various federal regulations that must be followed at all times. For instance, truck drivers must keep accurate travel logs regarding hours of service, and they cannot drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Our trucking accident attorneys understand these Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and, after investigating a trucking accident, can pinpoint potential violations to help prove the truck driver’s negligence. In addition, our attorneys can retain experts to help inspect the trucking company’s maintenance records and analyze the truck’s “black box” data to help prove fault.

In catastrophic injury cases, our attorneys aggressively pursue maximum compensation for clients. If a trucking accident victim is fortunate enough to survive the accident, he or she may suffer from paraplegia, quadriplegia, loss of limbs, or even brain damage. These conditions, in addition to requiring high medical bills, may render a victim unable to work and earn a living. At NST Law, our attorneys have the knowledge and skill needed to help our clients recover maximum damages for medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability, and pain and suffering. We have the resources to retain experts to help develop life care plans, produce day in the life videos, document current and future medical expenses, prepare psychosocial reports, and develop economic reports for clients who have suffered injuries resulting in long-term or permanent disability. With over twenty years experience handling trucking accident cases in Tennessee state and federal courtrooms, we understand how to create and execute effective legal strategies for our clients.
