Getting Compensation in Truck Accident Cases

One topic is often at the center of truck accident cases: standard of care. Did the truck driver and the trucking driver do everything they were required to do in order to be safe? Many times, the answer is no.

At the law firm of Scott & Cain in Knoxville, Tennessee, our attorneys know what the law requires of commercial truck drivers and trucking companies. We know how to use that knowledge to defend the rights of our clients.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to the negligence of a semi truck driver, or if you have lost a family member in a truck accident, we will help you get the compensation you need.

What Standard of Care Issues are Involved?

When we bring in our experts to review a truck accident, we see the same issues over and over again. These issues can be indicators of negligence.

One of the most common issues becomes visible when we analyze log books. Our lawyers discover that the books aren't accurate, that they have been used improperly to cover up the fact that the driver was spending too much time on the road. This can lead to the discovery that negligence in the form of truck driver exhaustion caused the accident.
