Truck Rollover Accident Lawyer in Nashville
An attorney who holds negligent parties accountable
When a driver loses control of an 18-wheeler, it can result in a rollover truck accident. Drivers and passengers of nearby vehicles can be seriously hurt. When negligence led to the accident that left you injured, you deserve financial compensation but the claims process can be complicated. Thompson Law can help.
In this type of crash, the wheels of an 18-wheeler lift up off the road, and the entire truck rolls over onto the ground. This can be caused by speeding, improperly loaded trailers, inexperienced drivers or mechanical defects. The truck can roll over onto a car or slide down the road and cause a collision.
Attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson knows the impact a truck rollover accident can have on victims and their families. Physically, victims are left with serious injuries that require treatment. Emotionally, they are upset at how their lives have changed. Financially, they are left with medical expenses that become out of control.
An attorney who stands up to insurance companies
There are many obstacles that get in the way of recovering financial compensation. Negligent parties often don’t take responsibility for the accident. They may deny doing anything wrong at all. This puts you in the position of having to prove negligence before you can recover compensation.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured but insurance companies are thinking about their best interests, not yours. Their best interests are about keeping their profits high. That’s why they try to pay you as little as possible. They have a variety of tactics that they use to try to minimize your compensation.
Attorney Thompson is very familiar with these tactics. He began his career as a claims adjuster for insurance companies. He saw firsthand how they operate. Now he puts that knowledge to work for clients as a truck accident lawyer. Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for them. You need an attorney who will fight for you.
The outcome of every case depends on the facts. Attorney Thompson gathers evidence controlled by the trucking company, such as hours of service (HOS) logs and data from the electronic control module (the truck’s “black box”). He reviews accident reports and medical records. He interviews witnesses and consults accident reconstruction experts, if needed.
Serving Davidson and surrounding counties
Attorney Thompson builds a strong case that holds negligent parties accountable. Negligent parties may include the truck driver, the trucking company, or both. Then he fights to help you recover financial compensation for your injuries.
This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries – such as expenses for surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. It includes lost wages if you were left unable to return to work. He may seek other compensation for damages, such as pain and suffering.
When insurance companies see that attorney Thompson has put a lot of hard work into a case, they usually agree to negotiate to stay out of court. They would love for you to accept their lowball offer because it helps them save money. Attorney Thompson is a skilled negotiator and is only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
