Though a truck crash can threaten to turn your life upside-down and decimate your finances, if another person or company’s negligence caused the accident, you may have grounds for a truck crash personal injury claim. Here’s what you should know about Tennessee truck accident cases and how Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers can help you explore your legal options, navigate the insurance claims or personal injury recovery process, and collect the compensation you deserve.
Providing Aggressive Representation and Compassionate Guidance for Tennessee Truck Crash Cases
Truck accident cases aren’t typical crash claims. Accidents involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, big-rigs, 18-wheelers, or other large commercial trucks also tend to involve catastrophic injuries, property damages, and other losses. In turn, this increases the potential for a sizable settlement or financial award, as well as fierce opposition from the at-fault party’s insurer or defense attorneys.
No one knows this better than Weir & Kestner Injury Lawyers. Before starting their own firm, our accomplished attorneys, Joe Weir and Tony Kestner, represented insurance companies. As a result, they boast unparalleled insight into Tennessee truck accident litigation, including how insurers evaluate, value, and process truck crash claims.

How a La Vergne Truck Accident Attorney Can Help Your Case
Technically, any personal injury attorney with a license to practice law in Tennessee can handle a truck crash case. However, truck accident litigation is nothing like resolving a simple car crash claim. Typically, there are a lot more damages and a lot more at stake, which is why working with an experienced truck accident lawyer is vital. Here are a few examples of what our attorneys do during litigation:
- Investigate the truck crash to determine fault
- Help you decide who to name as the defendant in your lawsuit (the pool of potentially liable parties tends to be larger in truck accident cases)
- Gather and preserve essential evidence, including sending a spoliation letter to the trucking company informing them of their obligation to preserve evidence relevant to the case
- Interview witnesses
- Handle communications between you and insurance companies or defense attorneys
- Arrange for experts to testify on your behalf, which can be extremely helpful in conveying your injuries and damages to an insurer, judge, or jury
- Negotiate and evaluate settlement offers
- Help you avoid costly, case-damaging mistakes
- Relieve stress and other burdens associated with litigation so you can focus on feeling better
What You Could Recover
Depending on the facts and evidence in your case, your recovery may include compensation for past and future truck crash-related medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, property damages, out-of-pocket costs, physical pain and suffering, mental and emotional distress, scarring or disfigurement, reduced quality of life, loss of enjoyment of life’s activities, and other losses.
