Knoxville Truck Accident Lawyers

The legal and procedural difficulties that arise in car accident cases often become even more challenging when an accident involves a tractor-trailer. For instance, numerous federal regulations can come into play. Also, quick action is needed, because trucking companies usually have the funds to immediately investigate accidents, reconstruct accidents and generally build a defense, often within hours of a crash.

The Knoxville, Tennessee, truck accident attorneys of the Law Offices of Tony Farmer & John Dreiser have handled numerous 18-wheeler crashes and are fully familiar with the laws that govern truck accident cases. In addition, we are skilled and experienced in investigating accidents and in obtaining crucial information from a range of important sources:

  • Black boxes. These boxes are similar to those found on commercial airlines; they record a broad range of operational information prior to a crash, including movement and location. They can be used to determine if the truck driver was speeding.
  • GPS devices. GPS devices record where a truck was and when, and can be used to counter drivers' claims regarding rest stop/rest times and other claims.
  • Phone logs, which can be used to prove that a driver was distracted
  • Qualcomm devices. Qualcomm makes devices that use two-way satellite communications and geolocation for the over-the-road truck transport market.
  • Drivers' log books. These can provide information regarding driver fatigue and other issues.
  • Company maintenance records and hiring records. These can contain information regarding vehicle failure and the failure to properly screen driver applicants.

We have recovered numerous high-value awards following truck accidents on I-40, I-75 and other area throughways, and can quickly respond to your legal needs following an accident. For more information, please contact our firm.
