The objective behind any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit arising from a trucking wreck is to hold the at-fault party accountable for the harm victims have suffered. Accomplishing this goal, however, is no easy task. These types of cases often require meticulous investigation and accident reconstruction, considerable knowledge of trucking laws and regulations, and the necessary resources to take on trucking companies and insurance corporations that aggressively defend against claims, dispute or deny liability, and do whatever it takes to pay victims as little as possible.
Our firm’s passion for representing the injured has allowed us to secure millions on their behalf in record-breaking verdicts across the state. In short, you can entrust your trucking accident case to Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge.

Highway I-40, Highway I-24, and Highway I-75 are busy thoroughfares for commercial traffic in Tennessee. A fully loaded commercial motor vehicle (CMV) can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds. The large size of a semi-truck makes it difficult for drivers to brake quickly, and blind spots are also larger.
All these factors can contribute to an accident, especially when an element of negligence is introduced. Our firm vigorously represents people who have been harmed in trucking accidents involving:
Although the Tennessee Highway Patrol Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division has six CMV inspection sites throughout the state, established to catch trucking negligence and rule violations, accidents can still happen. When they do, turn to the Nashville truck accident attorneys at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge.
Commercial tractor-trailers are hazards nearly everywhere; however, they’re even more dangerous on highways, interstates, and other busy thoroughfares where more traffic and higher speeds create increased risks for wrecks and devastating outcomes. In fact, the FMCSA notes that many of the country’s most disastrous trucking accidents occur on freeways and interstates – including highways like I-40, I-24, I-75, and other major arteries which span the state.
Highway trucking accidents pose increased risks for devastating outcomes, which can include:
Highway truck accidents pose greater risks to victims as a result of both issues unique to these roadways and elevated dangers created by negligent trucking operators, truckers, and others who violate safety regulations. If you or someone you love was injured in a trucking collision on any major highway or regional road in Tennessee, our firm is available to help you better understand your rights and options for pursuing the financial compensation you deserve.
Following a truck accident, you’ll be faced with a number of parties who are all demanding your attention. First and foremost, your medical needs will need to be addressed.

The steps following the truck accident are crucial, however. You must:
The sooner you have a legal advocate, the more likely your claim will end in your favor. What is important is that you do not speak with opposing insurance adjusters or trucking companies.
