Protecting Trucking Accident Victims’ Rights
The results of semi-trucks crashing into cars can be catastrophic. Injuries often include spinal injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, burns and traumatic brain injuries. Any of these injuries change the lives of the victims and their families. In the worst cases, truck accident injuries are fatal.
With such life-altering effects, it is essential victims secure financial compensation for their injuries. At Nichol & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we fight for the rights of trucking accident victims in Knoxville and the surrounding area so they can focus on building their future after sustaining such horrific physical and emotional trauma.
Experienced Legal Representation On Your Side
To build a strong case, we carefully sift through the evidence. In trucking accidents, we look at the truck’s black box and subpoena drivers’ logs and drug testing records. We may also work with an accident reconstruction expert to determine who was responsible for the accident.
Founding attorney Doug Nichol has more than 40 years of personal injury experience. You can rely on his knowledge and skill. He will not just accept the first offer the insurance company makes; he will fight for everything you deserve.

Why Truck Accident Claims Are Different Than Car Accident Claims
If you or a family member suffered injuries in a Tennessee trucking accident, you need a lawyer on your side as soon as possible. Pursuing damages in a truck-related accident is complex. The courts must determine whether the driver, the company they drive for, or both are financially responsible. It is also important to know if the truck violated any state or federal regulations at the time of the accident.
Trucking companies and their insurers have been known to hide potential evidence. Within hours, their team of attorneys, insurance adjusters and experts will be on the scene. You need a qualified car accident lawyer to protect your rights in this situation before crucial evidence disappears. Our experienced attorneys will thoroughly investigate your claim and fight for the maximum compensation for your case.
