Chattanooga Truck Accident Lawyer
Truck and freight drivers are some of the most important professionals the U.S. Employers, customers and clients depend on them to deliver around the clock. And while many of Tennessee’s commercial drivers are among the best in the nation, their work can be hazardous. Between other unsafe drivers, road hazards and vehicle failures, truckers regularly risk causing on-the-road injuries and fatalities on Tennessee’s more than 95,000 miles of public road.
Three major interstate highways merge in Chattanooga – I-24, I-75, and I-59. Several more critical roadways run in or near Hamilton County, and considering the proximity of other roadways near the Georgia-Tennessee border, the city of Chattanooga is at high risk for trucking accidents. Following a record of success in the area, Pritchard Injury Firm opened a new office in Chattanooga to establish a consistent presence in the area and remain a resource to anyone injured in a trucking accident.
