Massive Accident Results in the Deaths of Six People and Many More Suffered Injuries


August 30, 2015

It's not every day that you see a traffic accident that involves more than a just a few people. Traffic accidents are already difficult to investigate when they involve only one or two vehicles, so investigating an accident that involves numerous vehicles and individuals can take months or even longer to evaluate. Further, when such a large accident involves deaths and significant injuries, the aftermath is undoubtedly painful, both physically and mentally.

Recently, a horrific accident on I-75 in Tennessee resulted in the deaths of six people and injuries suffered by many others when a semi-truck crashed into the back of six different vehicles. Safety violations were evident on the semi-truck being driven, but no formal report has been completed yet. It is too early to determine whether or not the truck driver committed acts that resulted in the accident, or if perhaps other vehicles involved in the accident also played a role. When an accident involves so many vehicles and people, it can be difficult to conclude what really happened, as many questions can go unanswered for a long period of time.

Why Complicated Accidents Should be Discussed Alongside a Personal Injury Attorney

Any of the injured or deceased individuals involved in this accident deserve to have their situation evaluated by a highly skilled attorney who can take the necessary steps to obtain compensation for the injured victims. The deceased victims cannot speak for themselves, so oftentimes loved ones will seek the advice of an attorney who can review the facts of the accident and whether or not the injuries suffered may have been the fault of someone else. The consequences of a catastrophic accident like the one that occurred on I-75 can alter someone's life forever, changing the course of events in a way that would never have been expected.

While there is never a guarantee that someone else will be held responsible for causing your pain and suffering, not knowing can be much more burdensome than learning once and for all whether or not you have legal options to seek a recovery for what has happened to you. Any trucking accident or car accident that involves as few as two people can be extremely difficult to investigate, so a trucking accident that involves one semi-truck and six vehicles is undoubtedly more complicated. As such, it takes a dedicated advocate to ensure a complex case like the I-75 crash is investigated to the fullest extent possible, taking all steps possible to uncover key facts.
