Trucking Accident Settlement for All Available Underinsured Motorist Coverage

by | Apr 18, 2022

In 2022, DRS Law resolved an auto accident case involving a tractor-trailer wreck for the maximum available auto insurance. A driver crossed the center line and struck our client’s vehicle head-on. Our client was left with a totaled truck, which he used for his business, and injuries to his neck and back.

Although he lived outside of Tennessee, our client hired the Tennessee personal injury lawyers at DRS Law firm because the accident happened in Tennessee.

After investigating the incident, including gathering all the key evidence and interviewing witnesses, DRS law quickly recovered the full limits of available liability insurance from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

But, our clients’ damages exceeded the amount of available liability insurance.

Fortunately, our client had purchased underinsured motorist coverage with his own auto insurance policy. This coverage can be used when the at-fault driver’s liability insurance is insufficient or the at-fault driver has no liability insurance at all.

We established that all of his injuries were related to the at-fault driver’s negligence and recovered the full limits of underinsured motorist coverage from our client’s insurance carrier.

If you or a loved one has sustained injuries from an auto or trucking accident, contact the Tennessee trucking lawyers at DRS Law today.

The Tennessee trucking lawyers at DRS Law have substantial experience handling auto accident cases and underinsured motorist claims.

Nashville personal injury lawyer David Anthony Smith previously worked at a nationally recognized law firm in Atlanta, defending such claims. Having been on the other side, he knows how insurance companies evaluate auto accidents and tractor-trailer wrecks, and now uses that knowledge to help individuals instead of corporations.
