Why Do I Need a Charlotte Truck Accident Attorney to Help Pursue My Claim?
There are multiple types of commercial truck accidents that can occur in North Carolina. Unfortunately, they are not uncommon.
Last year alone there were nearly 5,000 Semi-Truck accidents throughout the state that caused more than 1,100 injuries, and over 60 fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Those numbers do not reflect the other types of commercial truck accidents that occur day to day on our roadways, including those involving collisions with box or flatbed trucks, delivery vehicles, and corporate trucks.
The only thing all truck accidents have in common is that multiple parties may be liable for your injuries and financial recovery needs.
What most injury victims do not know is, analyzing a commercial truck collision requires more than a personal injury attorney. It requires a team of legal professionals, support staff, research analysts, investigative resources, medical experts, and skilled accident reconstruction and engineering specialists who will outline the details of the crash by deconstructing the collision from start to finish.
That is what we provide, starting with a free consultation. Call us now to learn more.
Who Can Be Held Responsible for My North Carolina Truck Accidents and Injuries?
If you have been injured in a crash involving a commercial truck, you probably have no idea what hit you, or how to pursue the liable party for each of your financial recovery needs.
That is nothing to be ashamed of. Truck accidents are inherently complex, which is why we are here to help.
Typically, the first party we investigate for the crash is the truck’s driver. If he or she was negligent in any way, we will discover the origin of their recklessness and hold them accountable for your complete legal needs.
Common forms of driver negligence may include:
- Driving Distracted
- Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
- Failing to Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
- Fatigued Driving
- Not Leaving Enough Room to Stop or Traveling too Fast for the Conditions
- Violating Hours Of Service Regulations
The second potential offender for all types of commercial truck accidents in North Carolina may be the trucking company itself.
Common forms of negligence on the company’s behalf may include, but are not limited to:
- Failing to ensure all drivers are following the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
- Hiring experienced drivers and failing to properly train them.
- Inadequately conducting background checks or requiring medical exams.
Since the transit industry operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, multiple third parties may also share liability when a truck accident occurs, including:
- Negligent cargo loaders.
- Maintenance crews who fail to service the trucks properly.
- Manufacturing companies that produce defective truck parts.
Determining who is liable for your truck accident and injuries is a complex undertaking, but one we are highly trained in completing, from the investigation through negotiations, or trial, if necessary.
If you have been injured in an accident with any type of commercial vehicle in North Carolina, contact our dedicated truck accident attorneys. You are our priority, and so is your well-being.
