Charleston Trucking Accident Lawyers

Semitrucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs and other commercial vehicles are many times the size of every other motor vehicle on the road. Sharing the road with large vehicles presents a significant danger to other motorists, especially if the driver is inattentive or there have not been proper safety checks completed on the vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a trucking collision, you can turn to the lawyers at The Law Firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, for help. We advocate for people who have been involved in highway trucking accidents.

Common Causes Of Trucking Accidents

Truck accidents in Charleston and throughout the state can be caused by a number of reasons, including:

  • Inattentive and negligent drivers
    • Drinking and driving, drug use, fatigue
  • Failure to follow safety protocols
  • Brake failure
  • Tire blows

Truck drivers are usually paid by the mile, so they are often overworked, fatigued and pushed to the limits. But when accidents occur the defense attorneys working for the trucking company are the first ones to be on the scene looking at evidence in order to prepare a defense.

When we represent our motor vehicle accident clients, we are aggressive, persistent and work diligently to reach the best possible result. We gather detailed evidence and look at all facts of the situation. From working with accident reconstructionists to examining details on the truck's "black box", we use all available resources to make your claim as strong as possible.

It's Important To Act Quickly After A Truck Accident

Unlike typical car accidents, there may be a variety of formidable parties at fault in a truck accident. From the trucker to the trucking company and their insurance company, everybody will take quick action to deny fault and cover up any evidence that may hurt their case (and help yours).

That is why, after you are involved in a truck accident, you should take swift action to be sure all evidence is obtained. By beginning to build your case early, you can ensure you are in the best position to move forward and secure the compensation that you need to make a full recovery.
