Truck Accidents

South Carolina Truck Accident Attorneys

Many lives are seriously changed and some even taken each year by truck accidents. When a passenger vehicle collides with an 18-wheeler, or semi, the results can be much more severe than those of just a passenger vehicle accident. When you add together the speed, weight and movement of an 18-wheeler, you have a recipe for a serious accident and serious outcomes for those involved. Because of the size and weight of the truck, anything colliding with it doesn’t stand much of a chance. The South Carolina Truck Accident Attorneys at STACLAW can help.

Truck accidents are different from other vehicle accidents because of the laws and regulations that rule the trucking industry. There are many things to evaluate in a truck accident that could be the cause, including:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to brake properly
  • Refusal to allow other vehicles to merge
  • Driving a load that is too heavy
  • Driving defective or not maintained trucks
  • Taking turns too wide

What to do first when you’ve been injured in a truck accident

If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, the most important thing to do right away is to get medical attention. Next, you should seek legal guidance from a reputable personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You should talk to a South Carolina truck accident attorney first before talking to your insurance company, the fault drivers insurance company and absolutely before signing anything.
