Greenville Truck Accident Lawyers

Aggressively Advocating For Those Injured in Trucks Accidents  in South Carolina

Were you in an accident with a tractor-trailer that caused severe injuries? Proving who is at fault in truck accidents is a complicated process. If the driver is at fault, it could be that they have been on the road too long or have a history of substance or alcohol abuse.

In some cases, the condition of the truck is subpar because of incomplete maintenance logs, and in others, the truckload is overweight or unbalanced. In the latter two situations, the trucking company or its client may be at fault.

Our truck accident attorneys in Greenville are familiar with the regulations and standards by which truck drivers must adhere, which, in some cases, are different than when driving a private automobile. We have worked on cases related to accidents on some of the most dangerous roads in the area.

Call us today at (864) 432-5353 to reach one of our passionate truck accident attorneys in Greenville, or contact us online. Truck accidents tend to cause more serious injuries that can quickly add up to thousands of dollars in treatment.  

 Who is Liable in a Commercial Truck Accident?

An investigation is usually launched to determine what party or parties can be held liable for a truck accident. Unlike most car accidents, there are several possible parties who can be held liable for a truck accident.

Often an investigation will find the trucking company liable since they are often caught encouraging their drivers to break trucking regulations in order to help save the company time and money.

It is possible for a trucker to be held responsible for an accident. For example, if a driver owns their own truck or if the accident was a direct result of their own negligence, such as drinking while driving.

It’s also possible for the truck manufacturer to be held liable for your injuries if an accident was caused by a defect in the manufacturing. Whatever the cause of your accident, our firm has the knowledge and skill to identify the appropriate party and fight for you. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you.

It is critical that all injuries, even those that might appear to be minor, be timely and properly evaluated and documented.
