Attorneys seek relief for injuries stemming from trucking accidents in Greensboro, NC
Commercial vehicle accident cases are often brought against large companies that have the resources to frustrate victims and their families. That’s way it’s particularly important in these cases to hire a personal injury attorney who is very familiar with:
- Collision investigation — We review each auto accident claim thoroughly and take particular care in truck crash cases to preserve evidence that might not be available in cases only involving passenger vehicles.
- Types of truck accidents — Certain types of collisions are unique to trucks, such as jackknives and underrides. Other incidents, including sideswipes and crashes that occur during turns might be more likely due to sightlines that are impaired because of the large vehicle.
- Major injury claims — Due to their size, truck accidents are especially hazardous to people in other vehicles and bystanders. By consulting with medical experts, we present comprehensive arguments demonstrating the effects of head injuries, spine injuries, broken bones, paralysis and other harm triggered by the crash.
Don’t give up your rights without consulting with a knowledgeable Triad attorney who can accurately assess your potential financial recovery.
Can a trucking company be held liable for a driver’s negligence?
Due to the danger their vehicles pose, commercial truck drivers must possess a special license and abide by special regulations governing rest, sobriety and other safety measures. Electronic data recorders can provide key evidence if a question exists about whether a vehicle operator was speeding, tailgating or engaged in other improper behavior. While significant blame in many of these actions can be ascribed to the driver, the trucking company might also be negligent if it failed to train its employee properly or hired a driver who lacked proper authorization.
Can multiple parties share liability for a truck accident?
Every individual or business whose negligence contributes to a truck accident is potentially liable for the damages that result. Unlike passenger vehicles, the safe operation of a large truck often depends on numerous parties in addition to the driver. For example, the person behind the wheel might not own the vehicle or be responsible for the truck’s condition. After a collision involving a big rig, we look at fleet owners, maintenance companies, parts manufacturers and other potential defendants. If faulty brakes, excess cargo, defective equipment or other problems played a role in the crash, our firm will take action against the negligent third parties.
