South Carolina Attorneys Fighting for Victims Injured in Tractor Trailer Accidents
Truck accidents on South Carolina highways can be deadly. Tractor trailers cause on average 500,000 accidents each year. While the average car on the road weighs approximately 3,000 pounds, tractor trailers and their cargo can weigh in as heavy as 80,000 pounds.
When you combine the sheer size of an eighteen wheeler truck and negligent driving due to poor training or overworked drivers, trucking accidents happen. Wrecks can be catastrophic, leaving a victim with serious injuries, and even leading to wrongful death.
In most traffic accidents, one or more parties are responsible for the wreck. Due to the size of eighteen wheelers, as well as negligent driving from poor training or overworked drivers, tractor trailer accidents are prevalent in South Carolina, Georgia, and the Southeast.
It is important to contact an experienced accident attorney after a loved one is injured or killed as a result of a tractor trailer accident. Rest assured that immediately after a big rig accident, the trucking company will send its attorney to the scene. You need to have the same competent representation.
After being retained, Strom Law Firm’s South Carolina accident attorneys will carefully analyze all aspects of the sequence of events, road conditions, and mechanical factors which led to the collision. If retained early, Strom Law Firm will report to the scene of the accident with an expert in accident reconstruction to help understand the accident scene. Often, we find that a tractor trailer accident report fails to correspond with the true events and conditions that lead to the wreck – facts which may be beneficial to your case.
The amount of compensation that a person injured or killed in a semi truck accident, car-truck accident, or trailer disconnect accident receives depends upon several facts, including the financial losses, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life.
Simple car, motorcycle, and truck accidents do not exist. In fact, even those cases which do not involve life altering injuries or complex legal questions are often defended aggressively by insurance companies.
