What Are The Common Causes Of Tractor-Trailer Crashes Across North Carolina?
The most common cause of commercial vehicle crashes across North Carolina is that the truck is simply unable to stop and rear-ends a passenger vehicle. The second most common cause would be that a truck pulls out in front of the path of an uncommon passenger vehicle.
What Are The Types Of Serious Injuries Caused By Tractor-Trailer Crashes?
Due to the large size of trucks, injuries resulting from a trucking crash can often be catastrophic. These injuries could include:
- Broken bones
- Severe soft tissue injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Head trauma
The injuries are often catastrophic because you have a 3,000-pound vehicle coming into contact with a 30,000-pound vehicle, often at a high rate of speed.
Who Is Potentially Liable For My Serious Injuries In North Carolina Tractor-Trailer Crashes?
When it comes to tractor-trailer crashes, there are two potential liable parties:
- The driver
- The trucking company
The liability will be determined by who the actual owner of the vehicle is. If there are any types of violations of federal or state safety protocols, that can bring the trucking company into a different world of liability, as well.
What Damages Might I Be Able To Recover For My Severe Injuries After A Truck Crash In North Carolina?
In all personal injury cases, you have the right to make a claim for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
With tractor-trailer crashes, you may also be able to receive punitive damages if the actions of the trucking company amount to gross negligence.
What Makes Your Firm The Go-To Truck Accident Law Firm In North Carolina?
My firm is the go-to law firm in North Carolina for tractor-trailer crashes because I concentrate all of my skill on handling car and truck crashes. I have a good basis of knowledge on how to handle those cases, in particular.
Before I became an attorney eight years ago, I worked as a claims adjustor or in insurance claims for approximately 20 years. Before that, I was a law enforcement officer, where my duties included investigating these types of crashes.
I have a unique perspective of the insurance company and the police officer in these investigations. That perspective, along with my knowledge of the law, allows me to bring a wealth of knowledge to each and every case.
