If you were injured or if a loved one suffered a wrongful death in a traffic accident involving a semi tractor-trailer, delivery van, tanker truck, construction vehicle, or any other large commercial vehicle, please contact a Charlotte truck accident lawyer for a free consultation and case evaluation. Our injury attorneys can help truck accident victims recover financial compensation for their injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and more.
Because of trucks’ massive size, truck accidents often cause much more severe injuries than the typical auto accident. Truck accidents are also much more complex from a legal standpoint. Often there are multiple liable parties from whom we will pursue financial compensation. The tractor of an 18 wheeler may be owned by one company, for example, the trailer by another, and the contents of the truck by a third.
Our Charlotte truck accident lawyers identify all possible sources of recovery and thoroughly investigate truck accidents. We take photos of the scene, interview witnesses, and study police reports. Truck drivers have been known to keep official and unofficial logs of their driving times and distances. One complies with federal regulations, the other tells the real story. We make certain we see both versions.
