Involved in a Big Truck Accident?

Whether you are the driver of the truck or a person involved in a crash with a truck driver, we recommend that you seek the advice of a truck crash attorney, ideally before speaking with anyone.

A ‘truck’ in this case may be a conventional pickup truck or a larger 18 wheeler.  If you use the vehicle for work, there are other important considerations to be made – talk with a truck crash attorney today.

If you’ve recently been involved in a truck related motor vehicle accident, we are here to help. Seeking an award from an insurance company after a trucking accident is likely to prove far more complicated than after a car crash or small-vehicle accident.

One of the more complex issues you’ll face is that of ‘Contributory Negligence’ [read about contributory negligence here]

Big Truck Accidents in North Carolina – Truck Crash Lawyers’ Role Explained –

As we all know, trucks come in many shapes and sizes. We also know that in the case of larger vehicles, say an 18 wheeler, fuel tanker, tractor trailer etc, when a serious highway accident occurs it often involves several vehicles and may even extend to surrounding properties and pedestrians.

Simple or more complex, we strongly recommend the involvement of an experienced truck crash lawyer to help you navigate through the process of making a settlement or heading off a litigation.

As we’ve covered elsewhere, North Carolina is one of a handful of states in the country whose laws include ‘contributory negligence’. Should you be involved in an accident in NC, and assuming the general consensus is that it wasn’t your fault, the insurance company of whomever is the target of the claim or action will work hard to determine that you were at fault in some small way. If this can be determined then you may be faced with a situation where you are not entitled to any financial settlement from the other party.

Even if it can be proven that you bear no percentage of blame for the incident, then you can still be certain that a crash involving a larger commercial vehicle will involve an insurance company with deep pockets and a great deal of experience in minimizing their own financial impact.

So regardless of how benign a case might appear on the surface, we recommend that you talk with no one until you’ve sought the counsel of a reputable law firm with a team of lawyers experienced in handling truck crash claims.
