According to the Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs, a division of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, the number of motor vehicle collisions in the state last year increased to over 142,400, the highest number in South Carolina’s history. There was a rise in more than just the number of crashes on South Carolina’s highways, state routes, local streets, and private roads. The number of accident-related fatalities increased 4.8% last year, and the number of truck accidents fatalities jumped an alarming 33.8%.

These accidents can be life-altering. Injured crash victims may face staggering medical bills, loss of income, altered quality of life, and more. If you suffered an accident with a semi-truck, big rig, tractor-trailer,  or other large commercial vehicle in South Carolina, you are not alone. Our experienced team of truck accident lawyers have helped many people like you recover from these devastating events and get proper compensation from the trucking company. We have won some of the largest truck accident settlements and verdicts in the country.

Call the truck accident attorneys at Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys for a free consultation to find out how we can help you.

Because every tractor-trailer crash is different, every truck accident lawsuit is different as well. The types of claims that an accident victim can bring vary depending on the cause of the accident, the laws of the jurisdiction where the case will be fought, and the nature and extent of the injuries and losses that you have suffered.

As the injured party, you may be able to hold the at-fault party responsible for the harm you’ve suffered and the related expenses you’ve incurred. However, transportation companies are likely to minimize or deny your claim. They have teams of lawyers ready to defend them in the event that one of their drivers or vehicles causes harm to another person. You will need a lawyer with extensive experience handling truck cases, who is familiar with trucking industry regulations and defense tactics, and who is prepared to bring your case to trial if the other party refuses to make an appropriate settlement.

The purpose of the initial consultation with our firm will be to answer any questions you may have, evaluate your unique situation, and explain your legal rights and options for moving forward.

Who can I sue for the injuries I sustained in a South Carolina truck crash?

Truck accident litigation often implicates multiple defendants. Depending on the particular facts of your case, your lawyer may advise you that the best way to recover for your catastrophic truck collision is by naming one or more of the following parties as defendants to your lawsuit:

  • The Truck Driver
  • The Trucking Company
  • The Owner of the Commercial Truck
  • A Parent Company of the Trucking Company or Manufacturer
  • The Driver of Another Vehicle Involved in the Crash
  • A Broker or Seller
  • A Third-Party Maintenance Company
  • The Company that Designed One or More Semi-Truck Parts
  • An Insurance Company

An experienced truck accident attorney understands when each of these parties can and should be held responsible for injuries, deaths, and property damage caused by a tractor-trailer collision. To discuss the best strategy for your case, contact our team at Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys.

Do I need a lawyer for my truck accident case?

If you were in an accident that involved a semi-truck, tractor-trailer, dump truck, or big rig, you may be wondering why you need an attorney to represent you in the first place. Unfortunately, trucking and insurance companies make it very difficult for accident victims to recover for their injuries. They almost always deny responsibility and refuse to cover losses. An experienced truck accident lawyer understands this playbook and the winning strategies to recoup what you deserve under the law.

Specifically, our truck litigation attorneys can help by:

Identifying who may be held responsible and pursuing all possible sources of recovery. After discussing how your truck accident occurred and learning more about the factual background of your case, we will determine the best parties and claims to maximize your chances of winning. In addition to the truck driver or company at fault, there may be less obvious sources of compensation who may be held accountable as well.

Protecting you from financial risk. Bringing legal action against a major transportation company can be expensive. At our firm, we work on a contingent fee basis, which means we only get paid when we win your case. We put forth all of the resources necessary to build a winning case – hiring expert witnesses, conducting investigation and discovery, working with top-tier attorneys –  and if we don’t win you owe us nothing. Under this arrangement, we accept all of the risk so that you don’t have to venture any of your own money in order to get the justice you deserve.

Investigating your accident and gathering evidence to win your case. In order to recover for your injuries, you will need a lot of documents and proof. Obtaining medical records, police reports, truck driver logs, black box data, insurance documents, and other evidence is often impossible or incredibly time-consuming unless you know the proper procedures. We will also pay to hire industry experts, physicians, and scientists to consult as experts who will reconstruct the accident and your injuries testify before a jury at trial if needed.

Negotiating on your behalf. Our lawyers and paralegals will deal with the defendants and their insurance companies on your behalf so that you can focus on recovering from your accident. Our Truck Accident Team has 60 years of experience in tactically negotiating large settlements for our clients, including a recent settlement of $26 million for a victim of a tractor-trailer collision.

Strategizing to win at trial. While most personal injury cases settle, we are always ready to bring your case to trial if necessary. Our truck litigation attorneys have decades of courtroom experience and know how to present a winning case to the jury.
