Serving Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Kingstree, & Throughout South Carolina

In an instant, a serious semi-truck accident can change your life. These catastrophic accidents cause life-altering and sometimes fatal injuries. Someone else's negligence or carelessness is often the cause of these accidents and resulting injuries.

But how do you know if someone else caused the accident that injured you? Contact our experienced lawyers for a free consultation by calling (803) 828-6100. We can investigate the details of the crash to determine the cause.

What Factors Contributed to the Accident That Injured You?

Sometimes truck accidents are wholly preventable. In such scenarios, it is usually someone's careless behavior that causes the wreck. There are many things that could potentially contribute to a truck accident, such as:

  • Inclement weather
  • Drowsy truck drivers
  • Inebriated or intoxicated truck drivers
  • Distracted truck drivers
  • Unrealistic delivery schedules
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Unsafe roadways
  • Inadequate roadway maintenance
  • Defective tractor-trailers or truck parts

All of these things are instances of negligence. Your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering are all things that you should be compensated for if you were injured in an accident. We offer a no-obligation, free consultation so that you can discuss your options with our attorneys and decide what will be best for you moving forward.

Proving What Caused the Accident

We use advanced technology to show arbitrators, mediators, judges or juries how the accident was not your fault. We'll also show how the injuries have affected your life and your well-being, demonstrating that you deserve maximum compensation for these things. You should not have to suffer the consequences of an accident in which you were involved through no fault of your own.
