18 wheeler and other commercial vehicle accidents can result in significant injury. For some families, the consequences can be even worse. When these crashes happen, bills and other consequences usually follow. Victims are also left asking questions and seeking guidance.
As a Columbia, SC accident lawyer my responsibilities begin with listening. I take time to learn your concerns, and to get to know you as more than a client. I cannot tell your story or represent your interests if I know nothing more than the facts of the crash. To achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family, I want to get to know you like family. At the end of the day, I have the same goal for every truck accident victim: full compensation for every loss you have experienced.
Protecting South Carolina Tractor-Trailer Victims Against Insurance Adjusters
Truck drivers and the businesses they work for are usually protected by insurance companies. The insurance companies have defense lawyers prepared to argue that truck drivers are not to blame for the collision, and that you should not be fully compensated for your losses. What they choose to ignore are the safety rule violations (i.e. inadequate driver training, lack of driver supervision, inadequate rest, improper vehicle inspections) that lead to crashes and cause harm.
18-wheeler victims should not also become victims of the truck driver’s insurance company. While insurance companies spend countless dollars to pass unjust laws and persuade the public that victims of trucking negligence should not receive fair compensation, justice must prevail. Often times, the best way to hold unsafe trucking companies responsible for your injuries is to have an attorney on your side.
My firm is based in Columbia, which allows me to represent people involved in trucking collisions from Greenville to Charleston to Myrtle Beach, and throughout our state. I want injured people to focus on their recovery without having to stress over insurance and legal issues. As I often tell clients, let me worry about the law while you concentrate on getting well. I am familiar with truck driver's defenses and excuses, as well as their insurance carriers' gimmicks. If you are tired of trying to take them on by yourself, help is available.
