What to do after a Commercial Truck Accident
In the aftermath of a North Carolina or South Carolina commercial truck accident it is often difficult to think clearly. The injury may be so severe that you may not be able to speak. At times, you or your loved ones may be in a state of shock and not be aware of practical needs for building a strong case for insurance claims or injury compensation. However, the immediate actions taken by you or your loved ones can significantly affect the outcome of your case. Our Firm understands the need for family to concentrate on immediate medical care and healing and we will take the necessary steps to protect your rights and the evidence that will assist in proving negligence.
Causes of 18-wheeler Negligence Accidents
Maintenance and Loading violations – overweight or shifting of loads can lead the truck to violently shift, flip over or jackknife. Bad brakes or tire blowout can also lead to dangerous consequences such as rear-ending or swearing into a passenger vehicle. Our Firm will work diligently to obtain service logs, weight station check-ins, and, if necessary, hire experts to reconstruct the accident or inspect the truck. You may or may not know that tractor-trailers are equipped with a “black box” which records data from the rig which may be downloaded to assist with the investigation.
Truck Driver Error – driving too fast for road conditions, illegal turning or passing, changing lanes into your direct path, following too closely, failure to yield or crossing the center line.
Violation of Federal Rules/Driver/Truck – it is a clear known fact that driver fatigue is a leading case of truck accidents due to hours of service regulation violations. A careful review of driver logs and the black box recordings will assist in providing negligence. Trucking companies are required under law to keep such records. However, trucking companies often destroy these records in a short amount of time which makes it difficult to obtain copies to prove a case. Our Firm will promptly obtain trucking company records for evidence.
