Sometimes referred to as semis or tractor-trailers, large commercial trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. In an accident between one of these trucks and a passenger vehicle, the potential for serious or even fatal injuries increases substantially. When these accidents happen due to the negligence of the truck driver or another party, victims may have cause to seek compensation.
Truck accident cases are unique and can often be very difficult to prove. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected.
At Williams, Stitely & Brink P.C. in Lexington, we provide representation to truck accident injury victims throughout the Midlands area. We understand the types of injuries that can happen in truck accidents and we know the best approach to obtaining a favorable outcome.
Truck accident claims tend to be more complex than other types of claims. In a truck accident, there can be multiple parties that share in the liability for the accident. While driver negligence is certainly a primary cause, trucking companies, equipment manufacturers, maintenance companies and others may be at least partially to blame for the accident.
When you choose our firm, we thoroughly investigate the accident to determine how it occurred. We identify the responsible parties and seek compensation from each of them in an effort to secure the full measure of compensation available for your claim.
Contact our office in Lexington to discuss your case with a lawyer. We handle most truck accident claims on a contingency fee basis, which means that you won’t pay any attorney fees unless we obtain compensation for you. Please call us at 803-359-9000 or via email to schedule your initial consultation.
