Monroe, NC Truck Accident Attorney

Accidents involving trucks and 18-wheelers can lead to life-changing injuries and fatalities on North Carolina’s roadways. Trucks weighing as much as 40 tons frequently traverse the interstates and major roadways of the state, and thousands of people are injured, or even killed, each year when these trucks are involved in devastating big truck wrecks. If you or someone you love has been involved in a tractor-trailer collision, reach out for sound and knowledgeable advice and counsel from a truck accident attorney right away. Filing your claim in a timely manner ensures that you preserve your right to collect damages for your injuries.

The Kings of the Road

By their very size, big trucks are the kings of the road, but their operators are required to drive them safely and in a way that does not cause anyone else harm. Most truck accidents result from driver/operator error or negligence. It is often the case that the driver is distracted, fatigued, drunk/drugged, or improperly trained. Similarly, the truck itself can be the problem. Brakes fail and tires blow out on improperly maintained vehicles. Sometimes tractor-trailer wrecks occur because the trailer was improperly loaded, or the vehicle was not properly inspected. When a driver of a big truck causes an accident, he and/or his employer/insurer are responsible for injuries and damages that result, including medical costs, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and property damage, among other types of damages. Other parties may also be responsible when the fault is not entirely that of the tractor-trailer driver. In cases where the accident victim dies, survivors such as a spouse, child, or parent can step up and file a wrongful death claim to hold the responsible and negligent parties accountable for the loss of their loved one.

Who Is To Blame in North Carolina Truck Accidents?

Determining blame is a big part of preparing a truck accident claim. Blame can be assigned to one individual, multiple individuals, the trucking company or owner of the truck, and even the municipality that failed to maintain the roadway where the accident occurred. The most common defendants in a truck accident claim are the operator of the truck and whoever owns the truck.

Collecting Damages Following a North Carolina Truck Accident

When you are injured in a big truck accident, your immediate damages are seldom the only damages you will have. While most claims that result from truck accidents seek out damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, truly serious injuries require the payment of damages for future lost wages, future medical costs, and special damages such as diminished capacity or reduced ability to earn a living, loss of consortium, and more. And if you are a surviving family member of someone who died as a result of injuries sustained in a big truck accident, you may have the grounds for a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party(ies) in your case.
