Columbia, SC Truck Accident Lawyer
Understanding How Trucking Accidents Can Happen
Being in an accident with an 18-wheeler can be one of the most traumatic

for disaster. Even though your passenger vehicle may offer adequate protections

Understanding the Complexity of Your Case: Why You Need an Attorney
Accidents involving commercial vehicles are typically more complex than
those involving other non-commercial automobiles. This is due to the fact
that liability may extend beyond the actual driver of the 18-wheeler to include:
- Their employer
- The owner of the trailer or freight
- The dispatcher
- Those responsible for maintenance of the truck/trailer
- Those responsible for the loading of the truck's cargo
Additionally, these parties may be spread across a wide geographic area,
making finding and securing the necessary evidence difficult and cumbersome.
Further, the laws regulating commercial vehicles, and their insurance
system, are different than for ordinary passenger vehicles. Hiring an
attorney to represent you in your trucking accident case can make all
the difference between being treated fairly and receiving full compensation and not.
