Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyers in South Carolina
There's too many trucks on the road, plain & simple. And when trucks collide with cars, it's not a fair fight. Drivers and their families are devastated. Lives are forever changed, and fatalities are common. Sadly, most of these wrecks could be avoided if trucking companies and their drivers followed rules that are designed to keep our roadways safe.
Some of the most common tractor trailer wrecks are caused by defective equipment on the trucks. Tire blowouts and defective brakes leave other drivers defenseless. Truck drivers frequently ignore speed limits and fail to maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead. Illegal and improper U-Turns pose severe danger to other drivers. And improper lane changes force other cars off the road resulting in grievous injuries. Some truck drivers even fall asleep at the wheel because trucking companies place a higher priority on timeliness than on other drivers' lives.
Most people do not realize that trucking companies have teams of lawyers and investigators that respond immediately when an accident happens. Their primary goal is clear: defend the truck driver and deflect fault to the victim at any cost. These hired guns are working to defeat your case before you even know you have one. This makes it very crucial that you contact legal counsel as soon as practicably possible.
