North Carolina Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyers 

Motor vehicle accidents are some of the most common cases that personal injury lawyers handle. No two cases are identical – each has its own specific circumstances, and more importantly, unique people with specific needs. Trucking accidents, for example, could be among the most catastrophic for the victim. If you have been injured in a tractor trailer accident, you need a North Carolina commercial vehicle accident lawyer who will give your case personalized attention. 

Causes of North Carolina Commercial Trucking Accidents

As common as they are, people often overlook just how serious car accidents can be. While some accidents are simply accidents, many are the result of another driver’s negligence. Here are some examples of ordinary negligence that can lead to a serious accident: 

  • Speeding
  • Driving while texting
  • Tailgating
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Driving while intoxicated

Even if the accident is obviously the other driver’s fault, you will have to prove that they were negligent. This means collecting documents, photographs, and other evidence that demonstrates why the other driver should be held liable for your injuries. This can be simply overwhelming when you’re trying to get back on your feet. A North Carolina commercial vehicle accident lawyer can help you collect the proof that you will need. 

Complex Truck Accident Lawyers

While they share many similarities with car accidents, truck accidents are unique in many ways. First, the size and weight of the truck tend to cause more serious injuries. At highway speed, a truck accident can cause incredible damage to other vehicles and result in severe injuries to other drivers. 

Second, there may be multiple parties at fault – the driver, the trucking company, or perhaps the company that loaded the trailer. These can be incredibly difficult issues for non-lawyers to unravel, but a North Carolina motor vehicle accident lawyer who has experience with truck accident cases can be a tremendous asset. 

Third, truck drivers and trucking companies are subject to special state and federal laws concerning how they operate. Proof that they have been operating in violation of law can be powerful evidence in support of your claim.
