Tractor-Trailer and Business Vehicle Accidents

North Carolina has a huge trucking industry.  Our highways and roads are crowded with many trucks, especially pulp, timber, and logging trucks traveling to and from pulp and lumber mills. Our roads are major routes for trucks and commercial vehicles. Unfortunately, there are many accidents caused by 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, commercial vehicles, and log trucks. Sadly, I have seen my share of people and families whose lives have been ruined by careless truckers and trucking companies who did not emphasize safety.

The laws and regulations that apply to trucks, truck drivers and trucking companies are complex. Insurance for trucks is very different than car insurance. Trucking companies and their insurers do not try and help people injured or killed by commercial vehicles get full compensation.

I used to represent large corporations and trucking companies defending truck wreck cases. I now use the knowledge and experience I learned from truckers and their insurance companies to help victims of negligent truckers and trucking companies. Call me now at 919-784-9007, so that I can get to work on your case and get you the fair compensation you and your family deserve. 

Driver Fatigue & Lack of Truck Maintenance

Many truck and commercial vehicle accidents I work on could have been avoided if only the trucks had been properly maintained; if drivers were not over-scheduled and in a hurry to meet deadlines; if the truck drivers had been rested and careful and had obeyed speed limits or if restrictions on truck routes had been properly observed.

While I cannot change things after a wreck, I know how to help individuals and their families recover full, fair settlements and verdicts to cover their medical costs, lost earnings, and past and future losses. I have practiced personal injury and insurance law for decades. I have had the privilege to serve families and recover substantial amounts for clients who sustained catastrophic injuries and for families who have lost loved ones in accidents caused by the negligence or recklessness of other drivers.

If you or a loved one have been hurt in an accident with a truck or commercial vehicle, please contact me so that we can discuss the facts of your case.  I would be happy to help you sort through all the details, and answer your questions. Call me now at 919-784-9007, so that I can get to work on your case, before evidence disappears.
