Trucking Accident Cases We Handle

Traffic violations

When a truck driver commits a traffic violation, like speeding or following too closely, the results can be catastrophic for innocent victims.

Dangerous trucking activity

Truck drivers must handle their vehicles with care. Wide turns, failing to control speed on a hill, and failing to account for large blind spots are just some examples of dangerous trucking behaviors.

Trucking regulations violations

The trucking industry is highly regulated, and for good reason. Hours of service violations, inadequate training, and a lack of required equipment are all regulatory violations that can result in harm.

Driving too fast for weather and road conditions

Even when truck drivers have deadlines to meet, they must account for weather, traffic around them, and road conditions. Drivers must adjust their speeds and following distance according to the conditions on the road.

Spinal injuries

Spinal injuries are a common type of trucking accident injury. In a claim for compensation, we’ll address rehabilitation expenses and personal care needs. Future damages may be claimed.

Traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries vary significantly in their severity and impact on the victim. We work with experts to make sure that your claim is thorough, documenting your injuries and the compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic injury

Bobby Jones Law is experienced in catastrophic injury claims. If you have suffered a life-changing injury, you can count on us for the detailed and thorough representation that can make a difference in your future.

Drunk driving, texting, reckless driving

Drunk driving, texting, and reckless driving are unacceptable for all drivers, especially truck drivers. We investigate and build the evidence. Then, we hold offenders accountable and claim your compensation.

Who’s at Fault in a Truck Accident Case?

Truck drivers have a duty of care on the road. The basis of a case is that the truck driver or trucking company is at fault for an accident. To receive compensation, you must show:

  • An accident occurred
  • Who is at fault for the accident
  • You have injuries and damages that resulted

Most claims are based on negligence, which is a violation of the duty of care. Truck drivers must use reasonable care and caution. Failing to do so may make them liable for an accident. In addition to negligence, there can be other grounds for a claim, like a vehicle design or manufacturing defect that may have contributed to a crash.

In addition to proving fault, we prove that your injuries are the result of the accident. We refute any arguments about pre-existing conditions or other sources of injury. Then, we identify your damages and seek sources of compensation, like insurance policies and parties who may be personally liable to satisfy a judgment.

What to Do Following an Accident With a Truck

Dialing 911 and receiving medical attention are, of course, the first two tasks which must immediately be taken care of. Since truck vs. car accidents typically result in extremely serious injuries, the victims may not be able to take care of these tasks, and others may be responsible.

Even in rare cases, when a victim of a truck accident believes he or she is “fine,” it is still smart to have a medical professional take a look. Following an accident, the body is often pumped so full of adrenaline that the victim is unaware of injuries, which manifest hours or days later.

Then hours, days or even weeks later when the realization strikes that chronic pain or other symptoms are the direct result of the truck accident can result in a claim being denied if no medical treatment was sought immediately following the truck accident, so it is never a good idea to skip this step. A police report is also a good piece of information to have should a claim be filed later.

If the victim is able, he or she should also obtain contact information from the truck driver as well as any bystanders who witnessed the accident. While this information could seem unnecessary at the time, it could prove invaluable later on. After receiving medical attention, making sure a police report is in the works, and obtaining witness statements, the victim of a truck accident should contact his or her insurance company and an experienced truck accident attorney.

Deadlines for Filing a Truck Accident Claim in South Carolina

In the state of South Carolina, the statute of limitations—the time allowed for filing a personal injury claim—is 3 years, beginning on the date of the accident. If the claim is not filed within this three-year period, the court will refuse to hear the case.

For a wrongful death claim resulting from a truck accident, the statute of limitations is three years. Following a truck accident, it is particularly important to file your claim as quickly as possible for a variety of reasons.

Commercial trucking companies, while required under the law to keep records of safety inspections and logbooks of driver’s hours, are only required to keep such records for a certain length of time, and after that time the records can be destroyed.

This means that critical evidence in a truck accident case could be lost or destroyed if an experienced truck accident attorney is not consulted. Many trucks are now equipped with a “black box” which will show how the truck was being driven at the time of the accident as well as a complete history of the truck driver’s driving habits. This could be of critical importance as the black box can tell the speed the truck driver was traveling, whether or not the brakes were applied, idle hours, fluid temperatures and maximum rpm meaning the black box information could provide a good idea of the cause of the accident. Unfortunately, unless the black box is subpoenaed, this information might not be available, and could even be destroyed prior to a settlement negotiation or trial.

Pursuing Your Compensation

A truck accident claim may seek economic losses. Examples are medical bills, lost income, personal care expenses, and property damage. Future expenses can be claimed, too, and they must be part of your original claim.

The compensation you receive should reflect this harm. Greenville truck accident lawyer Bobby Jones makes sure that your case is not undervalued.
