Commercial driver and individual claims

Trucks are often used for commercial reasons. When a truck is owned or operated by a corporation or legal entity other than an individual, it is that party who may be liable to pay damages. For example, an employer may be liable for the actions of their employee.

We handle claims involving commercial drivers and private individuals. We look at all sources of compensation including insurance policies and all parties who may be involved.

You May Deserve Compensation – We Pursue Settlements and Judgments

Trucking companies have a legal duty to operate safely. They are legally liable when they cause an accident by acting negligently. Because they are commercial drivers, the legal standards that apply are high. Truck drivers and the companies they work for must act with care and caution knowing that they are in a dangerous occupation.

As we pursue the settlement or judgment that is right for you, we use our skills and experience to pursue your interests. Some ways we may serve you are:

    • Investigating how the accident occurred, including underlying causes like negligent hiring and poor training for commercial drivers
    • Preserving evidence; gathering evidence including when the defense does not want to comply
    • Evaluating insurance policies to find ways to collect your settlement or judgment
    • Communicating with witnesses, the defense and the insurance companies for you
    • Identifying the types of compensation and their value so that you have a realistic idea of the value of your case
    • Answering your questions and explaining the law
    • Negotiating a settlement or representing you if the case goes to trial


Who regulates the trucking companies?

The federal government is tasked with regulating the trucking industry. There is a long list of rules and regulations that trucking companies must follow in their daily business. South Carolina has its own regulations that supplement those of the federal government, and SC inspectors are on the ground monitoring trucks.

What should my first steps after a truck accident be?

You need to take care of your health first and foremost. Make sure that you follow up with all doctor’s appointments and take any prescriptions provided. You may be facing a long medical road ahead. You or a loved one should also reach out to a truck accident attorney immediately to begin work on your legal case. Waiting could result in the loss of valuable evidence.

How long do I have to sue for a trucking accident?

There is a statute of limitations that dictates how much time you have to file a truck accident claim or lawsuit. In South Carolina, you have three years from the day that you were injured, or should have known you were injured, to file a truck accident lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you lose the right to file a claim forever.

How long will my case take to settle?

It is hard to say how long a truck accident claim will take from start to finish. When there are large sums of money at stake, the insurance company will be far more stringent and may make it more difficult for you to get what you deserve. If you have to go to court, it may take years for your case to work its way through the legal system. It is safe to say you should not expect a quick settlement check for your injuries.
