      Everyone there was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. My car was totaled, and I was a little intimidated talking with a couple of other lawyers in Greenville. But with Christian and Christian, not only did they answer my questions, but they did so in a way that made what could have been a hectic situation, easy. Overall, an excellent experience with high quality lawyers who truly go above and beyond and really try to get you the results or answers you need.

      I met Josh like 4 years ago when my Son was injured at Daycare. He was very concerned about the well being of my Child and Me. Very Understanding Professional and Just a great Staff. If You need a Lawyer that’s all about YOU this is the Place. I just closed a Case on 6/23/2021 from a injury on a Property. They handled everything because no one else would help Me. I’m forever grateful for Your hard Work and Time. Once again Thank You Josh and Sally.

      My husband was referred to this law firm from another lawyer after his mother passed away while residing in a nursing home. Matt took on his case and we are pleased with how everything turned out. It took a long, long time to finally settle, but it was worth the wait. The staff here is friendly and I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance.

      I was referred to Harold by a family friend, and I couldn’t be happier. He took the time to listen to my case, answered all my questions and truly treated me like a friend not a client. His knowledge of medical malpractice is priceless he actually successfully won, one of the first medical malpractice cases in Greenville County.

      Our Truck Accident Lawyers Can Fight For You

      Trucks cause nearly 500,000 accidents in the United States annually. And when it comes to truck accidents, 18-wheelers are notorious for leaving the most devastating injuries in their wake, causing 3,986 deaths in 2016 alone. Although truck drivers must go through certification processes, there are hundreds of cases where negligent 18-wheeler truck drivers have altered lives forever.

      The risk of a truck accident is high on a national level, but South Carolinians face a higher risk than most. According to an annual report that used data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, careless driving and speeding make South Carolina one of the most dangerous states in which to drive.

      Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Truck Accidents

      Accidents can be caused by a range of factors, but the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration notes that there are patterns behind crashes involving large trucks. Some of the most common include speeding, unfamiliarity with the roadway, and driver fatigue, which collectively make up over 58% of truck crashes. It is the responsibility of the trucking company to make sure their employees are well prepared for the road and that they hold an active Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). If the company has failed to do this, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.

      Here are some additional accident causes that can entitle you to personal injury damages:

      • Pressure from the carrier: Unfortunately, many trucking companies place extreme pressure on their drivers to meet deadlines and skip checkpoints. In these cases, driver fatigue is the inevitable result, and can lead to tragedies for everyone involved.
      • Vehicle failure: As with any vehicle, 18-wheeler trucks are vulnerable to maintenance issues. The carrier is responsible for ensuring the truck is ready for the road, and if they have failed to perform necessary safety checks, our team will work to protect your rights as a driver.
      • Equipment failure: Commercial vehicles like 18-wheelers are difficult to maneuver on a good day, weighing in at over 80,000 pounds and requiring 40% more time to stop than the average car. It should come as no surprise then that equipment failure and brake problems are some of the most common causes of truck accidents.
      • Illegal maneuvers: While this is one of the less frequent causes of 18-wheeler crashes, if a driver performs an illegal maneuver that lead to an accident, they must be held accountable.
      • If you believe any of the factors listed above caused your accident, don’t hesitate to contact our team today. Our skilled truck accident attorneys believe in compassionate representation and in protecting our clients from further suffering. We want to ensure you receive maximum compensation for your trauma.
