Because Charleston is a large port city, countless semis and other large trucks travel local roads, including I-26, I-526 and Highway 17. If you have been injured by a truck on a South Carolina interstate, or anywhere in the Lowcountry, we can help you recover compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
Semi, Tractor-Trailer And Truck Accidents
Accidents caused by trucks and other commercial vehicles are more complex than accidents between two passenger vehicles. The transportation company’s insurance carrier will have a team of lawyers and adjusters on the scene almost immediately. They will fight hard to deny liability for the accident, even if that means destroying evidence.
You need an attorney on your side as soon as possible. At CHSA Law, we have the experience to protect your interests in trucking accident cases. With our knowledge of the auto insurance industry, we have an advantage in vehicle accident cases.
Trucking injuries tend to be catastrophic or fatal, and may include:
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Entrapment and crush injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
These types of injuries may result in temporary or permanent disability, or wrongful death. Victims and their families will need significant compensation for expenses such as long-term medical care, medical equipment, modifications to their home and vehicles, and possibly in-home care. If the injury victims cannot return to work, they will need compensation for the loss of wages and benefits. Surviving family members may also recover damages for funeral costs and the personal loss of a loved one.
