Did you know that a loaded tractor trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds? That’s twenty times the weight of the average passenger car. Did you know there is no set maximum age for a commercial truck driver? The most catastrophic cases we see often involve tractor trailers. With our office located just minutes from I-26 and I-85, we travel interstate highways that sometimes seem dominated by semi-trucks. Most are well maintained and driven by responsible commercial truck drivers that follow the rules and provide a service we all rely on. Unfortunately, when that isn’t the case, the destruction resulting from a collision with an 18-wheeler often results in life changing injuries or death.
At K.D. Trial Lawyers we have recovered millions of dollars for clients for personal injury and wrongful death caused by negligent trucking companies and their drivers*. We know the law and we know what needs to be done to investigate, preserve evidence, and litigate tractor trailer accidents.
If you or a family member are harmed as the result of an accident with a commercial vehicle, or a tractor trailer you need a trucking lawyer familiar with regulations issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and who has the experience and resources to hire the experts necessary to establish liability and recover compensation from those responsible. Even when the cause of the accident is not initially clear, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. We realize that this is often the last thing on someone’s mind when unexpectedly faced with a life changing accident, but failing to retain qualified counsel at the outset can have tragic consequences.
We at K.D. Trial Lawyers know what to do. We are here to help. To learn more about our firm and our tractor trailer lawyers visit our website at www.spartanlaw.com or call us at (864) 660-0465.
*Any result the lawyer or law firm might have achieved on behalf of one client in one matter does not necessarily indicate similar results can be obtained for other clients.
