Commercial Truck Accidents

Trucking Accident personal injury lawyerSouth Carolina Commercial Truck Accident Attorney

Commercial Trucks are common on our roads in South Carolina.  Truck drivers often drive for long periods of time over great distances.  Unfortunately, this can lead to accidents on our roadways, often resulting in serious injuries or even death.

Causes of Truck Accidents

  • Defective truck products
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver negligence
  • Negligent hiring and supervision
  • Reckless driving
  • Talking on the phone/texting

There are federal and state laws designed to protect individuals from large commercial trucks traveling on our highways.  Unfortunately, not all truck drivers adhere to these laws, and as a result serious injuries or even death occur to innocent people.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 74,000 people were injured in large truck accidents in 2009.  Of those, 3,380 resulted in fatalities.
