North Charleston Truck Accident Lawyer

Experienced South Carolina personal injury lawyers help accident victims hold negligent truck drivers responsible

Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles are critical to the nation’s economy. While the majority of truck drivers are professionals who take their responsibilities seriously, that is unfortunately not the case for them all. In fact, each year, there are over 6,000 South Carolina truck accidents. On average, nearly 100 of these accidents will result in one or more fatalities, and another 2,000 in some type of serious injury.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in semi-truck accidents, helping them recover fair compensation for what they have been through. With over 200 years of combined experience, we can confidently advise you about your options and help you pursue a claim for compensation.

Establishing Liability in a North Charleston Truck Accident

Truck drivers, like all other motorists, have a legal obligation to drive safely and responsibly. When a truck driver’s negligence causes a major accident, anyone injured in that accident can pursue a claim against the negligent driver. To succeed in a North Charleston truck accident lawsuit, an injury victim must be able to show that the truck driver:

1.) Owed the accident victim a duty of care;
2.) Violated that duty of care through some action or failure to act; and
3.) Caused the accident victim to suffer some type of legally recognizable injury.

Under the theory of vicarious liability, a truck driver’s employer may also be on the hook for an accident victim’s damages. However, holding employers, vehicle manufacturers, and other parties liable in a North Charleston truck accident can be challenging. Anyone considering bringing a personal injury claim after a truck crash should consult with an experienced attorney.

Damages in North Charleston Truck Wreck Cases

The effects that a major accident can have on a person’s life cannot be overstated. Initially, an accident victim’s focus will necessarily be on their physical recovery. However, once the physical injuries have healed, there are other challenges and expenses on the road to recovery.

Those accident victims who are successful in showing that a negligent truck driver was responsible for their injuries may be able to recover money for both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages:

• Past medical bills
• Future medical expenses
• Lost wages
• Decrease in earning capacity

Non-Economic Damages:

• Pain and suffering
• Mental anguish
• Humiliation
• Disfigurement
• Loss of reputation
• Emotional distress
• Loss of enjoyment of life
• Physical impairment
• Inconvenience
• Loss of consortium (involving a spousal relationship)
• Loss of society and companionship (involving a relationship with others)

The compensation available to an accident victim through a North Charleston truck accident case varies on a case-by-case basis. Accident victims should reach out to a dedicated personal injury lawyer for help understanding their rights.
