South Carolina Truck Accidents

Helping the Injured Recover the Compensation They Deserve Truck Accident

While the average passenger vehicle weighs around 4,000 lbs., a fully loaded 18 wheeler can weigh 80,000 lbs. or more, according to the Truckers Report. It is no wonder that occupants of passenger vehicles involved in traffic collisions with large trucks often suffer serious or fatal injuries.

If you have been injured in a trucking accident, your best course of action is to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Accidents involving commercial vehicles can be complex and may involve multiple liable parties. Large trucking companies and insurance companies have teams of lawyers working to minimize the money they pay out in claims. You need a dedicated and knowledgeable legal advocate to protect your rights and to fight for the compensation you are entitled to receive.

At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, we focus our practice primarily on injury cases. Our founding attorney has been helping injury victims for over 20 years and our firm has helped thousands of injured people to obtain fair compensation for their injuries.

Who is Liable for Your Damages in a Semi-Truck Accident?

Trucking accident claims can be very legally complex. Commercial vehicles operate under different regulations than privately owned vehicles. In filing your trucking accident claim, your accident attorney may need to look beyond state law to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

Before filing a claim, it is important to investigate thoroughly to determine which parties are liable for your injuries. In addition to experienced attorneys and support staff, our firm employs case investigators and we use technology that is typically found only in the larger law firms.

In an accident with a large truck or commercial vehicle, there are various possible responsible parties, depending on the circumstances in your particular case. Possibilities may include:

  • The driver and owner of the vehicle
  • A company that leases the vehicle from the owner and employs the driver
  • A different company that owns the trailer
  • A different company that leases the trailer from the owner
  • The owner of the cargo being shipped
  • The company that arranged the shipping
