With many car accidents along I-85 and other major highways in South Carolina, commercial trucks will most likely be involved in some collisions. Regulated closely by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the trucking company’s log records and GPS tracking records are critically important to access. So, for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) collisions, more tracking and compliance data is usually available.
Driver fatigue, unsafe loads, neglected maintenance of vehicles, improper training and supervision of commercial drivers are all potential hazards on South Carolina roads. Car accident lawyers James Hardy Price and Powers Price represent clients who were involved in automobile accidents in Greenville and surrounding areas in Upstate South Carolina. We leave no stone unturned in finding answers to the cause and contributing factors of a serious tractor-trailer accident.
In such crashes, the truck drivers (or bus drivers, which are also CMVs) may not have been at fault. In instances where this is the case, our worker’s compensation lawyers have helped injured workers who were the drivers of the 18-wheeler or other heavy truck when another driver caused a jackknife truck accident or other road crash.
If an at-fault big rig truck hits your vehicle, your need a truck accident attorney at work on that case ASAP. Physical evidence at the accident scene will disappear soon after the crash, so getting your experts to survey the scene with a Total Station accident reconstruction tool or drone (or both) is vitally important.
