Why Hire a South Carolina Truck Accident Lawyer?

Why Hire a South Carolina Truck Accident Lawyer? Lawyer explains case to client.

A Truck Accident Can Be Deadly

A  tractor-trailer weighs about 80,000 pounds compared to a passenger vehicle’s weight of an average of 4,000 pounds,  which can lead to a serious truck accident. A car and big rig collision are far more likely to result in serious injuries than two cars colliding.

Morris Law Accident Injury Lawyers: Your Truck Accident Attorneys

You need an experienced attorney if you want to sue the trucking company that employed the truck driver who injured you. Trucking companies carry large insurance policies to cover your injuries, but that doesn’t mean they won’t put up a fight. When it comes to personal injury cases, you are really the underdog without a lawyer. Following are some of the reasons why.

Insurance Companies Are Notorious for Low-Balling

In the aftermath of a truck accident, the insurer gathers information from those involved and examines reports from the police and other evidence. Once they determine who is at fault and how much compensation should be offered to the other party, they send you a letter offering you compensation based on that decision. By signing the initial offer letter, you waive your right to sue in connection with the accident. However, some injuries continue into the future or cost more than initially thought. By signing away your rights to sue, you could end up being handed a big medical bill that you’re responsible for.

The Truck Driver Might Not Be the Only One Liable for Your Injuries

Some truckers are independent operators, while others work for companies. The trucking company may be liable as well as the manufacturer of the vehicle if a defect in the truck caused the accident. The people who loaded the trailer may be liable as well as the mechanics who took care of the truck. The government entity in charge of road maintenance may be liable. You can see what we mean. A truck accident lawyer can determine which party/parties can be held responsible for your injuries, so you can obtain fair compensation. 

A Truck Accident Lawyer Can Recover Non-Economic Damages for You

While an insurance company may cover your medical expenses, they aren’t going to pay for your lost wages from being unable to work or reimburse you for your pain and suffering following a truck accident. A truck accident lawyer can recover those losses for you as well as factor those in the settlement for the future if your trauma is ongoing or you become permanently disabled. Face it. Insurance companies are in business to make money.
