The most common causes of 18-wheeler truck crashes in South Carolina are deemed preventable, but motorists in other vehicles often have little to no control over whether a semi-truck crashes into their vehicle, causing bodily harm. It’s important to understand how and why these accidents occur, and what victims of large truck accidents can do to protect their own interests in the aftermath.

An accident can happen at any time, and the causes can vary widely. To file your South Carolina truck wreck claim, you need to prove the cause to determine what exactly happened and who’s at fault.
If you’re not sure what caused your commercial truck crash, our attorneys can help. We’ll investigate the evidence and find the cause, which might be one of the following problems:
Tractor-trailer drivers have a set time to work before they must take a break. However, their employers might provide an incentive for finishing routes earlier. This means there are truckers who have been on the road for far too long. That can lead to more mistakes and slower reaction times.
Driving while intoxicated is already dangerous. When semi-truck drivers are under the influence with a risk of jackknifing, they place even more lives in danger. Truckers who cause an accident while under the influence deserve to be held accountable for compensation
While an 18-wheeler is less vulnerable than other vehicles to road hazards like potholes, road damages can cause an accident. When a government road authority doesn’t ensure drivers’ safety, victims can seek compensation
Sometimes, products are defective and shoddy manufacturing can cause those products to break down at the most dangerous of times. When truck parts and materials are defective, or parts in any other vehicle, those defections can result in a serious accident in which you can hold the manufacturer responsible for your injuries, and include them in a claim or civil lawsuit.

Following the first meeting, your dedicated personal injury lawyer will launch your case. We have an investigative team with years of experience identifying what happened, recreating the incident, and collecting any evidence that helps with your case. As a digital-first law firm, you’ll be able to check in on our findings and see how your case is progressing.
Once we have what we need to build a case for your claim, we will contact the insurance company or at-fault party and attempt to negotiate a fair and just compensation for your injuries. Our goal is to do Right By You and agree on a fair and just settlement for your damages, pain, and suffering. If an acceptable settlement can’t be reached, a HawkLaw trial lawyer will advise you about the option of going to court.
