HawkLaw truck accident lawyers are determined to fight for your right to compensation

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. 

Our truck accident attorneys have a formula to protect your interests, fight for fair compensation, and support your own health and well-being.

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

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.

Common FAQ’s

  • Who’s at fault for your 18-wheeler collision?

    The truck driver who caused the accident is directly at fault for the damages incurred by the collision. Since truck drivers are at work, their employers—the trucking companies—might hold some responsibility for what happened to you. Additionally, you may prove that a third party like a manufacturer or a government agency is also at fault for the accident.

  • How to work with insurance companies?

    When seeking compensation for a semi-truck wreck, insurance companies should provide a settlement for your claim. After your accident, contact the relevant insurance company, but take care not to mention fault, if possible. Claiming that you were partially responsible could hurt your claim. The insurer may send an adjuster to investigate your claim, who will seek evidence, investigate the injuries, and calculate the total costs of your accident. After that, the insurer should make you a fair settlement offer.

  • How do you determine compensation for South Carolina truck accidents?

    The most pressing damages will be your economic damages. These are fairly easy to calculate because they cover the financial losses you’ve suffered, like the cost of your car repairs and your medical care. While future losses may be a little more complicated, they can be estimated based on past expenses or wages. Additionally, you should file for physical, emotional, or psychological damages that include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional trauma to pay for any additional therapy necessary to recover from the accident.
