Zealous legal representation for semi-truck accident victims in Columbia, South Carolina

Approximately 500,000 semi-truck accidents occur each year. 4,119 people died in semi-truck accidents for the most recent year reported, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Stewart Law Offices offers truck accident legal services to accident victims and their families throughout Columbia, South Carolina and surrounding areas.

A truck accident attorney can play a pivotal role after a truck accident by:

  • Handling all communication with the insurers, trucking companies, and other parties

  • Thoroughly investigating your claim to determine the causes that contributed to it and all liable parties

  • Conducting an independent investigation and gathering evidence to support your claim rather than depend on the report the trucking company makes with its own biased investigation

  • Taking steps to preserve critical evidence to support your claim, such as data that is electronically stored in the commercial truck

  • Negotiating your medical expenses and notifying medical bill collectors of your accident claim status

  • Accurately assessing the full value of your damages

  • Consulting with accident reconstruction, medical and financial expert witnesses, if necessary

  • Demanding full compensation for your claim

  • Developing a sound legal strategy to maximize your financial recovery

  • Aggressively negotiating for fair compensation from the insurance company

After a truck accident, it is common for insurance companies to quickly deploy a full team to clean up the wreckage and complete an accident report in their favor. It is important that truck accident victims hire their own lawyer who will aggressively protect their right to fair compensation. 

Commercial truck accident lawyers often work with a network of investigators who can help determine liability and damages stemming from commercial accidents. These expert witnesses may include accident reconstructionists, investigators, automotive engineers, medical experts, and financial experts. 

Commercial truck accident lawyers will also focus on your health and refer you to doctors for treatment. Truck accidents tend to cause much more serious injuries than other types of accidents due to the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks. Injuries tend to be more debilitating and may include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries, which may lead to loss of motor function, bladder control, and cognitive abilities

  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia

  • Head and neck injuries

  • Amputations

  • Broken bones and fractures

  • Internal injuries and internal bleeding

  • Severe burn injuries, disfigurement, and scarring

Stewart Law Offices’ dedicated truck accident lawyers fight for compensation for victims, which may include payment for their:

  • Past and future medical expenses, including hospital expenses, surgeries, medication, physical therapy, and rehabilitation

  • Loss of income and reduced earning capacity

  • Pain and suffering 

  • Emotional distress

  • Property damage

If you are ever involved in a truck accident, Stewart Law Offices recommends you take the following steps to protect your health and legal claim:

  • Remain at the scene of the accident at a safe location

  • Call for medical assistance and the police

  • Seek medical attention immediately 

  • Gather as much information about the driver and trucking company as possible

  • Get contact information for any witnesses

  • Document the scene of the accident

  • Provide brief information to the police

  • Don’t talk to anyone else until you have consulted with an experienced truck accident lawyer
