Charlotte Truck Accidents

A loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds—that’s 40 tons. When that much weight crashes into a car or another vehicle, the damage can be catastrophic.

If you’ve been injured in a devastating collision with a tractor-trailer or another large truck, you may feel powerless, even hopeless. How are you supposed to pay your rent if you can’t work? How will you cover your medical bills? Will anyone hold the negligent party accountable?

Tough and experienced, Morgan & Morgan is here for you. For over 35 years, we have fought For The People, Not The Powerful, recovering over $20 billion for clients across all offices and practice areas.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident, we may be able to help you recover the compensation you need to put your life back together. But don’t wait—North Carolina law stipulates that lawsuits must be filed within three years of the date of the accident. 

Contact us today for a free, no-obligation case review to learn more. It costs nothing upfront to hire us, and we only get paid if we successfully resolve your case.

  • Causes of Truck Accidents

    Most truck accident lawsuits are filed because the negligence of a person or a company caused or contributed to a crash. Here are some common causes of these types of accidents:

    • Driver fatigue
    • Driver under the influence (DUI)
    • Driver falsified logs so they could drive longer or farther than allowed
    • Truck loaded improperly
    • Cargo exceeded the maximum weight limit
    • Failure to obey traffic laws
    • Failure to stop at weigh stations
    • Driver not properly or adequately trained
    • Distracted driving

    A truck accident lawsuit can also be filed because a defective truck or truck part played a role in the crash. This would fall under the category of product liability.

    Additionally, in the tragic event that a loved one died in a truck crash, you can pursue a wrongful death case against the negligent party.

  • How an Attorney Can Help

    Like most types of lawsuits, truck accident cases are complicated and difficult to pursue on your own—especially if you’re trying to heal from the crash. A truck accident lawyer can make your life much easier by taking on the following tasks, among many others:

    • Interviewing eyewitnesses
    • Reviewing police reports and medical records
    • Consulting with medical experts
    • Reconstructing the crash
    • Reviewing the truck’s “black box” data

    In many cases, the trucking company’s insurance will offer the injured party a quick settlement check to prevent them from filing a lawsuit. But this compensation is very often a tiny fraction of the amount that the injured party will actually need to recover from their injuries, especially if they are long-term injuries. That’s why it’s best to always speak with an attorney before signing anything or accepting any type of settlement offer.

  • Truck Accident Compensation

    The costs related to a truck accident injury can be overwhelming, and it may not be immediately apparent just how extensive these damages are. An attorney will seek to recover all expenses related to the crash, including the following:

    • Medical bills (hospital stays, medicine, treatment, physical therapy, etc.)
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of earning capacity (if you can no longer do the job you had before the crash)
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)

    Our lawyers won’t settle for anything less than full, fair compensation for our clients’ lifelong damages.

  • How to Get Started

    To find out if you qualify for a truck accident lawsuit, contact our Charlotte office for a free, no-risk case evaluation. You could be owed compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
