Truck Accident Attorney in Raleigh
You've probably heard or read about it more than once in your life—the importance of hiring a Raleigh truck accident lawyer to represent you or a loved one who has been involved in such an accident. That's because North Carolina is one of the few States that follow contributory negligence laws regarding traffic accidents.
What this means is that if you are found to be at fault for the accident, even by one perfect, you'll lose your right to recover damages. And, as you would expect, insurance companies tend to count on this law to avoid liability. They know they don't have to convince the judge or jury that their client is entirely blameless; they only need to show that you were partly at fault.
That's why you need a powerful legal team in your corner. The contributory negligence law aside, you need a lawyer who understands your pain and genuinely wants —and has the resources— to fight for you.
You've come to the right place if that's what you're looking for.

What Steps Should I Take After a Truck Accident?
After a truck accident, your first step should be to ensure your safety and health. Call emergency services if anyone is injured. At the same time, document the scene by taking photos of the vehicles, road conditions, and any relevant signage. Exchange information with the other parties involved, including names, contact details, and insurance information. Even if you feel you're not seriously injured, seek medical attention within 72 hours of the accident, as some serious injuries may not be immediately apparent. Finally, contact Morgan and Morgan for a free, no-obligation case evaluation by a truck accident expert from our team.
The Insurance Company Claims I'm at Fault. What Are My Legal Options?
Don't listen to what the insurance company claims. Nine times out of ten, they use this tactic to avoid liability or discourage claimants from proceeding with the case.
Consulting with an attorney who specializes in truck accidents can provide you with a clear understanding of your legal position and the best course of action. An attorney can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, challenge their assessment of fault, and, if necessary, represent you in front of a judge or jury to hold the other party accountable.
Can I Trust the Insurance Company to Offer a Fair Settlement?
Insurance companies are legally obligated to settle claims. Otherwise, they'll be acting out of faith, something we take very seriously to the point of having a team of attorneys who only handle bad faith insurance claims.
That said, don't forget that insurance companies are also businesses focused on minimizing their payouts. Therefore, the initial settlement offer might not fully cover all your damages and needs, and that's why you should always have an attorney review any settlement offers.
Can I Provide the Insurance Company With a Recorded Statement?
That's not advisable, either, especially without consulting a lawyer. Keep in mind that anything you say can be used to assess your claim and potentially minimize your settlement. Remember, you are not obligated to provide a recorded statement immediately and can request time to prepare and seek legal advice.
