Truck Accident Attorneys in Charleston

Truck accidents are known to cause some of the worst injuries on our roads in Charleston. These are not the kind of injuries that require only a few trips to the doctor; they could take years to recover. We’ve even seen cases where the injured never fully recover and yet they continually have to deal with expensive treatment and other expenses deriving from such accidents.  

Injuries aside, serious accidents can lead to fatalities. One report by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety revealed that there were at least 42 truck accident fatalities in the state in 2021 alone. Sadly, the vast majority of these accidents happen due to someone else’s negligence.

If you were injured in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, a Charleston truck accident lawyer from Morgan and Morgan might be able to fight for you. Fill out our free case evaluation form today to get started.

Morgan & Morgan

  • Can I Sue the Truck Driver's Employer After an Accident?

    Yes, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the truck driver’s employer, especially if they played a role in the accident. Keep in mind that they don’t have to be actively involved (such as driving the truck). Instances such as negligent hiring and failure to maintain the truck per the state’s standards could warrant a lawsuit.

  • What If the Trucking Company is Based Outside of Charleston?

    Even if the trucking company is based elsewhere, you may still be able to pursue a claim in Charleston if the accident occurred there. Your truck accident attorney will look into the unique circumstances of your case and determine how best you should proceed.

  • Are Commercial Trucks Subject to Specific Regulations in Charleston?

    Commercial trucks nationwide, including those in Charleston, must adhere to federal regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These laws govern aspects like hours of service and maintenance standards. If violated, the injured may have legal grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the at-fault party.

  • What Compensation Can I Seek for a Truck Accident?

    Each case has its own particularities. From our experience handling these cases, we’ve helped the injured seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, vehicle damage, pain and suffering, and more. 

  • Should I Negotiate Directly with the Trucking Company's Insurance After an Accident?

    That’s never a good idea. It's advisable to consult with an attorney first, to find out if the other party is playing fair. Nine times out of ten, it’s usually a case of the insurance company trying to lowball the claimant or unfairly blame them for the accident.

  • How Can I Prove the Truck Driver Was at Fault in Charleston?

    That’s where the importance of hiring an injury firm with access to powerful legal resources, like Morgan and Morgan, comes in. Proving fault involves gathering evidence like driver logbooks, truck maintenance records, eyewitness testimonies, expert opinions, and accident reconstruction reports, all of which require powerful resources our attorneys have access to. 

  • Contact a Truck Accident Specialist In Charleston

    Truck accident cases are not unidirectional; they can take many twists and turns further down the road. The most important step is to find out if your claim is valid in the first place. That makes it easier to decide whether taking legal action is advisable. Contact us today to get your free case review.
