South Carolina Trucking Accidents
A complex web of local, state, and federal regulations governs the commercial trucking industry in the United States. There are rules about how trucks can be loaded, how cargo must be secured, where trucks can and cannot drive, how the vehicles must be maintained, how much they can carry, how long a driver can drive before they must stop to rest, and how much rest they have to take when they take it.
Truck drivers and trucking companies often try to make more money by not following the rules. Our practice is not about cutting corners and making quick settlements; it is about doing our very best in each and every case.
Call 843-377-1700 and put decades of litigation experience on your side.
With the number of shipping ports and Interstate highways in South Carolina, trucking accidents are a common occurrence in our state.
At the Rosen Law Firm, we have seen the catastrophic damage that truck wreck accidents cause to innocent people and families on too many occasions. We have also been fortunate enough to be able to help many of them move beyond the devastation and recover fair compensation for their losses. Managed by firm partner Susan Rosen, an attorney with more than 25 years of experience litigating difficult cases, our practice includes cases involving:
- Alcohol or drug impairment
- Sleep deprivation/drowsy driving
- Improperly secured cargo loads
- Brake failure/mechanical failure
- Tire blowout
- Dangerous road design
- "Soft shoulder" accidents
- Driving too fast or recklessly
Because any truck accident that results in catastrophic or fatal injuries is likely to be fought tooth-and-nail by the insurance company involved, it is especially important for truck accident victims or their families to take prompt action. Our lawyers will work quickly to document the scene, locate and interview witnesses, and fight the insurance company's attempts to protect their interests at the expense of yours.
