Truck Accident Attorneys in Charleston, South Carolina

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.

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. Whether a semi, tractor-trailer, big rig, or eighteen-wheeler, or other massive truck, the damage that can be done when one of these vehicles hits a passenger vehicle can be devastating.

If you have been injured in a truck accident on a highway in South Carolina, such as I-95, I-20, I-26, I-77, I-85, I-385 or I-526, or another roadway, call us now at 843-377-1700 and put decades of litigation experience on your side.

Experienced and Trusted Truck Wreck Representation

Managed by firm partner Susan Rosen, an attorney with more than 25 years of experience litigating difficult cases, our semi truck accident practice includes cases involving:

  • Driver negligence - Any intentional or unintentional actions taken by a driver may cause serious accidents and injuries. We are aggressive in holding truck drivers responsible for their negligence, including those who engaged in the following situations:
    • Taking drugs or using alcohol while driving, leaving them impaired
    • Falling asleep at the wheel or driving while drowsy
    • Driving too fast or recklessly driving the truck
  • Issues with cargo - Whether a driver or someone at another facility supervised the loading of cargo, truck cargo is expected to be secured and loaded properly at all times. We handle the following types of cases involving cargo:
    • Improperly secured cargo loads, leading to falling debris
    • Overloaded cargo
    • Unbalanced cargo
  • Improper truck maintenance or truck defects - When a truck is not properly maintained or defects occur, other drivers on the road are at risk. This includes:
    • Brake failure/mechanical failure
    • Tire blowouts
    • Safety equipment failure
  • Other accident causes - Regardless of the situation that caused your vehicle and a truck to collide, our firm can investigate. We have represented clients who have been injured in truck accident cases involving:
    • Dangerous road design
    • "Soft shoulder" accidents

Standing Up for the Rights of Semi-Truck Accident Victims

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 its interests at the expense of yours.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 he or she must stop to rest, and how much rest he or she has to take when he or she takes it. If a driver is in violation of any of these regulations, he or she is liable.
