Truck Accidents Require A Swift And Certain Response

When commercial vehicles are involved in injury accidents, the company that owns the truck will typically put highly skilled lawyers to work finding ways to limit its liability in order to reduce its costs. If the truck driver is employed by a different company, expect another set of attorneys. If the truck manufacturer is at risk for potential defects, add more attorneys to the case. And if the accident was caused by a defective road or dangerous conditions created by construction, a municipality may be involved, which means even more lawyers.

Suffice to say if you are injured or if a family member is killed in a South Carolina truck accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, it is critical to enlist the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who will stand up to the phalanx of lawyers who will likely rush to limit the amount you can recover.

We Work To Recover Full Value For Injured Parties

Robert V. Phillips Attorney at Law advocates for injured parties following all types of motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury claims.

Given the sheer size and weight of 18-wheelers, the injuries that result from truck accidents can be catastrophic. We have the resources necessary to fairly value the true life costs of serious injuries. While it is important to contact a lawyer immediately following an accident, it is equally important to practice patience when determining the amount you wish to seek. It is common for personal injury cases to take a year or more to be resolved. We help our clients recover the full amount they are owed, including compensation for:

  • Current medical costs
  • Rehabilitative services such as long-term physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning power if your injuries are permanent
  • Any cost of chores you are no longer able to perform around your home (lawn care, house cleaning, etc.)
  • Accommodations made to your home for permanent injuries (such as a wheelchair ramp)
  • Mental pain and suffering
  • Permanent disfigurement or impairment
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium for a surviving spouse or child
