When A Commercial Vehicle Causes An Accident

Commercial trucks from 18-wheelers to garbage or delivery trucks often weigh much more than typical passenger vehicles. When these heavy vehicles are involved in accidents, the injuries can become much more severe.

Legal options exist to hold negligent drivers and often the companies that employ them responsible. The legal issues in these cases are more complex. Because of this it is important to seek legal advice from a personal injury attorney with experience.

Recovery After A Trucking-Related Injury

At Hendrix & Steigner Attorneys at Law, we help individuals and their families across Lexington County pursue compensation for injuries and deaths caused by these serious wrecks. Our South Carolina law firm is unique — as a mother, father, daughter team, we bring together decades of unique legal experience to help you obtain the compensation you need to move beyond an accident and injury.

The available options will depend on the specifics of your situation. In these cases, a trucking company may have had a pattern of encouraging drivers to stay behind the wheel longer than allowed violating federal hours-of-service regulations. Or cost-cutting moves may have meant that a vehicle was not getting serviced according to a required schedule. And in these cases, multiple parties can be at fault.

We diligently investigate to uncover all available claims. This ensures that you and your family have the resources to pay for medical costs, time away from work during recovery, and also to compensate for your pain and suffering.
