Truck Accident Attorneys Serving Wilmington and all of Southeastern North Carolina
A truck accident can be devastating. If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash that involves a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, the probability of suffering serious and disabling injuries that can require expensive and lifelong medical treatments is much greater than in a car crash. Filing a lawsuit for a truck accident is also more complex than car crash cases due to the complexity of truck safety regulations, compliance, and industry standards. The truck accident lawyers at Girdwood & Williams aggressively seek fair compensation for your injuries, emotional distress and any financial loss you may have suffered.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Although Truck Accidents are only responsible for about 3% of injuries involving motor vehicles, they cause much greater harm due to the large size and heavy weight compared to an ordinary vehicle. The most common causes of truck accidents are drivers operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, fatigued drivers, unfamiliarity with the area and roads, poorly maintained equipment, and the failure of drivers to take precautions. Importantly, there can and often are multiple defendants and more than one insurance policy in play after a truck causes an accident.
