Truck Accident Lawyers In North Carolina
One of our recent truck accident cases provides a telling example of how insurance companies view the victims. In this case, the truck driver fell asleep and ran into the back of our client’s car, seriously injuring him and killing a family member who was a passenger. The trucking company’s insurance adjuster arrived to the scene soon after the accident and, upon learning there was a fatality, uttered an expletive, went to his car and started making phone calls.
The insurance industry plays a vicious game, and the goal of this game in any serious accident case to minimize or eliminate what they pay out.

Protecting Your Rights And Interests
Trucking companies train their drivers in the use of what they call an “accident reconstruction kit.” Following a truck accident, the driver is instructed to deny fault and protect the company. Insurance company investigators are called immediately and often arrive while the injured are being transported to emergency rooms.
As soon as you retain our law firm to represent you, our lawyers will interview witnesses and preserve evidence such as the truck’s black box, driver logbooks, drug testing records and information about the driver’s background.
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means that if the truck driver’s insurance company can prove that you were partially at fault for the accident, you will not be able to recover any compensation for your damages. For this reason, you should never say anything to the trucking company’s insurance company until you have first spoken with an attorney.
