North Carolina is a main crossroads for many major state highways including several interstates. Large 18-wheelers, fuel trucks, dump trucks, gravel trucks and logging trucks pose risk of serious and even fatal injury to unsuspecting motorists. If you were injured in a trucking accident, contact me for a free initial consultation about your case.
My firm, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, understands the differences between motor vehicle and trucking accidents. A whole range of federal and state regulations concerning issues like insurance, driver rest breaks, vehicle loads, brakes, tires, truck inspections, and vehicle maintenance can apply to trucking companies and their drivers.
I employ experts that will begin the investigation of a trucking accident right away. Trucking companies and their insurance providers face serious liability risks.. In order to reduce potential liability, they investigate accident scenes quickly. Likewise it is important to quickly investigate your case soon after your accident in order to preserve valuable evidence.
It is no surprise that trucking accidents, can result in devastating injuries. We concentrate on getting fair compensation that truly reflects the extent of your injuries either by a court verdict or an out-of-court settlement. Monetary damages should fix what can be fixed, help what can be helped, and make up for that which cannot be fixed or helped.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating. Some times people need life-long medical care. Many people need 24 hour specialized care, special adaptations to their homes and cars and many months and perhaps years of therapy and rehabilitation. It is important to realize that any settlement or judgement must provide for care over a lifetime. Some types of spinal cord injuries that my firm handles include: Paralysis, quadriplegia (paralysis of all 4 limbs), paraplegia (paralysis of both legs), and hemiplegia (paralysis on one side of the body); Nerve damage to the neck, mid-back or low back; Bulging or herniated discs; chronic pain; loss of bladder and bowel function; psychological affects such as depression.
