Raleigh Truck Accident Lawyer
Truck accidents can be especially dangerous and unfortunately, in North Carolina they are very common. Because Interstate 95 runs close to our law offices, Bob Whitley has helped people over the past 30 years who have suffered tragic wrongful death and catastrophic injury in tractor-trailer accidents. The attorneys of Whitley Law Firm are here to help you through a catastrophic or fatal truck accident.
Truck accidents are very different from other auto accidents; tractor-trailer jackknifes, tire blowouts, and rollovers can cause tremendous damage because of the truck’s size. Truck underrides, in which a car is completely or partially caught underneath a semi, can also result in horrible injuries. Due to the often serious nature of a trucking accident, we recommend that you consult a Raleigh truck accident lawyer at our offices to see how we can work to protect your legal rights and interests.
Truck Driver Regulations
An especially important aspect of truck accident cases is the many special regulations that truck drivers must follow. Many cases of truck driver negligence involve more than just poor, irresponsible driving; they also involve weight violations, logbook violations, truck driver fatigue, and other special circumstances.
An experienced Raleigh truck accident attorney knows how to investigate the case and discover such special violations, which get change a case dramatically. A truck company’s liability is dependent on many things, and our attorneys have the experience and skill needed to use the law to get you full compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. It is important to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that may apply in addition to North Carolina State law.
Truck Accident Claims
Our firm is not only devoted to helping our clients; we also feel it is important to share as much legal information as we can. In our attorneys’ appearances on WITN Channel 7 Attorneys on Call and on our Helpful Information page, we give out valuable information that can help anyone with their legal struggles.
Perhaps the best way to give you the information you need, however, is to speak with you personally. Call 1-800-598-0456 and we can set up a free initial consultation to discuss your case. If we take you on as a client, we can work on contingency, meaning that we charge no fees until you successfully resolve your case.
At The Whitely Law Firm, we have offices located in Raleigh, Charlotte, Kinston, New Bern, Jacksonville and Winston-Salem to serve the residents of North Carolina with all of their personal injury needs.
