- Should I hire a lawyer after a South Carolina truck crash?
- Can a lawyer help me fill out paperwork after an accident?
- Should I accept the insurance company's offer after a South Carolina truck accident?
- How much does a truck accident lawyer cost?
Yes. A truck accident is much more complex than an accident between two cars. You aren't just dealing with a truck driver after an accident. You often have to contend with trucking companies and other companies that may be involved with the big rig. One company may own the cab, while another company may own the trailer. Adding to the complexity of these claims is that another company may have loaded the trailer improperly and could share some liability. Keep in mind that each potentially negligent company will have its own insurance carrier. We have experience dealing with the most complex accident claims. We know how to investigate all involved companies. We will take on the burden for you. That way you can focus on what matters most - your recovery.

Should I accept the insurance company's offer after a South Carolina truck accident?
No. Insurance companies often make a quick settlement offer after a truck accident. They do this because they know you're injured. They want you to resolve your case before you know how much it'll cost to fully recover from the accident. As a result, injury victims might lose out on money needed for medical bills, years of physical or emotional therapy, and lost wages for missing work. We know how to negotiate with big truck companies and their insurance providers. After exploring your legal options and only at your discretion, we could even file a lawsuit in the appropriate court on your behalf.
