You will find that lawyer at Schulz Stephenson Law. Our truck accident lawyer has more than 25 years of experience, which is used to quickly determine whether or not you can seek compensation. Throughout Eastern North Carolina, people turn to us because we are committed to getting compensation for clients who have been involved in accidents between cars and commercial trucks.
Understanding the Complex Rules Truckers Must Follow
Our attorneys understand the complex rules that trucking companies and truck drivers must follow. This is important because, all too often, truck accidents are the result of the driver, or the motor carrier employer’s failure to follow these rules.
These accidents may have been caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to maintain the vehicle
- Failure to inspect the vehicle
- Failure to properly train the driver
- Failure to correctly load the vehicle; or
Any combination of the above
Bringing in the Necessary Experts
The unique aspects of truck accident cases frequently require us to bring in experts. These may include experts who have specific knowledge of the trucking industry, as well as experts in accident reconstruction.
Every detail we gather, on our own or through our experts, will be used to develop a legal strategy that can go beyond negotiation. While we will certainly strive to obtain full and fair compensation outside of the courtroom, we will prepare for trial. We are not afraid to take a case in front of a judge and jury, if that’s what it takes.
Representing Truck Accident Victims on a Contingency Basis
We represent victims on a contingency basis. That means that you will not have to pay anything unless we get compensation for you.
