Truck Accidents


North Carolina is one of only a few remaining states that follows the common law doctrine of “contributory negligence.” Under this law, if a victim of truck crashes (or any other accident) is proven to be even 1% at fault for the accident, then the victim will be unable to collect any damages. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another driver in a truck accident, it is very likely that the responsible party’s insurance company will attempt to place partial responsibility for the accident on you—therefore entitling you to zero damages under the doctrine of contributory negligence.

At Everett Law Firm, P.A., in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we will listen attentively to your case, discuss your options, and work with you to determine the appropriate course of action in your trucking accident injury claim. Contact us today to arrange a consultation with an attorney you can trust.

There is usually substantial insurance coverage for truck drivers involved in truck crashes, which means the insurance companies will fight even harder to protect their interests and their money. Our attorneys will communicate directly with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure your interests are protected and to prevent their lawyers and adjusters from putting words in your mouth.

Our firm will perform a thorough evaluation and investigation into the viability of your claim. We will collect the bills and records relating to your claim, assist you in documenting your lost wages, and provide you with the information and guidance necessary to determine the value and merits of your case. We will then fight vigorously for the fair and just compensation of the losses you and your family suffered due to the negligence of the other driver.

When necessary, we will bring in accident reconstructionists, mechanical engineers, and other experts to evaluate the circumstances surrounding truck crashes and injuries to support our claim against the other driver’s insurance company.

Truck crashes are common on the major highways in this area. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury in an accident on any of the roads or highways throughout the state of North Carolina, we can help.

Our excellent staff and knowledgeable attorneys are committed to working diligently on behalf of our clients’ best interests. To discuss the individual circumstances of your truck accident personal injury claim, please contact Everett Law Firm, P.A. today.
