Recover The Full Amount You Deserve Following A North Carolina Truck Accident

When commercial vehicles are involved in injury accidents, companies respond quickly and aggressively to protect their interests. Because there may be a lot at stake, companies often send an investigator to the scene of the accident to immediately begin gathering their own set of facts — facts that may used to minimize their responsibility.

If you or a loved one is injured in accident involving a commercial vehicle, it is important to enlist the services of an experienced truck accident attorney who can protect your interests as aggressively as trucking companies protect theirs. At The Law Office of Christopher G. Lewis, P.A., I know the tactics that trucking companies use to minimize their responsibility when accidents occur and how to respond to them. My previous experience working with an insurance defense firm benefits the injured parties that I now represent.

There Are A Lot Of Moving Parts In Truck Accidents — Literally

Today's tractor-trailer trucks are sophisticated machines that require extensive maintenance to keep them safe and running properly. Drivers must complete extensive training before they can get behind the wheel of these big rigs. If you are injured in a tractor-trailer accident, I will conduct a thorough investigation of the maintenance records as well as the training and the driving record of the truck operator.

Because I take personal injury accidents on a contingency fee basis, there are no upfront costs and you will only pay an attorney fee if I recover a financial settlement or judgment for you.

Recovering What You Deserve If You Suffer Catastrophic Injuries

Another important reason to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer following a truck accident is that the injuries caused by these accidents are often severe. If you or a loved one suffers a catastrophic injury such as a traumatic brain injury, paralysis or severe burns that leave permanent scarring, accurately assessing the amount you should recover is complex. If a family member is killed in a truck accident, you may be able to recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Here again, my experience working both sides of injury cases provides me with valuable insights into how to properly value the amount that should be recovered.

I invite you to contact me if you or a loved one is injured in a truck accident that was caused by someone else's negligence.
