Truck Accident Lawyers in Charlotte
Semi-Trailers Can Cause Severe Injuries and Deaths. Our Attorneys Can Help You Fight Back.
There’s no doubt big rigs are essential to our nation, moving goods from coast to coast every day. However, when trucking companies turn a blind eye to, or even encourage, dangerous driver behaviors, innocent people’s lives can be at stake.
In 2018, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recorded nearly 500,000 crashes that involved large trucks. Around 4,500 of those accidents resulted in fatalities for at least one party. Given the size and weight difference between big rigs and passenger cars, other road users are much more likely to be harmed than truck drivers themselves.
Semi-truck crashes can be life-changing. Those who survive them often do so with severe injuries that impair their ability to work, pursue hobbies, and enjoy their lives. If you are in this situation after a truck accident caused by someone else, we have your back. Lanier Law Group can take on complex cases against big companies or insurers.

The Devastating Consequences of Truck Accidents
An accident between a big truck and a passenger vehicle, the occupants of the latter are much more likely to be injured. Cars may literally get caught on or under a tractor-trailer without its driver noticing. In a collision of any sort, the force generated by a big rig is likely to total any passenger vehicle. Its occupants may suffer serious injuries such as:
- Amputation/Loss of Limb
- Burn Injury
- Fractures and Multiple Fractures
- Head and Facial Injury
- Internal Organ Damage
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury
In the aftermath of a severe injury, most Americans will find themselves with high medical bills they aren’t sure how they will pay. Filing an injury claim against any at-fault parties can help you receive financial relief to help not only with your needs now but also those you may have in the future.

There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.- Diane W.
I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!- Phillip J.
