What Causes Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents are often caused by negligence. To recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages, you must prove that the other party's negligence directly caused or contributed to the accident.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Tailgating
  • Improper lane changes
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Defective truck parts
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Vehicle defects
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Unsafe roadways

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, it is important to determine liability. In some cases, this is relatively straightforward and is the responsibility of the truck driver. However, in many cases, the trucking company, truck manufacturer, cargo loader, or other third party may be liable for the accident.

Some potentially liable parties in a truck accident case include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The company that loaded the truck's cargo
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The manufacturer of a defective truck part

Because truck accident cases can be complex, it is important that you work with an experienced attorney who can help you determine liability and build a strong case on your behalf.

How Can a Fayetteville Truck Accident Lawyer Help Me?

After a truck accident, the trucking company and its insurance provider will immediately begin working to minimize your claim. It is not uncommon for these parties to send their own investigators to the scene of the accident in an attempt to gather evidence and build a case against you. In order to level the playing field, it is important that you work with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Fayetteville.

At Lanier Law Group, P.A., we can handle all aspects of your case while you focus on recovering from your injuries. We will gather evidence, interview witnesses, consult with experts, calculate your damages, and build a strong case on your behalf. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and, if necessary, we are prepared to take your case to trial.

Our firm can help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

If you were involved in a truck accident in Fayetteville, Lumberton, or the surrounding areas, our attorneys are here to help. We understand the many challenges you are facing, and we are prepared to fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    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.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    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!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
