Semi-trucks are so large that they cause significant damage when they are involved in an accident. If the drivers and passengers of the other cars involved in these accidents are not killed, they often suffer severe, life-altering injuries.
Many of these horrific accidents are caused by negligence or reckless driving on the part of the truck driver. That means that victims could recover compensation for all the suffering caused by the accident, whether that suffering is physical, emotional or financial.
Our Bluffton truck accident lawyers have years of experience representing victims of these accidents and recovering the compensation they were entitled. We will thoroughly investigate your claim and defend your rights during this trying time. We offer a free, no obligation consultation to review your legal options.

Types of Truck Accident Claims
Our Bluffton truck accident lawyers represent victims of a variety of truck accidents, from head-on collisions and rollover crashes to rear-end accidents. These accidents are caused by some of the same types of negligence seen in Bluffton car accidents, including:
- Drowsy driving
- Distracted driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Bad weather
- Impaired driving
- Defective or malfunctioning car parts
- Poorly maintained vehicle
Fatigued or drowsy driving is a huge problem with truck drivers because they work long hours and travel great distances. Drivers often use drugs to help them stay awake, putting others on the road at risk.
Semi-trucks are often transporting cargo, which can also play a role in accidents, particularly if the cargo was not loaded or secured properly in the trailer. Trucks could also be transporting hazardous chemicals that pose serious health risks to other drivers if these chemicals are spilled on the road.
If you have been involved in a truck accident caused by any of these forms of negligence, or any others, you should immediately seek legal counsel to review your rights.
The Nye Law Group’s Bluffton truck accident lawyers are committed to providing the highest quality customer service without sacrificing results. We have a long track record of protecting the rights of the injured and obtaining just compensation for the damages our clients have suffered.

Injuries from Truck Accidents
Survivors of truck accidents often face a long road to recovery with no certainty that they will ever get back to full health. Serious injuries from truck accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Nerve damage
If you have suffered these or other injuries in a truck accident, your first priority is to seek medical treatment. In some cases, the sooner you receive treatment the better your prognosis will be.
Make sure you obtain detailed documentation of all of your injuries and treatments as it will be a huge help during the legal process.
Your next step is to seek legal representation to help ensure you have the best opportunity to recover compensation. Every minute counts because trucking companies are quick to send out their representatives and insurance investigators to avoid liability for the accident.

Investigating the Accident
Our Bluffton truck accident lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to find out how negligence contributed to your accident. We will:
- Review medical records from before and after the accident to show that your injuries were caused by the accident.
- Interview any witnesses to the accident.
- Review video footage and “black box” data from the truck, if available.
- Speak to accident reconstruction experts to develop a clear picture of how the accident occurred.
- Review the driving record of the truck driver.
Our analysis will provide evidence of who is liable for the accident so we know who to file a lawsuit against. One or multiple parties could be responsible for the accident, including:
- The driver
- The trucking company
- The company responsible for loading the cargo
- The company that employs the driver
- The manufacturer of the truck
Our Bluffton truck accident lawyers have extensive knowledge of the responsibilities of these different entities and how to establish that they were liable for the accident. We will bring all of our knowledge to your claim so that you have a greater likelihood of obtaining compensation.
