If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you need to know your legal options. You may be able to file a personal injury claim if the crash was caused by the negligence of the driver or other parties responsible for the truck or its cargo.

Unfortunately, truck accidents are all too common in North Carolina. In 2014, there were more than 6,800 truck accidents, including 86 fatal crashes and 1,857 injury crashes. There were more than 7,000 truck accidents in 2015, with 85 fatal crashes and more than 2,000 injury crashes.
These accidents occur all over the state, but there is a higher risk of an accident in a large city like Charlotte. Interstate 85 and Interstate 77 cut through the middle of the city, making it one of the main transportation and distribution hubs in the state.

The most important thing to do after being involved in any motor vehicle accident is to receive medical treatment for your injuries. A truck accident can cause severe injuries, including:
If you sustain any severe injuries, you will most likely be transported to a hospital by emergency responders. However, symptoms of some brain or spinal cord injuries may not be immediately apparent, so you should go to a hospital to be looked over by a doctor to determine the extent of your injuries.
If it is possible to do before being transported to the hospital, you should try to collect evidence from the scene, including pictures, contact information for witnesses and victims of the accident and the name of the company on the side of the truck. If friends or family arrive at the scene, ask them to collect this information.
Anything collected in the immediate aftermath of an accident could be a crucial part of any future legal claims you make.
There is a strong possibility you will encounter investigators from the truck company at the scene of the accident. However, you should keep your thoughts and opinions about the accident to yourself. Anything you say could hurt your chances of recovering fair compensation.
After you leave the scene and your injuries are stabilized, contact our Charlotte truck accident lawyers for a free consultation. If you have a legitimate claim, we will begin a comprehensive investigation.
