Gaffney, South Carolina Tractor Trailer Accidents

Gaffney, South Carolina is a town more than familiar with transportation and shipping, and in the recent past this has led to a dramatic incline in the prevalence of tractor trailers on Gaffney roads. While this may mark a strengthening of the local economy, it also increases the possibility of devastating accidents. Fully-loaded tractor trailers may weigh as much as forty tons, and truckers are now more than ever feeling the pressure – and subsequent impairing stress and exhaustion – of demanding corporate delivery agendas. Just under 10% of traffic fatalities involves a tractor trailer, as even a less-than-catastrophic collision with one of these enormous vehicles can instantly take the life of the driver of a smaller vehicle.

The insurance claims resulting from accidents involving these trucking companies typically face enormous legal resistance, though, making it very difficult for crash victims and their families to obtain the compensation they need to heal and cope with their changed situation. Trucking companies have great incentive to dodge insurance claims, as every time they pay for an accident the issue is permanently recorded on the group’s commercial transcript, which can jeopardize their marketability to producers who use their shipping services. These high monetary stakes have often led to dirty and even illegal tactics on the part of trucking company management and insurance representatives/adjustors. But even when a trucking group follows the law, they are usually willing to hire massive teams of insurance experts and lawyers, providing them with enormous financial resources to reduce or deny victims’ claims.

Due to the immense damage that can be caused by trucking accidents, truck drivers are held to particularly high safety standards on the road; these standards are regularly breached as drivers rush to complete jobs on time after pressure from higher-ups who care more about staying in the black than protecting motorists. Our South Carolina accident and personal injury lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP can help you deal with the sticky legal situation that is taking on a trucking company for an insurance claim. Let us protect your peace of mind while obtaining the benefits you’re entitled to as compensation for your tractor-trailer-related injuries.

What You Must Know

When accident victims attempt to handle their cases without the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer and deal directly with the insurance companies of the at-fault parties, they assume that an insurance group will be fair and compassionate. Unfortunately, many insurance companies are neither fair nor compassionate, especially when it comes to expensive and often fatal trucking accidents. Regardless of the fact that South Carolina law obligates the at-fault persons, companies, and/or other entities that cause tractor trailer injuries to pay for your medical costs and vehicle repairs, insurance groups have no incentive to cut you a check…or even cut you a break. Their responsibility is a monetary one, and that does not account for the needs of you and your family in the wake of a crash. This is why you need to hire a Grimes Teich Anderson attorney who knows how to handle trucking accidents in the Carolinas.
