There are 19 Interstate Highways — eight primary and 11 auxiliary — that exist entirely or partially in the state of North Carolina, which places heavy commercial truck traffic on our roadways each day.

Our dedicated North Carolina truck accident attorneys at David W. Martin Law Group know that the sheer size difference between a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle is not only intimidating but can lead to devastating crashes when negligence is a factor.

That could mean severe crashes that cause injuries that require extended recovery time, permanent disabilities that change our clients’ lives, and the tragic loss of loved ones without notice.

If you or someone you love has been impacted by a truck accident in North Carolina, we want to help you hold the liable party, or a combination of parties, accountable for your full financial recovery needs.

Who is Responsible for Semi-Truck Accidents in North Carolina?

Last year alone, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicle’s Traffic Crash Facts reported nearly 4,800 semi-truck crashes that caused 1,109 injuries and 61 fatalities.

In North Carolina and across the country, there may be multiple parties who can be held liable for these catastrophic crashes.

Typically, the first person on that list is the truck driver.

Common types of truck driver negligence that lead to collisions in North Carolina include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving distracted
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Violating Hours of Service Regulations

The second potentially liable party may be the trucking company itself.

That includes negligent actions or inaction related to:

  • Hiring inexperienced drivers and/or failing to professionally train them
  • Failing to ensure drivers follow all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrationguidelines
  • Improperly running background checks
  • Failing to require adequate medical exams

Finally, since the trucking industry has so many moving parts, there are multiple third parties who may be partly or wholly responsible for truck collisions in North Carolina.

They may include:

  • Negligent cargo loaders
  • Manufacturing companies that produce defective truck parts
  • Maintenance crews who fail to service the trucks properly

At the David W. Martin Law Group, our North Carolina truck accident attorneys will investigate your collision by partnering with skilled accident reconstruction and engineering specialists who will pinpoint the cause of the crash, so we can pursue each liable party’s insurance coverage for your complete financial recovery needs.
