When driving on the highways and interstates in South Carolina, you may encounter dozens of huge commercial trucks every day. While most truck operators do a good job of behaving safely and watching out for other drivers, mistakes do occur, and sometimes with devastating results.
With these huge vehicles, a simple mistake can cause a loss of control in almost no time. If you suffer injuries in this type of accident, a Myrtle Beach commercial truck accident lawyer with Hammack Law Firm is ready to work for you. We will seek to recover a monetary settlement that can give you financial peace of mind. You can learn more about your legal options during a free consultation today.
We Will Work Toward the Financial Settlement You are Due
When we can show that the truck driver or another liable party behaved negligently, it gives you the ability to seek damages for your injuries and the way your life changes. The financial award you could win will fit into various categories. Your case’s circumstances will determine how much you could win in each category.
Other liable parties in a truck accident case could include:
- The truck driver’s employer
- The truck’s manufacturer
- The crew responsible for maintaining and repairing the truck
- The company hired to load the truck’s cargo
Truck cases can involve multiple parties, making these cases more complex. We will identify each party in your case and pursue damages from each one.
Covering Your Accident’s Medical Costs
After the truck driver hits you, you may need to travel to the hospital in an ambulance to receive emergency care. You also may choose to see a doctor on your own a day or two after the crash. Either way, you will have medical bills from the accident.
You should not have to pay these costs out of your pocket when the truck driver caused them with their negligence. Our team can help you seek reimbursement for the costs you have immediately after the crash, as well as an estimate of medical costs you will have in the future.
Covering the Time You Missed at Work
Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you almost certainly missed some time at work. With relatively minor injuries, you may only miss a couple of weeks. With life-altering injuries, you may never be able to work again.
We will fight hard to make sure the insurance company understands your outlook regarding work. We will seek the full amount of compensation that you are owed.
Covering Your Reduced Quality of Life
After an injurious accident with a truck in Myrtle Beach, you may end up with some injuries that never heal fully, unfortunately. The huge size of a big-rig truck can cause significant health problems to passengers in the other cars after a crash.
Should you now be unable to enjoy the same activities you did with your family before your injuries, you could receive a financial award to reimburse you for this and other non-financial, life-altering damages.
Covering Your Pain and Suffering
If you have ongoing pain and suffering related to your injuries after the accident, you could also be compensated for this. The pain and suffering judgment could be quite large, depending on the circumstances in your case.
