Put Our Team to Work Immediately
It can be difficult to assign liability in a collision with a semi-truck. Our team can help you determine whether your accident occurred because of the driver’s negligence, a design flaw or defect in their truck, or a failure in one of the vehicle’s components, like its tires or windshield wipers.
We can help you identify the negligence that led to the accident and assign liability to the at-fault party based on duty, breach, cause, and damages. To make that critical determination, we will use your recollections of the collision, the crash report, your medical records, and any additional evidence available.
The Semi-Truck Crash Report
In South Carolina, a crash report is required if anyone in the accident was injured or incurred more than $1,000 in damages, according to South Carolina Annotated Code §56-5-1270. This document captures accident details and can prevent a later distortion of the facts.
From it, we may note contact information for the truck driver, his employer, and their insurance provider. We also pull:
- The time and date of the collision
- Vehicle identification information
- Accident scene details
- Witness statements
- The accident’s sequence of events
- Notes from the investigative officer
The crash report may also tell us each driver’s role in the crash, whether traffic citations were issued and for what infractions, and whether distractions or impaired driving may have contributed to the collision.
Like your crash report, your medical records are a crucial part of the evidence we will obtain and present to the at-fault party and their legal or insurance representative. Your medical records will tell us:
- Your accident scene injury analysis
- Your emergency treatments
- The severity of your injuries
- The cost and extent of your treatment
- Your future prognosis and treatment plan
We will also obtain copies of your full range of medical records. Since they may come from several medical facilities and departments, they might be challenging and time-consuming to gather on your own.
To ensure your evidence file is complete, our team may ask for additional items, including vehicle repair estimates or bills. If your vehicle was declared a total loss, we may ask for value estimates from authoritative sources. We may also request photos of:
- Your injuries at various stages
- Your vehicle from a variety of angles
- The at-fault driver’s semi-truck
- The accident scene including debris
The Spartanburg semi-truck accident attorney you work with at our law firm will help build your evidence file so you can feel confident in your case.
