Truck accidents can cause brain damage and many other types of injuries. This, in turn, can inflict physical, emotional, and financial hardship on the accident victim and their family.
At our law firm, we believe that truck accident victims should not have to pay for damage done by another party. We are not afraid to face the liable party’s insurance company and fight for the compensation you deserve.
What Can Your Law Office do for Me After Being Injured in a Truck Accident?
If you are considering taking legal action after a truck accident, it is important to know that you do not have to do so alone. Our law firm is willing to take prompt, bold action against the party or parties responsible for your truck accident injuries. This includes:
- Gathering evidence: We will check police reports, request your medical records, and find out if anyone witnessed your accident.
- Confronting the insurance company: We will notify the liable party on your behalf and negotiate with their insurance company for a fair settlement.
- Advocating for you in the courtroom: While a settlement would get you your money faster, we are not afraid to go to trial on your behalf if the insurer does not offer a fair amount.
- Making ourselves available to you: Have a question or want to report a new development? We are always here to address your concerns.

What Types of Damages Can Victims of Truck Accidents Pursue?
A traumatic brain injury can impact every aspect of your life, especially if it is serious and causes permanent damage. Truck accidents can easily lead to severe, even fatal injuries. For example, a truck accident in Beaufort County, South Carolina, in September 2021 killed the truck driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt.
You can seek compensation for many different types of truck accident injuries, including but not limited to:
- Pain and suffering: Has the accident caused you physical and emotional hardship?
- Disability: Is it hard or impossible for you to move the way you did before? Did you experience a traumatic brain injury that caused an intellectual disability?
- Loss of consortium: Has your relationship with your spouse suffered due to the accident or the resulting personal injuries?
- Diminished quality of life: Has the brain damage and other injuries made it impossible for you to live a pain-free, independent life?
- Medical expenses: Did you spend money to save your life or treat your injuries after the accident? Will you need to spend even more in the future?
- Lost income: Did you have to take days, weeks, or more time off work while your accident injuries healed?
- Lost earning capacity: Do your injuries prevent you from earning as much as you would have expected to at this point in your career?
- Repair expenses: Did you have to get your car fixed after the accident?
Truck Accident Victims Deserve Justice
As stated in a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), occupants of large trucks constituted just 4 percent of all traffic fatalities. This is because trucks are large enough to protect their occupants from serious injury in the event of an accident.
Pedestrians and the occupants of smaller vehicles, however, are not as fortunate. As of 2019:
- Pedestrians constituted 20 percent of all fatalities.
- Small truck occupants constituted 28 percent of fatalities.
- Car occupants constituted 34 percent of fatalities.
We want to help every truck accident victim in South Carolina receive justice and fair compensation. Our many positive Google reviews testify to the fact that our legal team is professional, compassionate, and devoted to protecting all South Carolinians.

What are the Symptoms of Brain Damage?
Per the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of brain damage vary depending on how serious the injury is. A mild case may cause nausea, dizziness, a brief loss of consciousness, and changes in mood or sleep. More severe cases may cause:
- Prolonged loss of consciousness, up to and including a coma
- Difficulty speaking, waking up or staying coordinated
- Serious headaches
If you or a loved one experiences any unusual symptoms after a truck accident, it is vital to seek medical help as soon as possible. Not only can this save your life, but it also creates a medical record that can help you prove the connection between your accident and your injuries.
