Should I Get A Lawyer for My Personal Injury?

Maybe you are the type of person who is hesitant to sue anyone. Still, you could be experiencing pain, suffering, and discomfort, dealing with piles of unexpected medical bills, time off work, and being confused about how to move forward. Shouldn’t someone pay for what happened? Having a Personal Injury attorney is, unfortunately, a reality for ensuring you get what is right.

Accidents involving trucks can be more severe than car accidents due to their larger size and weight, especially enormous 18-wheeler tractor-trailer trucks. While the most common vehicles are pickup trucks and SUVs, which can do plenty of damage, the larger commercial vehicles often cause the most severe injuries. The root of many of these Commercial Vehicle Accidents stem from Reckless Operation, Driver fatigue, Lack of Truck Maintenance, Violating Truck Regulations, Improper Truck Maintenance, and more.

Statute of Limitations for Truck Accidents in South Carolina

The statute of limitations is a law that limits how long you have to file a lawsuit against the liable party. In South Carolina, the car accident statute of limitations is generally three years from the date that the collision happened.

Injuries caused by someone else’s negligence can be life-altering. You were healthy and vibrant one minute, and you were dealing with painful injuries, doctors’ appointments, and lost wages the next. Then, there is the emotional toll caused by your personal injury. You might feel angry at the person that caused the injury and depressed and anxious about your physical and financial issues.

What to do if you’ve been injured in an accident:

  1. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Whether this is the police, an employer, a store employee, or a supervisor. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you can receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  2. Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information too.
  3. ​Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the dangerous condition.
  4. Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information you have about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, contact our experienced Greenville Personal Injury Lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.

Comparative Fault In Vehicle Accident Injury Cases

South Carolina has a 50% comparative negligence bar. This means that as long as you are responsible for 50% of your accident or less, you may recover damages. Your recoverable damages will be reduced by the amount of percentage you are found to be liable for. This is why it is important you contact our offices to hammer out the details of your case.

We can help you recover the maximum compensation for your accident. This can be used to help pay for lost wages, your medical bills and any pain and suffering you may have experienced as a result of the accident.

Semi - Truck Accidents Can Cause More Serious Injuries

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Semi-truck collisions can lead to head injuries, from concussions to more severe traumatic brain injuries. These can have long-term consequences and may affect cognitive function, memory, and other aspects of your daily life.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Semi-truck accidents can cause damage to the spinal cord, leading to paralysis or significant loss of function below the injury site. These injuries often have a lasting impact on your quality of life.
  • Amputations: Severe accidents may result in traumatic injuries that require amputations, either at the scene of the accident or in the aftermath due to the extent of your injuries.
  • ​Internal Injuries: Semi-truck accidents can cause internal injuries such as organ damage, internal bleeding, or damage to blood vessels. These injuries may not always be immediately apparent and can lead to serious complications.
  • Fractures and Orthopedic Injuries: The force of a collision with a semi-truck can cause multiple fractures, including broken bones in the limbs, pelvis, and more. Your orthopedic injuries may require extensive surgeries and rehabilitation.
  • Burns: If a semi-truck is carrying hazardous materials or if there’s a fire after the collision, you may suffer severe burn injuries. Burns can be painful and may require ongoing medical treatment.
  • ​Crush /Blunt Force Injuries: Semi – Truck Collisions can lead to vehicles being crushed, causing injuries that result from the compression of body parts. Crush injuries may lead to complications such as compartment syndrome and other vascular issues.
  • Psychological Trauma: Beyond physical injuries, individuals involved in semi-truck accidents can be taxing mentally. This can include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event on the road can have lasting effects on your mental health.

Truck accidents are a significant concern in South Carolina. According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, commercial motor vehicles (CMV) played a role in 22 percent of fatal collisions in the state during 2019.
