Trucking Accidents

South Carolina Trucking Accidents Attorney

In South Carolina, Interstate 85 is heavily used by those in the trucking industry. When unsuspecting cars meet with speeding 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers, the truck crashes involved can be disastrous. People's lives are permanently changed and families are left without the loved ones they depended on.

As a Spartanburg/Greenville trucking accidents attorney and founder of the Knie & Shealy Law Offices, I represent injured victims as well as the surviving families of those killed in big-rig crashes. I bring more than 35 years of experience in personal injury law to these cases. I have the resources, the skill and the determination it takes to get results for my clients.

Work With a Lawyer Who Knows Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Semi-truck accidents are unlike those involving nearly any other type of motor vehicle because the sheer size of the truck easily overwhelms the safety precautions available on smaller vehicles.

No bumper or vehicle reinforcement can prevent a fatal accident in a crash in which a truck drives up over the back of a car.

No airbag can prevent a traumatic brain injury or paralyzing spinal cord injuries if a car rear-ends a semi-truck stopped alongside a dark road without hazard lights or signs.

In catastrophic injury cases such as these, fair financial recovery depends on understanding the full scope of a client's injuries and losses. I've handled personal injury cases in the Spartanburg/Greenville area for decades. I know the medical specialists in our state who can help my clients get the accurate diagnosis and medical treatment they need to achieve maximum physical recovery.

I also understand that when such serious injuries have occurred, the immediate cost is only a fraction of the lifelong costs that the trucking accident victim will have. This is also the case with families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death.

Working to Get the Full and Fair Compensation You Deserve

Your financial recovery following an 18-wheeler crash should take into account the lifetime of medical costs and any ongoing nursing care you may need. It should cover the medical products you will require and any necessary changes to your home if you face accessibility issues because of a wheelchair. If you can no longer do your job, it should pay you for lost wages and lost earning potential. This is only fair.
