Truck crashesh into car

Our wrongful death truck accident attorneys at the David W. Martin Law Group represent families who have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death caused by commercial trucking vehicles. Losing a loved one in such a tragic disaster can be devastating and overwhelming, and we are here to assist you in navigating the legal system and obtaining the compensation you and your family deserve.

A variety of factors, including driver negligence, reckless driving, fatigue, distracted driving, and defective equipment, can contribute to a wrongful death caused by a commercial trucking vehicle in South Carolina.

Here are some of the most common categories of cases involving wrongful death in commercial trucking accidents:

Rear-end collisions: Commercial truck drivers frequently drive for extended periods of time without taking breaks, which can contribute to fatigue and diminished reaction times. Consequently, they may not be able to halt in time to avoid a rear-end collision.

When a commercial vehicle driver slams on the brakes, the trailer can swing out to the side, resulting in a jackknife accident. This is particularly hazardous on congested highways and can result in catastrophic collisions.

Accidents caused by blind spots: Large blind spots on the sides and rear of commercial trucks make it difficult for drivers to see smaller vehicles. As a consequence, they may merge into another lane or make a turn without being aware of the presence of another vehicle.

Rollover accidents: Because commercial vehicles are top-heavy, they can easily roll over if they make a sharp turn too quickly or hit an obstacle on the road. If your loved one passed away in an accident involving a commercial truck in South Carolina, you may be entitled to compensation for their wrongful death. South Carolina law permits the victim’s family to seek compensation for a range of damages, including:

Medical Expenses: If your loved one received medical care prior to their passing, you may be able to recover the associated costs.

Funeral Expenses: The cost of a funeral and burial can be substantial, and you may be able to recover these costs from the liable party.

Lost Earnings: If your deceased loved one was your family’s principal source of income, you may be able to recover the income they would have earned had they not been killed.

Pain and Suffering: You may also be entitled to compensation for the emotional anguish and suffering you have endured as a result of your loved one’s passing.
