A range of companies and individuals could be at fault in any trucking accident. This is why it is vital to your case to consult a South Carolina trucking accident lawyer who is extensively experienced in tractor-trailer accident cases throughout the state. In any given accident, a full investigation by our law firm could reveal that the company that owns the truck cab, the company that owns the trailer, the company that loaded the trailer or the company that employs the truck driver is liable. Sometimes more than one company can be held responsible.
At Lanier & Burroughs, LLC, with more than 50 years of combined legal experience, we have pursued cases including:
- Overworking truckers with unrealistic scheduling
- Negligent inspections and maintenance
- Overloaded, unsecured or otherwise improperly loaded trucks
- Failure to perform adequate background checks of employees
- Improper driving or safety training of truck drivers
- Inadequate supervision
We do not overlook any factors that may have led to the accident that injured you or your loved one. All parties involved in a semi-truck accident are potentially liable parties in a lawsuit.
Accident Attorneys Holding Trucking Companies Accountable
Lack of action to take negligent, unqualified or criminal drivers off the road is a duty of the trucking company entirely. In addition, it is the duty of the truck driver or the truck company to correct any vehicle defects and inadequate safety measures, such as improper lighting, poor visibility of conspicuity taping (reflective taping) and unmarked loads that extend over the sides or off the end of a trailer.
