Truck Accidents

Charleston Truck Accident Attorney

Holding Truckers & Trucking Companies Accountable for Negligence

Federal trucking regulations govern how and when truckers can operate their vehicles. A trucking company or truck driver that fails to follow trucking regulations is not only breaking the law – they are putting others on the road in danger.

Truck accidents almost always lead to extensive property damage and serious injuries. Quite often, innocent people are left to recover physically, financially, and emotionally from an incident that occurred at no fault of their own.

If you were involved in a truck accident caused by someone else’s negligence or mistake, you may have a personal injury claim worth pursuing. Consult with the Charleston truck accident attorney at Troy Law Firm PLLC. Attorney Mark Troy has over 25 years of personal injury experience to put to work for you. Our firm can build a strong case on your behalf as we pursue justice and compensation.

Possible Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck drivers have an important job – we rely on them to transport goods across the country. Sometimes, to meet the demands of the public, trucking companies push the limits and bend the rules, encouraging drivers to work long hours in harsh conditions or forego much-needed maintenance to meet demanding schedules. Far too often, this negligence leads to serious accidents that leave innocent people injured.

Truck accidents are often caused by:

  • Fatigued drivers who are operating their vehicle beyond the legal limit per day
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded vehicles
  • Unqualified or improperly trained truck drivers
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Vehicle malfunction
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Aggressive driving
  • Tailgating

How Troy Law Firm Can Help

During a free consultation, we’ll asses your situation and determine whether you have a valid claim. If we decide you do, we can get started with a thorough investigation. During this investigation, we’ll gather and review all the pertinent evidence, including the trucker’s log books, the trucking company’s vehicle maintenance records, and how the truck was loaded at the time of the accident.

We may bring in experts such as accident reconstructionists and medical professionals who can provide their expert opinions to shed light on your case and help us determine how much your claim is worth.

Ultimately, our goal is to build a strong case that holds the negligent party – be that the trucker, the trucking company, or the trucking company’s mechanic – so that you can obtain the compensation you need to recover. Our truck accident attorney in Charleston serve clients in Huntington, WV; Ashland and Prestonsburg, KY; and throughout West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky.
