Tractor Trailer Accidents

Protecting Tractor Trailer Accident Victims

Busy North Carolina roadways such as I-40, I-85 and I-77 can be hazardous under normal circumstances. When fatigued and overworked tractor trailer operators who are under constant pressure to meet tight delivery deadlines are added into the mix, the results can be tragic.

I am Garry Whitaker. At Garry Whitaker Law, P.C., located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, I am committed to helping victims of large truck accidents fight to recover the maximum possible compensation.

Fully loaded 18 wheelers are huge pieces of machinery often carrying loads of 60,000 pounds or more on streets and interstates. Large trucks take significantly longer to come to complete stop than a car.

Tractor trailer accidents occur for several reasons, including:

  • Speeding/Exceeding a safe speed
  • Driver fatigue and/or inattention
  • Difficulty in seeing blind spots from the truck
  • Overloaded truck
  • Negligent maintenance and/repair of the truck
  • Weather conditions, including rain, snow, ice or darkness
  • Failure to stop

Accidents involving semi trucks can cause serious injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries, major fractures, and even wrongful death. Tractor trailer accident injuries often require lengthy, expensive hospital stays.

If you or someone you love has been injured in such an accident, you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for the compensation you deserve. Put my 25 years of personal injury experience to work for you.

Promptness is Essential

A vital part of successfully handling a semi truck crash case is performing a prompt investigation following the accident. I will work to preserve evidence immediately following the collision, including the condition of the vehicles involved and physical evidence from the scene.

Once the affected vehicles have been moved from the scene, they might be repaired or altered in some way. Physical evidence can become less reliable or lost. In order to build the strongest possible case, an immediate investigation of the scene is critical.

If you've been injured in a tractor trailer accident, contact my office online or call me locally at 336-777-1195 or toll free at 888-343-1022.

My firm handles all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorney fees unless you recover damages.
