TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Collisions with trucks not only cause greater injuries but also tend to be more legally complex. If someone in your family was injured or killed in a truck accident, you need to immediately involve an experienced lawyer who understands how to protect your interests. The trucking firms and insurance companies will act swiftly to limit their exposure, and critical evidence must be preserved.

The lawyers of McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., represent victims of truck accidents in Horry County and Georgetown County. We have obtained notable results over the years in personal injury litigation, including accidents involving tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks.

TRUCK ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

Trial lawyer Gene Vaught has practiced in personal injury law for more than 25 years. He oversees a prompt and thorough investigation of the accident. For example, it is important to have the vehicles inspected and to put the trucking company on notice to preserve maintenance records, driver logbooks and data from the truck's onboard "black box" computer.

Our Myrtle Beach law firm represents people in passenger vehicles injured in collisions with all types of trucks and commercial vehicles:

  • 18-Wheelers

  • Freight Trucks

  • Package Delivery Trucks

  • Construction Vehicles

  • Buses

  • Delivery Vans

There may be several liable parties, as when the truck cab and trailer are owned by separate entities or when a truck crash involves multiple vehicles. We work with accident reconstructionists and other professionals to determine the negligence that caused the accident, such as driver fatigue, distracted driving, impaired driving, worn tires or brakes, improper loading of cargo, or negligence in hiring and training of truck drivers.

Our local knowledge also helps us identify contributing factors, such as dangerous curves or traffic bottlenecks on Highway 17, Highway 501, Highways 22 and 31, or Ocean Boulevard.

We strive to maximize compensation for major injuries or a wrongful death from a truck accident. Our firm works closely with clients to ensure that damages cover future surgery and medical care, loss of income, pain and suffering, and permanent disability or disfigurement. Our Myrtle Beach truck accident attorneys are prepared to take trucking companies and their insurers to trial if we cannot obtain a sufficient settlement out of court.
