Semi trucks are an integral part of the American economy; transporting goods across the country and moving freight to and from our coastal ports. With Greenville’s convenient access some of the largest interstates — it stands to reason that the majority of our community drivers have shared the highway with big rigs on a regular basis. Unfortunately, these trucks are no longer relegated to the ‘slow lane,’ which causes crowding and tensions to run high.
If you have been injured due to a semi-truck collision, a Greenville truck accident attorney with Auger & Auger can be on the scene expeditiously. A field investigation should be undertaken by someone who represents you, and though your own insurance carrier will be involved, it’s important to remember that they are more concerned with reducing their liability than pursuing any claim against the at-fault party.

Every accident happens for a reason. When a passenger vehicle and a semi truck collide, it is often the occupants of the smaller vehicle who sustain the most severe injuries. While that driver can certainly take steps to avoid collisions (staying out trucker’s blind spots, maintaining a clear distance, avoiding cutting off large vehicles), truck operators need to take their share of responsibility for reducing the number of collisions on South Carolina roadways.
Our Greenville truck accident attorney certainly understands causation. We have represented countless victims of truck accidents and are well aware that there are many different ways in which truck operators can be at fault.
