Can You Sue the City if You Get Hurt by a Garbage Truck?

By |July 21st, 2020|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

No one likes getting stuck behind a garbage truck when maneuvering through the city streets in Charlotte. What’s worse is when you are involved in an accident with a garbage truck. If the accident wasn’t your fault, who is liable? The truck driver? The city? Charlotte provides garbage collection services for its residents, so generally the first place you should look to is the city itself. Can I take action against the city of Charlotte? [...]

Trucking Accidents and Background Checks for Drivers

By |April 28th, 2020|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

In North Carolina in 2018, about 3.3% of motor vehicle accidents involved some form of commercial vehicles. In the same year, about 6.5% of accidents where there was a fatality included commercial vehicles, along with about 2.8% of those where a person was injured.

Crashes With Lifted Trucks Can Be Deadly

By |March 3rd, 2020|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

North Carolina’s laws are a bit lax when it comes to what is street legal, so the chances are good that you’ve shared the road with a lifted truck. A lift kit can certainly help if you spend a lot of time driving around on dangerous terrain, or if you have to haul a lot of heavy goods – but they can be a bit intimidating when you’re sitting in a passenger vehicle that’s lower [...]

By |January 21st, 2020|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

Underride accidents have been in the news more often lately, as parents of younger victims, along with legislators, are pushing to pass a new proposed law.

Truck Stops Are Convenient, but Dangerous

By |December 31st, 2019|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

There are thousands of truck stops across America, and truckers aren’t the only ones who use them. Locals use them for convenience stores and gas stations. Travelers use them as rest stops where they can grab snacks, stretch their legs, refuel, and regroup mentally if they need a quick nap. None of this changes the fact that these are still centers for tractor trailers, tankers, and other large trucks where drivers shower, sleep, and handle [...]

Driver’s License Suspensions Don’t Stop Truck Drivers

By |November 14th, 2019|Truck Accidents|0 Comments

We hit the roads every day trusting that everyone else behind the wheel has the requisite skills and licensing to safely operate their vehicles. Because trucks are so much larger than standard passenger vehicles it's all the more important that drivers steering these deadly rigs have been fully trained and are qualified to drive among us. Without the trucking industry the country wouldn’t be able to function, and we are in the midst of a [...]
