South Carolina Truck Accidents

It’s common knowledge that drivers of semi-trucks or other large trucks need specialized training and knowledge to safely operate a vehicle of that size.

The size of the trucks can make them hard to maneuver, and they can cause you to suffer catastrophic injuries should an accident occur.

In South Carolina, the most common causes of truck accidents include, but aren’t limited to:

  1. Distracted Driving
  1. Driver Fatigue
  1. Inadequate Training
  1. Speeding
  1. Parts and/or Vehicle Defects
  1. Poor Maintenance
  1. Poorly Loaded and/or Secured Cargo
