Rock Hill Truck Accident Lawyer

Thousands of massive tractor-trailers use our interstates each day, often piloted by overworked, under-rested drivers charged with traveling hundreds of miles. Even worse, many of these drivers have not received the proper training required to drive their trucks, and their vehicles may have been poorly-maintained or overloaded. And when a truck driver makes a mistake, a collision that would normally only be a fender-bender could result in terrible injuries.

At the Elrod Pope Law Firm, we have ample experience as South Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers dealing with tractor-trailer accidents, and their consequences. Truck accidents can be additionally complicated because the trucking companies, supervisors, and contractors may bear responsibility, not just the driver. In addition to calculating all your damages, from lost wages and medical bills to time away from your family and diminished quality of life, we at Elrod Pope Law Firm can help determine exactly who is responsible for your injuries, and how much liability they bear.

Shortly after your accident, the negligent driver’s insurance company or attorney will likely give you a call and make you an offer. It may sound tempting as your bills mount and you’re too injured to return to work. But how can you know if the offer is fair if you’re not sure how much your injuries are worth, or even who should be paying? At Elrod Pope Law Firm, we can help you answer those questions and make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. The truck driver’s attorney is looking out for his clients, not you. Come to the Elrod Pope Law Firm, and let us fight for you.

Truck Accident Case Guidelines

If you have been involved in a truck accident, there will be several things going on during your case. Here are some guidelines to assist you during the process as well as address any concerns you may have.

  • #1 RULE: GET BETTER!
  • Act Fast
  • Seek Immediate Medical Treatment
  • Rental Car
  • Communicate with Your Doctor
  • Monitor and Document Your Condition and Treatment
  • Property Damage

Don’t Settle Too Soon

The at-fault driver’s insurance carrier will often push you to a fast settlement, which may be much lower than what is fair to you.  Keep in mind that once you waive your rights and accept a settlement, your case cannot be re-opened.
