Wilmington-Based Truck Accident Lawyers

A complex web of regulations governs the trucking industry. Truck drivers and their employers must adhere to these rules. When they don't, they put others' lives at risk.

Why These Cases Are So Challenging

Accidents involving heavy trucks — also known as semi trucks, tractor-trailer rigs and 18-wheelers — often have tragic consequences. The immense size of these vehicles contributes to catastrophic physical damage and serious or fatal injuries.

Because the damage awards in truck accident cases can cost trucking companies tens of thousands of dollars, the trucking company and its insurance carrier will likely take a fierce stance against you. Such an uphill legal battle is not one you should face alone.
