Thorough Investigation of Tractor-Trailer Accidents
Veteran trial lawyer Kathryn Williams has secured numerous jury awards and settlements in trucking accident cases. We know what to look for in investigating the collision that injured or killed your family member:
- Evidence at the scene — We send investigators and accident reconstructionists to the scene to measure skid marks, photograph the vehicles, interview witnesses, and analyze the debris field.
- The "black box" — Most tractor-trailers (and many passenger cars) carry an on-board data recorder that yields important evidence about the speed at impact and distance traveled before the crash. We will recover this data when available to help prove our case.
- Driver's logs — Federal regulations mandate a specific period of rest between driving stints. We match the logs against other evidence to determine if the trucker was likely fatigued, speeding, or illegally doctoring the books.
We also examine maintenance logs to see if brakes or tires were overly worn. We inspect the truck for evidence that the freight was overloaded, imbalanced, or improperly secured. Was heavy traffic a factor? Bad weather? A road hazard? Evidence of drinking or drug use? A history of traffic accidents by the driver?
The interstate highways in Upstate South Carolina are where most tractor-trailer accidents regularly occur: I-26, I-185 and I-385 beltways, and I-85, sometimes called the "Corridor of Death" between Greenville and Spartanburg where rear-end collisions and lane change tractor-trailer accidents are commonplace.
Commercial haulers are normally heavily insured, but causation issues can cloud who should pay. The cab and trailer may be owned by different companies. One-fourth of all truck accidents involve three or more vehicles. Another auto driver's negligence may cause or contribute to the crash. We will conduct a through investigation to determine who is responsible and identify all insurance coverages to obtain the best settlement for our clients.
