Truckers travel across North Carolina every day, transporting freight on I-95, I-40, or I-85 or driving along rural roads, which account for more than half of all fatal collisions. With so many drivers relying on highways to get to work every day, it takes just one mistake by a truck driver for your life to change in an instant. After a tractor-trailer accident, victims often suffer from the emotional scars that traumatic experiences frequently leave behind, as well as the substantial physical toll on your body, and financial losses.
Negligent truckers, trucking companies, and manufacturers can and should be held liable for your injuries and for the damages they caused. Pursuing justice and compensation after a traumatic tractor-trailer accident, however, may be daunting. The truck company’s insurance company will pull out every defense in the book, invalidating your pain and suffering just to avoid a big payout, even if their driver is to blame.
At Henson Fuerst, our Raleigh North Carolina tractor-trailer accident lawyers have years of experience investigating truck accidents. We’ll leave no stone unturned to ensure that you and your family receive the maximum remedy available under the law. With a successful claim, we can reduce the financial burden you face by obtaining full and complete compensation that you need to restore your quality of life.
The Insurance Company Doesn’t Make Getting Compensation Easy.
From tired drivers to improper maintenance and overloading, many factors can cause a tractor-trailer accident. However, the consequences of a collision between a commercial truck and a passenger car can be catastrophic regardless of the cause.
Insurance companies recognize how devastating a tractor-trailer accident can be and are well aware of how vulnerable you may be following an accident. Unfortunately, since they work for the trucking company, they will not hesitate to manipulate you into accepting a quick settlement before the full extent of your injuries is known. If you do not take their offer, they do everything they can to disprove your claim and minimize the payment you deserve after a crash or wreck involving one of their trucks. That’s unfair and at Henson Fuerst, we will not let a trucking company or their insurance company take advantage of you.

Investigation Is The Key to Proving Negligence In Your Truck Crash Injury Case.
To win a truck accident case, you need to prove that the driver, truck company, or other entity was at fault and are responsible for your injuries. This is why gathering evidence and crafting a strong narrative are crucial to achieving the best possible results in a case. Medical records, a police report from the accident, photos or video of the accident, witness testimony, and other evidence can be used to show negligence in tractor-trailer accidents. Unfortunately, the longer you wait to collect and verify evidence, the more difficult it gets. As a result, when a truck accident victim is not represented, they seldom receive the compensation they deserve. The trucking company will send investigators to the accident scene as quickly as possible to reduce their liability. Before it’s too late, you might consider having an attorney investigate the scene on your behalf to safeguard your right to compensation.
