Truck Accident Lawyers in Durham, NC

Helping Truck Accident Victims Pursue the Compensation They Deserve

Large commercial trucks represent an increased risk for motorists on the road. That is why they (and the entire trucking industry) are subject to various laws and regulations—to prevent accidents and keep drivers and passengers safe. When these regulations and standards are not met and people are hurt, victims often have the option to seek compensation for any resulting injuries and damages.

At Kornbluth Ginsberg Law Group, P.A., our Durham truck accident attorneys are industry-recognized for the work they have done on behalf of our injured and bereaved clients. We are well-aware of the diligence these trucking accidents require and how to hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm that they have caused. If you or a loved one have been hurt, our advocates are ready to help you discuss your options. We also represent victims of big-rig accidents including 18-wheelers.

Who Is At Fault?

In the aftermath of a truck accident, the authorities will conduct an investigation into what went wrong. Depending on what caused the accident, different parties may be held responsible for any resulting injuries and damages.

Common causes for truck accidents include:

  • Driver error
  • Impaired driving (DUI, fatigue, drugs, etc.)
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Lack of maintenance on the truck
  • Lack of maintenance on the trailer
  • Equipment malfunction

Truck Accident Compensation

The average semi truck accident settlement takes into account the following economic and noneconomic damages:

  • Medical bills - both current and past
  • Ongoing treatment or care
  • Physical therapy
  • Any modifications that your home may require in the event of permanent disability following your accident
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost future income
  • Emotional therapy

Truck accidents often cause what is known as "catastrophic injury," or injuries that often lead to an extreme change in how one lives their life. For example, paralysis, loss of mobility, brain damage, and more. In light of this, large sums are often awarded in truck accident settlements. In cases where the accident resulted in the death of a loved one, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim on their family's behalf.
