Raleigh Accident and Injury Lawyer
Our Raleigh accident and injury lawyers identify and notify all insurance carriers - Several insurance carriers usually share financial responsibility for the results of a trucking accident. We place all potentially liable insurers on immediate notice of potential claims, and enter an appearance on behalf of our client so we can meet the insurance adjuster's efforts to defend your claims head-on. Also, by locating all hidden insurance policies, we increase the fund pool available to pay for all losses and suffering endured by our clients. One example of a hidden policy is the case where a tractor trailer has a separate owner and registration for the tractor, and for the trailer being pulled behind. Federal law requires at least $750,000.00 in liability for all commercial vehicles operating in interstate transport. Because the trailer and tractor in this case are separate "vehicles" as the term is defined at law, total liability insurance for the rig now must be $1,500,000.00 for each accident.

Tractor trailer accidents produce catastrophic results. It is a critical mistake to treat a commercial vehicle accident like a typical car accident. Typically, private passenger car accidents are far easier to understand, and are less vigorously defended. If your accident was caused by a commercial vehicle, hire an attorney immediately. Proper, thorough investigation and case management are essential tasks of the experienced transportation lawyer. Further, by detailing all evidence and losses, your attorney ensures that the full value of your case is paid promptly by all responsible parties.
