Trucking Accidents Are Common in Hickory
Hickory has long been known on a national scale as a leading furniture manufacturing area. While this market has decreased over recent years, Hickory remains a major area of furniture production. Most product facilities rely on trucks, containers and tractor-trailer transports to bring goods from the manufacturing facilities to distributors and retailers throughout the country. I-40 is a major interstate highway running directly through the Hickory area. The results of this commercial vehicle and tractor-trailer traffic are serious truck and commercial vehicle accident cases which often cause serious or catastrophic injuries.
As a law firm representing personal injury clients throughout North Carolina, we know that Hickory sees its fair share of serious truck accidents. Nagle & Associates has a separate division that deals exclusively with truck and commercial vehicle accident cases. These complex, high-value cases are defended vigorously by the insurance companies and trucking companies who owe for victims' losses. They always look for reasons to blame the victim for the accident, and they also commonly contest your medical claims. Further, they put forward delay tactics and prolonged defense efforts. They know that lengthy litigation doesn't hurt big companies, but it can destroy a family's finances. The truck accident lawyers at Nagle & Associates stand ready to protect and enforce your legal rights.

Truck Accidents ∙ Fierce Litigation ∙ Experienced Law Firm
To a greater degree than in car accident cases, in truck accident cases we are dealing with large companies with assets and wealth at stake. Almost all trucking companies have large commercial insurance policies. If the truck operates across state lines, federal law requires that the driver carry at least $750,000 in coverage to pay for victims' claimed losses. Because there is so much at stake, these cases are defended more vigorously than private passenger auto accidents.
Insurance companies in truck accidents have a lot more to lose, so they fight these cases fiercely. All we do is litigate personal injury cases, so we are comfortable handling these aggressive insurance companies on behalf of our clients.
Quality legal representation is essential. Carl Nagle, our founding attorney, has the experience to help you get full compensation for your truck accident injuries. Before becoming a Hickory truck accident attorney, he worked as an insurance adjuster and as an insurance defense attorney. Happy to leave that line of work, attorney Nagle brings all the benefits of that experience to our clients. We know how to negotiate toward the highest settlements, and how to litigate against these aggressive insurance companies. We also have the resources to support lengthy, drawn-out litigation. We have what it takes to protect your rights and interests and to help you get the compensation you need after a truck-related injury.
