Skilled Charlotte Truck Accident Attorney

Diligent truck crash lawyer in North Carolina dedicated to helping the injured

Truck accidents are often the most devastating traffic accidents. Because of their size and weight, trucks such as semis, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and big rigs often cause serious or even deadly injuries to the drivers and passengers of other vehicles. At the Law Offices of Brian deBrun PLLC, our Charlotte auto accident attorney has more than 50 years of experience helping the injured recover compensation when an accident is caused by the negligence of another, such as a truck driver. We use our significant skill, meticulous attention to detail and extensive experience to help the injured recover compensation and obtain justice.

Causes of truck accidents in Charlotte, NC

According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, there were 232,600 vehicle accidents in 2011, resulting in 106,423 injuries and 1,208 fatalities. Because large, heavy trucks have limited visibility and are difficult to maneuver, it is hard for them to safely share the road with smaller vehicles and they are frequently involved in traffic accidents.

If you were injured in a truck accident, our auto accident lawyer and staff can help you recover compensation from the at-fault truck driver or other driver. Through our attentive and compassionate representation and our aggressive trial and negotiation tactics, we assist victims who are injured in truck accidents due to all types of fault and liability:

  • Truck driver negligence
  • Truck company or employer negligence
  • Negligent truck maintenance or inspection
  • Improperly loaded vehicles

  • Dangerous or defective Interstate or highway conditions
  • Wheel blowouts and other manufacturing defects

Experienced truck accident lawyer helping you recover compensation

Although in many cases the negligent truck driver may be liable for injuries you sustain in an accident, trucking companies and employees may also be found negligent.
