When a 4,000 pound passenger car gets into an accident with an 80,000 pound semi, you don’t stand a chance.

While the numbers of fatal trucking accidents in the Carolinas are not large, the consequences of a semi or large commercial truck accident are often extremely serious. Death or permanent disability are frequently the result.

At Lee Law Offices, P.A., we will investigate your case, work to determine the amount of insurance available, both on the truck and through the trucking company, investigate the circumstances of the accident and fight to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Compensation for injuries is often available through a corporation’s overall liability insurance policy for accidents caused by commercial trucks like semis, dump trucks, delivery trucks, logging trucks and other vehicles owned and operated by companies.
