Truck Accidents

Our highly skilled legal professionals know what’s needed to get victims compensation and closure.

Trucks are a common sight on the roads and highways surrounding Charlotte. Most drivers may not give a second thought to sharing the road with an 18-wheeled, 80-ton vehicle, but serious truck accidents happen more than many people might realize. Accidents on Interstate 85 or Interstate 77 can involve multiple vehicles and fatal injuries. Even a seemingly minor rear-end crash can have severe long-term consequences when a truck is involved.

At Hull & Chandler, P.A., we understand how devastating a truck accident can be in North Carolina. Determining the cause of your truck accident can be difficult. Potentially responsible parties – from the owner of the truck to a company may have loaded the trailer – may point fingers at each other. Because of the complicated nature of truck accident claims, it’s important to retain an experienced Charlotte personal injury attorney.
