Every day, around the Piedmont Triad, across North Carolina, and throughout the country, tens of thousands of tractor-trailers and big-rigs are driving down our highways and roads. Carrying large loads of cargo for long distances, and in a hurry to get to that cargo to its destination as quickly as possible, truck drivers and truck companies can be tempted to cut corners or try to get around regulations designed to protect other drivers on the road from the devastating consequences of tractor-trailer collisions. Passenger cars are no match for such massive vehicles, and when driver or trucking company negligence or recklessness leads to catastrophic crashes, the car’s driver and passengers often are killed or sustain massive, life-altering injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, massive internal trauma, or permanent disability.
Experience and Success Fighting for Victims of Big-Rig Collisions
I’m personal injury attorney Rich Manger. For years, I have been helping people in High Point and surrounding communities whose lives have been upended because of injuries or losses sustained in tractor-trailer crashes. I have seen what happens to families when lives are cut short or forever changed because of the greed or negligence of trucking companies and drivers. That is why I am committed to holding those people responsible and helping truck crash victims get the highest amount of compensation for their losses. With deep experience in the complicated issues involved in these cases and an unwavering dedication to our clients’ well-being, the Manger Law Firm has earned a reputation for legal excellence in truck crash litigation and earned the trust of those living in the aftermath of truck crashes.
Causes of Tractor-Trailer Crashes
Big rig collisions with cars can happen for any number of reasons, many of which involve failures to follow federal safety regulations and include:
- Overloaded tractor-trailers
- Hours of service violations
- Driver distraction
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Defective equipment, such as brakes and tires
- Unlicensed and untrained drivers
- Falsified log records
- Failure to inspect and maintain
- Road rage
A Truck Crash Case Requires a Truck Crash Lawyer
Just as truck wrecks tend to be much more catastrophic than collisions between two cars, big-rig injury lawsuits are also much more complex. Federal regulations governing maintenance, driving hours, and other matters relating to truck safety come into play. Multiple parties, including drivers, multi-layered trucking companies, truck manufacturers, and others may need to be identified and may all be sued. We have a deep understanding of what laws and regulations apply, and how defendants try to avoid them or cover it up when they violate those rules.
We use that understanding, combined with a tenacious and through approach, to prove the link between driver and trucking company negligence and our clients’ injuries or losses. Whether in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, we will stop at nothing to get victims or truck crashes the highest amount of compensation available.
