Charleston Truck Accident Attorney

In collisions with large commercial trucks, occupants of passenger vehicles almost always suffer serious injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured in a Charleston truck accident, you need an attorney working for you as soon as possible. Trucking companies and their insurers have deep pockets and will begin an investigation into the accident almost immediately, building a case against you.

At Mickelsen Dalton, our truck accident attorneys can help preserve evidence, protect your rights and best interests, and fight to recover the compensation you need to move forward. We offer a free and confidential case evaluation, call today to speak with an attorney.

What Kind of Damages Are Available to Truck Accident Victims?

Damages from a truck accident are often more life-altering than any car accident. The time spent recovering from your injuries and time away from work can quickly add up. Damages that you may be entitled to include:

  • Medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Emotional stress
  • Loss of companionship
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Inconvenience

No two truck accidents are the same. Without reviewing the evidence, there is no way to know what your case may be worth. Mickelsen Dalton is a skilled truck accident law firm serving the Charleston, SC area. We fight for every penny you deserve and won’t stop until you are fully compensated.

Mickelsen Dalton: Fighting for Compensation for Your Truck Accident Injuries

Injuries from truck accidents are often more catastrophic than your average auto accident. You or your loved one may face months or years of medical care and rehabilitation. Our attorneys are skilled at fighting to ensure you get the compensation you deserve, including temporary or permanent disability.

What Causes Most Truck Accidents in Charleston?

Just like car accidents, no two truck accidents are the same. However, some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Defective parts
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while exhausted
  • Failure to keep up with proper maintenance
  • Not properly securing cargo

What Is Negligence?

Negligence has four components:

  1. Duty: (the other party owed you a duty of care)
  2. Breach: the other party breached that duty
  3. Causation: that breach caused you harm
  4. Damages: you were injured as a result

Unfortunately, proving negligence falls on the victim. Mickelsen Dalton can help. We can help you find the evidence you may not otherwise have access to, such as traffic or security cameras, driver logs, maintenance records, vehicle black box data, and more. We take the burden of proof off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on healing.

What Should I Do After Getting into a Wreck in Charleston?
