Raleigh Trucking Accidents Attorney
Dedicated to Helping You Recover From Your Injuries
At Wilson Law, P.A., we understand the dramatic and life-altering consequences of truck accidents. Large commercial trucks often weigh over 80,000 pounds, which limits their maneuverability and increases the amount of time it takes for them to come to a complete stop. More importantly, this excessive size and weight often result in injuries to the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles when they are involved in an accident.
If you've been seriously injured in a truck accident, you're most likely dealing with expensive medical treatment and significant time away from work while you recover. These financial burdens can place a great deal of stress on your family. Fortunately, Wilson Law, P.A. can help. Our Raleigh trucking accidents attorney, Kimberly Wilson White, and her team will aggressively fight for the compensation you deserve.
Depending on the circumstances of your truck accident, you may be able to seek compensation from any of the following:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Truck manufacturer
- Another vehicle that may have caused the accident
- State Department of Transportation

Causes of Truck Accidents
While some truck accidents are caused by factors beyond our control such as harsh weather conditions, the vast majority of these collisions are due to negligence on the part of truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers.
Common negligent actions that result in truck accidents include:
- Inadequate truck driver training
- Unrealistic schedules that cause truck drivers to violate hours of service regulations
- Improperly secured cargo
- Overloaded trucks
- Unbalanced truck loads
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Drug and alcohol use
- Truck driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Failure to properly screen truck drivers during the hiring process
Despite so many safety regulations and guidelines designed to prevent these situations from occurring, these are still some of the most common reasons that truck accidents occur. If you've been injured in a truck accident caused by the negligence of the truck driver or trucking company, the attorneys at Wilson Law, P.A. will fight aggressively to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
What Makes Truck Accidents Different from Car Accidents?
There are many differences between car accident and truck accident cases. Truck accident cases are significantly more complex than typical car accidents. There are state and federal trucking regulations that govern these vehicles, not to mention there are much higher insurance policies for commercial truck drivers and their employers, so it's important to work with a skilled truck accident lawyer in Raleigh who knows how these laws apply to your case.
