Based near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the Fata Law Firm has been helping victims of truck accidents recover compensation for their injuries for over 20 years. If you were hit by a truck, injured in semi truck or tractor-trailer accident, or injured due to any act of truck driver negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
If you have been injured in a truck collision or auto accident, not only must you focus on getting the medical treatment you need to heal, but you also must gather evidence, communicate with insurance companies and take the necessary legal steps to ensure your rights are protected. At the Fata Law Firm, clients rely on us to lead the legal charge so they can focus on their recovery.
Because semis and other large tractor-trailers have the ability to cause very serious injuries, drivers and operators are strictly regulated by the federal government. There are specific rules regarding operation, including limits on how many hours a truck driver can drive in one day, and mandatory rest breaks.
Truck accidents typically involve serious injury, and larger compensation awards are at stake. This means insurance companies fight even harder to prevent paying what is due. Within 24 hours of the accident, the trucking company will have its insurance company on the scene of the accident.
At the Fata Law Firm, we immediately investigate the accident to determine whether any of these federal regulations were violated. If so, we include the infractions in our legal strategy to prove the driver's negligence and increase compensation awards. We also evaluate the trucking machinery involved to identify any possible manufacturing or safety defects that may have contributed to the accident. Once we have all necessary evidence, we develop strategic legal arguments that force insurance companies to acknowledge the truck driver's wrongdoing and pay our clients what they deserve.
