When passenger vehicles are involved in accidents with semi-trucks or other commercial vehicles, serious injuries result. The sheer size of commercial and industrial vehicles almost guarantees calamity.
At David & Associates, we understand how dangerous these accidents can be, and we have 70 years of experience protecting the rights of victims. Our lawyers work with injured individuals in Wilmington and throughout North Carolina who have been hurt in commercial vehicle accidents.
In addition to the size difference, many commercial carriers aggressively defend cases. Because North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, an accident victim who is found even 1 percent responsible for the accident cannot collect any compensation under the commercial vehicle’s liability policy. In an effort to avoid liability, many commercial carriers and their insurance companies try to argue that the accident victim could have avoided the accident had they been paying attention etc.
