Have you or a loved one been injured or killed in a Raleigh or North Carolina trucking accident? Get compassionate and effective legal representation to claim personal injury or wrongful death compensation with trucking accident injury lawyer Eric Kassor.
Truck accidents happen nearly every day across North Carolina, and Raleigh’s busy roads and highways are no exception. In the best of circumstances, they leave only the city's roads paralyzed. In the worst, they leave individuals crippled and families shattered.
Trucking accidents are four times more likely to cause deaths compared to ordinary passenger vehicle crashes, and the injuries they cause tend to be more serious, longer-lasting, and more expensive. Raleigh personal injury lawyer Eric Kassor is all too familiar with the suffering of trucking accident victims, as he has helped hundreds through the aftermath and recovery process.
With his help over nearly three decades of service, injured victims or the families of deceased drivers and passengers have been able to recover significant financial compensation for their injuries or losses.
While accidents involving big semi-trucks and commercial vehicles are blessedly less common than crashes among cars and other passenger vehicles, they tend to be far deadlier. This is due to simple, devastating physics.
With so much more size and weight in large loads, the bigger the truck, the harder it hits. This difference is then magnified at larger speeds, where cars and even smaller trucks stand little chance whether they hit the truck or the truck hits them.
These forces are then transferred to the driver or passengers of the lighter vehicle, leading to a greater likelihood of death or serious injuries that can tear apart a family and cripple someone physically and financially for years.
