Accidents involving large trucks can result in serious injuries and fatalities, even at low speeds. Due to the size of these vehicles and the potential it creates for catastrophic collisions, the trucking industry is heavily regulated at the federal and state levels. Therefore, truck and tractor trailer accident cases can become very complex, requiring the assistance of an experienced truck accident lawyer.
At the McDougall LawFirm, our Beaufort, Bluffton and Hilton Head personal injury attorneys have been handling difficult truck accident cases in South Carolina since 1996. We have the extensive knowledge of trucking rules and regulations that is necessary to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries or for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Evidence may disappear, vehicles may get repaired and witnesses eventually forget the details. A prompt and thorough investigation is the first step to winning the compensation you deserve. Our investigations include such measures as:
Further, because federal law strictly regulates the length of time a driver can drive a truck, we obtain the truck driver's logbooks to check for a possible drive-time violation.
