Pursue Compensation that Protects Your Quality of Life
Every day, countless commercial motor vehicles travel the roads and highways of North Carolina. The mere presence of a truck can trigger intense and reasonable anxiety in car drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. After all, semis and tractor trailers are large vehicles that provide operators with insufficient stopping power and limited spatial awareness.
To protect lives, truckers must devote their full attention to the road and strictly engage in safe driving practices. Unfortunately, trucking companies are willing to ignore federal regulations and disregard legal penalties if there is a potential for profit. Consequently, truckers are pressured to engage in unsafe driving habits just to meet the unrealistic deadlines of their employers. This leads to the tragic daily accidents you see on TV.
Truck collisions occur when truckers participate in the following behaviors:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while exhausted
Truck accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries and heartbreaking fatalities. With a single act of negligence or carelessness, the lives of all parties and their families can be irrevocably changed forever. If you’ve been injured by the negligent actions of a truck driver, contact the truck accident attorneys at Price Petho & Associates P.L.L.C.

During your consultation, we can evaluate the circumstances of your case and plan a litigation strategy that meets your financial and legal objectives. A successful case result can provide you with compensation that accounts for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and more.
The following entities can be held liable for a car collision:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The maintenance crew
- The truck manufacturer
- The leasing company
Securing Essential Compensation
Truck accident victims often sustain significant injuries that warrant multiple surgeries and continual medical treatments. Insurance companies are rarely willing to pay the full extent of a survivor’s medical expenses. In fact, they try to pressure the survivor to accept an insufficient settlement amount just to save money and prevent future lawsuits. Our attorneys can negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company on your behalf and help you secure the damages you need to facilitate your financial and physical recovery. If necessary, we can even litigate in court to maximize your claim.
