The Thomas Creech Law Offices in Greenville, S.C. represents people and families injured or killed in cases of motorcycle truck wrongful death accidents.
Accidents involving a motorcycle and truck are serious, often fatal, and necessitate immediate legal representation and attention. Many tasks need to be performed immediately including obtaining investigative reports. To protect your rights, we also need to launch an investigation into the accident immediately as well.
At the Thomas Creech Law Offices, we take very seriously cases involving motorcycle truck wrongful death accidents. These cases require attentive, thorough, conscientious, and committed legal counsel. And that is what we aim to bring in your case.
We are an experienced Greenville SC personal injury law firm. With twenty years of courtroom experience, including as a judicial law clerk and a prosecutor in the 13th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, our law firm enjoys representing people and families in serious motorcycle truck wrongful death accidents.
Each year there are accidents on the highways of South Carolina, and right here in the upstate, involving negligent truck drivers and other vehicles. Some potential causes of these accidents range from a sleepy driver, following too closely, and distracted truck driver.
Another cause of motorcycle truck wrongful death cases is a truck driver failing to yield to the right of way of an oncoming motorcycle. Sometimes a truck driver will try to cross oncoming lanes of traffic in an attempt to turn. However, a truck may not make the turn with caution or with careful attention and, as a result, hit a motorcycle, causing serious injuries or death.
Motorcycle riders are much more susceptible to serious personal injury in an accident involving a truck. When a motorcyclist is hit and killed by a negligent truck driver, it is considered a wrongful death.
Injuries sustained in motorcycle truck wrongful death cases can involve pain, suffering, lost wages, permanent impairment, lost ability to earn future wages, scarring and disfigurement, and even death.
In a wrongful death case, a person will be appointed by the Probate Court as the personal representative. An attorney who works on cases of motorcycle truck wrongful death accidents will ordinarily have the experience and legal knowledge to explain to you who the court will appoint as the personal representative of the estate of the deceased.
Wrongful death cases seek monetary compensation for loss of a loved one-and the normal grief, shock, and loss of society family members experience after a loved one dies. Also, in wrongful death cases, we seek to obtain compensation for future lost earnings and lost wages of a deceased for the protection of a family’s future financial obligations. To that end, we will investigate and seek to obtain all sources of possible insurance policies that provide coverage in the motorcycle truck wrongful death case.
Things you should avoid in cases of motorcycle truck wrongful death accidents:
Avoid the insurance or trucking company. If you receive a call from an insurance company or the trucking company, you should avoid speaking with them. Retain a lawyer immediately who will know how to properly and appropriately respond to the insurance company or trucking company after the accident.
Avoid being solicited by an unethical law firm. If you receive a call or an unannounced, uninvited in-person visit either at your home or hospital room from a person claiming to be a law firm investigator, be careful and do not talk with them. It could be a law firm trying to unethically solicit you as a client. You do not want to hire an unethical law firm.
Do you really want a law firm that advertises its services on television? Be careful about hiring a law firm based upon its television advertisement-a law firm that advertises on television typically has a lot of cases and it may not be able to deliver thorough, personal, attentive, or aggressive representation. Moreover, the law firm may not even be local.
