Interstate Trucking Accidents

Interstates 95 and 40 inspire groans from drivers all throughout the Southeast and along the East Coast. The roads being filled with heavy trucks traveling at high speeds can make a drive down these highways stressful for any driver in the most perfect of conditions.

When truck drivers are fatigued or do not have the proper training, or if it is raining, snowing or windy, the results for families can be devastating. At The Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A. in Fayetteville, North Carolina, we stand up for the victims of truck and interstate accidents and their families. We provide the aggressive representation you need to recover compensation for your injuries and hold negligent drivers and trucking companies accountable.

How Interstate Accidents Differ from Other Trucking Accidents

Even in heavy traffic or bad weather on area interstates, you have likely come across commercial trucks traveling too fast for conditions. Trucks will come flying past cautious drivers, sometimes seemingly appearing out of thin air. At such high speeds, tractor-trailers that get into wrecks often cause catastrophic injuries and avoidable deaths.

When serious injuries occur, a quick settlement will likely not do. We work diligently to put together strong claims that maximize the compensation our clients can recover. This includes future medical needs and lost earning capacity.

Helping Out-of-State Drivers Who Are Hurt While Passing Through

When one driver or both drivers in a truck accident on an interstate highway are from out of state, there may be complex questions of jurisdiction to resolve. Which state's laws apply, the laws of the state where the accident occurred, or the laws of the state of residence of the offending driver? The answers are not always straightforward.

When a client's truck accident case involves out-of-state drivers, our attorneys can collaborate and consult as needed with lawyers, doctors and trucking companies in other states in pursuit of maximum obtainable compensation for our client.
