Commercial Vehicle Accidents

As motorists in North Carolina, we share the roads with an increasing number of commercial vehicles such as delivery cars and trucks, cargo vans and company vehicles. However, when a commercial driver rushing to make a delivery causes an accident by running a red light, speeding or making an unsafe lane change, it is often the occupant of the other vehicle who pays the price. The aftermath can include lost wages, ongoing medical bills, and a long and painful recovery.

At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Landreth, our lawyers will serve as zealous advocates to ensure that you are treated fairly by the commercial vehicle’s insurance carrier. A financial award will never restore the quality of life that a person enjoyed before a serious commercial vehicle accident. However, a victim who is fairly compensated will be able to focus on recovering his or her health rather than dealing with immediate financial worries.

Insurance companies know that a serious injury places a great deal of financial strain, not only on the person who is injured, but also on family members who depend on that person for support. Many companies will try to pressure you into accepting a settlement that does not provide you with full compensation.

Contact our office if you have been in an accident and suffered an injury at the hands of any of the following commercial vehicles:

  • Delivery cars
  • Cargo vans
  • Delivery trucks
  • Company vehicles
  • Other commercial vehicles

Our lawyers believe that a portion of any verdict or settlement related to any injury should attempt to “make right the wrongs.” We firmly believe that corporations should be held accountable for those intangible losses that cannot be replaced but nevertheless need to be addressed. We are eager to serve you.

When you bring your commercial accident claim to Powers Landreth, our lawyers will take the time to fully explain the issues involved in your case and your legal options. Our collaborative approach will enable you to effectively participate in decisions that will affect your future.

My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.

Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.

I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
