Commercial Vehicle Accidents In Western NC

Experience Matters When The Injuries Are Serious

Most people who drive trucks for a living are professional and safety-minded. Unfortunately, some employees entrusted with commercial vehicles are under deadline pressure, unqualified to handle a big truck or unconcerned about other motorists.

The law firm of Baker Billick, P.A., holds truck drivers and their employers accountable when their negligence leads to serious injuries. Experienced personal injury lawyer Luke Baker has secured damages in commercial vehicle accidents. We take cases in Concord and Asheville and throughout western North Carolina.

Truck accidents must be promptly investigated to preserve evidence. Call us today at 704-706-9308.

Putting Profit Over Safety

Drivers of 18-wheelers and other large trucks are subject to federal trucking regulations, such as hours behind the wheel and mandated rest between shifts. Trucks are also subject to weight limits and restricted from certain local roads. These rules are routinely ignored by unscrupulous drivers and companies, putting the public at risk.

Baker Billick, P.A., pursues damages for accidents involving commercial vehicles such as:

  • Freight truck and tractor-trailer accidents
  • Package delivery trucks (FedEx, UPS)
  • Corporate fleet vehicles
  • Utility and garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks and heavy equipment
  • Delivery cars and vans
  • Limousines, taxis and shuttles
  • Buses (private coach, school bus)

Maximizing Compensation For Your Injuries

Commercial vehicles generally carry good insurance, but that does not mean that drivers and employers will admit fault or volunteer full compensation. Luke Baker will go to trial, if necessary, to see that our clients are compensated accordingly. We do not let trucking companies pass the buck by claiming their drivers are independent operators.

To establish liability, we get accident reconstruction specialists to the crash site and send preservation letters to truck owners to secure black box data and other records (including the driver's real logbooks). Our mission is to uncover negligence that contributed to a crash: fatigue, speeding, traffic violations, unsafe lane changes, unsecured or overweight cargo, poor truck maintenance, or negligent hiring and training of drivers.
