Tractor Trailer Accidents

Throughout our state, we note more and more tractor trailers traveling on our roadways delivering goods and transporting merchandise to various locations. Unfortunately, these rigs weigh thousands of pounds in excess of what the typical car weighs and when an accident occurs, it more often than not, can result in one sustaining debilitating and permanent injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and/or death.

We at Hill & Hovis are familiar with the many federal regulations that are required to be complied with by the trucking industry. Hill & Hovis understands the importance of conducting a thorough investigation in a tractor trailer accident case and have found it often results in the uncovering of negligent acts or practices by the truck driver and/or its employer that may have contributed to the collision.

If settlement negotiations do not render fair compensation for our clients, Hill & Hovis has experience in trying tractor trailer cases before a jury in our state. Hill & Hovis have combined experience in excess of 60 years of handling these types of accidents. Hill & Hovis, for example, tried the case of Patrick McMillan and Mozelle Bodenheimer, administrators of Estate of Mary Bodenheimer McMillan vs. Charles Lee Radford and Baker Truck Leasing, Inc. Upon its conclusion, a Guilford County jury returned what was thought to be, at that time, the largest verdict for damages in the Triad area for a homemaker killed by the negligence of a truck driver.

As in all personal injury cases, Hill & Hovis does not charge attorney fees unless a recovery is made by their client. We also make free hospital and home visits to those unable to visit our office due to injury.
