The difference in size, height, and weight between a large truck and a passenger vehicle or SUV can mean you are left with significant injuries if you collide. If a negligent truck driver caused your injuries, we can pursue them for financial compensation. If the company that employs the driver or the company that built its truck or its part caused the accident based on negligence, we also help you pursue them.
Once identified, the at-fault party will bear financial responsibility for the accident’s financial consequences. We can help build an evidence file that compels compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. We can negotiate on your behalf for a favorable financial settlement. To ensure you can seek compensation if a settlement is not offered, our Spartanburg County truck accident lawyer at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC will make sure the statute of limitations is met.

The Impact of a Large Truck and a Passenger Vehicle Collision
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research, when compared to a passenger vehicle, a large truck:
- Can outweigh it by up to 30 times
- Are tall enough to lead to under-riding
- Can need up to 40% more stopping distance
These factors can lead to disastrous results in a collision. If you or someone you love was involved in a crash, our personal injury lawyers can carefully collect evidence that proves the cause of the accident and tracks your injuries and their costs.
Per additional IIHS data, some commonly reported causes of truck versus vehicle collisions include:
- Slick or slippery roads
- Poorly maintained brakes
- Truck driver fatigue
Truck drivers who are distracted or who intentionally exceed hours-of-service regulations are also a reported cause of accidents. Our investigation will uncover the cause of the accident, document it, and submit the required information to the at-fault party and their insurance provider.

South Carolina’s Truck Accident Filing Deadline
Like all states, South Carolina has a filing deadline called the statute of limitations. Per S.C. Ann § 15-3-530, it generally entitles you to three years to file your lawsuit. Failure to comply with the statute of limitations means you could jeopardize your ability to file your lawsuit at all. Accordingly:
- The clock starts running on potential personal injury lawsuits on the date the accident took place.
- The clock starts running on a potential wrongful death lawsuit from the date of your loved one’s demise.
We will help you interpret and comply with the relevant statute of limitations when you get us involved in your case early. Early involvement also means we have plenty of time to conduct a thorough investigation, including canvassing the accident scene for witnesses, photos, and video footage.
