Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys in Asheville NC
Winding, narrow mountain roads and large trucks don’t always work well together. This is especially true if the truck is mismanaged. With large trucks, even if just a little negligence has occurred, the resulting injuries can be massive and the legal case complex.
At Fisher Stark, we’re experienced at collecting truck accident evidence. From cases involving mismanagement, negligence and even cover ups, we fight for proper compensation, not what corporate insurance adjusters say is right.
Their insurance company does not have your best interest at heart.
Catastrophic Injury Cases Require Quick Action
Insurance companies are acting immediately to gather evidence to protect the trucking company. That’s why the sooner you have a strong legal team on your side, the greater the odds of success in your personal injury case may be.
Semi trucks, 18 wheelers, tractor trailers, “oversized load” trucks and even busses can all cause catastrophic injuries to other drivers and to pedestrians. Damages can include spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, scarring, disfigurement and even death.

Injuries Can Last a Lifetime
Unfortunately, pain and suffering is just the beginning of damages caused when corporate mismanagement or negligence results in a truck accident. Catastrophic injuries often involve extensive medical treatment and great expenses. Damages are made worse when you factor in loss of wages, rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and often permanent damage and/or disability.
There are other damages beyond the physical too that are just as crippling in such complex truck accident cases.
The harm caused by catastrophic trucking injuries can also affect loved ones. A strong support network is required during recuperation from such serious injuries. So, injuries can affect everyone, including loved ones. Such rehabilitative and strong support often means family and friends lives are turned upside down as they care for the injured.
At Fisher Stark, we know this sort of care can have serious financial and emotional repercussions. We take the time to investigate the accident to achieve the best outcome for you. Let us handle the legal side and fight the insurance companies while you focus on getting better or caring for your injured loved one.
The financial hardship caused by catastrophic injuries can be debilitating in and of itself. Don’t let corporate insurance companies protecting the guilty party control your care and compensation.

Experience with complex cases
Having a lawyer prove negligence in truck accidents is very important when filing a personal injury case. But complex State and Federal regulations in the trucking industry can be hard to interpret. Fisher Stark lawyers have experience with complex laws and litigation as well as the resources to fully investigate accidents.
Trucking regulations require companies follow strict procedures because both State and Federal regulations hold them to higher standards. For example, there are specific rules regarding how long a truck driver can be behind the wheel and how much rest they must get in a given time frame. Such laws are in place to protect the public and keep our roads safe.
Proving Liability Takes a Team
Proving liability in a truck accident can be harder than a standard car crash. Because a truck accident can involve multiple parties, it’s important to have an experienced legal team on your side.
Those responsible for truck accidents can include:
- The Trucking Company
- The Truck Driver
- Parts Manufacturers
- A Third Party
The personal injury attorneys at Fisher Stark in Asheville, NC can identify all parties which may have contributed to a truck accident.
Truck Accident Damages
At Fisher Stark, we will help you receive compensation for damages, medical expenses, lost wages as well as your human losses, including pain and suffering.
Many victims of truck accidents receive serious, even catastrophic injuries that can last a lifetime. Hiring an attorney is the best way to ensure that compensation matches the damages despite what the insurance companies say.
When truck accident victims are unrepresented, it may result in less compensation than what is fair and reasonable. Fisher Stark understands the fair and just compensation you deserve and will fight for your rights.

Understanding Truck Accident Cases
Large vehicles like semi-trucks, 18 wheelers and tractor trailers can cause complex legal cases when involved in an accident with injuries. In order to get the compensation you deserve, your attorney may:
- Investigate: Victims of truck accidents should immediately contact an attorney after being hit by a tractor trailer. Your lawyer will want to investigate the accident completely because the trucking company’s insurance company will likely investigate the accident to limit their liability. Gathering evidence is more effective the sooner it happens.
- File a Claim: After the investigation is complete and all evidence is gathered, it’s time to file a claim. Your truck accident lawyer will make sure that claim includes compensation for all the damages the truck caused due to negligence and mismanagement.
- Negotiations: A truck accident claim can be settled in many ways, including negotiations. Many insurance companies will want to avoid litigation and will often settle out of court. This is where an experienced attorney can insure your financial compensation matches the liability of the trucking company.
- Litigation/Trial: If negotiations fail, having a trial attorney on your side with evidence from a thorough investigation is critical to getting fair compensation for all damages.
