Justice for Truck Accident Victims in Apex, North Carolina
Apex is located in the Triangle region of North Carolina, just southwest of Raleigh. The city of more than 50,000 people is bordered by some of North Carolina’s busiest highways, including US-64, US-1 and NC-540. I-440, I-540 and I-40 are not far away.
These highways are crowded by trucks and tractor-trailers, and unfortunately truck accidents are common.
Due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved, injuries suffered in truck accidents can be especially serious and are often life-threatening.
There are many types of truck accidents, including:
- Single-vehicle crashes — Often occurring due to driver error or vehicle malfunction, these accidents involve a single truck or tractor-trailer veering off the road or colliding with a surface or obstacle.
- Multi-vehicle crashes — These crashes involve another or multiple vehicles as well as the truck or tractor trailer, sometimes across multiple lanes.
- Jackknife accidents — The trailer portion of the tractor-trailer is separate from the driver’s cab, and sudden turns or movements can cause both portions to go in separate directions, forming an “L” shape. These accidents can be particularly devastating as the truck can cover several lanes of traffic and collide with multiple vehicles.
- Rollover accidents — With their higher centers of gravity, trucks can tip over in sudden movement, tight turns or high winds.
- Cargo-related accidents — Trucks often carry heavy cargo, and sudden movements or faulty equipment can release cargo onto the road, endangering other vehicles.
Riddle & Brantley’s truck accident lawyers have represented clients involved in all of these types of accidents and would love to help you seek justice if we can.
We’re proud of the results we’ve obtained for our clients, including:
- $5,450,000 | Truck Accident & Wrongful Death — Attorneys Gene Riddle and Kurt Dixon represented the surviving relatives of a family of four who was tragically killed when a tractor-trailer rear-ended them on a busy North Carolina highway. After organizing a comprehensive accident investigation and reconstruction, Riddle and Dixon filed suit and ultimately won a total settlement of $5,450,000 through mediation.
- $2,000,000 | Tractor-Trailer Accident — Attorneys Gene Riddle and Jonathan Smith obtained a settlement of $2 million after our client was hit by an 18-wheeler. We hired experts to establish liability and engaged in negotiations with defense counsel for months.
- $1,800,000 | Truck Accident — Managing partner Gene Riddle represented a truck driver who was hit by another truck when it crossed the center line. He suffered serious injuries, including the eventual loss of his left leg below the knee. Riddle ultimately won a total settlement of $1,800,000 from multiple insurance companies, including a workers’ compensation carrier.
