Things to Look for in a North Carolina Truck Accident Lawyer
You have many options when seeking an attorney to represent you in your truck accident injury claim. Here are just a few of the factors to consider:
Experience Handling Truck Accident Cases
There are many personal injury lawyers in North Carolina, but if you’ve been injured in a truck or tractor-trailer accident, you’ll want an attorney who has handled many truck accident cases throughout their career.
Truck accident cases can be extremely complex, due to the injuries suffered and the amount of evidence. Liability is often contested by the insurance company or defense counsel, and proving fault sometimes requires a comprehensive investigation, often involving accident reconstructionists or trucking safety experts.
At Riddle & Brantley, our firm has handled hundreds of truck accident injury cases in more than 35 years serving the people of this great state. We’ve recovered millions of dollars in compensation for victims of truck accidents (see disclaimer below).

A Record of Success
When seeking a truck accident lawyer, you’ll want to look for an attorney with a record of securing justice and compensation in these cases. While every case is different and there are no guarantees of any particular outcome, settlements and judgments can give you a good idea of a truck accident lawyer’s experience and expertise handling these often difficult cases.

- $9,450,000 | Truck Accident & Wrongful Death — We fought for justice for surviving relatives of a family of four who were killed in a terrible tractor-trailer accident near Fayetteville.

Prior to trial, we were able to secure more than $9 million in total compensation in separate settlements with multiple parties.
- $1,800,000 | Truck Accident — Our client eventually lost his left leg below the knee as a result of a truck accident. He also suffered other extensive injuries in the crash, which occurred while he was on the job. Attorney Gene Riddle fought for justice in the case, working out settlements totaling $1.8 million with the truck insurance company and workers’ comp carrier.
- $1,900,000 | Truck Accident & Pedestrian Accident — Our client was walking across a parking lot when she was struck by a cement truck.
