If you were hurt in a truck accident or a family member was fatally injured, our personal injury team can help you seek compensation from the truck driver, their employer, or the company that built or conducted maintenance on the truck. We can collect evidence to prove that the at-fault party’s negligence entitles you to financial recovery for your medical bills, income loss, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
Building a wrongful death or personal injury case can be challenging and time-consuming. Our Florence truck accident lawyer will help you identify the right parties to pursue and assign an accurate financial value to your damages. With responsive legal support from our team at Anastopoulo Law Firm, you can focus on your physical recovery and family while we focus on your financial recovery.
Our Team Could Help Resolve Your Truck Accident Case without Going to Court
When our truck accident team represents you in Florence, we take steps to identify the at-fault party, prove their liability, and negotiate a financial settlement. With more than 25 years of legal experience, our team will clarify local and state laws and help you understand how they affect your case. We also gather evidence to support your right to recovery.
Because our team and the at-fault driver’s representatives did not witness your accident, we must rely on evidence to tell the story of the collision. Once examined, this evidence could help us resolve the case. The documents and evidence we collect for you and use to build your case file may include:
- Medical records of your truck accident injuries
- Employment records
- The truck crash report
- Your written prognosis
- Photos and videos of the collision, accident scene, or your injuries
- Witness statements from those present when the truck accident occurred
We will also listen to your version of events and use your own written statement to guide our investigation. In addition, we can seek some particularly critical evidence that the trucking company possesses, including video footage from the truck’s dashcam and the trucker’s driving logs.

Recoverable Economic Damages
When we help you pursue compensation after your Florence truck accident, we start by identifying the at-fault party and valuing your case before requesting recovery of the following types of economic damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future loss of income
- Property repair or replacement
- In-home assistance and support
With our help, you can assess the worth of your economic damages and build a case file that contains evidence of their value. We will also help you prove the at-fault party’s negligence and your right to this compensation.
Recoverable Non-Economic Damages
A collision with a large truck can leave you with many non-economic damages in addition to your economic ones. Our personal injury team will help you assign a monetary value to the following:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional angst
According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) statistics, 4,862 truck accidents resulted in fatalities in 2018. If your family lost a loved one in a truck accident fatality, you may be entitled to recover the costs of their funeral and burial, as well as compensation for your loss of consortium, companionship, guidance, and support.
Your Potential Truck Accident Lawsuit has an Expiration Date
South Carolina law determines the amount of time you have to file a civil lawsuit against the liable party. According to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, you generally have three years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. If you do not file before the statute of limitations expires, you will like encounter one of the following obstacles:
- You may not be able to file it at all.
- The court will dismiss the case immediately and without being heard.
If either of these occurs, you lose the opportunity to legally compel compensation from the liable party. Without the legal ability to seek compensation, you risk bearing the entire financial burden of the accident on your own. With sufficient notice, our personal injury team can ensure compliance with the filing deadline and minimize the risk of jeopardizing your lawsuit.
