I sustained serious injuries during a motorcycle crash in Wilmington, NC. A bakery truck turned left in front of me, and I was thrown from my bike in the collision. Because of my broken femur, I couldn’t return to work for over a month. Is the truck driver responsible for my lost wages?

At Speaks Law Firm, we’re happy to hear you are recovering from your injuries. Frankly, you were luckier than many other crash victims. North Carolina motorcycle accidents where a rider is thrown from his vehicle have an extremely high fatality rate, and truck collisions in general often are deadly.

If the other driver failed to exercise reasonable caution on the road, he could be found legally liable for all the results of the accident. The fact that the truck turned left in front of you suggests that you probably have a valid legal claim. However, until your case has been thoroughly investigated by a North Carolina motorcycle accident lawyer, it’s premature to draw any conclusion about liability.

The fact you were struck by a commercial vehicle also is intriguing. If the truck driver was following instructions as part of his work responsibilities, it is possible the company he works for could be found liable for your North Carolina truck accident. An investigation to determine the limits of liability for your injuries will include looking at:

  • The company’s safety training for drivers
  • How the company supervises its drivers
  • The company’s delivery schedule
  • The accident records of this driver and all other company drivers

TheNorth Carolina auto accident lawyers of Speaks Law Firm want to remind you that if you were injured due to the negligence of another person, that person could be held liable for all the consequences of the accident, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • The costs of your medical care
  • Long-term disability or disfigurement
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages due to absence from your job
  • Reductions in your lifetime earning potential due to your injuries

If you are interested in seeking compensation for any of these categories, connect with Speaks Law Firm at 980-237-6948 or toll-free at 877-593-4233. Our North Carolina personal injury law firm can work with you to get the best recovery or settlement available for your case.
