Pooler Truck Accident Attorney

We Know What it Takes to Successfully Represent You

If you were injured in a truck accident, you may not realize that truck accidents are much more complicated than a simple auto accident.

Since there are many players involved, having your rights adequately protected and securing appropriate compensation will require some industry know-how.

At the Vaught Law Firm, P.C., we are intimately familiar with truck accidents and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) federal regulations, which govern the trucking industry.

More importantly, we know what it takes to successfully represent the victims of truck accidents.

What sets us apart from the rest?

  • Offering a free initial consultation
  • We are a personable and friendly law firm
  • Selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers®
  • AV Preeminent® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®
  • The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40

We understand that in the aftermath of an accident, the victim and their family may be under considerable emotional and financial stress. We are empathetic about your situation, and we care about your well being.

To ease process, we take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only collect a fee AFTER we obtain a reasonable settlement or verdict on your behalf.

Causes of Truck Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, 3,921 people were killed in large truck accidents and another 104,000 were injured.

While truck accidents claim a small percentage of the total traffic crashes, the ones that do occur tend to cause far greater property damage and injuries than standard auto accidents.

Because semi-trucks pose such a major risk to other motorists, the FMCSA has enacted various federal regulations that prohibit truckers from driving under the influence of alcohol, texting while driving, driving while fatigued, and engaging in other dangerous practices.

Common forms of truck driver negligence:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Texting while driving (banned by federal law)
  • Using a cell phone (banned by federal law)
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving an improperly loaded truck
  • Driving a truck with faulty brakes or worn tires

A truck driver may also cause an accident due to unfamiliarity with the road, or lack of experience driving a commercial vehicle.

  • John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.

    “I contacted John Vaught to represent me in a case recently concerning the death of my wife. He was recommended to me by someone that worked in the legal system while I was asking for a lawyer with knowledge and integrity. From the time of my initial interview with John, throughout the entire case, I found that he is indeed very knowledgeable of law and procedure. I was very impressed that, not only could he tell me what the law was on a given point, he also had the experience to tell me how the process was going to go, what the opposing lawyers were thinking, and even tell me what time frame was normal. Nothing was ever left out or forgotten, the process moved along very smoothly, and John kept me very informed of what was going on and what I needed to do the entire time. I also found John to be a man of integrity. It was very important to me that I not get a lawyer that was only interested in money with no respect or feelings for people. I believe that John is truly a man that cares about people, and is genuinely interested in truth and justice in any situation, an he was completely truthful with me through the whole process.

    “Vaught Law Firm is a wonderful and professional organization. After hearing some tragic news about my mother's sudden change in health, I called the Vaught Law Firm without any prior knowledge of them or any other lawyers in the area. As soon as I called, I received nothing but full unconditional support from the office of John Vaught. He was able to meet with me immediately and gave me his full attention. Mr. Vaught was always professional and offered assistance in everyway possible that he could. He was available after hours and whenever needed. The most impressive aspect about his law firm was how he conducted business. He was very personable and really cared about the case regardless of how it turned out. I admired how he conducted business because it felt like it was more than just business. Furthermore, Mr. Vaught never mentioned any fees and never worked conditional upon any promise of money.
