Charleston DUI Truck Accident Attorney
Top Trial Lawyers Representing Victims of Truck Crashes
The sheer nature and size of large commercial trucks make them perhaps the some of the most dangerous vehicles we share the road with. When a truck driver under the influence gets behind the wheel, the accidents that result can be catastrophic and, in worst cases, even fatal. Pursuing legal action after these types of accidents can be especially complex, because in addition to a criminal lawsuit that is brought against the trucker, you may also be eligible to secure compensation for the suffering you’ve endured.

At Pierce, Sloan, Kennedy & Early LLC, our Charleston truck accident lawyers make it our mission to provide you with direct access to skilled and experienced legal professionals who are committed to the success of your case.
