Injuries suffered in a car crash can be extremely serious and can have life-changing, long-term effects on victims. It is the responsibility of every motorist to handle his or her vehicle in a way that ensures the safety of other drivers. If a driver fails to control his or her vehicle, the driver should be held accountable for the harm that was caused.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you need strong representation from an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands the law and will fight for your rights. At the Wigger Law Firm, Inc., in North Charleston, we have extensive experience in a wide variety of car accident cases, including SUV rollovers and many others. We have served clients in the Low Country, across South Carolina and in other states around the nation.
The Representation You Need After an Auto Wreck
The insurance companies want to pay as little as possible to settle your case. They will try to minimize the seriousness of your injuries and try to put the blame for the accident on you. We know the value of your claim, and we know how to go about seeking the compensation you deserve.
We can handle accidents caused by numerous factors, including:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Failure to follow safety signals
- Improper merge
Our Charleston car accident attorneys also represent clients who have been injured in single vehicle accidents. Just because there wasn't another car involved doesn't mean that you have no options. We have pursued actions on behalf of clients who have been injured in accidents resulting from vehicle defects, tire failure, road defects, seat belt failure and airbag failure.

Experienced North Charleston Truck Accident Attorneys
Accidents involving large trucks, big rigs, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers have the potential to result in catastrophic injuries to the victims. Professional truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other drivers. They have undergone specialized training and are bound by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's safety regulations. These types of cases can be extremely complex because there are usually multiple parties who can be held accountable. Beyond the driver who caused the accident, the driver's employer, the owner of the truck, the truck manufacturer and others can all share in the liability for your injuries. We will determine and seek compensation from all responsible parties.
If you have been injured in a trucking crash, it is critical that you discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. Trucking company insurers require their drivers to call immediately to begin an investigation. Many of them will be on the scene before the truck is even towed away.
Trucking companies can start deleting records in as little as 180 days from the wreck.
