Hundreds of semis and tractor trailers roll across North Carolina Interstates 85, 485 and 77 on any given day. Large trucks and delivery vehicles clog highways 29, 21, 27 and 74.

There are many possible causes of trucking accidents. We bring in experts to analyze the evidence as we build our case for:
- Driver negligence or error: Was the driver fatigued from driving more hours than allowed by law? Does the truck driver have a history of speeding tickets and reckless driving? Was the driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
- Vehicle problems: Was the vehicle properly maintained? Was it properly loaded? Was it overweight, contributing to brake failure?
- Other factors: Were there roadway problems? Bad signage or debris on the road? Did another car contribute to the eventual truck accident?
