Semi-Truck Plunges off Overpass in Fayetteville, NC Causing Injuries

ABC 11 reported a shocking incident that unfolded on Tuesday, January 2, 2024. Tragically a semi truck crashed into a parked car and another vehicle before it finally careened off an overpass, coming to a halt on Skibo Road, leaving a trail of destruction and chaos in its wake. The incident has resulted in multiple injuries and a power outage in the surrounding area of Fayetteville, NC.

According to eyewitnesses, the harrowing incident occurred on Bragg Boulevard when the out-of-control truck collided with a parked car and a woman driving in front of it. Following the initial impact, the truck hurtled off the overpass, dramatically descending onto Skibo Road below.

Emergency services were immediately dispatched to the scene, and both the truck driver and the woman in the other vehicle were rushed to the hospital. Thankfully, authorities have confirmed that their injuries are non-life threatening. The identities of those involved have not been disclosed at this time.

The Fayetteville Police Department is currently leading an investigation into the circumstances that led to the truck driver losing control and veering off the road. Preliminary inquiries suggest that factors such as mechanical failure, reckless driving, or other external variables may have played a role. Authorities are working diligently to gather evidence and determine the exact cause of the incident.

Truck Accident Attorney Discusses Seeking Justice and Compensation After Semi Truck Accidents

We recently sat down with esteemed truck accident attorney Kristen Beightol, Esq., based in North Carolina, to discuss the crucial steps accident victims and their families can take when seeking justice and compensation after a devastating truck accident. With her extensive experience in handling semi truck accident lawsuits, Attorney Beightol shared some insights on the legal process, options available to victims, and the importance of seeking professional guidance. Join us as we delve into this important conversation and shed light on the path towards recovery and accountability in the aftermath of truck accidents.

Editor Darla Medina (DM): Thank you for being here, Kristen.

Attorney Kristen Beightol (KB): Thank you, Darla. It's my pleasure to be here and provide some insights on this important topic.

DM: Absolutely. So, in a situation like the recent truck accident in Fayetteville, where victims have suffered injuries and property damage, what options do they have in terms of pursuing a civil case against the responsible parties?

KB: When individuals are involved in a truck accident and believe that negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the truck driver, trucking company, or other parties contributed to the incident, they may have grounds for a civil case. In such cases, accident victims and their families can seek compensation for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

DM: That's helpful to know, Kristen. Could you walk us through the general process of filing a civil case in truck accident situations?

KB: Certainly, Darla. The process typically begins with a thorough investigation of the accident, collecting evidence, and identifying liable parties. This may involve reviewing police reports, obtaining witness statements, examining maintenance records, and analyzing any available surveillance footage. Once liability is established, we can move forward with the legal proceedings.

DM: And what role does an attorney play in this process?

KB: An experienced truck accident attorney can guide accident victims and their families through every step of the process. We can help assess the extent of damages, negotiate with insurance companies, and build a strong case on behalf of our clients. Our goal is to seek maximum compensation and ensure that the rights of the victims are protected.

DM: That's reassuring to hear, Kristen. For those who may be considering pursuing a civil case after a truck accident, what advice would you give them?

KB: My advice would be to seek legal representation as soon as possible. Time is of the essence in gathering evidence, preserving crucial information, and meeting any applicable deadlines. Consult with an experienced truck accident attorney who can evaluate your case, explain your rights, and provide personalized guidance based on your specific circumstances.

DM: Thank you, Kristen, for shedding light on this matter. Your expertise is truly valuable in helping accident victims and their families navigate through such challenging situations.

KB: It was my pleasure, Darla. I hope this information proves helpful to those who may need it.
