Truck Accident Attorneys in Wilmington
Zero Tolerance for Negligent Big Rig Drivers
Our Wilmington attorneys at Daniel Pleasant Holoman LLC bring 50+ years of combined experience to every personal injury case. By refusing to shy away from cases involving catastrophic injury or wrongful death, our experienced lawyers have built a reputation as tough and successful litigators and mediators. Though we focus primarily on medical malpractice, we are also equipped to represent victims of big rig accidents across the Southeastern U.S.
Truck accidents are among the most devastating automotive accidents. The size and weight of big rigs alone pose a huge threat; truck drivers themselves can also endanger lives if they are sleep deprived or lack proper training. We understand how truly destructive truck accidents can be. Let us worry about getting you the compensation and justice you deserve while you rest and recover.
Truck Accident Statistics in the U.S.
Truck accidents tend to disproportionately affect non-truck drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists who share the road with big rigs. Though it is never the fault of the victim in an accident involving another driver’s negligence, it doesn’t hurt to remain vigilant while driving around large trucks. Serious truck accidents can result in serious injuries including catastrophic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
Recent statistics about truck accidents in the United States include:
- In 2017, 4,889 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes, a 9 percent increase from the previous year. A total of 4,136 people died in large truck crashes in 2018.
- 16 percent of these deaths were truck drivers or occupants, 67 percent were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcyclists.
- 11 percent of all motor vehicle crash deaths in 2018 occurred as a result of large truck crashes.
- In 2018, 50 percent of big rig crash deaths occurred between the hours of 6 a.m. and 3 p.m., compared to 30 percent of crash deaths not involving large trucks.
To us, you are never another statistic. We always make sure victims of truck accidents and their families receive the compassionate yet tough representation they deserve.

We Are Not a Case Mill Firm
We keep a low case volume so that we can dedicate the massive amount of time, energy, and resources that each case deserves.
Primary Focus on Serious Injury Cases
We handle serious medical malpractice cases. Other law firms around the country refer us cases they are not equipped to take on or are afraid to handle.
Trained & Experienced Trial Lawyers
Many lawyers who advertise for and take injury cases are either unwilling or afraid to take cases to trial if necessary to achieve a fair result, but we have extensive experience with actual medical malpractice and nursing home negligence jury trials. We prepare every single case as if we will go to trial.
A Focused, Creative, Collaborative Team Approach
Our attorneys work together on virtually all of our cases in order to secure the best possible outcome. Three minds are always better than one.
