Although car accidents are very traumatic, truck wrecks can be even more devastating. Driving beside large trucks can be a real fear of many Georgia drivers since our roadways are a mega hub for transporting various cargo across the nation. In the event of a crash between a car and a large truck, someone almost always ends up injured or even catastrophically killed. This results in a wrongful death action. Whether it be because of manufacturing issues or driver negligence, truck accidents are scary situations all across our nation.
We hold trucking companies responsible for paying for any injuries, deaths, or damage an accident may cause that involves one of their trucks. It’s important to remember that not every good car accident lawyer is a good truck accident lawyer. Trucking accidents, and how you handle them legally, are very different than car accidents. It is critical to involve an attorney immediately after a trucking accident, or critical evidence can disappear and be lost forever.
Even the most well-trained and safety-conscious truck driver is at risk of engaging in driving behaviors that could lead to a crash on today’s crowded highways. You will often find trucking companies are negligent in:
- Lack of Driver Training
- Truck Maintenance and Upkeep
- Failure to Inspect
