Trucking accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents that take place on our Georgia roadways. Large semi-trucks and tractor trailers are hauling cargo across our nation’s highways. There are far too many truck accidents that result in fatalities across Georgia, leaving families heartbroken and wanting answers. If you or a loved one has been involved with a semi-truck or tractor trailer accident, it is so important to seek legal representation. An attorney is necessary for these types of accidents for multiple reasons:
- Semi-truck or tractor trailer accidents require the knowledge and expertise of an experienced attorney. There is evidence that must be preserved in these types of accidents that does not exist in typical car accidents. An experienced attorney knows what information is required and the correct steps to take to ensure that the truth about how a tractor trailer accident happened does not get buried by a large corporation’s team of lawyers.
- Attorneys notify the trucking company of the accident so that evidence is preserved, and your rights are protected. When you are involved in a truck accident the last thing on your mind is notifying the company. You are likely focused on getting the medical help you need, altering your work life, and making sure your loved ones are provided for. That is why an attorney is necessary. The trucking company MUST be notified of the accident so that the evidence is preserved, and so that they can be held accountable if they fail to do so.
- Attorneys are able to reconstruct the accident when needed. Many times, attorneys use the knowledge of experts to help them with their cases. These experts are often used to help inspect the scene of the accident and the vehicles themselves for evidence that the most people would not know to look for. Attorneys have access to these experts to help you win your case.
