Georgia Truck Accident Lawyer
Accidents on the interstate or other roadways that involve a commercial vehicle, including a truck, semi truck, or tractor-trailer, raise special issues under the law. If you or a loved one has been in a truck accident or a tractor trailer crash as the result of a negligent driver you may be entitled to compensation.
Due to the size and weight of big rigs or 18 wheelers, the injuries that result from these types of accidents can be extremely serious and catastrophic. It is not uncommon to sustain injuries such as severe brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia), or death from a tractor-trailer crash. Please contact our Macon law office to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss the accident.
Trucking companies are highly regulated by state governments. A truck accident can occur for many reasons, including speeding, the driver's failure to obtain adequate rest as required by law, illegal use of drugs and alcohol, poor training, and driving too many hours. The requirement that trucking companies keep specific records pertaining to things, such as drug testing of their drivers and driving hours, can make the cases highly complex.
Our truck accident attorneys work with our clients to help them understand what damages they may be entitled to from the accident. The insurance companies will routinely deny liability or offer far less than the full value of a truck accident case. They have their own team of attorneys and experts working in their corner to reduce the amount of money they have to pay to injury victims. Our firm works exclusively for our clients to get the damages and compensation they deserve. We explore what claims they may have and make sure that vital evidence is preserved. We diligently pursue the case and file legal action if the insurance company isn't willing to negotiate in good faith.
