Truck Accidents in Georgia
Tractor trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads in Georgia, weighing as much as 80,000 pounds. This means that, in the event of an accident, they are capable of causing catastrophic damages. Tractor-trailer accidents do not happen as commonly as other passenger vehicles, but when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., it was reported that over 119,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents. If your life has been affected by a truck crash that is not your fault, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
