Truck Accidents in Georgia
Hundreds of thousands of truck accidents occur every year in the U.S. due to the recklessness of others. These accidents are happening more and more every year due to negligent reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. When truck drivers are not focused on the roads as they are supposed to be, a truck accident can occur in the blink of an eye and turn your life upside-down. Truck accidents are known for being incredibly catastrophic due to the fact that they are some of the largest vehicles on our roads.
Georgia truck accidents do not happen as common as other accidents on our roads but, when they do occur, they are some of the most horrific accidents on our roadways. Truck drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roads but, unfortunately, many truck drivers still cause accidents every year. On top of that, a variety of other parties could be held liable for truck accidents as well. These parties include trucking companies, manufacturers, cargo loaders, and more.
