A Georgia Truck Accident Can Lead To Serious Injuries

Driving the busy highways of Georgia can put you at risk for a truck crash.  Truck accidents in Atlanta, GA and other big cities with their congested roads are even more common.  Commercial vehicles such as trucks and tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, big rig, and semi trucks all contribute to serious injuries on the Georgia highways.

How Truck Accidents Differ From Other Motor Vehicle Accidents

The trucking industry is strictly regulated by state and federal government agencies to ensure that trucks and their drivers operate safely.  The number of hours a driver may be on the road each day, how much weight a truck may haul, equipment maintenance, are just some of the areas  regulated.  Unlike drivers of personal vehicles, truckers must keep logs and closely account for their time.

There may be many responsible parties to a truck accident.  Fleet owners, drivers, truck manufacturers, and road maintenance crews may share some of the blame. This often makes properly filing your claim for a truck accident more complex than an accident between private passenger vehicles.

When something goes wrong and an accident occurs involving a vehicle operated by a large trucking company, an insurance rep may be at the scene before the accident is even cleared from the roadway.  Since corporations and big insurance companies are involved there is even more pressure for you to sign away your rights for the compensation that you deserve. It is important to hire an experienced Georgia truck accident lawyer that is not afraid to stand up to large corporations.
