Truck Accident Lawyers in Atlanta & Marietta, GA

Crashes involving semi-trucks, also called tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers, cause more catastrophic injuries and deaths than any other type of auto crash.

Truck AccidentThese trucks dwarf other vehicles on the road in both size and weight, leaving very little room for error or fatigue. We share the road with millions of tractor-trailers every day. And every day, hundreds of preventable truck crashes happen all over the country. Trucking companies must ensure that trucks are maintained, drivers are trained, and that their drivers actually follow the rules.

Investigating tractor-trailer crashes can be complex, expensive, and time-consuming. This is true for many reasons, one of which is that transportation corporations hire experts and investigators who are present at the scene within hours—sometimes even minutes—after a crash. Those investigators speak to witnesses, and those experts gather evidence, to prove that the truck driver did nothing wrong, and that the crash was your fault. It is critical that you hire a lawyer as soon as possible to combat what the other side is doing.

Tractor-trailer crashes are often caused by things that are easily preventable when a company cares about running a safe operation. Some examples are driver fatigue, distraction, substance abuse, driver error, and failing to follow basic safety rules. All too often, however, trucking companies place unrealistic—and sometimes almost impossible—demands on drivers, with predictable results. Drivers push beyond their limits to get the job done and remain employed, and the public is put at significant risk on our roadways. Industry studies show that driver fatigue is the number one cause of tractor-trailer crashes. Trucking companies must do better, and injured survivors must hold them accountable.
