Truck accidents are some of the most serious motor vehicle accidents that occur on Georgia’s highways. If you or someone you know was involved in a truck accident, chances are high that serious injuries were involved. An Atlanta personal injury attorney at Robbins Law, PC can help ensure your personal injury claim against the responsible parties, regardless of the causes of the truck accident, holds them liable for damages.
There are many factors that will help swing a personal injury lawsuit in your favor. One of the keys to bringing a successful claim is to establish the cause of the accident and showing that the driver or some third party was responsible.
Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:
- Excessive speeds
- Improperly loaded vehicles
- Poor maintenance
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Driver fatigue
In many cases, outside factors contribute to a trucking accident. While the driver will be mostly culpable for the accident, in some cases, a third party may also be found negligent. The trucking company for example, may be pushing their drivers too hard or failing to maintain their vehicles. Truck loaders may make the truck unsafe for highway speeds by loading the truck improperly. A skilled attorney, familiar with Georgia laws can help ensure you file a successful case against all responsible parties.
