Recovering from a Tractor-Trailer Accident

Ask any Atlanta commuter—the daily drive to and from work is not only frustrating, but also fraught with peril. Tractor trailer accidents happen all too often on the interstate, and they can have fatal consequences for those involved.

In the event of a tractor-trailer accident, the state of Georgia will conduct a thorough investigation; however, a trucking accident lawyer can join the state’s investigation team and help determine the root cause of the accident. Some common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Underqualified truck drivers
  • Poor tractor-trailer maintenance
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Interstate Trucking Laws

The laws that govern trucking accident procedures were crafted specifically protect innocent citizens who have been wrongfully injured in tractor-trailer accidents. But if you’re like most Atlanta residents, “legalese” can be difficult to interpret and apply to your particular case. A trucking accident attorney can help you better understand complex rules and regulations and gain the compensation in your time of need.

Quick Settlements

In the event of a tractor-trailer accident, trucking companies and their insurance providers will attempt to quickly resolve the situation with a settlement. However, it takes time to determine the full extent of the damages incurred by an accident, and a quick settlement will relieve insurance and trucking companies of future financial responsibility for things like long-term medical services. With the help of an experienced trucking accident lawyer, you’ll be better equipped to avoid a quick settlement and gain the compensation that you or your loved one deserve.
