Tractor-Trailer Collisions

As more and more commercial vehicles, including tractor-trailers, buses, dump trucks and similar vehicles, share the road with passenger vehicles each year, the number of serious injuries and fatalities involving trucking accidents has increased significantly. In fact, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over 500,000 commercial tractor-trailers and large trucks were involved in accidents in 2010 alone with over 100,000 people sustaining serious injuries and over 5000 people dying in these crashes.

One of the most terrifying experiences an automobile driver can encounter on the roadway is an accident with a large commercial vehicle. Because of their size and weight, accidents involving commercial trucks usually cause serious injuries or death. Federal regulations set minimum standards for the operation of commercial vehicles and mandate regular inspections and maintenance. Sadly, truck companies and their drivers do not always adhere to these standards.

If you or someone you know was injured or if you lost someone in a trucking accident, it is important for you contact an experienced trucking accident attorney immediately. In Georgia, there are time limits in which to assert a claim and recover for your injuries and damages sustained as a result of a trucking accident. Once this time has expired, it may be impossible to receive any payment for your medical bills and lost wages or recover damages for your pain and suffering, permanent disability or loss of life. In addition, trucking companies are required by law to retain certain documents, including driver log books, drug testing records, maintenance and inspection reports, for a limited period of time. If these documents are lost or discarded, it may be impossible to prove your case.
