Georgia Commercial Truck Lawyers Who Understand The Industry
Our success in our truck crash injury practice is directly related to our knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, our experience successfully litigating varied cases and our genuine commitment to our clients.
Having been completely immersed in the industry for many years, we have valuable insight into the true issues that commonly cause truck accidents as well as the defense mechanisms that truck and insurance companies often elicit. We often know what to expect; therefore, we know what to prepare for in our cases.
AA Law has provided assistance to thousands of clients in highway accident cases on Interstate 16, I-75, I-475 and other Georgia roadways involving:
- Log and dump trucks
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Drivers who are impaired or driving under the influence
- Drivers with inadequate training
- Negligent truck maintenance
While we always strive to achieve the most favorable verdict and settlement possible in our cases, we are also committed to making a difference in the community with the cases we handle. Especially in the trucking industry, companies tend to put profit over safety in many circumstances, leading to life-threatening repercussions for both the truckers and other drivers on the road.
In many instances, it is the commitment of the injured and, in cases of fatalities, those left behind to pursue a case that forces a trucking company to change its policies. This, in turn, helps ensure that the devastating loss and tragedy will not be repeated and inflicted on another unsuspecting family.
Let us help you determine who is responsible for your truck accident and hold the appropriate parties accountable for your losses.
We Answer Your Frequently Asked Questions About Semi-Truck Accidents
Accidents involving semi trucks and commercial vehicles can be complicated. AA Law was established in 1992, and we have decades of combined experience. Here, we answer some of the frequently asked questions about truck crashes.
In Georgia, how is fault determined in an accident?
Georgia is considered an “at-fault” state, which means that if you caused an accident, you (or, more likely, your insurance company) will have to pay for the damages and injuries that were caused by the accident. Sometimes, determining fault is more complicated, and both parties contributed to the accident. In that case, the law in Georgia allows for a comparative fault analysis. Whichever party was less than 50% responsible can recover damages from the party who was more at fault.
In a commercial truck accident, how is fault determined?
In a truck accident, there are more parties who could potentially be negligent or liable. These include the following situations:
- The owner of the truck could be negligent for not maintaining the truck properly.
- The driver of the truck could be liable for breaking a traffic law.
- The employer could be liable for hiring a truck driver they shouldn’t have hired.
- A manufacturer could be liable if a part on or in the truck was faulty.
In a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial vehicle or semi truck, it is important to investigate every possibility to uncover who was at fault for the accident. When it comes to investigations, we at AA Law use all available investigative resources and thoroughly examine every possible party.
How are truck accident cases different than car accident cases?
Usually, truck accidents can involve completely different circumstances than car crashes. For one, the size and weight of the truck and its cargo can make it difficult for the driver to stop and/or react in an emergency situation. Trucks also require a lot of space to make a turn, and turning can be difficult. Injuries can also be much more severe in a truck accident. We are truck accident lawyers who have won millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
Will my case go to trial?
Every case is different, with its own unique set of facts and circumstances. In complicated truck accident cases, settlement offers are likely. However, we are always prepared to take a case all the way to trial if that’s what is best for you. We want to see you recover damages for your accident and injuries.
If you get a settlement offer in your case, we will review it with you carefully to make sure that you understand what it includes, and we will help you think of everything so that you can decide if it will be enough to cover your damages. If not, we have the resources, time and energy to take your case to trial and fight for you.
