Protecting You From Negligent And Inadequately Trained Semi-Truck Drivers
When the inadequate training of a truck driver results in a serious accident, the driver may be at fault, but the trucking company should also be held responsible. At AA Law, we will fight to hold them both responsible. From our law office in Macon, attorney Paul Ayerbe and our team of lawyers are not only committed to maximizing your compensation to help you recover from your injuries, but also to genuinely making a difference with your recovery by pursuing your case.
Holding Commercial Drivers And Companies Accountable In Georgia
We have been helping injured clients who were involved in accidents caused by inadequate truck driver training for decades.
Our truck accident cases often involve:
- Improper or inadequate driver’s training by the trucking company
- Improper or inadequate trucking safety training by the trucking company
- Inadequate or no background experience check on drivers
Negligent drivers and companies should be required to take responsibility for careless actions that caused harm to others. By filing a lawsuit against irresponsible drivers and companies, you can make a conscious effort to stop unsafe business practices and protect the public from future tragedies.
AA Law will take that stand with you by preparing an effective defense strategy with the help of knowledgeable industry experts. If your accident was caused by improper training, we will tirelessly strive to prove it. It can be sometimes challenging to identify all of the parties responsible for your injuries.
If you believe that inadequate training was not the only factor in your accident, we will work to discover all possible parties that may have contributed to the accident, including shippers, brokers or even insurance companies in some cases. Our attorneys have the experience, knowledge and resources to thoroughly investigate and gather all relevant evidence on behalf of our personal injury clients’ cases.
Case In Point: Improper Commercial Truck Driver Training
CASE SPOTLIGHT: AA Law obtained a record recovery for an injured mother when a truck driver who had been improperly trained slammed into the back of her car on Interstate 16 near Dublin, Georgia. A truck driver claimed that our client’s vehicle was traveling too slowly on the highway and that the slow speed caused the wreck.
Our founding attorney, Paul Ayerbe, was able to prove that the truck driver was improperly trained in his scanning or looking technique that all truckers use. During the video deposition of the truck driver, Paul Ayerbe asked the driver to show him the scan by placing his hands on an imaginary steering wheel and performing the procedure. The truck driver looked away from the front of the imaginary vehicle for over 30 seconds, mimicking his scan of his mirrors, instruments and side windows. The demonstration showed that the trucker had been improperly trained in his scan technique to look away for a dangerously long time.
The trucking company faced with this damaging evidence resolved the case for $4.18 million. It is believed that the trucking company’s training relating to scans has been changed as well.
