Your Case Against A Trucking Company Can Make A Difference In The Lives Of Others
When people are involved in truck accidents, they usually pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages and damages for the pain they have suffered. Often, personal injury lawyers who are not familiar with the laws and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations surrounding truck driving in Georgia don’t give punitive damages much consideration. Not us.
At AA Law, founded in 1992, our personal injury attorneys have 50 years of combined experience and have earned millions of dollars on behalf of personal injury clients, injured in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including commercial truck accidents.
Seeking Punitive Damages In Negligent Truck Driving Accidents
Punitive damages are a specific category of damages designed to punish those who are guilty of negligent behaviors, actions and wrongdoing. By allowing injured victims to recover punitive damages, the state of Georgia intends and hopes that when faced with the idea of punitive damages, companies will be motivated to make positive changes in their conduct and safety measures in the way they do business, thereby ultimately making the roads we travel safer.
More often than not, truck accidents are complicated and caused by multiple reasons, sometimes including factors that go beyond simply being an accident or coincidence. Negligence and carelessness on behalf of the driver, the trucking company, the shipper or other parties may play a big role in accidents that could have been avoided. Sometimes, accidents are even fatal. We want to help hold others accountable and responsible when unnecessary deaths or injuries occur.
At AA Law, we strive to make your case count. We understand how important financial compensation is for your recovery, but we also realize the opportunity for change that your case can bring about when it comes to holding the trucking company accountable for its conscious disregard for the safety of the public.
Changing Lives: Georgia Attorneys Seek Punitive Damages In Truck Accidents
An employee of a tree service company with no commercial driver’s license (CDL) and no safety training, was put behind the wheel of a company truck. He lost control of his vehicle and hit a car. AA Law obtained $1 million for the passenger of the car who sustained a broken leg from the accident, and the case also caused the tree service company to change its driver policies – ultimately resulting in more stringent company safety policies that will protect the public.
