Truck Crashes

Truck crashes in Georgia are happening at an alarming rate and the numbers are increasing more and more every single day. Did you know that an average of 31 people die every week as a result of being involved in a vehicular accident? Of those 31, one out of six involves a semi-truck. How many more people have to lose their lives in order for higher safety standards to become a reality? Truck drivers are expected to live up to high — and often unrealistic — expectations in order to meet a deadline and get the job done. Because of that, fatigue and falling asleep at the wheel are a common cause of truck accidents. Be it an issue like fatigue, speeding, or distracted driving, negligent driving causes injuries all the time. The victims of these injuries and their families are affected more than anyone and should be compensated accordingly.

What Georgia Law Says About Truck Crashes

In the state of Georgia, the fault rule applies not only to car accidents, but also to truck crashes. If a driver is negligent in any way and causes an accident, he or she will be held liable under the law. Furthermore, if the accident isn't the truck driver's fault, but was caused because of a mechanical malfunction with the truck itself, the manufacturer will be liable and the injured can still seek compensation.

In order to receive compensation, there are a few prerequisites you want to take care of right there at the accident:

  • Call the police. Getting the authorities involved right away officially documents the accident.
  • Collect evidence. Taking pictures of the scene, license plates, and IDs as well as getting statements from witnesses is helpful.

Seek medical attention. Having a doctor you trust to look over your injuries is crucial for both your healing and for your case.
