Types of Truck Accidents in Georgia
When big trucks make left turns, they must turn with enough time to where oncoming cars do not have to slam on their brakes to avoid an accident. If a truck driver gets in a hurry and improperly makes a left turn, catastrophic results can occur. If you have been injured in an accident of this kind, we will fight for you to make sure the truck driver and truck company are held accountable for your injuries.
Rear-end collisions are a common type of truck accident. Usually this is due to the truck driver following too closely or speeding. Because of the size of these large trucks, truck drivers must allow a certain amount of space between the truck and the car in front of the truck because of the difficulty it takes to quickly stop a truck. When rear-end collisions occur, we have the knowledge to investigate why and how the collision occurred to make sure the truck driver and truck company are held responsible.
Driving Too Fast For Conditions
Many truck drivers are on a tight schedule to get to all of their scheduled deliveries. This can become a problem when bad weather occurs. When weather conditions such as heavy rain are present on the road, truck drivers are supposed to significantly lower their speed under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Many accidents occur because of the truck driver's failure to slow down under these conditions, which is a direct violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. We are very familiar with these regulations, and will use this knowledge to help maximize the value of your case.
Many truck drivers are on a tight schedule with many deliveries to make. As a result, truck drivers in this situation resort to speeding to stay on time. With the size of the trucks, this can be a deadly combination. We know how to investigate these types of cases to prove the truck driver was speeding and the reason why the truck driver was speeding.
With trucks constantly on the road, they naturally undergo wear and tear to their brakes. Truck companies have a duty to keep their trucks' brakes in proper working order. When there is a failure to maintain the brakes, devastating results can occur. We know the experts to hire to prove this occurred.
