Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyer

Whether it is an 18-wheeler or a smaller truck, an Atlanta truck accident can have a devastating impact on the victim and their families. Some of the deadliest accidents that happen on Atlanta roadways, the size differential between a large truck and a car, motorcycle or pedestrian is tremendous and not a fair fight. While a truck driver may not even know they were in an accident, the same cannot be said for the victim. Most commonly, truck accidents happen at high speeds on the Georgia highways and larger streets which causes additional chance of injury of death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an Atlanta truck accident, get in touch with Evans Injury Attorneys todays to discuss your legal options further. We are ready to get started today.

Who’s Responsible for Truck Accidents?

More complicated than a typical car on car accident, truck accidents often have multiple responsible parties. While these cases are more complicated and hard fought, they are also often worth much more money because of the large insurance policies owned by the common defendants in these types of accidents. Potential responsible defendants include:

  • Truck Driver: Driver error is a common cause of a truck accident and the driver can be held responsible. Truck drivers work long hours and while they require special training and licensing, driving mistakes for various reasons happen all the time.
  • Truck Company: A driver is usually working and driving for their employer and in that capacity the company will be held responsible for the actions of the employees under them and carry large insurance policies to cover accidents that cause injuries and death, which is almost always the case in any truck accident.
  • Truck Manufacturing Company: Bad brakes and other mechanical and part issues on a truck that cause an accident will be the responsibility of the truck manufacturing company and their contracted parts producers.

Just because Atlanta truck accidents can be worth a lot of money, does not mean that the responsible party is quick to admit any type of liability or hand over money to the victim and their families. Truck accident defendants and their insurance companies are notorious for their delay and low ball offer tactics which is one of the many reasons that you want to hire a law firm that has experience with this very specific type of personal injury or wrongful death accident case. Even if you played a role in causing your truck accident, working with an attorney can help you file a winning case worth a lot of money.
