A Premier Semi-Truck Accident Attorney Serving Bibb County and All of Georgia
When a car or motorcycle is involved in an accident with a truck, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, the risk of catastrophic injury or death is high. The weight and size of trucks and commercial trucks create heightened risk of:
- Accidents — Such large vehicles are difficult to stop quickly and do not easily make emergency maneuvers.
- Injury — The size and weight of tractor-trailers mean that even a relatively minor impact can create serious injuries or fatalities.
In Central Georgia, pulpwood trucks or timber trucks sometimes come out of the woods and onto our highways without having been properly stacked. An unbalanced load is a potentially serious issue for any type of 18-wheeler, but especially for timber trucks hauling large, extremely heavy tree trunks.
We also offer our assistance with a variety of other truck and 18-wheeler accidents, including:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Overloaded trucks
- Truck accidents involving drugs and alcohol
- Truck accidents caused by tire blowouts/treads
Federal Regulations Are a Key Component to an Accident Involving a Semi
There are numerous federal regulations that govern many aspects of the trucking industry. Being able to effectively look at whether or not those regulations were followed can be critical to securing compensation after an accident with a tractor-trailer.
Another aspect of trucking accidents that can be challenging is the fact that the responsibility for your accident may lie with the:
- Truck driver
- Truck owner
- Maintenance provider
