Compassionate Representation For Truck Accident Victims
Commercial vehicles move upward of 70 percent of all freight in the country. When these many large vehicles are traveling on Georgia’s highways, the risk of an accident increases. Due to their massive size and the high speeds at which they travel, a semitruck crash can lead to catastrophic consequences for individuals in an automobile.
At the Williams Litigation Group, we approach major truck accidents with compassion and a deep commitment to getting the compensation our clients deserve. We conduct a thorough analysis of each case to inform our clients of their rights and their legal options. By providing clear expectations and knowledgeable advice, we help our clients make informed decisions that reflect their best interests.
Semitruck Accident Claims Are Complex
Tractor-trailer crash cases are different from other motor vehicle accident lawsuits. These are complicated cases that require a lawyer to have significant experience and skill to obtain a favorable outcome.
The following are just some of the elements that make these types of personal injury cases so challenging to successfully resolve:
- Multiple parties: When two cars collide, the chances are that both drivers have insurance. In the most complex scenarios, the case will involve a plaintiff, a defendant and the defendant’s insurance company. A tractor-trailer case brings in additional parties, such as the truck driver, the carrier and a commercial insurer. In a highway pileup situation, a single case can include dozens of insurance companies and injured motorists.
- Federal law: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates commercial carriers, owners and operators. Truck companies break these laws when they pressure their drivers to spend too many hours on the road. Operators can also violate regulations by driving under the influence of a banned substance, texting while driving, forging logbooks or exceeding the speed limit. When these regulations are violated, the trucking company and/or the truck driver could be liable for injuries that a driver sustained from the crash.
