Experienced Atlanta Commercial Trucking Accident Lawyers
In these trucking cases, EXPERIENCE MATTERS! Our legal team and experts understand the complex issues involved in trucking cases and have recovered millions for our injured clients.
A trucking case is not the same as a car wreck case. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has many rules and regulations that apply to trucking companies, as do many states. You need experienced lawyers who know the DOT rules and regulations and who know how to find violations in trucking companies’ and drivers’ files, logs, and data.
Trucking companies are also required to carry large insurance policies. In Georgia, we can even name these insurance companies as a defendant in the lawsuit.
While big truck wreck accidents are not as common, they are deadly. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association documents nationwide the fatalities and frequency of these wrecks. These statics are alarming, and our injury lawyers in Athens know how to help.
