How Georgia Truck Accident Claims Differ From Car Accident Claims

If you are involved in a truck accident in Georgia, you need to contact an experienced truck accident attorney. Cases involving truck collisions differ in important respects from typical passenger vehicle accidents. These accidents tend to cause more severe injuries, which can require longer-term care. Dozier Law's truck accident lawyers are trained to collect evidence unique to drivers with commercial driver's licenses. This evidence can be critical in your case. Truck Accidents Usually Involve More Severe Injuries A fully loaded commercial truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. That is 27 times the average weight of a passenger vehicle. At impact, a loaded truck will collide with the force of 20 passenger automobiles. The resulting injuries can be catastrophic. Common injuries from truck accidents include death, dismemberment, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain injuries, broken bones, soft tissue injuries, internal bleeding, and organ damage. Some of these injuries may not be…

Family Explains Struggle Following Truck Accident

Hard-working Georgia families do their best to get by, and sometimes an emergency situation can put an enormous burden on finances, schedules, and relationships within the family unit. One family recently shared their story about how a truck accident turned their lives upside-down. Now uncertain about the future and struggling to keep afloat, the family's plight illustrates how one accident can affect multiple lives. The ordeal began when a Georgia man, husband, and father of two, locked up the store where he was employed and began to walk home one evening in June 2019. Still unable to recall exactly what transpired next, the man relies on the word of Georgia State Patrol officers that tell him he was struck by a truck along a local road. His wife was notified and she rushed to the hospital, where she found her bruised and broken husband lying helpless. After months in the hospital and…

Who Can I Sue in a Truck Accident?

There are an overwhelming number of factors involved in a truck accident. In most cases, investigators will need to look at what each driver involved was doing leading up to the crash. This can determine any level of distraction, recklessness, negligence, or intoxication. These factors are common for almost all multivehicle accidents. However, when a truck is involved, investigators will now need to look at driver logs, whether the truck was properly maintained and whether it met all safety regulations set forth to maintain nonhazardous roadways for those commuting alongside these behemoths. If you were hurt or if you have lost a loved one due to an accident involving an 18-wheeler or another large commercial vehicle, you are likely struggling to function on an emotional level. Grief can be absolutely debilitating. Add to that the concerns of exploring all avenues of causation and pursuing compensation for that guilt, and you may…

Professional Help After A Georgia Truck Accident

Anyone who has driven down Interstate 75 knows how many tractor-trailers are on the roads in Georgia. Unfortunately, a large number of semi-trucks on the roads often means an equally large number of truck accidents. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a truck accident in the Macon area, you can turn to Dozier Law Firm, LLC, for help pursuing personal injury compensation. Pursuing compensation after a truck accident is different from pursuing compensation after a car accident. The main difference lies in the insurance company handling the claim. As most trucks belong to large trucking companies, their insurance companies are large and have access to teams of attorneys whose only jobs are to limit the amounts paid to claimants. In addition to having teams of lawyers, large insurance companies also have networks of resources they use to try to diminish liability. At our law firm, we have…

Injured In A Truck Accident? We Can Help

Car-truck accidents can be gruesome to behold. You may have seen pictures of the aftermath of such encounters: the economy car that looks like it has been put a trash compactor; the sedan that has its side stove in; the pickup that not only got rolled over but ended up with the big rig that hit it resting on top of it. The circumstances under which you might find yourself involved in an accident with a truck can vary. Still, regardless of how it happens, a definite possibility is that you will suffer significant injuries as a result. Injuries from a trucking accident can take time to heal. They can even lead to long-term disability or prevent you from returning to work at all. Aside from the prospect of lost income, don’t forget the medical bills that can wipe out your savings, outstrip your insurance coverage, and leave you facing…
