Police Investigating Truck Accident

Police officers in Georgia work hard to keep the roadways safe for residents and visitors alike. It is not unusual for large trucks to be mixed in with traffic, especially on highways. High speeds, inclement conditions, or driver errors can contribute to a serious truck accident. The sheer size of these vehicles can result in increased risk for injury or death in the event of a crash. Law enforcement has launched an investigation into a recent truck accident, and for officers, this one hit close to home. The victim was an officer from Smyrna, Georgia's police department. For reasons that are still unknown, a semi-truck flipped over and landed squarely on the officer's patrol car. The driver's side of the car was crushed. The officer was taken to a local hospital for immediate treatment of crash-related injuries. The investigation is ongoing, and it is not clear if police have any…

Car vs. Truck Accident Claims 4 Lives In Georgia

In any wreck that involves a car and a big rig, the occupants of the passenger vehicle are at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries and possibly even lose their lives. Such was also the outcome of a truck accident in Georgia that claimed the lives of four people in Decatur. The sheer size and weight of a tractor-trailer, semi-truck, or an 18-wheeler, compared to the size and weight of a passenger vehicle explain most outcomes of such collisions. An accident reconstruction team launched an investigation to determine the cause and circumstances of the crash. According to a preliminary accident report, the accident occurred in a traffic light-controlled intersection shortly before 2:45 a.m. on a recent Monday. Authorities say the car had six occupants, and five were rushed to a hospital. Reportedly, two women and one man, ages 19, 20, and 23, died soon after the accident due to head trauma…

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…
