Georgia Unsecured Or Improperly Loaded Truck Accidents

Even in the best circumstances, an accident with a big truck can have severe and debilitating consequences. Because big delivery trucks are large and can reach high speeds, the results of an accident involving a truck can be particularly serious. What makes an accident with a truck even more dangerous is the cargo they carry. Depending on who owns or operates the truck or who has hired the truck to transport cargo, the details about what they are hauling can vary dramatically. Depending on the type, size, and weight of these vehicles, a fully loaded big truck can weigh almost 100,000 pounds. If a passenger vehicle is involved in an accident with a truck that heavy, the results could be devastating or even fatal. When trucks are transporting cargo, the likelihood and effects of the accident increase if the vehicle is not loaded properly. This article will discuss the circumstances…

Size Difference the Primary Hazard in Car vs. Truck Accident

Occupants of passenger vehicles in Georgia will always be at an increased risk when they share the roadways with big rigs. The sheer size difference increases the risk of catastrophic injuries or fatalities in any truck accident. Road safety is the shared responsibility of operators of all modes of transport, including those on two-wheels like cyclists and motorcycle riders. Safety authorities say drivers of smaller vehicles should consider the unique challenges with which large truck operators must deal. The fact that big rigs could be up to 30 times the size of passenger vehicles makes it more challenging for a driver to maneuver large trucks and buses. Acceleration and braking are particularly dangerous because these large vehicles are slow to accelerate when going uphill and quick to gain speed when they go downhill. The taller the vehicle, the higher its center of gravity, which increases the risk of rolling over. For this…

The driver was killed in the crash, and the child was reportedly taken to Archbold Medical Center. Reports also say that the child was in critical condition. The crash occurred on Maddox Road and State Route 188. Authorities say that the driver of the semi-truck failed to yield upon exiting a private driveway. The truck crashed into the…

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.
