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…

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.

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.

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…

Truck Accident in Georgia Kills 3

Three people died following a tragic accident involving a diesel truck, according to local sources. The Peach County Emergency Management Agency in Fort Valley confirmed the truck accident that killed both the truck driver and two people in a passenger vehicle. The precise cause of the Georgia accident is still under investigation. Limited information is available from this report, but it has been confirmed that the accident happened on the evening of March 30. Apparently, a tractor-trailer driven by a 55-year-old woman was headed eastbound on the 49 Bypass when the accident occurred. For reasons that are still unknown, the truck collided with a southbound vehicle carrying two female students, both 19 years old, who attended the nearby Fort Valley State University. The force of the impact caused the fuel tank on the tractor-trailer to rupture. This, in turn, caused both vehicles to catch fire, trapping all three people in…

Truck Accident Causes One Death and Multiple Injuries

It can sometimes be unnerving for Georgia drivers to navigate the roadways with large commercial trucks. Often, drivers will move over to the next lane when they see one pulled over to the side of the road in order to prevent a truck accident. Unfortunately, drivers are not always able to move over, or they are otherwise distracted, and accidents still occur. Such an accident occurred on Interstate 75 when a rental moving truck crashed into a larger truck that was pulled over in the emergency lane. The driver of the truck, which was hauling combustible material, had pulled over into the right emergency lane to fix a flat tire. The rental truck was driving southbound and veered into the emergency lane, clipping the driver's side of the stopped vehicle. After colliding with the truck, the rental truck then crashed into a passenger van, which flipped and landed upside down on the road's left shoulder. Authorities…

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.

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.
