Trucking accidents are a serious problem in Georgia, often resulting in catastrophic injuries or death to the automobile driver or passengers involved in the collision. Trucks are inherently dangerous. Trucking accidents occur because of:
- Aggressive drivers
- Illegally driving excessive hours
- Failure to maintain the truck properly
- Driver fatigue
- Overloaded trucks
- Cell phone use
- Failure to install blind spot mirrors to avoid dangerous lane changes
According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, thousands of motorists are killed each year by large trucks — those weighing more than 10,000 pounds. Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and semi-trucks fall into this category.
Trucking accidents have an increased chance of causing severe injuries because in most cases, a truck cannot remain upright during an accident. Additionally, truck drivers have limited visibility and maneuverability. These factors greatly contribute to trucking accidents. Whether the driver is distracted, falls asleep at the wheel or just isn’t paying attention, accidents caused by these massive vehicles can kill or catastrophically injure motorists.
Truck drivers and the companies they work for have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Unsafe driving, over sized or unsecured cargo loads and various other factors put the public and the truck operators in danger.
The trucking company can be held financially responsible not only for chronic pain and discomfort caused in the accident, but for your medical costs, loss of wages, and any permanent injury or disability caused by the accident.
