SEMITRUCK ACCIDENT INJURIES IN GEORGIA REQUIRE LEGAL ASSISTANCE

On behalf of Law Office of Gregory Chancy posted in semitruck accident injuries on Friday, December 14, 2018.

The Georgia roadways are rife with large trucks making deliveries and performing other necessary tasks. There is no doubt there is great benefit to these vehicles. They provide jobs for drivers and businesses and individuals get their items in short order. However, that does not eliminate the risk that accompanies these vehicles. With that risk, there can be accidents. Those who have been impacted by such an accident must remember their right to consider a legal filing for compensation.

Since they travel such great distances to, from and through Georgia and are often operating on strict deadlines with the drivers potentially earning more when they get their cargo to its destination as quickly as possible, drivers might take liberties with the federal and state laws mandating required safety procedures. This can cause semitruck accident injuries and fatalities.

Some driver behaviors can include using drugs to remain awake or to get to sleep quickly during rest periods. It might involve drinking and driving. Drivers might go well beyond the posted speed limits, overload their vehicles or commit other illegal acts. They will frequently drive while distracted. The vehicle could have a mechanical problem or design flaw. There might simply be an accident due to weather and circumstances beyond their control. Regardless of how and why the accident happened, people who are in smaller vehicles or are pedestrians will face severe injuries and death as a result.

Injuries can result in a long hospital stay with the accompanying medical expenses for surgeries, treatment and rehabilitation. Lost wages can drain a person’s bank account and lead to them falling behind on paying bills. Their families could be deprived of the contribution of a loved one. When there is a fatal accident, there will be funeral expenses, emotional, financial and personal losses. When these accidents occur, having legal assistance to investigate the case from the perspective of the victim and the victim’s family is critical. Marietta, Georgia, semitruck accident injury lawyers can help with all aspects of the case.
