Trucking Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
Due to the size of their vehicles, truck drivers are held to a higher standard than most other drivers. They go through a required training that is supposed to teach the proper ways to handle the truck. Unfortunately, not all drivers take proper precautions. If you or a loved one has been involved in a trucking accident, talking to the attorneys at Healan Law Offices, P.C., is of the utmost importance.
An Accident Can Happen Within Seconds
Trucks driving through Georgia can weigh at least 25 times as much as a typical car. The injuries can be serious, if not fatal. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and we can help you build the strongest possible case. Some common causes of accidents include:
- Inadequate training, including safety concerns and defensive driving
- Drivers moving faster because their company will pay them more
- Unrealistic schedules, forcing drivers to be sleep-deprived
- Jackknifing due to slippery roads or an abrupt turn
- Turning accidents, where the driver doesn’t allow enough room
No matter how your accident was caused, we will analyze all parts of your case. You can expect honesty every step of the way, as well as help making important decisions. For example, one thing we must do is identify all possible defendants, which may include more than the driver. It includes going after the company, their insurance company and their contractors. We will determine who is potentially at fault and do our best to get you results.
