Truck Accident Attorney in Atlanta
Fight for Your Compensation with Strong Legal Representation
Were you the victim of a truck accident? If so, it is important that you
personal injury attorney in Atlanta as soon as possible. Truck accident claims can be
more complicated to navigate than normal car accident claims because the
question of who is liable can be difficult to pinpoint.
At Ryan A. Johnson, P.C., we believe that you have the right to compensation
for injuries caused by negligent truck drivers. Big rigs are heavy, massive
vehicles that can cause catastrophic damages if they are not operated
with complete safety and caution. It is for this reason that the trucking
industry is highly regulated by state and federal law.
Who is liable for your injuries?
Truck drivers are often embarking on long routes, driving for hours straight
through the night and into the early hours of the morning. This means
that they are much more likely to experience extreme measures of tiredness
and fatigue, thus altering their ability to devote their full attention
to the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration imposes strict
regulations for the amount of consecutive hours that a driver is allowed
to operate and the period of rest required between shifts. Failure to
adhere to these standards can render the driver liable for all damages.
Negligent actions of drivers that can cause truck accidents include:
- Speeding to make deadlines
- Dangerous maneuvers
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Drugs and alcohol
However, the driver of the truck may not always be the sole party found
responsible for a truck accident. The owner of the trucking company could
be found at fault, especially if the truck driver was inadequately trained,
provided unreasonable deadlines, or forced to work unreasonable hours.
Furthermore, the manufacturer of the truck, tires, or other parts could
also be held responsible if its malfunction is what led to the collision.
