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 contact a 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.
