Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been involved in a car accident, your insurance policy may provide you with certain rights and coverage that will help to cover the costs and expenses of a wreck.
Truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to exercise the highest level of caution and adherence to safety standards to protect other drivers on the roads. When they fail to follow the rules, the results can be devastating for other drivers on the road. Trucking accidents often cause life-altering injuries to others involved — even death.
Atlanta Trucking Accident Lawyers — Representation You Need On Your Side After A Trucking Injury
At The Law Office of Gilbert M. Taylor, LLC, we are committed to fighting on behalf of victims and their families following accidents involving tractor-trailers and semis. These can be difficult cases to handle as the trucking company is well-practiced at avoiding liability and covering up evidence. Our lawyers are experienced, however, in building a solid case on behalf of our clients and recovering maximum damages for the pain that has been caused.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a semi truck accident, allow our attorneys to represent you and deliver results. For a free initial consultation, please call our Gwinnett County offices at 844-288-6222. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, never accepting a fee unless you win.
Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:
Driver fatigue after driving more hours than legally allowed
Unbalanced loads or unsecured loads that shift during travel
Improper maintenance or repair to the rigs
Failure of the trucking company to screen drivers for past safety violations
Failure of the trucking company to adequately train drivers
Reckless driving by truckers
Our attorneys will move quickly to investigate the accident and recover important evidence before the trucking company has a chance to lose it. We work with forensic experts to re-create the accident and demonstrate what should have been done to prevent it. Our lawyers have successfully held trucking companies accountable for these kinds of actions and are prepared to act quickly and decisively on your behalf.
If you have lost a loved one or have been seriously injured in a trucking accident, call our Atlanta, Georgia, law offices today at 678-942-6945.
