Georgia Truck Accident Lawyer

When driving in Georgia, you have to share the road with big trucks. Even if you’re simply in the passing lane, this may be nerve-wracking. When you’ve been struck by a truck, you want to know that your case is in good hands. Accidents involving trucks may be considerably more severe and difficult than car crashes.

Truck accidents are unfortunately common, resulting in hundreds of injuries and deaths each year across the country.  Marc Brown Law Firm works for fair compensation for truck accident victims.

Georgia Trucking Laws

Victims of traffic accidents in Georgia are entitled to compensation for injuries caused by careless drivers under Georgia law.

Georgia’s basic traffic regulations must be followed by all drivers. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations apply to both commercial truck drivers and the firms that employ them. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations limit how many hours truckers can travel in a single day. They also make it illegal for drivers to operate a commercial truck if they are too sick or tired to do so safely. Many drivers, in any case, exceed the number of hours they’re supposed to be on the road.

A valid commercial driver’s license is required for commercial truck drivers. They may require certification for the truck they are driving. They must demonstrate that they are medically fit to operate a truck. Commercial drivers are required by federal law to have liability insurance with minimum amounts ranging from $750,000 to $5,000,000, depending on the type of driving they do.

After A Truck Accident, What Should You Do?

Stop your car and, if feasible, move it off the road to a safe location. If anyone involved in the collision requires immediate medical attention, dial 911. If no one needs immediate assistance, contact the local police department to have an officer dispatched to the location. Fill out an official accident report with the officer and make sure you save a copy.

It is also critical that you photograph the accident site as many times as possible. This enables you to completely depict what occurred. It’s also crucial that you don’t depart without giving the truck driver your insurance information.

Takedown the names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Get medical attention as soon as possible following the accident. Last but not least, contact the Marc Brown Law Firm in Georgia to hire a Georgia truck accident lawyer.

In the event of a trucking accident in Atlanta, Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation.

After suffering catastrophic injuries or losing a loved one in a trucking accident, it’s normal for a trucking accident victim to feel overwhelmed and terrified. It just takes a fraction of a second for a person’s life to be forever altered. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, you do not have to deal with the courts and settlements on your own. Our Georgia truck accident lawyers understand how traumatic being involved in a truck accident can be.

Economic And Non-Economic Damages

When one individual or corporation is to blame for an accident, however, the wounded plaintiffs have the right to seek financial compensation for a variety of economic and non-economic losses, including:

  • Medical bills, such as fees for mobility assistance, prescription drugs, surgery, and medical equipment
  • Burial expenses if another person has died in the accident.
  • Expenses for rehabilitation and therapy, such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, and other types of treatments
  • Compensation for loss of consortium, pain, and suffering, support, guidance, and loss of comfort
