Semi-Truck Accidents

The Personal Injury Advocates understand that Injuries caused by Semi-Trucks can be life-changing.

A semi-truck is inherently unstable based on the high center of gravity of its design. An over-weighted truck only makes this situation worse. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Georgia Department of Motor Vehicle Safety closely regulate the commercial trucking industry, but accidents due to truck driver negligence and trucking equipment maintenance still occur.

The following are a few contributing factors in semi-truck accidents:

  • Violations of restrictions on hours of driving, resulting in driver fatigue
  • Overweight semi-trucks and unbalanced loads
  • Semi-truck equipment maintenance

 

A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. A typical passenger vehicle weighs about 3,000 pounds. Because of the significant forces involved, fatal truck accidents are not uncommon. If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi-truck accident, we will fight for you.

Every semi-truck accident victim has the right to see that the law is applied fairly to all, not just to trucking and insurance companies. We help clients get the aggressive legal representation they deserve for their personal injuries. Call us today at 678-855-7205.
