Causes of Truck Accidents in Atlanta

If you or your loved one was in an 18-wheeler accident in Atlanta, Georgia, make sure you have an experienced lawyer in your corner. The right attorney will know how to identify the cause of the truck accident despite any efforts truck companies make to try and mitigate their exposure to risk.

Experience Needed To Go Up Against National Freights

At Kaplan & Seifter, our Atlanta trucking accident attorneys have 30 years of experience handling catastrophic and fatal accident claims. We know the regulations truck companies are expected to follow and the steps they take to protect themselves from liability.

Most truck companies are run by national freight carriers with the resources to try separating themselves from the cause of 18-wheeler accidents. The truck company involved in your accident will likely have an experienced lawyer in its corner and so should you. Contact us for the representation you need when dealing with national freights committed to protecting their bottom line.

Insurance Companies May Not Be In Your Corner But We Are

Shortly after tractor-trailer accidents, freight companies enlist insurance adjusters to try and protect their best interests. They may arrive at the scene of the accident appearing to help you. In fact, their focus is to try and reduce any concerns the truck company failed preventing the accident. Any evidence casting a negative light on the truck company or driver may disappear.

To try avoiding negative press, the insurer may offer you a settlement on the spot. Avoid accepting any offers without the help of an experienced Atlanta trucking accident lawyer. Before a settlement can be made, the cause and damages stemming from the accident must be determined.

Investigating The Causes Of Trucking Accidents In Atlanta

We know how trucking companies work and are prepared to help you overcome any roadblock to identify the cause of the accident. We can evaluate maintenance records, log books and fuel tickets when reviewing every angle possible. We can also consult accident scene reconstructionists to piece together the series of events just before the accident occurred. Our detailed investigative work helps us identify the cause of tractor-trailer accidents, such as:

  • Truck driver liability
  • Truck company liability
  • At-fault truck loader
  • Tire blowouts and other manufacturing errors
  • Distracted drivers
  • Drunk driving
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Poorly marked construction detours

The cause of trucking accidents can vary greatly. We will work relentlessly to understand who is responsible for the accident you or your loved one endured. If more than one party is at fault, we will aggressively pursue maximum compensation against all liable parties.
