Holding Truck Drivers Accountable For Negligent Actions

Many truck drivers are compensated based on miles. Freight companies often put pressure on drivers to make unrealistic deadlines. As a result, some drivers speed or work with few rest breaks in order to meet their quotas. Our law firm has extensive experience handling claims involving trucking driver liability. We understand the rules and regulations drivers are required to follow. If a truck driver ignored industry-wide regulations, the results can be catastrophic and sometimes fatal. Our Georgia truck accident attorneys conduct thorough investigations to understand the cause of your accident, including concerns of truck driver negligence, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failing to properly load an 18-wheeler
  • Failing to follow maintenance requirements

Our investigation may reveal that the truck driver was speeding because of pressure from the freight company to maintain an unrealistic schedule. We may even find that part of the liability lies with the truck company for pressuring drivers or failing to properly train their drivers. We review every angle possible to understand the cause of semi truck accidents. If more than one party is liable, we will help you recover maximum compensation from all at-fault parties.
