If your automobile accident involved a commercial vehicle, truck or 18-wheeler / tractor-trailer on a Georgia road or interstate, you may be entitled to personal injury damages. An experienced Cumming personal injury attorney is an invaluable ally in the pursuit of justice and fair compensation for your trucking accident injury.
At The Manton Law Firm, LLC, we are dedicated to helping clients recover the compensation they deserve after a serious truck accident. With millions of dollar recovered for injury clients in the past, we understand how to take on insurance companies and other entities that deny our clients fair monetary damages.
Commercial vehicle, trucking, and tractor-trailer accident claims and lawsuits involve additional aspects of investigation beyond the typical factors that are often the focus of an auto accident case. Federal regulations that govern the operation of big rigs on our streets and highways must be examined in light of the circumstances of the trucking collision. For example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration maintains and enforces Hours of Service regulations to keep tired truck drivers off the road, and violation of these regulations may be used as evidence in a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
Truck accidents also involve a complex tangle of relationships between commercial shipping companies, vehicle owners, drivers and their various insurance carriers—all of whom are looking to avoid responsibility in a crash. Unfortunately, victims and their families tend to get lost in the blame game. The Manton Law Firm, LLC is committed to helping ensure our clients have a voice, and we work to hold those responsible for a truck accident accountable for what they have done.
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Georgia, our legal team is here to help. We do a thorough investigation of all areas that may prove the truck driver's responsibility, such as:
Our investigation sometimes uncovers that the driver had a history of poor driving and / or wrecks and that the company should not have hired or retained this driver in light of the poor driving record. Another important factor to investigate is whether the vehicle's shipping load was properly secured and within the acceptable weight limits. If it is not, then the business responsible for loading the freight may be responsible for the accident as well.
Aggressive handling of your insurance claim and other aspects involving the semi, tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, or commercial utility vehicle such as a delivery truck, may lead to sources of compensation. When you have been severely injured or lost a loved one, you deserve compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and any emotional distress you have been forced to endure.
