Truck Company Liability

Truck Company LiabilityIn some truck accidents, trucking companies bear some or all responsibility for the cause of the accident. The company that owns the truck, the company that owns the trailer, the company that loaded the trailer, and sometimes all three could have performed negligently or wrongfully in some way to increase the likelihood of an accident on the road. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a trucking accident with a tractor-trailer or semi truck, it is critical to seek medical attention immediately, and it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

At The Sams Law Firm in Atlanta, we strongly encourage people involved in motor vehicle accidents of any sort to consult with us before speaking with or signing anything from insurance company representatives. Founding attorney Warren Sams has more than 20 years of experience representing accident victims in Georgia.

Insurers will always try to limit what they pay out to policyholders. It is vital for your recovery and for your future that you consult with an honest, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney before giving statements about the accident to anyone else.

Georgia Truck Accident Liability Attorney

We can begin a thorough independent investigation of the accident scene, documenting evidence, reconstructing the scene and obtaining witness testimonies. We collaborate with experts in the fields of accident reconstruction, medicine and economics to build your case and establish its full value. We examine driver logbooks, investigate driving history, examine driver backgrounds and assess several other factors that could have contributed to the accident circumstances such as:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Overloaded trucks or unsecured cargo
  • Improper maintenance

Trucking companies can be liable for overworking truck drivers, safety violations, improper hiring practices, inadequate driving and safety training, inadequate supervising, and other violations of state and federal regulations.
