Are you looking for an Atlanta tractor trailer accident lawyer? After a serious trucking accident involving a big rig, semi-truck, or tractor trailer, a knowledgeable Atlanta truck accident attorney at The Graham Firm can get the justice you deserve - in the form of full and fair compensation for your injuries.

When you contact us, our experienced attorneys will listen to your story, answer your questions, and share our knowledge and resources with you. Your consultation is free, and we are only paid if we recover money for you.

Injured In An Accident With A Tractor Trailer?

Being involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle can be overwhelming. If you are wondering what your legal rights are, you are not alone. Fortunately, you do not need to navigate this unfamiliar legal territory by yourself. The skilled legal staff and experienced Atlanta accident lawyers at The Graham Firm are ready to help. When you hire our personal injury attorneys, you can count on us to:

  • Thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident and review all available evidence
  • Determine if the truck driver or operator involved in your truck crash has a history of violations
  • Consult with experienced trucking industry experts during the claims process
  • Negotiate a fair settlement and if necessary, take your case to trial.

After you seek medical care for your injuries, do not delay reaching out to our injury attorneys. There is never any fee to speak with a lawyer. The dedicated truck accident lawyers at The Graham Firm are standing by to take your call 24/7/365.

Do You Need A Truck Accident Lawyer?

If you have been seriously injured, or if you have lost a loved one in an accident that was caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, you need a lawyer. It is possible to recover a settlement without an attorney, but you will likely recover far less than you could with a lawyer. At The Graham Firm, we are not afraid to take on challenging truck accident cases, including:

  • Catastrophic and permanently disabling injuries
  • Fatalities and wrongful death claims
  • Multiple vehicle liability
  • Claims involving pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcycles
  • Claims involving improper or negligent loading
  • Claims requiring complex accident reconstruction
  • Indemnification or additional insured issues
  • Claims involving truck drivers operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Georgia traffic code violations
  • OSHA trucking industry issues

We are a team of litigators with a database of experts and investigators ready to assist.

What To Look For When Choosing A Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accident victims should look for a lawyer who has successfully handled trucking accident claims and who understands Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, especially regulations pertaining to:

  • Truck driver qualifications
  • Truck driver drug and alcohol testing
  • Truck maintenance and repairs
  • Driver hours of service and required rest

The big trucking companies, such as UPS, FedEx, JB Hunt, Schneider, Roadway Express, all have legal counsel and investigators on call to look out for their legal interests as soon as a crash occurs. A delay in reaching out to a lawyer, or contacting an inexperienced lawyer, will give the trucking company an advantage. Having a lawyer who understands trucking regulations is important because regulations apply to the trucking companies.

Trucking Accident Frequently Asked Questions

What makes an accident with a tractor trailer different from a regular automobile accident?

Trucking accident claims have unique and complex legal issues. A truck accident case will often involve much more serious injuries than a claim involving just passenger vehicles. Injuries such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries may result in permanent disability. Because trucking companies are required to carry much higher amounts of insurance than drivers of passenger vehicles, much more money may be available than a car accident insurance claim. This also means insurance companies are willing to vigorously defend claims - because so much money is at stake. It is common for multiple parties to be involved in a claim, such as a trucking company, truck driver, manufacturer of the truck, mechanics, and other third parties.

How much does it cost to hire an experienced tractor trailer accident attorney?

Many people are hesitant to contact a lawyer because of the cost. Fortunately, there is no need to hesitate. The "contingency fee" arrangement of personal injury claims allows anyone to hire a lawyer with nothing out of pocket. There are no upfront fees, expenses, or costs to hire a personal injury lawyer. Your lawyer is simply paid a percentage of the eventual verdict or settlement. At The Graham Firm, in the unlikely event we agree to represent you but do not recover money, you will owe nothing. This means we take on any risks associated with losing a case, and there is no risk for our clients.

Should I speak to the truck driver's insurance company?

You should not speak to the truck driver's insurance company. A claims adjustor may reach out to you under the guise of caring about how you're doing or wanting to check on you. However, you should avoid speaking with them. Any information shared, no matter how harmless it seems, may be used against you, later on, to attempt to lower the value

Why should I get a truck accident attorney involved quickly after an accident?

Hiring an experienced truck accident attorney quickly gives you the best chance to preserve evidence important to your claim. In the hours and days following a truck crash, the vehicle may be towed hundreds of miles away, repaired, and put back in service.

What To Do Immediately Following An Accident With A Large Truck

 

What To Do Immediately Following An Accident With A Large Truck

After a large truck accident, time is of the essence. The trucking company will begin its own post-accident checklist before the truck driver gets out of the vehicle. On your end, there are a number of things you should do immediately:

  • Report the accident to law enforcement
  • Take photos and videos of the accident scene
  • Obtain contact information for parties involved and witnesses
  • Seek medical attention and complete recommended follow-up medical care with your primary care physician or specialists
  • Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer about your potential case
  • Notify your own insurance company about the accident, per the terms of your insurance policy.

Once you secure legal representation, your lawyer will ensure your rights are protected, and everything is done to preserve evidence, as well as the value of your truck accident claim. We have recovered more than $30 million for our personal injury clients in Georgia (see our case results).
