Georgia's Road Dangers: What's Really Causing Truck Accidents?

The trucking industry is federally regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), part of the Department of Transportation (DOT).  The main objective of FMCSA entails “reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.” Why is this important? When accidents occur, fault and liability are often determined by looking at the failure to follow rules. In the case of the trucking industry, federal regulations - not state laws - govern everything from truck driver duty and rest requirements, to drug testing, and vehicle maintenance and inspections.

Common causes of trucking accidents in Georgia include driver fatigue, distracted driving, vehicle mechanical failure, and improper loading.

Because commercial trucks weigh significantly more than passenger vehicles (cars, pickup trucks, and SUVs) the impact energy of any collision involving a commercial truck is much higher. Resulting injuries are often much more severe than in a car accident, and many collisions tragically result in loss of life. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2021, there were 244 non-truck occupants (either people in other vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists) that were killed in accidents involving large trucks in Georgia. Across the nation in 2021, 9.3 percent of all vehicles involved in fatal traffic crashes were large trucks.

Our Augusta personal injury lawyers specialize in truck accident litigation. We know why accidents occur, how accidents impact our clients, and how to hold negligent parties accountable. Although our attorneys are experts themselves, we frequently resource top investigators and reconstructionists to assist us in any aspect of a case, including FMCSA regulations. When it comes to negotiating settlements with a trucking company or insurance company, we fight for every dollar you are entitled to.

Although you have many choices in accident injury attorneys to hire, not all Georgia personal injury attorneys can get the same results. Following an accident, you have one opportunity to recover the fair compensation you deserve. If you’re ready to speak with a top-rated Augusta truck accident attorney about your legal rights and options, contact us today at (678) 603 - 1119 and let our experienced truck and car accident lawyer evaluate your case free of charge.

Most commercial truck accidents involve some element of human error, whether it is inattention, distracted driving, fatigue, or driving under the influence. In some commercial truck accident cases, identifying liability is obvious and simple. However, in many cases, a truck accident, motorcycle accident, or pedestrian accident victim may have questions as to how a crash occurred and who is liable. In some cases, several parties may be liable.

At The Graham Firm, we understand there is no “one size fits all” approach to a truck accident or car accident case. Because we have handled so many truck accident cases, our lawyers know what questions to ask, and when to dig deeper. We always look at the specifics of a truck accident and tailor an injury claim based on the unique aspects of the incident, and our client's needs. Hurt after a crash with a big truck?

Important Steps for Your Well-being Following A Crash With A Big Truck

Trucking accidents often result in major injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. If you suffer any injury in a trucking accident, or if a loved one is killed, there are three things you should do promptly:

  1. Preserve evidence (if you can): Take photos and videos of the truck accident scene. Photos and videos are an important element of your accident claim.
  2. Seek medical attention: Your medical record is an important part of your case and links the accident to your injuries. Do not delay in seeking medical treatment.
  3. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in Georgia: A knowledgeable Atlanta truck accident lawyer can guide you through every step of the post-accident process and ensure your rights are protected. They can also communicate on your behalf with the trucking company and insurance companies involved so that you can focus on your healing and recovery.

Do not accept a settlement offer for a personal injury or wrongful death accident claim without speaking with a lawyer. You may be entitled to far more than is initially offered. If you or a family member have been injured in a crash with a commercial truck, contact us as soon as possible at (678) 603 - 1119 to start protecting your rights.
