Alpharetta Trucking Accident Lawyer

Tired, Negligent & Distracted Truck Drivers

In the state of Georgia, statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration state that there were 144 fatal crashes in the state in 2010 involving large trucks. Big rig trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons, or 80,000 pounds.

With that much size and weight behind an 18-wheeler in a collision, no wonder so many fatalities result. Causes for these personal injuries vary, but the most common cases involve fatigue, negligence or distraction.

Causes of Georgia Truck Accidents

Truck drivers are constantly under a lot of stress, since they are often required to travel long distances in short periods of time in order to deliver their cargo within their deadline. A common result of such stress is fatigue, which lowers a driver's reflexes and reaction time in emergencies, or could cause them to fall asleep at the wheel, causing an accident.

Negligence is another cause of trucking accidents. If a truck is not properly maintained by the driver and/or by the trucking company, a malfunction could occur and cause the driver to lose control and crash. Also, as is common in any type of traffic accident, driver distraction could result in a wreck due to texting, talking on the phone, eating or adjusting the radio while driving.

Injuries can be catastrophic in these cases, such as broken bones, head injuries and spine injuries. They could even be ongoing or permanent and require ongoing compensation, as well. If you've suffered such an accident, you need an attorney with the skill, aggression and determination to face the big trucking companies, who will be reluctant to admit liability, let alone pay full compensation.
