Truck Accident Lawyer in Atlanta
Truck accident injuries happen every day in Georgia— we’re here for you
Truck accidents in Atlanta and surrounding communities account for some of the most serious accidents we deal with at Gary Martin Hays & Associates. Trucks accidents can happen anywhere, anytime throughout Georgia. You may be driving along Interstate 75 or the Ralph David Abernathy Freeway when you’re sideswiped by a fatigued trucker. A distracted trucker may rear-end your vehicle at a DeKalb Avenue intersection. No matter how your accident occurred, you may be facing a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial issues as a result.
Accidents involving trucks are much different than car accidents. What makes them so different is most truck drivers work for a trucking company. These companies can be out of town or even from a different state. Even though these companies are strictly regulated by the federal government, simply trying to contact the company can be difficult. Make sure your settlement covers the true cost of your accident. That’s why we’re here: to fight diligently to protect the rights of truck accident victims, no matter the cause of their accident.

What causes truck accidents in Georgia?
In some cases, a fatal truck crash may occur as a result of truck driver negligence, such as when a drunk or fatigued truck driver veers into oncoming traffic. Whatever caused your accident, if you or someone you know was a victim of a truck accident, turn to Gary Martin Hays & Associates. We can help offset the pressure from the trucking company’s insurer, who will often send an investigator to the scene within a few hours of even sooner. We can help ensure that evidence is preserved and witnesses identified for input.
A truck accident caused by truck brake failure or an over-weighted truck can be just as severe and devastating as one caused by truck driver negligence like driver fatigue or drunk driving. However, the commercial trucking liability can change significantly, depending on the contributing factors. Parties that may share liability for a trucking accident include the trucking company, the truck driver, and any manufacturers and distributors of defective parts.
