Talk to an attorney at the Law Offices of Gary Martin Hays & Associates, P.C.

Our lawyers have been handling such complicated cases in the Atlanta area for decades. We're familiar with Atlanta's special laws which prohibit most heavy trucks from traveling inside the I-285 perimeter. And we know what facts matter when building a strong legal case.

That's why we want to meet with you. As your attorney, we can thoroughly review the details of your truck accident, then offer our advice on what we think you should do next. That way, you can make informed decisions about this important legal matter.

How did your truck accident happen?

Truck accidents happen for many different reasons. In Atlanta, many accidents involve delivery trucks and other smaller box trucks.

That's because larger commercial trucks are prohibited from driving within the I-285 corridor unless they are loading or unloading cargo in the city. But there are often smaller trucks on I-20, I-75, and I-85 inside the perimeter in downtown Atlanta.

Many commercial truck accidents in Atlanta, likely including yours, happen for the following reasons:

  • An inexperienced truck driver crashes into your vehicle.
  • A distracted truck driver causes an accident.
  • A texting truck driver causes a collision.
  • A truck driver loses control of an improperly maintained truck.
  • A truck driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs causes an accident.
  • A truck driver falls asleep at the wheel.
  • A speeding truck driver doesn't have enough time to avoid a collision.

Whatever the cause of your Atlanta truck accident, no matter how straightforward or complicated your case might seem, we're here to help you hold the truck driver and anyone else responsible for your crash accountable for their actions.

Why you should trust our law firm

If a truck driver clearly caused your crash, you might think you don't need a lawyer to handle your case. All you have to do is call the police, call your insurance company and they'll take care of everything, right?

Don't be so sure. In many cases, truck drivers deny doing anything wrong. They might even try to claim you did something to cause your accident. And the trucking companies they work for often say the same thing. So will their attorneys and their insurance companies.

But they aren't the only negligent parties you may have to deal with after a truck accident. Sometimes, you might need to take legal action against the company that loaded the truck that caused your crash. Or you might need to pursue compensation from the company that created the product or packaging materials.

Whatever the circumstances of your case, we're prepared to fight for the money you deserve after your accident. And if any of these companies or attorneys refuse to cooperate with us, we're prepared to take them to court.
