Why fatal truck accidents happen

Fatal accidents with an 18-wheeler, tractor trailer, or another type of large truck happen for many different reasons. The chances of a crash being fatal increase in a semi-truck accident or other type of big rig crash because trucks are so much larger and heavier than typical passenger vehicles.

A truck’s size and weight amplify bodily injuries; It’s one reason why truckers are held to a higher standard than noncommercial drivers. However, not all truckers follow the rules. Even when they do, poor vehicle maintenance or a defective part could lead to a deadly accident. Some of the most common causes of fatal truck accidents include:

  • Distracted truck drivers
  • Tired truck drivers falling asleep at the wheel
  • Speeding truck drivers
  • Impaired truck drivers (including drivers on drugs or alcohol)
  • Poorly maintained trucks
  • Truck mechanical problems
  • Inexperienced truck drivers
  • Missing or deteriorated underride guards

Whatever the cause of your fatal truck accident, no matter how straightforward or complicated it might seem, make sure you talk to us to find out how we can help your family.

We put your family's interests first

The key to a successful wrongful death claim after a fatal truck accident in Georgia is proving that the truck driver or trucking company was responsible for your loved one's death. That might sound simple. But gathering hard evidence can often be very complicated. Trucking companies sometimes don't cooperate. The truck driver might deny doing anything wrong. And insurance companies often raise objections throughout the claim's process.

Don't let them dictate what happens to your family. You have rights. Our Georgia fatal truck accident attorneys can fight for them. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation with our law firm. We can explain all the legal options available to you. Then, we work with you to achieve your goals. And if the trucking company or insurance company refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court. We're here for you when you need us most.
