The Complexity of Truck Accidents

Representing Atlanta, Savannah, Columbus, Decatur, Augusta & nearby areas of Georgia

It’s 3:00 am on an Atlanta highway. Blue and red police lights illuminate a scene of destruction- an overturned commercial truck lies near multiple cars, all wrecked and unsalvageable. Glass and other debris litter the scene. Stunned drivers try to give statements to the police officers, while others receive medical attention.

 

How do you make sense of this scene? How did it happen? Who’s responsible? And who will pay for all of the pain and physical damage?

What is Involved In These Cases

We often stress the importance of attorney experience in truck accident cases, but this cannot be overstated. These cases involve an abundance of factors that have to be navigated if you want to receive the justice and compensation and you deserve.

 

For just one example, consider liability. Liability in a truck accident is a notoriously tricky beast. Let’s say it can be established that the truck driver was at-fault in the accident. Is he the only liable party? Who else would it be- he’s at-fault, after all.

 

In reality, however, liability often rests hundreds of miles from the scene of the accident- for example, in the trucking company that set an unrealistic schedule, or the cargo-loading company that overloaded the truck and made it a dangerous vehicle.

 

And that’s just a common question that arises after fault has been proven. Actually discovering who is responsible is itself quite a difficult feat- it involves a thorough, professional, painstaking investigation into a truck accident that might have involved dozens of vehicles.

 

At Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, we’re not afraid of this complexity. We embrace it. We know how to conduct the professional investigation you deserve, and we possess a comprehensive understanding of all relevant laws and regulations.

 

Helping innocent victims like you is why we do what we do. We’re passionate about using our decades of experience to pursue justice and compensation in these highly complex, profoundly devastating cases.
