Why Hire an Attorney After a Truck Accident?
Truck drivers are expected to use the utmost caution while operating their big rigs. They have very high standards for driving and must be well trained and up to date on Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. So why should you be concerned about Hiring an Attorney after a Truck Accident? First, here are some examples of common truck accident injuries.
Georgia has established laws regarding semi-trucks to prevent dangerous accidents. These laws restrict the number of hours truckers are allowed to drive per day and require them to complete driving logs to document the hours they spend driving, and those they spend resting.
Driving logs are often difficult for truck accident victims to decipher independently, but correctly interpreting this valuable evidence is crucial to winning your case.
For example, driving logs can solidify your claims that a truck driver operated their 40-ton tractor trailer recklessly or illegally.
Crashes involving semi-trucks are taken more seriously due to the complexity of the cases and the injured parties involved.
Winning a lawsuit most commonly requires previous experience and a comprehensive understanding of all the federal commercial vehicle regulations and those specific to the state of Georgia.
Throughout the course of building your case, The Brown Firm will examine:
- Police Reports
- Driver credentials
- Witness statements
- The scene of the accident
- If traffic laws were obeyed and the necessary precaution was taken
