Fayetteville Truck Accident Lawyer

Heavy Semi Truck Traffic On The Interstate HighwayIn 2019, there were 180 fatal accidents involving semi trucks across Georgia, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Many other drivers were injured in these types of wrecks.

Truck accidents can lead to majorly debilitating injuries, and a possible loss of lives. These collisions can cause swelling and bleeding of the brain, bone fractures, pelvic and spinal injuries, internal bleeding, and more.

If you have been at the receiving end of a violent truck accident, chances are you have already been contacted by large insurance corporations for a settlement. Trucking companies and their insurance companies will try to create a case that pins the majority of the fault on you. They will get to the scene of the wreck and start their investigation – sometimes hiding or even destroying evidence in the process. 

For these reasons and more, it is crucial you speak to a qualified attorney as soon as possible after a truck accident. At Scholle Law, we understand the devastation of collisions with semi trucks and the complexities of filing a lawsuit to get the compensation you deserve.

Maximum Results for Truck Wreck Victims in Fayette County

Truck driver checking container door security. Truck inspection safety and maintenance.Trucking companies must adhere to safety regulations intended to prevent trucking accidents. The tires, lights, cargo, and other aspects must be followed for the safety of those sharing the road with trucks. In addition, truck drivers must follow strict guidelines and logs that keep track of the hours they have driven and rests they have taken. This helps avoid fatigued drivers who are more likely to be involved in or cause a truck crash.

When a driver has been driving for too many hours and has failed to take a break, the logs should reveal this. Truck drivers who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol are more likely to cause a fatal or serious truck crash, either colliding with another truck or smaller vehicle.

Our law firm understands that seriously hurt trucking accident victims would like to move on with their lives. This is why we take the time to fully explain the case and its legal issues to each client. We always keep clients updated on each new development.

In a serious accident between two passenger cars, both victims and their families are likely to be overwhelmed but unlikely to have much experience with the legal and medical issues they will face.

By contrast, accidents are a part of the trucking business, which means trucking companies and their insurance companies know exactly how the process works and how to limit their financial obligations. Trucking companies typically have engineers, investigators, lawyers, and accident reconstruction experts on the scene within 24 hours.

They secure evidence, take measurements, interview witnesses, and talk to the police officers, all in an attempt to gain the advantage in denying a victim’s claim or in minimizing any money they may have to pay out. 

In fact, it is not unusual for Georgia tractor-trailer accident victims to receive phone calls from trucking companies within a day of the accident, discussing financial offers or fault, often before the victims are remotely ready to think about those things.
