Trucks have a major role in transportation in Georgia. Atlanta area residents know that our interstates are full of fast-moving tractor-trailers that could be delivering goods in our state or in interstate commerce. But given their size and the difficulty driving them on congested roads, trucks can make improper maneuvers and cause an accident very quickly.
A significant number of truck accidents occur when drivers make improper maneuvers on the road. These can include driving too closely requiring a quick adjustment when there is a need to stop quickly, making an abrupt lane change, failure to stay within the lane of travel or a failure to stop at a stop sign or traffic light. Sometimes a driver’s fatigue can be a contributing factor in these accidents.
Atlanta area truck accident lawyer Charles Scholle, along with his team of lawyers and legal professionals, represent clients who have been injured or harmed by the improper maneuvers of trucks. In a recent study experts noted that over 10 percent of traffic fatalities in the United States involve a large truck, but that trucks only account for seven percent of miles traveled on our roads. (source: Kansas University report.) Truck crashes tend to be more severe than other vehicle collisions and the reasons for that include their weight and their size. But what can make these crashes far worse is the improper driving of those behind the wheel of these heavy, massive vehicles.

His law firm is known for their communicative, caring approach to these cases.
In a truck accident, it is vital to determine all possible causes and often to retain accident reconstruction experts to examine the vehicles involved and to determine the cause of the collision. Applicable federal laws and regulations must be reviewed and all avenues followed that could lead to things like driver history or past erratic driving.
It is also important to review the documentation that might lead to liability on the part of the trucking company, which could be liable for hiring a poor driver with a bad driving record or a history of safety violations. Maybe the driver has even been responsible for making improper maneuvers in the past. This is critical information that only an experienced and dedicated lawyer like Charles Scholle can discover.
