Tractor Trailer Accidents Lawyer in Atlanta
Contact Our Auto Accident Lawyer for Skilled Litigation
As a major transportation artery, Interstate 85 is a common route for the
trucking industry. You may never give it a second thought. After all,
sharing the road with hundreds of tractor trailers is a part of everyday
life. However, these vehicles are at least 20 times the size of the average
passenger car. Whether you are driving a compact car, sedan, or SUV, a
collision with a semi or 18-wheeler can have catastrophic results.
At The Weinstein Firm, LLC, we recognize the life-altering ramifications
of an accident with one of these highway behemoths. In collisions with
tractor trailers, the occupants of the smaller vehicle are the ones most
often seriously injured or killed. If you or a loved one has been involved
in an accident with one of these massive entities, our skilled
Atlanta auto accident attorneys can deliver the zealous advocacy you deserve to achieve full and fair
compensation for your injuries.
Holding Tractor Trailer Drivers Accountable
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), driver
error is ten times more likely to be the cause of a tractor trailer crash
than any other factor. Nearly 88% of these collisions were caused by either
a direct or indirect action of the truck operator.
Common driver errors include:
- Driver fatigue
- Taking prescription or over-the-counter medication
- Driver inexperience
- Inattention or distraction
- Drug use
- Improper load distribution
- Failure to properly attach trailers
As operators of vehicles weighing at least 10,000 pounds or more, truck
drivers are mandated to take extra precautions when on the road. Regrettably,
tight deadlines and / or working for longer than the legal limit leads
drivers to drive in a careless or reckless manner resulting in a devastating accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an
accident caused by truck driver error, our firm can help! We have the resources you need to thoroughly investigate
the actions of the vehicle operator, including analyzing drivers'
logs, bills of lading, on-board computers, and GPS systems. Rest assured, our
