Truck Accidents in Georgia

Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads in Georgia, weighing in as much as 80,000 pounds. This means that, in the event of an accident, they are likely to cause catastrophic damages. Many parties in smaller vehicles are incredibly vulnerable to severe damages when these accidents occur. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to the reckless acts of others. If you have been hurt in a truck accident that was caused by another party, you may be feeling alone and confused.
