Truck Accidents in Georgia
Though truck accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads in Georgia, they still wreak havoc on our roads every year. Large trucks weigh as much as 80,000 or more pounds in the event of an accident, which can lead to extensive and life-altering harm when an accident occurs. In one recent year in the U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to the reckless acts of others. Georgia is no stranger to these accidents, which tend to lead to catastrophic injuries. If you have been hurt in a truck accident and wonder where you can turn, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can rely on.
