Fatal Truck Accidents in Georgia

Truck accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on Georgia roads; however, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads. These vehicles weigh as much as 80,000 pounds or more, which means that they are capable of causing extensive harm. In 2019, it was reported that approximately 204 people were killed in fatal truck accidents and many others were injured in Georgia. If you have lost someone close to you in a truck crash, you should speak with an attorney that you can rely on.
