Truck Accidents in Georgia
No one ever expects that they will become involved in a truck crash until it happens to them. Because trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, they are capable of causing extensive harm in the event of an accident. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., approximately 119,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to the fact that drivers are not always obeying the laws of the road. We expect that truck drivers will pay close attention to the roads around them, but this is not always the case. If you have been hurt in a truck collision, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
