Truck Accidents in Georgia
Tractor-trailers are the largest vehicles that navigate our roads in all of Georgia. Because of this, accidents involving these vehicles tend to be some of the most severe. In one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents within the entire U.S. Truck accidents can very easily be prevented so that drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles are not harmed. However, these accidents continue to occur due to the outright recklessness of others every single year. Truck drivers spend a long period of time on our roads, which means that they are more likely to drive distracted or fall asleep at the wheel. If you have been hurt in a truck accident caused by another party, you should speak with a legal advocate that you can trust.
