Tractor Trailer Accidents

Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyers in Atlanta

Experienced Atlanta Injury Attorneys

There is more than just the size and weight of the vehicles involved that separates a tractor-trailer crash from a passenger-vehicle crash. When big rigs, or similarly sized commercial vehicles, are involved in an accident, the level of liability is significantly higher. This is because these vehicles are operated by professional drivers, who must obtain a special license, and are representing a commercial entity. Unfortunately, this does not necessarily make compensation any easier to obtain. In some instances, recovering damages after a commercial truck accident is even harder - which is why you need an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer by your side.

We Help Protect You Against Big-Time Insurance Companies

Establishing liability in the aftermath of a tractor-trailer accident is a difficult process. With so many potential defendants all trying to cover their backs, having an experienced advocate by your side makes a huge difference. In some instances, one entity owns the truck, another owns the trailer, a third employs the driver, and a fourth was in charge of loading. Depending on how the accident unfolded, some or all of them could be legally responsible.

  • Commercial, tractor-trailer accidents can be caused by:
  • Brake failure
  • Sudden load shifting
  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Tire blow-outs
  • Unsafe operating speeds
  • Defective auto parts
