What to Do When You See an Unsafe Truck Driver in Georgia

Published on Sep 26, 2017 at 6:20 pm in Truck Accidents.

Commercial truck drivers in the state of Georgia are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations which dictate safe driving speeds, etc., as well as the conditions during which a trucker must stop and rest for the night or take a break from driving. Trucking agencies must also follow FMCSA safety standards when manufacturing or equipping new rigs. Both measures help ensure that truckers drive as safe as they possibly can.

Despite these regulations being in place, however, truck accidents happen on an all-too frequent level in our state. We’ve all driven next to a driver of an 18-wheeler who’s swerved slightly without warning and almost frightened us. What you may not know is that all drivers have a legal right to report commercial truck drivers who are driving unsafely or carrying cargo in an unsafe manner.

Who’s at Fault for a Georgia Trucking Accident?

Published on Aug 17, 2017 at 9:25 pm in Truck Accidents.

Trucks are large, dominating, dangerous forces on Georgia roadways.  Collisions involving semi trucks are more damaging and more deadly than collisions involving only cars.  This is because the massive size of a semi truck produces a powerful force that is too much for a passenger car to defend.

Many assume that the legal process for personal injuries resulting from trucking accidents is the same as personal injuries resulting from car accidents, but this is not the truth.  Trucking accidents differ from car accident cases in that more than one party may be held liable.  These cases can actually be quite complicated, and it is important to seek the help of an attorney who is experienced in handling truck accident cases in the state of Georgia.

4 Tips for Driving Safely Around Semi Trucks in Georgia

Published on Jun 19, 2017 at 12:00 pm in Truck Accidents.

Semi trucks, big rigs, 18-wheelers, and other large commercial trucks cause a considerable amount of devastation on Georgia’s highways. Around Atlanta, especially, we see a large number of dangerous truck crashes that result in fatalities. Atlanta’s highways are some of the most dangerous in the nation.

Since large trucks carry so much weight and sheer force behind them, a smaller passenger vehicle and its occupants almost always receive the brunt of the resulting devastation when an accident occurs. Big rigs are also large, noisy, and make wide turns. It’s unsurprisingly common for drivers to feel unsettled or uncomfortable when driving next to large trucks.
