Atlanta Truck Accident Attorney Near Me

Commercial truck accidents are far more likely to result in catastrophic injuries than are other motor vehicle crashes. According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), more than 120,000 people are injured and 4,000 people are killed in large truck accidents in the United States each year.

Following a large truck accident, injured victims need strong legal representation. At MG Law, our Atlanta truck accident attorneys are committed to pursuing justice and maximizing financial compensation for injured victims. We know how to hold trucking companies and their insurers accountable under the law. If you or your family member was injured in an 18-wheeler accident in North Georgia, please contact our Atlanta law office for free legal guidance.

The Georgia Statute of Limitations

Under Georgia law (Ga. Code Ann. Sec. 9-3-33), the statute of limitations for a truck accident lawsuit is typically two years from the date that the “action accrues”. In other words, your claim must be filed within two years of the date of the crash. If the statute of limitations runs out, your case may not be heard at all. Take action by calling a lawyer as soon as possible after a major accident.

The Georgia Statute of Limitations

Large trucking companies are required to follow a number of different state and federal safety regulations. When companies violate these rules, it puts the health and safety of everyone else on the road at considerable risk. In Georgia, truck accident injury claims are based on negligence. Plaintiffs must prove that the trucking company, or one of its representatives, such as the driver, acted in a careless or reckless manner that contributed to causing the accident. Some of the most common examples of negligence in commercial truck accident cases include:

  • Truck drivers speeding on tight schedules;
  • Truck driver fatigue;
  • Distracted driving
  • Lack of proper driver training;
  • Improperly loaded trailers;
  • Tire blowouts;
  • Brake problems; and
  • Failure to conduct adequate truck maintenance.

Truck accident claims are complex legal cases. In order to prevail in a lawsuit, plaintiffs must present strong and persuasive evidence that proves liability. Our Atlanta, GA commercial truck accident attorneys have the skills and experience needed to help you build a successful personal injury claim. We will gather all relevant evidence so you can hold the defendant legally liable for your accident.

Compensation Available to Injured Victims

In Georgia, truck accident victims have a right to seek financial relief for monetary damages and intangible losses. Sadly, large trucking corporations and their insurance companies are aggressive in handling claims. If you were hurt in a truck accident, they will try to settle your claim for as little as possible — far less than you need to pay your bills and support your family. Effective legal representation can make all the difference. At MG Law, our skilled Atlanta tractor trailer accident lawyers know how to help injured victims recover a maximum settlement offer or injury verdict. We can help you seek money damages for:

  • Emergency medical treatment;
  • Other hospital bills and medical expenses;
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation;
  • Lost current and future wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Long-term disability; and
  • Wrongful death damages.
