Commercial Vehicle Accident Liability In Atlanta
Georgia is a fault-based vehicle accident state. To hold a trucking company, delivery company, transportation company, or commercial driver legally liable for a crash, an injured victim must prove negligence. Negligence is the failure to exercise due care within the context of a specific situation. It comes in a wide array of different forms—from the unsafe actions of a single commercial vehicle driver to the dangerous practices of a large company.
Notably, many commercial vehicles are classified as common carriers in Georgia. Under Georgia law (Georgia Code § 46-9-1), common carriers are held to a heightened standard of care. In other words, many companies have a greater level of responsibility to reduce the risk of accidents. Every commercial vehicle accident requires an immediate investigation. You can be sure that the corporation and its insurers will waste no time in building their defense.
