Why Georgia Truck Accidents Are More Dangerous than Other Motor Vehicle Accidents

Passenger vehicles typically weigh 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, but a fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh 80,000 pounds or more. They also have lengthy stopping distances, resulting in a higher speed upon impact. 

In 2021, the Georgia Department of Public Safety reported that 244 people died in large truck crashes. According to national statistics, as many as 72 percent of deaths in big truck accidents were occupants of the passenger vehicle.

Trucking Negligence Laws in Georgia

Georgia is an at-fault state, which means you can file a claim against the responsible party’s insurance policy when a careless truck driver injures you in an accident. Big truck companies in Georgia are required to carry at least $300,000 in liability insurance coverage, and interstate trucks that haul freight must carry $750,000. 

What if I Am Partly To Blame for the Accident?

You have the right to recover compensation in Georgia as long as your share of the fault is less than 50 percent, but your compensation is reduced proportionately. 

Don’t accept a finding of fault without speaking to an experienced Georgia semi truck accident attorney. We will work hard to gather evidence, such as dash cam footage from the truck showing the street and the truck driver, which can help with claims of comparative negligence in Georgia. Contact us immediately for a free case review. 

We Will Find All of the Culprits Responsible for Your Truck Accident and Hold Them Accountable

Truck drivers have some of the same bad habits as other drivers, including distracted driving, driving under the influence, drowsy driving, and speeding. 

According to a recent news report, drinking and driving violations among commercial drivers are more common in Georgia than in any other state. 

Driving a big rig requires extra skill. In some cases, drivers wreck because of inexperience or poor training. Some big truck accidents are caused by factors outside the driver, including defective tires, defective brakes, improperly loaded cargo, poorly maintained trucks, or faulty repairs. 

Who May Be Liable for My Georgia Truck Accident?

Multiple parties are responsible for the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles and may have caused or contributed to your truck accident, including the driver, a trucking company, a cargo loading company, a truck mechanic, a government entity, truck part manufacturers, and others.  

Our experienced Georgia semi truck accident lawyers often find the trucking company liable on the grounds that it owns the truck, employs the driver, or has engaged in negligence, such as the following: 

  • Negligent driver training 
  • Negligent hiring 
  • Unrealistic delivery schedules 
  • Poorly maintained trucks 
  • Poorly planned routes 

Unrealistic delivery schedules can cause drivers to feel pressure to speed or exceed daily time limits for driving. This can result in drowsy driving. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration prohibits truck drivers from driving more than 11 hours per day, and they must have 10 consecutive hours off duty. 

Identifying liable parties is one of the most important jobs we do as truck accident attorneys in Georgia.
